Jones, (Robert Tyre, Jr.) Bobby

(1902–71) golfer; born in Atlanta, Ga. One of golf's greats during the 1920s "golden age" of sports, he became the only player ever to win a recognized Grand Slam in golf (four major championships in a single year) when he won the U.S. and British Opens, and the U.S. and British Amateurs in 1930. From 1922 to 1930—while earning his B.A. from Georgia School (now Institute) of Technology, another B.A. from Harvard, and his law degree from Emory—he won the U.S. Open four times, the U.S. Amateurs five times, and the British Open three times. An amateur throughout his career, he retired from golf in 1930 to practice law. He designed the course at the Augusta (Ga.) National Golf Club where he helped found the Masters tournament (1934). After a spinal injury in 1948 he was confined to a wheel chair but he continued with his business interests.
