Reg Whitcombe Signing Autographs

(Original Caption) Ben Hogan (left), non-playing captain of the U.S. Ryder Cup golf team, and his British counterpart, Reg Whitcombe, sign autographs for each other at a reception the American team gave for the British players, September 14. The next day, on the eve of the big international matches, Hogan precipitated one of the most surprising incidents in the Ryder Cup history by protesting to Whitcombe that the faces of the Briton's clubs had been filed to give them better control.
