Few people could boast even a handful of Bobby Jones’ extensive, varied accomplishments, both on and off the green.
Of course, boasting was probably the last thing you’d find Bobby Jones doing. Perhaps more than his great feats, the qualities that left an unforgettable impression on those who knew him were his loyalty, his compassion, and his modesty.
The first chapter: friendship
Jones’ uniqueness was one reason the Bobby Jones Advisory Committee chose to honor him in a nontraditional way. Rather than construct a static building or monument, they created an exchange program that would live in perpetuity and tell the story of his intellectual strengths, his athletic achievements, and his special bond with the people of St Andrews.
