1926 Spaldings Athletic Library No. 3x Golf Guide Playing Rules of The USGA - Bobby Jones Cover

Spalding used a historically significant black and white picture of golden boy Bobby Jones holding his US Amateur prize with an intriguing history for their 1926 golf guide. Charles B. Macdonald was awarded this ornate sterling silver trophy, donated by the USGA’s first president Theodore Havemeyer, upon winning the inaugural U.S. Amateur in 1895 at Newport (R.I.) Country Club. When Robert T. Jones Jr. won the 1925 U.S. Amateur at Oakmont Country Club, he brought the trophy to his home club, East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta. It remained on display until November 22, 1925 when a fire ravaged the clubhouse and destroyed the trophy. After this tragedy, the USGA selected a new design for the U.S. Amateur trophy that has been awarded since 1926. In 1995, the USGA created a replica of the original Havemeyer Trophy as part of a larger effort to replicate and retire the original championship trophies for preservation purposes. As no drawings or specifications existed, the replica of the Havemeyer Trophy was created using photographs of the original as a guide, including one of Bob Jones to assist with scale and proportions.
