Babe Ruth officially took up the game of golf in 1915, but this represents the earliest photo we can find through our experience and research that actually shows him with clubs and on the course. Dated in the middle of the 1920 season (his first with the Yankees) the image was issued by the Keystone View company and is stamped on the back with a paper caption as well.
