144 page official program of the International Golf Championship Trophy for Individual Low Medal Score. The Canada Cup, held at the Columbia Country Club (Chevy Chase) in June 1955. Herbert Warren Wind wrote about the Canada Cup, calling it a "sort of Olympic Games of Golf." Teams competed from France, Italy, Egypt, England, Columbia, Chile, Brazil, Belgium, Argentina, Switzerland, Mexico and several other countries, 26 nations in total. The program includes a welcome letter from Richard Nixon as Vice President. The tournament was started with an idealistic notion, golf as a means to spread international goodwill. Peter Alliss played on the England team. Reigning US Open champion Ed Furgol and reigning PGA Champion Chick Harbert comprised the US team, which won the tournament. Articles in the program by Longhurst and PGA President Joe Novak. The Canada Cup started in 1953 and is known as the World Cup today. We specialize in golf books. Bookseller Inventory #
