1973 The Walker Cup at The Country Club (Brookline) Team USA Contestant Badge - Danny Edwards

Employing traditional USGA contestant badge time-period design from 50 years ago, Team USA's Danny Edwards' typeface paper nameplate remains held inside as his identifier for that week. A stripe of black enamel rounds off the top of this badge with the meaningful 'Walker Cup Match.' This piece remains in very good condition, part of The Danny Edwards Collection.

The Country Club of Brookline in Massachusetts played backdrop for the 1973 Walker Cup. Former US Amateur Champion Jess Sweetser had a successful captaincy, guiding a United States Team with a roster than included Bill Rogers, Vinny Giles, Gary Koch and of course Danny Edwards to a 14-10 victory. A signed letter of provenance from Danny Edwards comes with this lot.

The Danny Edwards Collection

Flags, tracks and Danny Edwards. The 9-time champion professional golfer crossover race car driver's resume will never be duplicated. His autobiography titled 'Driven', co-authored by Bob Denney, used multiple meanings of the word - very fitting for the ambitious winner. Later an entrepreneur extraordinaire, Edwards developed/ founded Royal Grip Co., CEO of GreenFix Golf the innovative repair tool company, and founder of The Chipping Equation. Part of a golfing family, his younger brother David joined him on the tour in 1978. Past President of the Tour Players Association, Danny Edwards, notched five PGA Tour wins: 1977 Greater Greensboro Open, 1980 Walt Disney World National Team Championship, 1982 Greater Greensboro Open, 1983 Miller High Life GCO, and 1985 Pensacola Open. Prior to his PGA Tour card the decorated amateur was a 1972 Walker Cup Team Member, 1972 North and South Amateur champion, and 1973 Open Championship Low Amateur. Danny Edwards made 25 major championship cuts and had his card for 14 seasons prior to mastering other facets of life in business. His unprecedented story is furthered by The Danny Edwards Collection offering, proudly shared by The Golf Auction.

Hardcover copies of 'Driven' signed by author Danny Edwards are available for purchase for $25 by request to sales@thegolfauction.com
