BOB HOPE (1903-2003) was born in England, moving with his family to the U.S. when he was four. A popular vaudeville performer from the 1920s, he starred in Broadway musicals of the 1930s, including Roberta and Red, Hot and Blue. Among the most popular of his 53 films were the "Road to ..." movies with Bing Crosby and Dorothy Lamour, beginning with The Road to Singapore (1940). He won three honorary awards from the Academy of Motion Pictures (1940, 1944, 1965). Seven months before Pearl Harbor, he appeared in the first of his shows for American servicemen, a tradition he would continue through a Persian Gulf tour in 1991. His success as a comedian continued unabated from radio to television with the long-running Bob Hope Show (1950-1967) and with guest appearances continuing through 1992. A well known philanthropist, friend to Presidents, and avid golfer with his own tournament (the Bob Hope Desert - later Chrysler - Classic, begun in 1960), Hope has made an enduring contribution to American culture. Puerto Rican golfer JUAN "CHI CHI" RODRIGUEZ, one of the most popular figures in sports, had eight PGA Tour victories (1963-1979) and won 22 senior (now Champions Tour) tournaments (1986-1993). His charitable foundation has raised more than $5 million for children. LEE TREVINO, born 1939 and also known as "SuperMex", won 27 PGA tournaments, including six major championships: the U.S. Open (1968, 1971), the British Open (1971, 1972) and the PGA Championship (1974, 1984). After joining the Senior Tour (now the Champions Tour) in 1990, he surpassed his PGA totals, winning 29 tournaments. Also a member of seven Ryder Cup teams (and Captain of the U.S. Ryder Cup team in 1985), Trevino was inducted into the PGA's World Golf Hall of Fame in 1981. Three items. Presented in Gallery of History pedestal style: base, 13½x11x1; balls in 2x2x2-inch cases.
