Golf Doorstop Bronze Sculpture Golf Bags Clubs Joe Phillips

This bronze scuplture (or brass with bronzed patina) features 2 golf bags with clubs, one large pro bag with handle, the other smaller with no handle, both sitting on a base shaped like a green. 8.75" high. Base is 5" x 4.25". It's very heavy. Felted base. The 2 bags may have been connected at one time at a tiny place where the clubs come together and almost touch. There's a small straight line gap there. It isn't visually distracting but I'm mentioning to be thorough.

We purchased it from the estate of Joe Phillips, popular Wilson Sporting Goods figure for more than 50 years, who died at the age of 77, on March 20th, 2006. The family used it as a doorstop. On-line information about him says: "As vice-president of golf promotions, Phillips' responsibilities included negotiating and signing golf professionals on both the PGA and LPGA tours as well as researching and developing new club designs, including Wilson's JP wedge series. The list of touring professionals Phillips worked with reads like a virtual who's who of golf, including Gene Sarazen, Sam Snead, Byron Nelson and Patty Berg. A native of Philadelphia and an accomplished saxophonist, Phillips attended Granoff School of Music. He is a past president of Golf Manufacturers and Distributors Association, and former chairman of the National Golf Foundation. In 1984 Wilson Sporting Goods established the Joe Phillips Cup in his honor, with Sarazen the first recipient." Most of his golf related items were donated to the PGA.
