1926 Portrait photograph of the last American golfer standing at the British Amateur after the defeat of Bobby Jones. The man was Jess Sweetser and he would indeed win the event! Issued by the Keystone View Company and also stamped by the Central Press with the date, this is a cool image of one of the most underrated golfers of the era. The photo has creasing, wear, and pinholes from editorial use, but it presents pretty well.
