RYDER CUP 1927 - 2000


1942

Official Letter sent by the PGA to Lloyd Mangrum informing him he had

 been  selected for the 1942 United States Team.

During the War Years the Americans continued to select a Ryder Cup

 Team  which played Exhibition matches to raise money for Charity.

The 1942 Ryder Cup team defeated the Walter Hagen Challengers in a

 charity match held at Oakland Hills Country Club. The event raised

 $25,000 for the  Red Cross.
