The sport's section (page 24) has a two column heading: "Jones Adds Southwestern Golf Title to His Long String" with subhead. (see) First report coverage on Bobby Jones winning the 1930 Southeastern Open at Forest Hills Gold Club in Augusta, Georgia.
Complete with 32 pages, light toning and a little wear at the margins, generally nice.

wikipedia notes: Bobby Jones began his famous 1930 Grand Slam of Golf in 1930 with a win in the Southeastern Open, which was played with two rounds on the Augusta Country Club and two at Forest Hills. He fired a third-round 69 and final-round 71 to clinch his first major of the year by 13 strokes over Horton Jones, and subsequently went on to have a banner year on tour by sweeping the four majors in the same calendar year.
