1959 'The Positive Approach to Better Golf' by Cary Middlecoff Booklet


Cary Middlecoff left his position as a dentist to become a professional golfer and never looked back, going on to win three major championships (US Open in 1949, 1956 and 1955 Masters). Here he left his signature on the cover of the 1957 Sports Illustrated previewing the 1957 US Open. Middlecoff came close to defending his title, losing to Dick Mayer in an 18 hole playoff. Offered here is an instructional pamphlet by Middlecoff from 1959 in great condition.

**THE JOHN ROTH COLLECTION**
The September Auction features many items from the collection of John Roth (1940-2015.) John spent 25 years amassing a collection of golf memorabilia and golf antiques that would rival most of the golf museums around the globe. John had a passion for the history and nuance of the game, its traditions and the ever-changing evolution of the manufacture of its equipment. John was a member of the Golf Collectors Society, and actively participated in many of its events around the country. John was also a long-time player in the Society of Hickory Golfers’ tournaments around the country, which honor the traditions of the game by playing with antique, wooden-shafted clubs. During his lifelong participation in the two organizations, John won or placed highly in several tournaments and made many lifelong friends with whom he found camaraderie in his pursuit of all things golf. It is his family’s wish that the items that John treasured so much find loving new homes where they can continue to be enjoyed and tell the history of the sport that meant so much to their husband and father.
