Thirty-two years ago this week, Bobby Jones started his career as an alltime great among golf champions by defeating Bobby Cruickshank in a memorable play-off for the United States Open title at the Inwood Country Club on Long Island, N.Y. Jones's second shot on the 18th, a one-iron out of the rough that went almost 200 yards and stopped two yards from the flag, clinched victory for the 21-year-old Georgian.
