Robert “Bobby” Tyre Jones Jr. was an American amateur golfer who was one of the most influential figures in the history of the sport; he was also a lawyer by profession. Jones founded and helped design the Augusta National Golf Club, and co-founded the Masters Tournament. The innovations that he introduced at the Masters have been copied by virtually every professional golf tournament in the world.
"Golf is the closest game to the game we call life. You get bad breaks from good shots; you get good breaks from bad shots - but you have to play the ball where it lies."
Jones is the only player ever to have won the (pre-Masters) Grand Slam, or all four major championships, in the same calendar year (1930). Jones' path to the 1930 Grand Slam title was:
The Amateur Championship, Old Course at St Andrews, Scotland
The Open Championship, Royal Liverpool Golf Club, Hoylake, England
U.S. Open, Interlachen Country Club, Minnesota
U.S. Amateur, Merion Golf Club, Pennsylvania
