    1950's Francis Ouimet Signed Photograph. Twenty year old Francis Ouimet, a local caddie, stunned the golf world with an upset victory in the 1913 US Open at The Country Club in Brookline, Mass. His shocking win came in a playoff against British stars Ted Ray and Harry Vardon. Ouimet won the US Amateur the next year and again in 1931 and became the first American to become Captain of The Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews. This item is a rare 8 X 10 color photo inscribed to his longtime friend, host golf pro at Siwanoy Tom Kerrigan. Red ink survives at a bold 9+/10, and photo is a little rough along right border but image area remains free of any distractions, a genuine NRMT. LOA from Mark Emerson. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
