The Masters didn’t come along until after he retired (because he started it) and he couldn’t play in the PGA because he was an amateur.
By age 30, when he retired, he had won 4 US Opens and 3 British Opens. That is exactly how many Jack Nicklaus won in his entire career. Tiger Woods is 33 and has won one fewer US Open and the same number of British Opens.
Jones won 7 majors going up against the likes of Gene Sarazen (7 majors) and Walter Hagen who won 11 majors without the benefit of aving the Masters to play in.
None of Tiger’s contemporaries have more than 3 majors under their belt.
Lastly, from 1922 to 1930, Bobby Jones play in 9 US Opens and finished first or second in 8 of them.
It is not my position that he is better than Jack or Tiger, but I feel he needs to be in the discussion more often than he is.
