1953 PGA Championship at Birmingham CC Program - Walter Burkemo Winner


Walter Burkemo was an excellent match player, he fought his way to the final round of the PGA Championship three times in four years. In 1951 he ran afoul of Sam Snead and was beaten. In 1953 he would win 2 and 1 over Felice Torza at Birmingham (Mich) C.C.and in 1954, he lost to the long hitting Chick Harbert. In the entire history of the PGA Championship being contested as match play (which would be the format through 1957), only five players (all Hall of Famers) would reach the finals more often then Burkemo: James Barnes, Walter Hagen, Gene Sarazen, Byron Nelson and Sam Snead. This PGA Championship program from Burkemo's win in 1953 remains in excellent to near mint condition. It contains the spiral binding for media use. This binding made it easier for newspaper men to lay the publication flat, garnering vital information as they typed their story. The program is in very good condition.
