Unusual original program from the 1944 Portland Open, which was won by Sam Snead. The Portland Open was added to the PGA Tour at the height of the Second World War. The tournament was played off and on over the years for a total of 12 times, with 8 of the 12 winner's trophies going to Sam Snead, Ben Hogan, Billy Casper, and Jack Nicklaus. This is a rare program from the inaugural Portland Open in 1944, which was won of Sam Snead's record 82 PGA Tour victories. The program has an innovative design - a handle built into the side for easy transport on the golf course while watching play.
