Lewis Rodman Wanamaker Black and White Photo - Framed


Wanamaker was a department store magnate and had several outside endeavors, and his connection to the golf world came after he invited a group of 35 prominent golfers and leading industry representatives to a luncheon at the Taplow Club in New York in January 1916. The luncheon was designed to be an exploratory meeting, and ultimately resulted in the formation of the Professional Golfers' Association of America (PGA). Wanamaker hinted during the meeting that the newly formed PGA would need an annual professional tournament and offered money, trophies, and medals to form a prize fund. Months later, the first PGA Championship was played at Siwanoy Country Club in Bronxville, New York. The tournament has evolved into one of golf's four major championship tournaments, and PGA Tour golfers now compete for the Wanamaker Trophy. This Lewis Rodman Wanamaker portrait appears to have the photographer Conrad Haeseler and 1922 written in the top left corner. Image measures 14" x 20", frame 27" x 33". Excellent condition
