Ever check the bid leaderboard outside the clubhouse? No matter if it's a major PGA Tour event or your club championship, you can see scores posted hole-by-hole, round-by-round when volunteers get out their magic markers and posterboard.
At this year's U.S. Open, they became golf memorabilia. The individual player sheets and round-by-round leaderboards were sold in a fundraising auction for the Metropolitan Golf Association Foundation and the Long Island Caddie Scholarship Fund.
Two of the scorecard strips sold for over $1000. The line chronicling champion Lucas Glover's tournament brought $2510. Tiger Woods' scoresheets sold for $1125, while the numbers for Phil Mickelson brought $550. For those seeking something unique, it was sort of a bargain. Many of the cards for players familiar to golf fans were purchased for $150 or less and some didn't sell at all. The auction sort of flew under the radar, with only CNBC's blog giving it much attention.
