As skilled in short and long games, Sam had especially managed the perfect swing gesture combining strength, flexibility and accuracy. Along with Jesse Owens, Babe Ruth, Bob Beamon or Cassius Clay, he could have been one of those legendary champions who have forever changed the technique of their sport, but unfortunately he never won the US Open.
Heritage is dispersing the memories of Sam Snead. At the first sale on August 1, 2013, the 1946 British Open trophy was sold for $ 263K including premium.
The club used by Sam Snead from 1936 to 1953 is for sale on September 25 in Dallas, lot 80001. Throughout this long period when he won over one hundred tournaments, Sam Snead had systematically used this piece of equipment.
I invite you to play the video shared by Heritage for introducing the first sale, where you can admire the beauty and especially the repetition of the perfect swing by this great champion.
