Bobby Jones Signed 9/20/1961 Letter to R&A Captain Thomas Fothringham


Robert 'Bobby' T Jones Jr, of course, was one of the greatest golfers ever to set foot upon the links and in 1930 he accomplished one of the most amazing feats in sports history by winning all four "majors" in one season (the U.S. Open, U.S. Amateur, British Open and British Amateur). While his accomplishments, which include thirteen "major" championships over the course of seven years (1923-30), speak for themselves, his legendary status is due equally to the unusual circumstances of his career. Jones played golf more for the love of the sport rather than the accolades or money. In fact, he often only played a few months out of the year. Even more shocking was his decision to retire at the age of 28, while he was still at the peak of his career. Following his retirement he produced instructional videos and helped found both the Augusta National and the prestigious Masters Tournament.

"I must tell you that I am most grateful for your letter. I am sending it along to my son who I know will be equally pleased. With all good wishes, Most cordially, Robert T. Jones, Jr." From the great Bobby Jones to the R&A Captain Thomas Fothringham, this meaningful letter was signed with his full name in blue pen. James Spence Authentication (JSA) has reviewed this signature and their auction letter of authenticity comes with this lot.
