Overview
"The Bobby Jones Story: The Authorized Biography" by O.B. Keeler is the most unprecedented publication about golf s first international icon. This classic edition is back with a fresh look 50 years after its original printing to celebrate the centennial birthday of golf's greatest legend. No other writer had the access and inside knowledge of Jones life and game as Jones grew up down the road from Keeler, who was already entrenched as a reporter in Atlanta. Once he saw what Jones could do for the sport in his first shocking appearance in the U.S. Amateur tournament in 1916, Keeler knew this was a golfer destined to leave his mark on the sport. Over the next two decades, Keeler traveled more than 120,000 miles to cover Jones in 27 Majors. The two became more than working associates, they were close friends. When Jones went through an early dry spell of losing 10 straight major championships and questioned if he would ever win a Major, Keeler was there to assure the legend that nobody could beat him if he would only realize it. Keeler proved to be prophetic. At one point Jones won 13 of 21 Major championships including the famous 1930 season when he captured the Impregnable Quadrilateral, better known today as The Grand Slam. One month later, at the age of 28, Jones announced his retirement. Jones continued to steer the future of the sport as a golf course designer, golf club designer, teacher, and writer. But he will never be forgotten as the first world star in golf."
