The Francis X. Hussey Memorial is a better-ball of partners event.

Francis X. Hussey, the tournament’s namesake, was a Junior member of Rolling Green. He suffered from congenital heart disease and died in December 1983 while undergoing major heart surgery. He was 13 years old when he died. Francis was a student in the Haverford Township school system, an avid sports fan and an active Junior member at Rolling Green. His courage in the face of his illness was a great inspiration to all who knew him.
