Bobby Jones 1930 US Amateur 8x10 Wire Photo with Johnston, Sweetser, & Marston


Taken at Merion Golf Club was this 8x10 wire photo from Bobby Jones' final leg of the grand slam, The US Amateur. Sportswriter for the New York Sun George Trevor would phrase Jones' four Major triumphs in 1930 as such, "stormed the impregnable quadrilateral of golf." Each competitor posed beside him had won a US Amateur prior, those being Jimmy Johnston (1929), Jess Sweetser (1922) and Max Marston (1923). 1930 also represented Bobby Jones' record 5th US Amateur title, surpassing Jerome Travers' four wins between 1907 and 1913. Jones retired from competitive golf shortly there after, focusing much of his time and energy on the construction of a golf club in Augusta, GA named Augusta National Golf Club. 'International News Photos' out of neighboring state New York stamped this photo on the reverse.
