This international tournament lot includes an entire "spectator souvenir set," six additional tournament programs, and a course guide. The programs contain ads, notes about the tournament, player names, past championships, tournament rules, and history and maps regarding the course.
2004 35th Ryder Cup held at Oakland Hills Country Club in Bloomfield Township, Michigan and won by the European team by the largest margin of a European team in the history of the event! This coordinating set consists of a ticket to the International Pavilion (which is an upgraded experience beyond the standard admission!), a course map brochure, and the official tournament program.
This lot also includes six other tournament programs from the following international events:
The Curtis Cup International Golf Match (British Isles V United States of America) - held on September 11-12th, 1964 and played at Royal Porthcawl Golf Club in Porthcawl, South Wales. This was the first year it was played in a new expanded format--from 9 points to 18 and the United States won over Britain & Ireland 10.5 to 7.5.
The Walker Cup played at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club in Southampton, New York on August 26-27, 1977 and also won by the United States.
24th World Cup & International Golf Championship - held at the Wack Wack Golf and Country Club in Manila, Philippines on December 8-12, 1976. Fifty teams representing their countries competed, with Spain defending their championship from the year prior with players Seve Ballesteros and Antonio Garrido as the winning duo.
2nd Annual Canada Cup Matches - held at the Laval-sur-le-Lac Golf Club in Quebec, Canada in August 1954. It was won by the Australian team of Antonio Cerdá and Roberto De Vincenzo. (Years later this tournament would become the "World Cup.") This program is spiral bound.
29th Ryder Cup Matches - held at the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Golf Resort in Kiawah Island, South Carolina on September 27-29, 1991 -- won by United States.
31st Ryder Cup Matches - held at the East Course of Oak Hill Country Club in Pittsford, New York on September 22-24, 1995 and won by the European team (for the third consecutive Ryder Cup!).
Also included in this lot is a 90th PGA Championship Course Guide (Oakland Hills Country Club) from August 2008. This was a notable PGA Championship, as it was the first time in almost 80 years that the tournament had been won by a European-born player. Pádraig Harrington broke the streak that hadn't happened since Tommy Armour!
