Willie MacFarlane Signed Cut

On this vintage piece of cut paper is 1925 US Open winner Willie MacFarlane's flowing signature. MacFarlane, like many British golfers of his era, took a position as a club professional in the United States. In 1925 he won the U.S. Open at Worcester Country Club. After tying Bobby Jones over the first 72 holes, the two men played an 18-hole playoff and both of them shot 75. Macfarlane won a second 18-hole playoff by 72 shots to Jones' 73. Of interesting note, Jones was getting set to hit an iron shot in the first round when he felt his club move the ball ever so slightly. With Jones being his only witness, it was up to him to be the judge. Jones said he was certain the ball had moved and therefore penalized himself. The decision may have cost him the title, but it has been a mainstay to Jones's legacy. After the adoration came from fans about his sportsmanship, Jones infamously replied "You might as well praise me for not robbing a bank." a scant amount of adhesive remnants can be found at the top of this cut, not affecting the signature itself. James Spence Authentication (JSA) has reviewed this signature and their auction letter of authenticity comes with this lot.
