This is an early autographed letter of the great Harry Vardon when he was only 26 years old. This entirely handwritten letter is dated 1896 - the same year the young Vardon won a Major Championship for the very first time, the 1896 Open. This letter on on Scarborough Golf Club (aka Ganton Golf Club) from the first year that young Vardon was the head professional. This is far and away the earliest Harry Vardon autographed letter than we have ever offered. It has been framed to an overall size of 16 1/2" x 15".
