Robert Tyre "Bobby" Jones Jr. (born March 17, 1902, in Atlanta, Georgia; died December 18, 1971) was arguably the greatest golfer who ever competed on a national and international level. Between 1923 and 1930 he won 13 Major Championships (as they were counted at that time), ranking him only behind Jack Nicklaus and his 20 wins. At age 14, he was the youngest player to ever play in a U.S. Amateur Championship Golf tournament. Jones was the first player to win The Double, both the US Open and the British Open in the same year. He is still the only player ever to have won the Grand Slam, or all four major championships in the same year. Even more remarkably, he did all this as an amateur, something that is unlikely to ever occur again in modern times. ...more on Wikipedia about "Bobby Jones (golfer)"
