The golf star and pilot signs his name on this Woodridge Golf Club ticket in pencil
Ticket signed: "Johnny Bulla" in pencil. 3½x2½. John Guthrie Bulla (1914-2003) was an American professional golfer. Bulla played on the PGA Tour, winning the 1941 Los Angeles Open, and finished runner-up three times in the majors, including twice to Sam Snead; at the British Open in 1946 and the Masters in 1949. Bulla's greatest moment might have been the British Open in 1939 at St Andrews. In miserable conditions, he drove flawlessly and never missed a fairway. The driver is on display in the Royal & Ancient Golf Club Museum, but his name is missing from the Claret Jug. Although Bulla never won a major, he finished in the top-10 12 times; twice each in the Masters and PGA Championship and four times each at the British Open and U.S. Open. In January 2000, the Carolinas Golf Reporters Association inducted Bulla into the Carolinas Golf Hall of Fame. He co-founded Arizona Airways, which became Frontier Airlines in 1950. Bulla was a private pilot and before World War II, he flew himself to various tournaments. He was later a commercial pilot with Eastern Airlines. Bulla was the first to endorse merchandise sold outside the golf pro shop. He won the L.A. Open in 1941 with a discount golf ball, which sold for a quarter at Walgreens. Toned. Corners rounded. Newspaper clippings affixed. Mounting residue on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
