The late 1920's and early 1930's were the Golden Age of American golf, when many of the greatest amateurs and professionals to play the game were at the peak of their careers. Most notably, there was Bobby Jones, the legendary amateur from Atlanta, Georgia. In 1930, Bobby Jones captured golf's greatest achievement, the Grand Slam, by winning the U.S. Amateur, British Amateur, U.S. Open and British Open Championships in a single season, an unprecedented and unmatched feat in the history of the game. Golf's Golden Age celebrates Bobby Jones and 61 of the premier players he competed against, including Chick Evans, Walter Hagen, Tommy Armour, Walter Travis and Gene Sarazen, in his quest to win the Grand Slam through a series of never before seen vintage photographs from Jones' private collection. A biographic sketch of each golfer accompanies the photographs, taken by legendary golf photographer George Pietzcker. The profiles will provide an overview of each player's career, their contribution to the game's history and a contemporary quote (preferably from Jones) drawn from the rich archives of the USGA library. Introductory essays will set the tone for the book discussing the Golden Era of American Golf and the significance of the Grand Slam, as well as providing an overview on the life, career and contributions of George Pletzcker. A concluding essay will detail Jones' rich history and contribution to the game of golf.
