1927 Portrait photograph of the greatest golfer in the world, Bobby Jones and taken from the iconic old course at St. Andrews. The image captures a proud man, but one who seems to have just let go of the weight of the world. Victory would do that to Bobby Jones as he would get stressed out to the point of almost nervous breakdown, then win and all would be right again. This stress is one of the main reasons he left the game in 1931 at his absolute pinnacle. Stamped on the back by Underwood and Underwood and with a full paper caption as well, this is one of his finest images we have ever handled and it comes out of the Underwood and Underwood archives!
