GOLF QUOTES OF THE WEEK

What a display of guts, determination and skill. What an incredible way to come back and win. Congrats Jordan Spieth.

- WORLD GOLF HALL OF FAME MEMBER JACK NICKLAUS

2017 Open Champion Jordan Spieth IS the youngest American Champion in Open history, breaking the record held by Bobby Jones since 1926, the year Bobby Jones Golf Club opened.

a year ago, SpIEth led The Masters by FIVE strokes with nine HOLES to play before one of the greatest collapses in Major championship history, including hitting two balls into the water for a quadruple-bogey at the 155-YARD, Par 3 12th hole, "GOLDEN BELL".

19-year-old BOBBY Jones played his first Open Championship at St Andrews, Scotland in 1921, where he was low amateur after 36 holes but walked off the course IN THE 3RD ROUND after taking four shots from a sand trap on the 148-YARD, Par 3 11th, "HIGH" HOLE.

"IT WAS the most inglorious failure of my golfing life”. - BOBBY JONES

1921 Champion Jock Hutchison wENT ON TO become associate golf professional at Donald Ross designed Bobby Jones Golf Club in Sarasota. 

BOBBY Jones would not return to The Open Championship until 1926, when he won BY 1 STROKE OVER Runner-up Joe TURNESA, WHO WENT ON TO become resident teaching golf professional at Donald Ross designed Sara Bay Country Club in Sarasota.

Bobby Jones would win The Open Championship IN each of his next attempts, in 1927, 1928 and 1930, by a combined 10 strokes.
