Bobby Jones golfing

Known as the greatest amateur golfer ever, Bobby Jones was born in Atlanta in 1902. Bobby was named a golf prodigy after entering his first national competition at 14, but his career didn’t truly take off until seven years later when he won the U.S. Open.

Bobby’s achievements included everything from a U.S. Open record to becoming the only man to complete a “Grand Slam” in one season, yet the star was also known for his humility and dedication to his family and law practice.

One of Bobby’s greatest achievements was during retirement – co-founding the Masters Tournament.
