7 1955 newspapers MASTERS GOLF TOURNAMENT won by a dentist DR CARRY MIDDLECOFF - inv # BV-4E-123 SEE PHOTO----- Seven (7) COMPLETE, ORIGINAL consecutively dated NEWSPAPERs, the Mobile Register (Alabama) dated April 5-11, 1955. This lot of 7 newspapers contain coverage of the entire 1955 Masters Golf Tournament, which was won by Dr Cary Middlecoff (a dentist). This was also the first Masters Golf Tournament to be played in by ARNOLD PALMER (he finished tied for 10th place in it). The 1955 Masters Tournament was the 19th Masters Tournament, held April 7–10 at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia. It was the last one before CBS began televising the tournament the following year. Cary Middlecoff shot a 65 in the second round, including a then-record 31 on the first nine, to win his only Masters, seven strokes ahead of runner-up Ben Hogan, and the second of his three major championships. Emmett Cary Middlecoff (January 6, 1921 – September 1, 1998) was an American professional golfer on the PGA Tour from 1947 to 1961. His 40 Tour wins place him tenth all-time, and he won three major championships. Middlecoff graduated as a dentist from the Unversity of Tennessee Dental School, but gave up his practice at age 26 to become a full-time Tour golfer. After a third round at even-par 72, Middlecoff entered the final round with a four shot lead over Hogan, the champion in 1951 and 1953. The victory margin of seven strokes was a tournament record for ten years, until Jack Nicklaus won by nine strokes over Arnold Palmer and Gary Player in 1965, later increased to twelve in 1997 by Tiger Woods. The previous record was five strokes, set in 1948 by Claude Harmon and tied by Hogan in 1953. The runner-up finish was Hogan's fourth at the Masters. Arnold Palmer, a professional for less than a year, finished tied for tenth in his first Masters. Very good condition.
