1959 The Walker Cup at Muirfield Program Signed by Team Including Nicklaus


In May of 1959, Jack Nicklaus traveled as a 19-year-old Ohio State Freshman to Scotland with the United States team to compete in the Walker Cup matches against Great Britain, held at the fast playing Muirfield. U.S. team member Harvie Ward always up for a good time gave each of his teammates nicknames with Nicklaus carrying the tag "Snow White", Ward did not let up on himself carrying the nickname ("E. Mickey Mouse"). The relaxed mood around the team carried through to victory in what many call the finest U.S. squad assembled. Nicklaus was 2-0-0 winning in foursomes and easily winning a singles match 5 & 4. This lot features an early career signature for Jack Nicklaus by his picture, as well as the rest of the United States team including Tommy Aaron and Deane Beman. Including with many of the British teams signatures are Henry Cotton and Dai Rees.
