1957 Masters Tournament Spectator Guide - Doug Ford Winner


Augusta National started the tradition of publishing a Spectator guide for Patrons to review and to help assist patrons in finding the best spots to watch the Tournament. These guides from the 1950's are challenging to locate as attendance was much lower, then in the 60's to the present. In sports history there is nothing like calling your success in advance, and then producing. In the 1932 World Series Babe Ruth pointed to the stands, and then produced a home run. At a Thursday media gathering prior to the 1969 Super Bowl Joe Namath "guaranteed" that his heavy underdog New York Jets team would be victorious, he followed up leading the Jets to victory and earning game MVP honors in Super Bowl III. In the golfing world Doug Ford made a similar boast, predicting two weeks prior to the 1957 Masters that he would win with a score of 283. It took a Sunday charge, shooting a final round 66, capped by a birdie 3 at the 18th, where he holed out from the bunker. Oh yes, in winning Ford shot exactly 283. It is in good condition, with slight paper loss and a folded corner on the reverse cover as seen in the pictures.
