Grovetown woman finds rare Masters Tournament program | Columbia County News-Times

Lexie Hollingsworth had no interest in golf – at least, not until earlier this month.

That’s when the Grovetown woman unearthed a rare piece of Masters Tournament history while helping a friend go through boxes of old magazines and newspaper clippings. Hollingsworth found a 1935 program for the Au­gusta National Invitation Tour­na­ment. It contains information on the field, course and members of the private club. Only a few copies of the 40-page program are believed to exist.

Augusta National Golf Club produced programs for its inaugural event in 1934 and for the second year. There is no record of other programs being produced until 1990, when the club launched the Masters Journal as its preview magazine.

The program has a dark-red cover and features an early version of the Augusta National logo, with the U.S. outline and a flagstick pinpointing Augusta.
