Horton Smith Large Format George Pietzcker Photo

Golfing luminary Horton Smith notably won the first Masters Tournament in 1934 and followed it up two years later with yet another victory on the manicured grounds in Augusta, Georgia. The camera eye which captured this image was George Pietzcker, a remarkable photographer from St. Louis, who covered the golf seen from the early 1910's till mid 1930's. During this time period, he was the official photographer for the United States Golf Association creating a visual record of the country's national championships and champions. Posed in a suit coat and with perfectly parted hair was 'The Joplin Ghost' born in Springfield, Missouri. This incredible large format photograph carries the Pietzcker trademark in the bottom right corner in the same white ink and hand of 'Horton Smith' is written beside it to its left. Golf photography collectors clamor for George Pietzcker's work, with Horton Smith content bringing this piece to the top of the acquisition list.
