Monty Waterbury Cup
James "Monty" Waterbury was a 10-goal player, always composed, in perfect control of himself, his pony and his mallet. Few players had a shorter yet more illustrious career than him, in his day he held the distinction of being the best scorer the game had ever seen.
Playing with The Wanderers, he won polo's very first U.S. Open in 1904. But he is perhaps best remembered as a member of the "Big Four", the U.S. team that won five Westchester Cup over Great Britain between 1909 and 1914.
In 1920, he died of a heart attack at the age of 45. Two years later, his friends and teammates played for the first Monty Waterbury Cup, at the Meadow Brook Club, in Westbury, Long Island, were it became a perpetual challenge trophy, open to all teams.
