    Bobby Jones a Golf Legend

    Golf is a challenging sport enjoyed by many people around the world. One of the greatest golfers in the world was Bobby Jones. In the book my favorite quote is 'The bigger they are the harder they fall.' I chose this quote because size dosen't matter when you are playing golf. A larger person will not always be the better golfer. A champion golfer can lose on any given day to a less skilled golfer. As a young boy Bobby was not healthy. He suffered from severe digestive problems until he was five and couldn't eat soild food. At the age of nine he won the Junior Championship at the Atlanta Athletic Club. In 1921 he played in his first British Amateur tournament in England. He played in the first British Open at St. Andrews. In 1926 he was defeated in 72-hole match in Flordia by Walter Hagen. My personal opinion is that anyone who likes to play golf should definitely read this book. I liked this book because as a child Bobby Jones was not healthy and as he grew up he over came his physical problems. He became a competitive golfer and had a successful golfing career. Bobby won some major championships including the U.S. Amateur in 1924, the U.S. Open in 1926 and the British Open in 1926 and 1927. He won many more titles and retired from golf in 1930.
