Early Bobby Jones in 1919...



Item # 567517

August 20, 1919

THE ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, Georgia GA August 20, 1919  This 20 page newspaper has a six column headline on page 15: "'Bobby' Jones Defeats James S. Manion" with subheads that include: "Atlanta Boy Meets Robert Gardner In Second Round Today" and more.

This tells of a young Bobby Jones playing in the United States Amateur championship at Oakmont Country Club near Pittsburgh PA. This would be the first time he was a major factor in the Amateurs as he would end up with the runner-up trophy.

Great and very rare to have in a Atlanta newspaper, which is his hometown.

Other news of the day. Light browning with little spine wear, otherwise good. Should be handled with care.
