1969 Ryder Cup at Royal Birkdale Golf Club Program- Jack Nicklaus "The Concession"


The 1969 contest was held at Royal Birkdale Golf Club in Southport, England. The competition ended in a draw at 16 points each, when America's Jack Nicklaus conceded a misable putt to Britain's Tony Jacklin at the 18th hole. It was one of the most famous gestures of sportsmanship in all of sport. It was the first draw in Ryder Cup history, and the United States team retained the Cup. During one of the four balls on the second day, amid bad sportsmanship behavior from both teams, both captains had to come out and calm down the players. This led to Nicklaus conceding Jacklin's final putt with the knowledge that the tournament would end in a draw. Nicklaus' gesture became known as "the concession". Program remains fully intact with strong spine in good condition. It is in very good condition.
