John Montague (August 25, 1903 Syracuse, New York – May 25, 1972 Los Angeles, California[1]) was an American golfer, held by some to be among the greatest golfers in the world during the early 1930s.[2] He played some minor-league baseball. Under the name LaVerne Moore, which was his original birth name, he was charged with armed robbery and assault over a 1930 case in upper New York State, but was acquitted in a 1937 trial.
