Rare and Interesting 1961 Ryder Cup Official PGA Dinner menu signed by Dai Rees Playing Captain – held after the final day singles at Hotel Majestic on Saturday 14th October and signed on the back cover “Autograph team Page” by Dai Rees who won 3 out of 4 matches (highest points scorer) played at Royal Lytham with US winning 14.5 to 9.5 – usual vertical pocket fold - also the first appearance in US team by Arnold Palmer. Note In April 1960 the British PGA made a formal proposal. The suggestion was that, for 1961, matches would be reduced to 18 holes and that there would be two sets of matches each day; two sets of foursomes on the first day and two sets of singles on the second. The pairings for the foursomes and the order of play in the foursomes and singles could be changed for the second set of matches. They also proposed that, for 1963, the match should be extended to three days with two set of four-ball matches on the extra day. By August 1960 the US PGA had agreed to the proposal as it related to the 1961 event and  the change being formalised later that year which has continued today in the same format
