“I have never heard of anyone playing 18 holes in fewer scores than the years of his age”
Description  

TLS signed “Robt T. Jones, Jr.,” one page, 8.5 x 11, The American Golf Institute letterhead, November 29, 1939. Letter to elderly golfer Harry T. Black of Los Angeles. In part: “It is very difficulty for me to remember the precise details of the treatment which cured my lumbago…These treatments were accomplished by oiling up my back and then rubbing over a glass tubing which did quite a lot of buzzing and crackling with electric charge…I certainly congratulate you on your scores of 78 and 79. Like your professional, I have never heard of anyone playing 18 holes in fewer scores than the years of his age. It is certainly a most remarkable performance. I hope as your years increase your score will continue to come down.” In fine condition, with light scattered creases. The Los Angeles Times reported that Black, at the age of 82, turned in scores of 78 and 79 on the Clover Field Golf Course in Santa Monica. Fabulous golf content from one of the sport’s great legends. Pre-certified Steve Grad/PSA/DNA.
