A 1921 Open Golf Championship Order of Play,
for Friday 24 June at St Andrews, with a crossed Union Flag and Stars and Stripes on the front cover, measuring 17 x 11 ½ cm., 32 p.p. in overall good condition, six pages are devoted to the Order of Play and the remainder to advertisements, the pages varying from fine to slightly soiled, fox marks to the front and rear covers, rusted staples, right hand centre page has a 5 cm. tear and some scores are filled in with pencil for the Third Round. It is held that due to the similarity of the graphics of other official events in the 1920s that this Open Golf Championship Order of Play document is in fact an official Open Championship programme and as such is extremely rare. The 1921 Open was of course the first time that Bobby Jones played in the event and it is recorded that he found St Andrews ‘a puzzle’ and after an unhappy time (152 shots) did not complete the third round. The 1921 Open was also the first time that an American player won the event when Jock Hutchinson beat British amateur golfer, Roger Wethered.
