1950 British Amateur Championship Sterling Silver Runner-Up Medal Awarded to Dick Chapman with Letter


Few affirmations ring louder than TIME Magazine's crowning of Dick Chapman as "The Ben Hogan of Amateur Golf." The 1940 US Amateur and 1951 British Amateur victor earned it, finding an importance of staying an amateur throughout his career similar to other greats. Offered in this lot is the 1950 British Amateur Championship Sterling Silver Runner-Up Medal Awarded to Dick Chapman at the hallowed St. Andrews Links from the Royal & Ancient, a runner-up that would set him up for his victory the following year. Fellow Amateur heavyweight Frank Stranahan took care of business at The Old Course in 1950 with an 8 and 6 finish over Chapman. Included in this lot is a signed leather of authenticity from Richard D. Chapman, the Greenwhich, Connecticut golfer Dick Chapman's son.

This elegant medal of accomplishment from the R&A carries the inscription inside the laurels: "FINALIST 1950", and directly below that one will find its hallmark sterling stamp.
