Steve Jones' 1988 Masters Tournament Contestant Badge #50

Toughest of all credentials to receive (and obtain) is the Masters Tournament contestant badge often found on a hat or shirt, with Steve Jones' 'Player 50' example offered up in this lot. Qualifying for the small field of the Masters is something that most golfers never do. Receiving that invitation from Augusta National Golf Club is an honor, eventually pinning their contestant badge very willingly to their body for the amount of rounds they qualify for. The 1988 Masters Tournament had 90 players in the field. This piece of ephemera is in good condition and presents well, a relic that Masters collectors actively seek out and rarely come up with.

**THE STEVE JONES COLLECTION - 8x PGA Winner & 1996 U.S. Open Champion**

We at The Golf Auction appreciate the opportunity to partner with the highly respected PGA Touring Professional Steve Jones in the auctioning of items from his collection of player badges, clubs, championship medals and mementos assembled over a PGA career which began in 1982 and spanned over the next almost 40 seasons on the regular and Champions Tours. This great run of golf at its highest level saw Jones five times finish in the yearly Top 40 of PGA earnings. His long successful career was highlighted by eight PGA Tour wins claimed at some of the most esteemed of Tour events which included the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, Bob Hope Chrysler Classic, Canadian Open and of course his Major triumph at the 1996 United States Open. This victory which came at the famed, for its difficulty of play, Oakland Hills. This triumph saw Jones post a record setting winning score of 278. This championship winning score remains to this day the the lowest total posted at any of the six U.S. Open's and two Senior U.S. Open's held at the course Ben Hogan would call "The Monster" (with members of the champions at Oakland Hills club besides Jones including Hall of Famers Ralph Guldahl, Hogan, Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus). Following the 1996 golf season, Jones also had the esteemed honor of being named the recipient of the Ben Hogan Award which is given annually by the Golf Writers Association of America to an individual who has continued to be active in golf despite a physical handicap or serious illness.
