Coody, Charles - Autographed Golf Ball
Born: July 13, 1937 in Stamford, TX.
In 1971 Charles Coody won The Masters, his only major title. This tournament would evolve into a three man race between Nicklaus, Johnny Miller and Charles Coody. Nicklaus, the heavy favorite, led after 54 holes. Miller had started slowly, shooting 72-73 but heated up on the weekend shooting a pair of 68s. Coody fired a 66 on Thursday and never lost sight of the leaders. Nicklaus shot 72 on Sunday and uncharacteristically lost his lead. With four holes to play, Coody was 2-strokes behind Miller. Two Miller bogeys and two Coody birdies gave Charles Coody the green jacket and a 2-stroke victory over Miller and Nicklaus.
The 1971 Masters would be the last for Bobby Jones. In December of 1971, the founder of Augusta National and The Masters passed away.Golf Links To The Past is proud to guarantee the authenticity of every autograph we sell.
