Augusta National Golf Course opening round......

Item # 662657

January 15, 1933

NEW YORK TIMES, sport's section only, January 15, 1933

* Augusta National Golf Club course opening
* Founded by golfer Bobby Jones - Georgia

The bottom of the front page of this section has a two column heading: "Bobby Jones Celebrates Opening of Course By Scoring Sensational 69, Three Under Par" First report coverage on Jones playing his very first round of golf at the famed course just after it's opening. I suspect this is one of the few publications to report this particular event as other titles in our inventory do not.
Other sporting of the day. Complete sport's section only with all 8 pages, rag edition in nice condition.
