$500.00

Description

This signed driver was given to David Wetlaufer, a Canadian Friend and Fellow Professional Competitor. Murray Irwin “Moe” Norman (July 10, 1929 – September 4, 2004) was a Canadian professional golfer. His accuracy and ability to hit shot after shot perfectly straight gave him the nickname “Pipeline Moe”. Born in Kitchener, Ontario, Norman developed his golf game from childhood at the Rockway Municipal Course, starting as a caddie in his pre-teen years. He refined his skills competing against talented local players such as Gary Cowan and Gerry Kesselring. He won back-to-back canadian amateur championships in 1955 and 1956. He turned professional in 1957 and played briefly on the PGA Tour, but due to shyness and bullying he encountered from certain pros, in addition to a preference to stay in Canada, he stayed primarily in Ontario. In the 1980’s, Norman played several events on the senior PGA Tour. Norman’s skills as a ball striker are legendary. Sam Snead, himself one of the all-time greatest golfers, described Norman as the greatest striker of the ball in history. In January 2005, Tiger Woods, the biggest golf star of the modern era, told Golf Digest’s Jaime Diaz that only two golfers in history have “Owned their swings,” Moe Norman and Ben Hogan. Woods then stated, “I want to own mine.”
