Old Tom Morris Original Signature on Sepia Photograph. Signed by a Steel-Tip Fountain Black Pen. Size 12" x 15". Photograph is by James Patrick. Includes letter of Authentication from James Spence. Tom Morris won the Open Championship (British Open) in 1861, 1862, 1864 and 1867. He still holds the record as the oldest winner of the Open Championship at 46. Old Tom started as a caddy, but was also a greenskeeper, club maker, ball maker, instructor, and course designer during his decades of service to golf. Old Tom returned to St. Andrews in 1865 as a greenskeeper and professional. St. Andrews was then in very poor condition, and his first task was to correct this. He did so by widening the fairways, enlarging the greens. He build two new greens on hole 1 and 18 and managing the hazards. He stayed in the post until 1903, a total of 39 years. Morris held the record for the largest margin of victory in a major championship (14strokes in the 1862 Open Championship), which stood until Tiger Woods won the 2000 US Open by 15 strokes. Despite Morris' long life and decades of fame, autographed material is exceedingly scarce, with signed images all but non-existent. Its a nice bold signature.
