Mark Calcavecchia's 1997 Masters Tournament Contestant Badge #79

Contestant badge #79 from the 1997 Masters Tournament is presented in this lot. The 1997 Masters will be remembered most for being the first of fourteen major championships won by Tiger Woods. Tiger didn't only win the tournament, he set records doing it, with his final score of 270 (-18) and 12 stroke advantage over the field holding as Masters records. He also became the youngest, at age 21, to win at Augusta National. Fittingly, the 1997 Masters Tournament Contestant Badge dons the color red. The Wincraft maker's mark is located on the reverse of the badge. The 1" diameter badge is in excellent condition and is expected to attract bidders looking to enhance their Masters collection.

Mark Calcavecchia Collection:

The 1989 ‘Champion Golfer of the Year’ was none other than 4-time US Ryder Cup Team Member and perennial top PGA Tour player, Mark Calcavecchia. A moment that any golfer dreams of having, Calcavecchia knew the magnitude of his accomplishment, with his name mentioned with the great champions of past going forward. As a testament to Calcavecchia’s easy going personality after the 1989 Open Championship in Royal Troon, he famously told a member of the press that he wasn’t aware of the tournament’s playoff format and jokingly asked “How’s my name going to fit on that thing?” Calcavecchia was of course referring to the engraving of his name on the Claret Jug. Calcavecchia has left his footprint all around the globe, amassing 29 victories across the PGA Tour, Asian Tour, PGA Tour of Australia among others over four decades from 1986 until 2018.

A Florida native since 1973, Calcavecchia has been in the spotlight numerous times in his career, with numerous notable victories and a runner up finish in the 1988 Masters Tournament. Calcavecchia’s final round of 70 made him leader in the clubhouse at 6-under par. Sandy Lyle did the unthinkable, birdieing Augusta National Golf Club’s final hole, negating a playoff finish the patrons were hoping for. His dominance at the Phoenix Open tournament continued in 2001, tying a PGA Tour record of 28 under par and winning his third Phoenix Open title. In 2009 Calcavecchia set a PGA Tour record by getting nine consecutive birdies at the RBC Canadian Open.

Many of Mark Calcavecchia’s finest on-course achievements worldwide are represented by items from his collection that The Golf Auction is proud to offer.
