Bobby Jones

Bobby Jones

Jones first became a known quantity on the national stage when he made the quarterfinals of the U.S. Amateur at age 14 in 1916. He won the first of three Southern Amateurs a year later and began representing the U.S. in international competitions (before the creation of the Ryder Cup) by the age of 17. Jones, a lawyer by trade, never turned professional and retired at the young age of 28. Yet, he is widely considered one of the greatest golfers of all-time.
