1942 Ryder Cup Team Golf Bag Issued to Sam Snead.
hostilities that would swell into the Second World War, and the
reconstruction that followed the armistice, suspended the playing
of this friendly international competition between the years of
1937 and 1947, though the PGA of America continued to name teams
during this period, with the players participating in domestic
exhibitions. Presented is what may be the only surviving golf bag
issued to members of the 1942 American squad, an exceedingly rare
brown leather relic affixed with a patriotic metal plate
announcing, "U.S.A. Ryder Cup Team, P.G.A. 1942, Sam Snead."
A golden embossed "MacGregor" manufacturer's mark appears beneath
the handle. The bag exhibits solid game wear but has survived the
passage of seven decades quite well, with a broken zipper the only
issue of note beyond general wear and soiling. A "World Golf Hall
of Fame" tag dangling from the strap hook clearly dates to decades
later, applied when the bag was on display there. A splendid relic
from the year of Snead's first Major win (PGA Championship). Height
thirty-six inches. Letter of provenance from Jack Snead.
