1939 US Open Sectional Qualifying Rounds Contestant Badge

The '39 Open was tightly contested and went to a three-player 18 hole playoff. This easily could have been expanded to four or won outright by Sam Snead who took an eight on the final hole of play. In attendance that day and on the deciding 72nd hole for Snead was golfing legend, Bobby Jones. In the playoff,Byron Nelson and Craig Wood each shot 68 to eliminate Denny Shute who carded 76. This setup another playoff the following day highlighted by Lord Byron holing out a 215 yard one iron on the fourth hole for eagle to pace his 70-73 win over Wood. The 1939 Open was the only men's Championship contested at the historic Philadelphia Country Club, and also Nelson's lone Open victory among his five majors. Philadelphia C.C. had its origin in 1890 and was started as a Polo field and club for Philadelphia society. Here we have a 1 1/4" diameter vibrant, emerald green badge from the 1939 sectional qualifying for the 1939 US Open. Over 80 years later it exhibits strong, charcoal black text. The pin is missing from the badge, otherwise excellent condition.
