Comparable to Phil Mickelson many decades later, World Golf Hall of Famer Craig Wood's early career was highlighted to close calls and near misses. Before he won both the Masters Tournament and US Open in 1941, Craig Wood had 12 Top 10s in Major Championships, including a heart breaking 5 2nd place finishes.
Offered here is Craig Wood's actual 2nd place silver medal from the 1934 PGA Championship. Paul Runyan needed extra holes to defeat Craig Wood in the match play finals in 38 holes.
The early PGA Championship medals from the era are large and impressive. 2" diameter and 81 grams of sterling silver.
