A penetrating, moving profile of one of golf's most legendary players Bobby Jones was one of the greatest golfers of all time. In 1930, he became the only person to win the Grand Slam a singular achievement in sports history. It was also a precarious adventure that was littered with near catastrophes on and off the golf course. Using a vast amount of new material, Ron Rapoport gives an unprecedented in-depth portrait of Jones, revealing his life as never before: the anger that accompanied his early failings on the course, the effects of the pressure on his health, and the secret agonies of the illness that ultimately led to his death.
