He played collegiate tennis at Columbia University, where in 1904 and 1906 he won the National Collegiate Athletics Association singles championship. In 1907, he was a singles finalist at the U.S. National Championships, now known as the US Open, losing in straight sets to eventual seven times champion William Larned.
