Lot Information

Celebrating 100 years of the Open Championship this is special celebration program, but due to severe weather conditions for all 4 days, a program without a centre fold crease is very rare. Comments from the great Arnold Palmer 'In 1960 the weather was just like it is now on one of the days of the Championship, Palmer said after Wednesday's past-champions contest was washed out by sideways-spitting rain and chilly North Sea gusts. 'The wind blew, it rained, and I said something about it then, and I got the same answer: 'Hey, this is Scotland and you've got to expect it.' And I loved it.' In a way it was fitting that Palmer's four-hole round got rained out today, because that happened to him 50 years ago too. 'After the third round [in 1960], I was in the Rusacks Hotel and I was looking out the window, and my father and a friend was with me and it started raining,' Palmer said. 'They said, 'It's raining hard, Arnie.' I said, 'Yeah, don't worry about it. The Open Championship has never been rained out. That's number one. Number two, the Open Championship has never been played on a weekend.'' Of course, his second round on Friday was rained out (back then, they played 18 on Wednesday, 18 on Thursday and 36 on Friday), and he finished the tournament on a Saturday, losing by one stroke after finishing par-birdie. This issue still retains all 4 drawsheet tickets. A great program
