Francis Ouimet Signed Postcard


Deserving recipient of the moniker "Father of Amateur Golf" and winner of the 1913 US Open at Country Club, Brookline's own Francis Ouimet penned his name on this postcard below a personal message he handwrote to a dear friend. Ouimet created one of the most storied victories in golf history, victorious at his home course. Adding to the lore was Ouimet's chosen partner in crime, famously employing 10-year old caddy Eddie Lowery. "Maurey: The Essex tournament ____ nothing without you. I hope you are having a wonderful summer. Hope to see you soon. - Francis Ouimet." This is written on the message side in ink by the hand of Francis Ouimet of this hand-colored postcard depicting the Essex Country Club clubhouse at Manchester by the Sea, Massachusetts. The postmarked postcard carries a strong signature from Ouimet in blue ink that could be used for framing with a photo if desired. James Spence Authentication (JSA) has reviewed this signature and their auction letter of authenticity comes with this lot.
