About the Event

When Robert “Bobby” Tyre Jones Jr. won the four major golf tournaments (the British Amateur, the British Open, the U.S. Open, and the U.S. Amateur) all in the same year (1930), he became a worldwide hero and the first to achieve golfing’s “Grand Slam.” Dr. Catherine M. Lewis leads us “down the fairway” of Bobby Jones’s life and golfing career, from his days as a competitive golfer, through his early retirement in 1930 at age 28, to his phenomenally popular instructional books and newspaper columns and his involvement in club and course design (such as the most revered American course, Augusta National Golf Club). In 1928, Bob Jones struck the very first ball christening the Highlands Country Club gold course. Jones’s charisma, talent, and foresight shine through, and it’s easy to see why he is considered the greatest of them all.
