Early Bobby Jones in 1919......
Item # 568421
August 24, 1919
THE ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, Atlanta, Georgia, August 24, 1919 This 50+ page newspaper has one column headlines on the front page that include: "JONES DEFEATED IN GAME BATTLE FOR GOLF CROWN" "Davidson Herron, of Pittsburgh, Wins Amateur Championship..."Bobby's Play Hurt By Unruly Gallery" and more.
Much more on the front page of the sport's section with headlines and nice photo. (see)
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.
Other news of the day. Light browning with little spine wear, otherwise good. Should be handled with care.
