American golfer BYRON NELSON (1912-2006) was called a "mechanical" golfer because his play was so consistent. Nelson, who won the Masters in 1937 and 1942, the U.S. Open in 1939 and the PGA Championship in 1940 and 1945, won a record 11 consecutive golf tournaments in 1945. He was elected to the PGA Hall of Fame in 1953 and the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1974. Golf champion TOM WATSON (b. 1949), who graduated from Stanford University in 1971 with a degree in psychology, joined the Professional Golfers Association tour in 1972. Named PGA Player of the Year six times, he won 39 PGA tournaments (1974-1998), including eight majors, before joining the PGA Senior (now Champions) Tour. Watson's wins include Masters titles in 1977 and 1981, the PGA Championship in 1980 and 1984, the U.S. Open in 1982 and the World Series of Golf in 1980. A five-time winner of the British Open (1975, 1977, 1980, 1982, 1983) and two-time winner of the Senior British Open, he was made an honorary member of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews in 1999. Watson was the leading money winner on the PGA tour from 1977-1980 and again in 1984. Australian golfer DAVID GRAHAM(b. 1946) turned pro in 1962 and joined the U.S. Tour in 1971. His victories include the PGA Championship (1979) and the U.S. Open (1981) as well as the Cleveland Open (1972), American Express Westchester Classic (1976), American Golf Classic (1976) and the Australian Open (1977). Graham, who also won the World Match play at Wentworth, has had five victories on the Champions Tour. LANNY WADKINS (b. 1949) is an American golfer. Even before Wadkins went pro in 1971, he'd compiled an impressive list of victories and honors, winning the Southern Amateur (1968, 1970), the Eastern Amateur (1969, 1970) and the U. S. Amateur (1970) and being named an NCAA All-American twice (1970, 1971). Known for his competitiveness and iron work on the course, Wadkins has won 30 professional tournaments, including the 1977 PGA Championship. He also played on the Ryder Cup's American team eight times between 1977 and 1993, winning five times, and was captain in 1995. Fine condition.
