Lyon, George Seymour
George Seymour Lyon Signed Portrait.
1931. Rare half-tone portrait of Canadian golf legend George Lyon. Signed by Lyon, "Geo. S. Lyon." Period frame. The entire piece measures 8.25 inches by 5.75 inches. In very good condition. Although he only began playing golf at the age of 38 due to lack of available golf courses in most areas of Canada before that date, George Seymour Lyon won the gold medal in golf in the 1904 Summer Olympics in St. Louis, Missouri, at age 46, only eight years after beginning the sport. He won the Canadian Amateur Championship a record eight times between 1898 and 1914, the last time in his 56th year. He was also runner-up in that event on two further occasions. He won the Canadian Seniors' Golf Association Championship ten times between 1918 and 1930, the final time in his 72nd year; these events were staged before the inauguration of the Canadian Senior Golf Championship by Golf Canada.
