A well known Atlanta Icon - Bobby Jones

In honor of the Masters Tournament presently being play in Augusta, Georgia, I thought I would do a feature blog on one of the most celebrated amateur golfers that has ever lived; Bobby Jones. 

Bobby Jones was one of the founders and helped design the Augusta National Golf Club.  Mr. Jones was also the co-founder of the Masters Tournament.  He was the most successful amateur golf player on both the national and international level of golf. 

Probably not as well known is his very impressive educational background.  He graduated from Georgia Tech with a degree in Engineering, went to Harvard University with a degree in English Literature, and then went to one of the best law schools in the country; Emory Law here in Atlanta.  He took the Georgia bar after just three semesters at Emory Law School.

The things that makes him a stand out to me are his sportsmanship and ethics to the game of golf and life.  When Bobby Jones was playing in the 1925 U.S. Open, he had a ball move that no one else saw.  He gave himself a self-imposed one stroke penalty.  Even though the officials argued with him on this, he refused to have this penalty removed.  This one stroke penalty cost him the win.
