    Description

    1917 Jerry Travers World War I Golf Memorabilia Lot of 3. This lot consists of three items--a bronze medal and two paper tags--all relating to Jerome D. Travers' participation in World War I golf events. The medal appears to be bronze with a worn gold wash and has a red, white & blue ribbon attached through the loop at the top, and is enameled with the American and British flags. It reads, "PGA War Relief Tournament 1917." The event was a grand affair played over four courses and as many days. It pitted British professionals against American professionals against American amateurs and involved more than forty golfers. Some of the matches were match play, some medal play. In the end, the American pros came out on top with the most points, while the American amateurs finished third. Travers was one of the American amateurs and this medal commemorates his participation in the grand event. The first paper tag is from a Red Cross match between Jerry and Mrs. Wm. A. Gavin from Sept. 16th, 1917, and the second is from a Red Cross Match on Sept. 8th, 1917 where Jerry Travers & Oswald Kirkby faced Francis Ouimet & Jesse Guilford. A nice grouping of Jerry Travers memorabilia.
