The PGA Tour returned to Philadelphia in mid-September 1955, six years after the last Philadelphia Inquirer Open had been played. The 1955 event was won by Ted Kroll in a playoff over Doug Ford when both finished 72 holes with a one-over-par score of 273. The 1956 event was won by Dick Mayer in a playoff with Bud Holscher. During the two years that the event played, only Mayer and Holscher were under par for 72 holes. The winners check in both events was $4,000 out of a purse of $20,000.
