    1965 Vince Lombardi Tournament Used Golf Clubs and Bag - From Event at Jack Nicklaus' Home Course!
    "Golf is more than a game. I liken it to football because it makes many of the same demands football does. For example, it takes courage - it takes a lot of guts to play golf. And it takes a lot of stamina. It also takes coordinated efficiency - and you must be dedicated to win." - Vince Lombardi

    Representing Lombardi's other love than football, we are proud to present the legendary coach's personal golf clubs he used during the 1965 "Lost Tree Club Invitational" tournament. Played at the home course of golf legend Jack Nicklaus, who was a life-long friend of coach Lombardi, this lot includes an original leather bag, which presents an attached bag tag, which reads: "Lost Tree Club Invitational March 13, 14, 15 - 1965, VINCE LOMBARDI." Clubs include a 2 through 9 iron, sand wedge, putter and 1, 3 and 5 wood, while two personalized leather head covers read "VINCE LOMBARDI GREEN BAY PACKERS."

    Also included in this offering is an impressive 16x21.5" photo collage of Lombardi and Nicklaus from the memorable "Best Ball" tournament at Oneida Country Club in Green Bay. This event was held only a few months after the 1965 event where these clubs were used. The photo collage from famed Packers photographer Vernon Biever not only adds to the displayability of the club set, it also suggests the possibility that the offered clubs are actually the same as in the images.

    Originally obtained from "The Babe and George Zaharias Golf Foundation, Inc.," the clubs exhibit moderate wear, and to our knowledge are the first set of Lombardi golf clubs ever to hit the auction block. LOA from The Babe and George Zaharias Golf Foundation, Inc.
