Most notably among these was Bobby Jones, the legendary amateur from Atlanta, Georgia. In 1930, Bobby Jones captured golfs 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. Golfs 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 will accompany the photographs, taken by legendary golf photographer George Pietzcker. The profiles will provide an overview of each players career, their contribution to the games 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, and provide an overview on the life, career and contributions of George Pietzcker. A concluding essay will detail Jones rich history and contribution to the game of golf. Golfs Golden Age will be produced with the full cooperation and endorsement of the USGA including images and artifacts from their vast archives.
