Second try: What about William Temple Withers born c. 1865.
Seems to be prominent enough to me:
From Lexington, Kentucky per newspapers.
From Kentucky death index:
Name: William Tilden Withers
Given Name: William Tilden
Birth: 7 Nov 1876 in Meade County, Kentucky
Occupation in censuses - farm labourer - unlikely that this man is a golfer.
