John Byron Nelson Jr. (1912-2006) Signed Photo, "To Randall Sutherland, Byron Nelson", 8 x 10, b/w, photographer Kay Tiller action shot of him driving the ball, by the American professional golfer between 1935 and 1946, widely considered one of the greatest golfers of all time. Although he won many tournaments in the course of his relatively brief career, he is mostly remembered today for having won 11 consecutive tournaments and 18 total tournaments in 1945 and was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1974. Nelson won his first major title at The Masters in 1937, two shots ahead of runner-up Ralph Guldahl. During this tournament he shot a first-round 66, which was the lowest first round score at the Masters until 1976, when Raymond Floyd had 65 en route to his victory. Nelson won four more majors, the U.S. Open in 1939, the PGA Championship in 1940 and 1945, and a second Masters in 1942. Some age toning at top edge and a small crease at top and at bottom right edge, otherwise in fine condition.
