The 1999 Ryder Cup is, for Americans, one of the most famous golf tournaments in history. The '99 Ryder Cup was also one of the last public appearances for Payne Stewart, who died just 29 days later. Offered here is surely one of the only complete US Team-signed flags from the 1999 Ryder Cup that exists - and it comes from the personal collection of Phil Mickelson.

The signatures on this flag were likely obtained prior to the 1999 Ryder Cup. Needless to say, there are only a handful of 1999 Ryder Cup flags in existence that are signed by the entire team including Payne Stewart.

This flag was a gift from Phil Mickelson to an executive at Hugo Boss (Phil's longtime clothing sponsor) as a Christmas gift in 1999. Framed to 257" x 21" with a nice plaque noting that it is a gift from Amy and Phil Mickelson.
