The Don Cherry Collection
Don Cherry was a nightclub headline singer by profession in the 1950's and 60's with a hit song entitled "Band of Gold". His most lucrative work would come as the voice of animated character Mr. Clean in TV detergent commercials of the time. Singer by night, but accomplished golfer by day, Cherry was so good he would turn to professional golf in 1962, after a considerable career as an amateur. In 1952, he was a semifinalist in the United States Golf Association Amateur and was chosen for the Walker Cup team in 1953, 1955, and 1961. He won all singles and foursome matches in which he played. During the '52 Amateur he defeated Frank Stranahan and Gene Littler in third and fourth round matches. The following year in '53 he captured the Canadian Amateur Championship, and followed up in '54 with a win at the prestigious Sunnehanna Amateur. Cherry was a contestant in nine Masters Tournaments, making seven cuts. His closest brush with a Major victory came at the 1960 US Open, as an amateur, when he contended into the fourth round eventually finishing in a three way tie with Ben Hogan for ninth place at even par, four strokes back of the come-from-behind champion Arnold Palmer.
