1996 Las Vegas Invitational Caddy Series Badge #00071 - Tiger Woods' First Pro Victory


The 'debut' and '1st's' ticket/badge category has been the fastest growing in not only golf memorabilia, but all of sport - a long overlooked category of tangible items representing a time and place in which a significant event occurred. And while a handful of Tiger Woods' first PGA Tour start (1992 LA Open) and professional start (1996 GMO) have surfaced since the the newest and most aggressive market trend has taken ahold, Tiger Woods' first professional win at the 1996 Las Vegas Invitational has left collectors still searching - until now. This blue and white plastic 'Caddy' badge has been sourced from that caddy himself, one of the best to ever do it in Linn Strickler.

While the win came only a month and change after turning professional, Tiger's first victory was no easy task as the challenging course saw Woods and Davis Love III enter a sudden death playoff to determine the victor. Going into the tournament spectators did not know the importance of what many considered another stop on the tour schedule prior.

Presented in this lot is a 1996 Las Vegas Invitational Caddy Badge #00071 used as credentials to gain access to the course in what is not looked at as a historic tournament. It would be the 20 year old Tiger Woods' professional coming out party, an official warning to the field of arrival. This vibrant blue badge is in good condition exhibiting some slight usage, with its original pin found on the verso. Tiger's first of a record 82 has a nice ring to it. The search is over.
