This is an extraordinary snapshot photograph of Bobby Jones teeing off on the 1st hole at the Old Course at St Andrews during the 1930 British Amateur. This was the 1st leg of Bobby Jones' Grand Slam. Rather than a large press photograph produced in larger quantities, this is a smaller snapshot photograph with a direct side view of Bobby Jones' tee shot at the Home of Golf. Though we have no way of knowing, we can presume that a snapshot like this is unique, the only such copy in existence. 

Authenticated and encapsulated as Type 1 by PSA. 3 1/4" x 5 1/2".
