Very Rare Hand Signed 1947 USA Ryder Cup Team. USA-11, GB & I- 1. Played at Portland Golf Club. Playing Captain, Ben Hogan. Also signed by Walter Hagen. Size 8" x 10".

The 7th Ryder Cup Matches were held November 1–2, 1947 at Portland Golf Club in Portland, Oregon, marking a resumption of the competition after a full decade. World War II forced cancellations from 1939 to 1945; the last competition was in 1937. The United States overwhelmed the British team, 11–1. From 1947 to 1967, it was the worst defeat a Great Britain team suffered at the hands of the U.S., and to date it remains the closest that a side has come to not winning any matches. The Britons, led by Henry Cotton, knew that they had no real chance of winning and proved themselves correct on the first day by losing every foursomes match. The American team took a 4–0 lead into the second day, and continued to dominate by winning all but one singles match. The only British victory in the competition came when San King beat Herman Keiser 4 & 3 to save them from leaving Portland without winning any points.
