Charles, Bob - Autographed Photo
Born: March 14, 1936 in Carterton, New Zealand
Bob Charles turned professional in 1960 and the next year won the New Zealand PGA Championship and soon after ventured overseas to the European and North American circuits.
In 1963, Charles really came to notice when he won his first PGA Tour event in the United States, the Houston Classic, the first PGA Tour event won by a left-handed golfer. His greatest moment came later that year when he won the British Open Championship at Royal Lytham and St. Annes. After four rounds (68,72,66,71) his 277 was level with American Phil Rodgers. Demonstrating unerring putting, Charles won the 36-hole playoff by eight shots.Golf Links To The Past is proud to guarantee the authenticity of every autograph we sell.
