1931 or early 1932 photograph of a golf match between superstars Bobby Jones and Francis Ouimet who took on Billie Burke and George Von Elm. While money would have been on the first group, who were much better players, it looks like the second group mopped the floor with them. Issued by Underwood and Underwood and with a full paper caption on the back. The image shows Bobby Jones putting and as such it is one of his last images of him playing between his retirement after 1930 and his reinvention at Augusta National in 1934!
