Original 1917 photograph of a young fifteen year old golf prodigy named Robert Tyre Jones Jr. on the course and demonstrating his perfect swing for the photographer. This is an extremely early photograph and it pictures one of the oldest images of Jones with a golf club that has ever been offered. Issued by the Central News and stamped on the back and secondary stamps and a full paper caption. An extremely early photograph of Jones with the whole world ahead of him to conquer. Silver gelatin masterpiece presents well with crystal clarity and only some slight handling wear and a crease on the right side from editorial use. Quite simply one of the best photographs of Bobby Jones ever taken. Photo is encapsulated by PSA/DNA as a "Type 3" as well and comes with a full LOA as well.
