Bobby Jones, a golf prodigy is considered to be the best Amateur golfer ever. Achieving fame at an early age, Jones ended his Amateur Tournament play at the early age of 28 and at the pinnacle of his short seven year winning streak in 1930 by completing the Grand Slam of Golf, winning the four majors of the day inside of the same year, the British Open, British Amateur, the U.S. Open and U.S. Amateur, a record in golf that still stands. Jones won 13 of the 21 National Championships he entered between 1923 and 1930, an amazing 62% win record. Jones went on to co-found the Augusta National Golf Club, home of the Masters Tournament and filmed instructional movies in Hollywood after his retirement from tournament golf.
