Herman Densmore "Denny" Shute (October 25, 1904 – May 13, 1974) was an American professional golfer who won three major championships in the 1930s.

Life and career

Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Shute was the son of a golf pro from England; Hermon emigrated to the United States to work as the assistant professional at the Euclid Club. Shute was raised in West Virginia and Ohio and attended Western Reserve University (now Case Western Reserve University) in Cleveland, and was a member of Phi Gamma Delta. He was married on March 20, 1930 to Hettie Marie Potts, and they had one child, a daughter, Nancy Paige.
Shute won the Open Championship at St Andrews in 1933 in a playoff and the 1936 and 1937 PGA Championships, then conducted at match play. He was the last man to win consecutive PGA Championships before Tiger Woods did so in 1999 and 2000.
Shute was a member of the U.S. team in the Ryder Cup on three occasions: 1931, 1933, and 1937. In 1933, he missed a putt to tie the competition.
Shute died at age 69 at his home in Akron, Ohio. He was elected to the World Golf Hall of Fame in the veterans category in 2008.
