Augusta National Golf Club and Masters co-founder Bobby Jones was born on St. Patrick’s Day in 1902 in Atlanta. A child prodigy, he broke through to win his first major golf title in 1923 and won at least one for eight consecutive years. His career culminated with the Grand Slam – victories in the British Amateur, British Open, U.S. Open and U.S. Amateur – in a single year. Jones’ 1930 season stands alone as the greatest single year in golf.
