Bobby Jones

    Majors won:13 (1923, 1926, 1929 & 1930 U.S. Open; 1926, 1927 & 1930 Open Championship; 1924, 1925, 1927, 1928 & 1930 U.S. Amateur; 1930 British Amateur)

PGA Tour victories: 9

Notes: Before the modern era of major championships, the four majors consisted of the U.S. Amateur, U.S. Open, Open Championship and British Amateur. For a seven-year period between 1923-1930, there was no greater champion in golf than Atlanta's Bobby Jones, who also co-founded the Masters. As an amateur, Jones often beat the era's best professional golfers in Walter Hagen and Gene Sarazen. In 1930, Jones won all four majors, effectively creating what is known as the "grand slam." He retired from competitive golf at the tender age of 28. In all, Jones played in 31 majors, winning 13 and placing among the top ten finishers 27 times.
