1946 Canterbury Golf Club
Nineteen forty-five was a memorable year for “Lord Byron.” During those 12 months he earned 18 tournament wins, 11 of them consecutively. But the following year would not be so kind, especially at Canterbury. Poised to win with a one-stroke lead at the final hole, Nelson and the crowd were dismayed to watch his caddy accidentally step on the ball — a one-stroke penalty. This resulted in a three-way tie between Nelson, Lloyd Mangrum and Vic Ghezzi. Mangrum emerged as the winner after a 36-hole playoff.
