A green jacket that belonged to Masters Tournament co-founder Bobby Jones will be up for auction next month, and auction officials say they expect it to go for more than $100,000. The jacket will be put up for bid Aug. 4 in conjunction with the Chicago National Sports Show in Rosemont, Ill.
The Master tournament is underway in Augusta. The first group of golfers teed-off around 7:45 Thursday morning. But official play is always preceeded by a time-honored tradition. Thousands of fans lined the opening fairway Thursday as Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus hit ceremonial tee shots to get the tournament under way.
