OPEN CHAMPIONSHIP BELT
The belt was awarded to the British Open champion, beginning in 1860. Because Young Tom Morris won the belt three times in a row, from 1868 through 1870, the belt was given to him permanently, and the 1871 Open Championship was canceled. The belt is on display at the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews.
Estimated value: $400,000 to $600,000
BOBBY JONES'S 13 MAJOR CHAMPIONSHIP GOLD MEDALS
The first time I saw Jones's 13 gold medals (including those for his 1930 Grand Slam, bottom) displayed in a small glass case at the USGA Museum, I had what can only be described as an unexpected but undeniable spiritual experience.
Estimated value: $1 million to $1.5 million
JONES'S CALAMITY JANE PUTTER
The most famous golf club in the world is the putter Jones used through the bulk of his competitive career. It is also on display at the USGA Museum.
Estimated value: $750,000 to $1 million
