Scholarship of Discovery
Bobby Jones lived an admirable, extraordinary life, even for a famous athlete. Not surprisingly, golf fans have tended to "marbleize" him. Such efforts distort the record and unintentionally dehumanize the hero. The purpose of this piece is to highlight the historical record and put Jones into proper cultural and historical context.
