First edition copy of From Tee to Cup by the Four Masters—Gene Sarazen, Denny Shute, Ralph Guldahl, and Johnny Revolta. Published by Wilson Sporting Goods in 1937, this hardcover book is full of instruction, insight, and photographs covering truly everything from tee to cup! This copy bears the name of one of the authors, 1939 Masters champ Ralph Guldahl, writttn in longhand. This signature was likely executed by Guldahl’s secretary, who was known to sign for Ralph.

A fascinating article from Sports Illustrated (September 2020) highlighted the mystery surrounding Ralph with the byline: "In the late 1930s, Guldahl, a quiet Texan, seemed to be the heir apparent to Bobby Jones, winning 3 consecutive Western Opens and a Masters to go with back-to-back U.S. Opens, but then everything changed."
