Ben Hogan Signed 1953 Open Champion’s Challenge Certificate with Envelope


Few names in the history of the great game of golf get more respect than Ben Hogan. Coming from very little, Hogan had to work for everything he was ever given and that's the way he preferred it. In 1953, before the largest gallery in Open history, Ben Hogan's Sunday round 68 was a new single round course record at Carnoustie. His 72 hole score of 282 was also the lowest score in the history of the Open Championship. There was nothing stopping him, as Hogan had claimed his third straight Major title of the year. He returned to the States for a New York ticker tape parade which was followed by a similar parade in his hometown of Fort Worth on Monday July 27th. The local 'Daily Mail' publication sponsored a day for Hogan's fans to interact with the legend himself with help from the British Golf Foundation in October of that year. His net score of 71 was enough to "beat" the 'British Open Champion' by a single stroke and receive a certificate from The Open Champion's Challenge signed in ballpoint pen by Ben Hogan just above his newest accolade. It will now be presented to the winning bidder of this offering, paying homage to Ben Hogan's great year of 1953. James Spence Authentication (JSA) has reviewed this signature and their auction letter of authenticity comes with this lot.
