I Remember Bobby Jones by Mike Towle

Book Description

Long before there were Tiger Woods, television, and tournaments with million-dollar purses, Bobby Jones was the most recognised and revered golfer in the world. Memories of Jones continue to burn brightly, as does his indomitable legacy and influence. Nearly thirty years after his death, Jones remains president-in-perpetuity of the Augusta National Golf Club, which he co-founded and which remains the host venue of the annual Masters Golf Tournament. Much like the careers forged by Ben Hogan, Jack Nicklaus, and Arnold Palmer, Jones's record stands as a landmark in golf history. By the time he retired from competitive golf in 1930 at the age of twenty-eight, Jones had won four U.S. Opens, three British Opens, and five U.S. Amateur titles - all without ever earning a penny for any of his triumphs. Jones's status as the greatest amateur golfer, if not the greatest golfer ever, was clinched in 1930 when he won each of those three tournaments as well as the coveted British Amateur. That made him the only golfer ever to win all four Grand Slam events in one calendar year. In I Remember Bobby Jones, the indomitable golfer and successful businessman is remembered - in their own words - by dozens of fellow golfers, journalists, golf industry leaders, friends, relatives, and followers of the game. The portrait is of a man and champion who embodied sportsmanship and brought the words classic and golf together in one phrase.
