Bobby’s Open: Mr Jones and the Golf Shot that Defined a Legend

[Continued from above]
Already a winner of the US Open and US Amateur Championship, Jones has yet to win a Major event on British soil. To do so now would set him on a path of unrivaled achievement and into the history books as the greatest amateur golfer the world has ever known.

As the competition boils down to the penultimate hole on the final day, Bobby must hold his nerve to pull off a miracle recovery shot that will fire his reputation – and that of the golf course – around the world. Bobby’s Open is the inspirational story of a golfing legend and one of the game’s defining contests.

Steven Reid blends social history with sporting biography to portray the most famous sportsman of his time, examining why Jones was so adored and the cruel price he ultimately paid for his genius.
