Harry Vardon - Bronze - Marble/Hardwood Base
Harry Vardon learned to play golf as a caddie in Grouville on Jersey, one of Britain’s Channel Islands. He moved to the British mainland in 1890 and won his first British Open title, at Muirfield in 1896 with succeeding victories in 1898, 1899, 1903, 1911 and 1914. He won the U.S. Open in 1900.
Vardon popularized the overlapping Vardon grip, in which the little finger of the lower hand overlaps the index finger of the upper hand. Vardon also introduced method to the golf swing. Vardon applied an upright swing that swept through the ball. Combining the motion with superb timing, Vardon was able to put unheard of spin and therefore movement on the ball, and was so accurate that it is said he played every second round from the divot holes of his first round.
The trophies for low scoring average on the PGA and European Tours were named in Vardon’s memory.
