Georgia Greats

The Long Shadow of Bobby Jones

One of the greatest golfers of all time, Bobby Jones left a legacy much greater than the sport which gave him fame. The co-founder of Augusta National Golf Club is remembered by those who knew him as one of the most decent, humble men they ever knew. Winning the Grand Slam in 1930, he captured the heart of a nation struggling with the Great Depression.
