United States of America: U.S.G.A., 1941. Photographs within, including a two-page aerial view of the Colonial Club links. 25.5x16.3 cm. (10x6½"), original white saddle-stitched wrappers, with colour photograph illustration on front cover. Complete with draw sheet.
With articles on two favorites to win, Byron Nelson and Ben Hogan. The winner of the 1941 US Open was Craig Wood. After a poor showing early on, Wood wanted to withdraw from competition, but Tommy Armour convinced him to play on. Wood was also wearing a corset, to help his ailing back from an injury two weeks prior. This was the last Open to be played before World War II disrupted play until 1946. According to an article within, Bobby Jones attended the Open, not as a competitor of course, but as a spectator. Original glassine wrapper still present, but chipped, some damp staining to pages, still a presentable copy of a hard to find program. Item #6175
