Bobby Jones During the US Amateur Championships at Pebble Beach in 1929
Between 1923 and 1930, Bobby Jones dominated the game of golf, winning 13 of 21 major championships he entered. In 1926, Jones became the only amateur to win both the U.S. and British Open championships in the same year, receiving a ticker tape parade down Broadway in New York City. In 1930, Jones accomplished the unthinkable by winning the U.S. and British Open and Amateur Championships all in the same year, later dubbed the Grand Slam. Just a month later, he shocked the world by retiring from golf at the age of 28. The Associated Press would later call Jones' Grand Slam accomplishment the all-time achievement in sports history. Perhaps Bobby Jones' greatest legacy to the game of golf was his design of Augusta National in 1933, home to the Masters every April.
