Quimet medal 1 (1).jpeg
1925 18K Medal won by Francis Ouimet & R.W. Brown at The Country Club.

Francis Quimet won the 1913 U.S. Open in what is considered the greatest upset in golfing history. Barely 20 years old he defeated the legendary British champion of that era, Harry Vardon, winner of five British Opens to that point and Ted Ray in an 18-hole playoff. 

Quimet never turned professional his entire career as he wished to remain an amateur in order to work in the world of business. However he maintained an active amateur golfing competition schedule well into his fifties. This medal Francis won at the age of thirty-two with his playing partner, R.W. Brown. The front of the medal displays the iconic logo of The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts.

These special pieces brilliantly combine two of my biggest passions; golf and horseracing. Pictured here are two sterling silver "Mint Julep Cups" that were presented to Billy Casper for winning the First Annual Kentucky Derby Open. This golf tournament was played for 3 years (1957-1959) with Billy Casper "nosing out" Peter Thompson by one stroke to capture the inaugural event. 

These sterling treasures represent official Kentucky Derby mint julep cups, each with an applied horseshoe from Brown, Waterhouse and Kaiser of Louisville, KY.
