1934 First Masters Tournament Official Program

1934 First Masters Tournament Official Program

Program from the first ever Masters held in 1934 at iconic Augusta National. The tournament was devised by legendary golfer Bobby Jones and Clifford Roberts, and was to be played on the course Jones acquired in 1930 after winning the Grand Slam that year. At the time the first was held, the tournament was known officially as the Augusta National Invitation Tournament, which can be seen on the program's cover, but even then it was still informally referred to as the Masters. There is writing on the cover of the program by the original owner, as well as writing inside, including a detailing of events of later Masters tournaments including 1936. On the opening page, there is a handwritten excerpt reading "This is the only program I can find all of the later ones are gone." On page 14, there is a handwritten excerpt next to a photo of hole seventeen, reading "This pix was taken before we bought the property," with an arrow where a "house" was built. Next to the photo, the person who gifted this program crossed out "Seventeenth" and wrote "Now the 8." There are a few other holes throughout the book that have the hole number crossed out and handwritten with a different number. On page 27, the "General Plan" of the course, there is a drawing of a section on the left side where his/her house was built with a "Rhombic Ant" next to it. This program was gifted by the man whose house was later built on the course, and given to the owner named on the front cover. The tournament was won by Horton Smith, who sank a crucial birdie putt on 17, with a score of -4, just one stroke ahead of Craig Wood. The program is VG-EX with minor wear to cover.
