Charles, Bob - Autographed Golf Ball

Born: March 14, 1936 in Carterton, New Zealand.

In 1963, Bob 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 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.

Charles has won about 80 tournaments around the world, and has finished in the top five countless times. As well as his important PGA victories, his win in the 1969 World Matchplay Championship was considered one of his best. He was also thrilled when in 1993 he won the Senior British Open 30 years after winning his British Open title. He remains, along with Michael Campbell, one of only two New Zealanders to win a major golfing championship.
