Bobby Jones photo album
His victory in the first Georgia Amateur Championship gave him access to the US Amateur qualifiers, which he passed without difficulty on Monday, September 4, 1916. 5,000 spectators followed his game.
Bobby stays with his friend Perry Adlair at the Bellevue-Stratford Hotel in Philadelphia. The two boys take the train every day to the Merion Cricket Club course.
In the blistering heat, Bobby defeats the dreaded Eban M. Byers and Frank Dyer. The New York Times and Golfers Magazine are abuzz with " this kid with blue-grey eyes ". In the third round, their darling was defeated by the defending champion, Robert Gardner.
Robert Tyres Jones IV, grandson of the great champion and founder of Augusta National Golf Club, wrote: " This is one of the most remarkable books ever written about my grandfather. Our family is very touched by the quality of this book.".
The album contains previously unpublished photographs and anecdotes. It is prefaced by Robert Tyres Jones IV, the late Peter Alliss, and the great champion Gary Player.
