Jack died on March 21, 2014 at the age of 92 in Fort Smith, Arkansas. I miss him. We talked a lot when I was working on THE LONGEST SHOT. I have great memories.
I still occasionally talk to his wife, Carmen, who told me that Jack was recently inducted into the Arkansas Sports Hall of Fame. Good for him.
But back to the auction.
(In a strange twist, Jack was the first player to win with Ben Hogan clubs, beating the legend himself, who happened to be the only other man in the field playing Hogan clubs.)

There are other Fleck auction items of interest, including his 1962 Masters Low Score Crystal Vass Trophy (at left). Jack shot the lowest final-round score that year, a 69, and finished 11th.
There are many more items, some of which are affordable for almost anyone.
