Offered here is an original program from the 1929 Open Championship, which was held at Muirfield and famously won by the great Walter Hagen. This program contains over 35 autographs of participants at the tournament. Most notably, it contains a bold signature of the '29 Open Champion Walter Hagen, who won by 6 strokes over Johnny Farrell. The program is also autographed by a slew of Major Champions and early golf stars: Tommy Armour, Horton Smith, Henry Cotton, Jim Barnes, Johnny Golden, Ed Dudley, Arnaud Massey, George Duncan, Al Espinosa, Alf Perry, MacDonald Smith, Ted Ray, Wild Bill Melhorn, Johnny Farrell, Arthur Havers, and Cyril Tolley. The program is framed with a partial partial Stewards badge from the 1929 Open, which is presumably the person who obtained these autographs at that famed golf tournament.
