Lot Information

Ian Baker-Finch worked his way up in the professional golf world from his beginnings in a small farming town in Australia, where he earned a number of junior golf titles before the age of 15. He then qualified for the PGA Tour of Australasia, where he won his first Tour event in 1983 at the New Zealand Open. In doing so, he qualified for the 1984 British Open at St. Andrews where he surprised the world with a lead after the first three rounds. Multiple victories in Australia, Europe, and Japan followed before he joined the PGA Tour as a rookie in 1989. Ian won the Colonial Invitational that year and The Open Championship at Royal Birkdale in 1991. He also represented Australia many times during his playing career including at the World Cup in 1985, World Tours Championships from 1985-1991, and the Dunhill Cup in 1989 and 1992. In 1996, Ian served as fellow Australian Peter Thomson?s Co-Captain for the International President?s Cup Team. Gary Player then appointed Ian as Assistant Captain for his International Teams in South Africa in 2003, in Virginia in 2005, and again in Montreal in 2007. Ian regards those four weeks as some of the most memorable times in his career, representing his country alongside so many of the world?s greats. More recently, Ian served as Golf Team Leader for both the men?s and women?s Australian Olympic golf teams for the 2016 Rio Olympics, the first Olympics in 100 years for the sport.
