1990 Augusta National Par-3 Contest Hole #5 Nearest The Flagstick Crystal Pitcher Won by John Huston


In 1958, the Par-3 Course was designed at the Augusta National by architect George Cobb and Clifford Roberts. The day before the Masters starts, the Par 3 contest (a tradition begun in 1960) is held on that course. The winner receives a crystal bowl, and those closest to the pin on each hole get prizes. “Only trophies and souvenirs are offered as prizes, but the competition is keen, and the contest attracts large numbers of patrons,” Augusta National co-founder Clifford Roberts wrote of the Par-3 Contest in his book, The Story of the Augusta National Golf Club. “It is, in fact, much more popular than the clinics, driving and iron play contests, and trick-shot entertainment staged on Wednesdays prior to the existence of our par-three course.” Roberts would no doubt be pleased with how the Par-3 Contest has grown. It is now televised live, and the demand for tickets is nearly as great as for a tournament day. John Huston was nearest to the flagstick on the 5th hole in 1990, with his sharp iron play translating into a T-3 Masters Tournament finish later that week. In excellent condition, offering an attractive cut glass display item of utmost quality to any collection. 6" tall to the top of the handle, with a width from the spout to the handle of 7 1/4".

The John Huston Collection

Former PGA Tour thoroughbred John Huston's extensive golfing accolades written on a piece of paper rivals that of a grocery shopping list to feed a family of 8 for three weeks. It includes: 7-time PGA Tour winner, former PGA Tour 72-hole scoring record holder of 28-under at the 1998 Hawaiian Open (7 stroke win over Tom Watson), inaugural United States Presidents Cup team member in 1994 and again chosen in 1998, amassing over 80 top-10 PGA Tour finishes, the course record at Jack's Muirfield Village of 61, Masters Tournament 18th hole record of 4-under in 1997 (also low round of the day for that Thursday) and Top 100 on the money list 16 of his first 17 years on tour. Through all of this, Huston's fame was overshadowed by his tour contemporaries with names such as: Tiger, Duval and Mickelson - and that's the way he liked it. While he didn't think of himself as a big deal, he was. United Airlines even gave John and his family free travel for a year after his 1998 Hawaiian Open triumph for the books. Between his collegiate golf at Auburn and the PGA Tour hard work paid off, and was necessary, earning everything that he achieved from mini-tours to The Tour. "I kept working with David (Leadbetter), but working in that bag room (of his home course Cypress Run in Tarpon Springs), seeing the hours you had to put in that was my inspiration," Huston said. When John felt the shot he took it. He was known as the Tour's fastest golfer, noted by analyst Gary McCord. Proudly presented by The Golf Auction is The John Huston Collection, featuring artifacts from Huston's very admirable golfing career.
