2) 1978 Jackie Gleason Inverrary Classic, Final round - OUR FAVORITE, due to Jack Nicklaus needing to finish with 5 consecutive birdies to nip leader Grier Jones-- and Jack DID it! . . . to win by 1 stroke over Jones.  Greatest pressure finish that we at Classic Sports Video have ever seen in golf, bar none.  Got this DIRECTLY from CBS.  BUT, their archived video ran out after Jack's 16th hole!  So, we see the start of the final round broadcast all the way through 3 of Jack's last 5 holes (#'s 14, 15, 16), but NOT his last two holes . . . it's all CBS had 20 years after the tourney (which is when we acquired it) . . . sorry! - Again, no one else has this, we've never sent it to anyone.  Available now.  Live original CBS call with original commercials. - $199.00


3) 1973 US Open final round, won by Johnny Miller with record 63 on last day, he blazed past A LOT of players - complete ESPN Classic version, approx. 2 hours with (1990s) commercials - $95.00

4) 1986 Masters, COMPLETE Final Round, CBS broadcast (excellent quality) - Nicklaus wins at age 46!  Beats terrific field with final-round 65 (incl. 30 on the back nine), coming from behind. - $150.00 (on 3 DVDs) -- Or, get the COMPLETE final (4th) round PLUS the COMPLETE round 3, PLUS round 2 highlights shown before the start of round 3 (the round 2 highlights were joined in progress), for $185.00!  All are the original CBS broadcast.

6) Official US Open Highlights films by the USGA, all narrated and great - 1973, 1974, 1975, 1976, 1977 - 30 minutes each to 60 mins each (as we recall) - $59.00 each - These are the Official VHS tapes, NOT off of TV, are UN-edited and contain no commercials or commercial cuts.

7) Official Highlights of the 1977 British Open, via ESPN Classic - amazing duel when Tom Watson and Jack Nicklaus LAP the field, great drama through last day on #18 when Nicklaus explodes his shot out of shrubs after errant drive to land his 2nd shot on front edge of green, then sinks long birdie putt to force Watson to sink his short birdie putt for what had seemed like a sure win for Watson a few minutes earlier.  Greatest-ever British Open duel and finish. - $60.00

8) Official Highlights film of the 1975 Masters, via ESPN Classic - Famous, greatest Masters where veteran Jack Nicklaus holds off prime Tom Weiskopf AND prime Johnny Miller (the latter two playing together). Jack makes humongous-long putt on 16th in last round to seal victory.  About 60mwith 1990s commercials. - $60.00

9) Official Highlights video (it's crystal-clear video, not film) of the 1999 British Open, via ESPN Classic - Frenchman Jean Van de Velde's horrifying collapse on the 72nd hole, after leading the tournament basically wire-to-wire for 71 holes--all four days.  He had a three-stroke lead at the 72nd tee and needed only a 6 on the par-4 final hole to win outright--a double-bogie would win!  Instead, he made 7, and Paul Lawrie won in a 3-way playoff over Van de Velde and Justin Leonard.  Sad,  sad, sad, maybe also poetic.  Van de Velde kept his dignity even as he absolutely collapsed under nerves of jelly, he was a class act.  Even after knocking it in the water and having to go in barefoot after it.  That 18th hole took him over 20 minutes to play. 
- We recall that this broadcast is either 30m or 60m with ESPN Classic commercials - $49.00

10) "The Back Nine at Cherry Hills: Legends of the 1960 US Open" - Fantastic, well-produced documentary of the final round of the 1960 US Open, in which any number of men might have won and the lead constantly changed hands.  Yet, it was a 20-year-old amateur, Jack Nicklaus, playing in the same pairing with an older-but-still-capable-of-winning pro legend, Ben Hogan, dueling (in another group) the game's reigning, charismatic star at the time, Arnold Palmer, in a meeting of three generations of golfing Gods.  Never before, never since, has there been a US Open where the three best of three different eras were all in the hunt and going head-to-head to win.  Palmer executed one of his greatest closing-day streaks to notch the victory.  With lots of great biographical background on EACH of the three greats, from their respective childhoods, to set up this last round at Cherry Hills in 1960.  With HIGH Drama over the entire last 18 holes. Recorded this Hi-Definition (HD) broadcast directly to DVD. Looks perfect! - 60 minutes - $69.00

Please note: We have attempted to acquire more classic 1970s (and some other 1950s through 2000s) golf footage from TV network sources, but, presently, our golf collection is only "narrow and deep" with the above classics, plus those (not listed above) that are in storage.  We'd like to get the 1977 British Open final round (complete) from ABC, also the 1994 AT&T (formerly the Bing Crosby pro-am tournament, where an older Johnny Miller wins).  And a few more.  We'll see!  

Any new acquisitions will be reflected on this web site immediately.
