1999 Ryder Cup Money Clip

The 33rd Ryder Cup, also known as the "Battle of Brookline", was held at The Country Club in Brookline, MA.

The American team won the competition by a margin of 14 1/2 to 13 1/2, The Europeans, leading 10–6 heading into the final round, needed only 4 points on the final day to retain the cup. The Americans rallied on Sunday, winning the first 6 matches of the day to take the lead. Further wins by Steve Pate and Jim Furyk took them into a 14–12 lead. The Americans recaptured the Ryder Cup when Justin Leonard halved his match with José María Olazábal. With the match all-square Leonard holed a 45-foot birdie putt on the 17th hole. After controversial premature celebrations on the green, Olazabal then missed his 22-foot birdie putt to leave Leonard one up with just one hole to play, assuring him of a half point and guaranteeing an American victory.

This metal and enamel money clip from the 1999 Ryder Cup is in good condition.
