Here is a very fascinating film some 48 years old! It is film of the 12th Annual Bing Crosby $10,000 Invitational National Pro-Amateur Tournament, Pebble Beach, California, held January 9-11, 1953. A nice day for golf. Bob Hope, Bing Crosby, eventual winner Lloyd Mangrum, and other notables appear. it was filmed by William Foley (1919-2003) and edited by William Foley II. The song used is Bing Crosby's "Straight Down The Middle"...
