Gay Brewer's Jerry Ford Golf Invitational Shirt

From a time in which tournaments where hosted by Hollywood A-listers Bing Crosby and Bob Hope, the then most recent President of the United States Gerald Ford enjoyed the first days of retirement as the host of the Vail Colorado tournament under his slightly more informal namesake. The 'Jerry Ford Golf Invitational' attracted top touring professionals and celebrities alike, such as Gay Brewer and Jack Nicklaus, from its inception in 1977 for the next 20 years. This lot contains Gay Brewer's personal Jerry Ford Invitational bright red button down shirt with the tournaments embroidered chest logo. Composed of 100% cotton by the GS Classic clothier, this size large golf shirt remains in good condition as depicted in the accompanying lot photos. A Letter of Provenance signed by Bob Boring will accompany this lot.

The Bob Boring Collection

Professional caddy, world recognized clubmaker and friend of 1967 Masters Champion Gay Brewer, Robert 'Bob' Boring has been all around the game of golf. On the bag for legends such as Sam Snead, Bobby Nichols and Brewer, there was never a dull moment. Boring's stories include: betting Gay whether an alligator would eat a golf ball and saving Snead from a charging superfan. Oh, to be a fly on the...green? The Golf Auction is proud to present the collection of Bob Boring that showcases numerous personal items of Gay Brewer's including what was initially the "untouchable" - Brewer's winning 1967 Masters Tournament putter with an interesting story to come with it. Boring was once asked by Sports Illustrated about Brewer's thoughts on the tournament he once won. "Augusta National and the Masters are every bit as important to Gay as they are to Arnold Palmer," said (Gay Brewer's) friend and former caddie, Bob Boring. "Gay was defined by that '67 Masters."
