Product Description

An original complete magazine with Bobby Jones on a cover dated July 8, 1926. This is New York Times' Mid-Week Pictorial. Size is 11 1/2" x 16 1/2".

This is Bobby Jones win at the 1926 British Open at Royal Lytham and St. Annes, Scotland. Very rare item.

There was no bigger year at Royal Lytham than in 1926 when King George V bestowed the "Royal" title to the club, and it hosted its first British Open Championship. It was at Royal Lytham that Bobby Jones won the first of his remarkable recovery from the fairway bunker on the 71st hole, where a brass plaque in the sand and grass now marks the spot. However, Jones suffered the ultimate embarrassment. At the 18th hole, turn on the 36 hole finale, he returned to his hotel room for a sandwich, then forgot his palyers' badge and was refused entry by a stubborn guard. He had to pay for a ticket and proceeded to win by two strokes over Al Watrous. It wood be 70 years and eight opens before another American (Tom lehman) won a British Open         at St. Annes-On-Sea.
