A Look Into the Poll Question: Bobby Jones

The last answer in the poll question 'If You Could Hit It Like One Historic Golfer In Their Prime With Modern Equipment, Who Would It Be?' is Bobby Jones.

Bobby Jones was a 4 time Major Championship winner and the most popular amateur golfer of all time.

Much really isn't known about his ballstriking in regards to how precisely he stacked up against his peers as most people prefer to discuss what he has done for the game as an Amateur, the Masters and sportsmanship. However, I think it was safe to say that Jones was a great ballstriker for his time if not the very best.

Jones had a very inside golf swing, probably designed for the hickory shafted golf clubs

It would be extremely interesting to see how Mr. Jones would hit the ball with today's modern equipment.
