Offered here is an extraordinary collection of Ben Hogan's personal 1950s scorecards from famed Seminole Golf Club. The historic collection is highlighted by the actual scorecard from Ben Hogan's self-described "Lowest Round Ever Played." In that round, Hogan shot a 61 at Seminole Golf Club, and apparently only took 23 putts!

This collection includes 6 of Ben Hogan's personal scorecards from Seminole. They originate from his frequent playing partner Robert Sweeny, who won the 1937 US Amateur and finished 2nd to Arnold Palmer at the 1954 US Amateur. Hogan and Sweeny's other playing partners in these rounds include 1948 Masters Tournament Champion Claude Harmon and George Fazio. The Ben Hogan "Lowest Round Ever Played" scorecard is signed by Hogan, and Fazio signed it to attest to the score. 

Framed with an 8x10" photograph that Ben Hogan autographed to Robert Sweeny. Framed to an overall size of 38" x 31".
