They called him "Emperor Jones", and he dominated the game of golf in his era. He captured 13 major championships in a short eight-year period from 1923 to 1930 including all four in that historic Grand Slam year 1930. Then, at the age of 28 and at the peak of his game, he retired from competitive golf.

Jones was diagnosed with syringomyelia in 1944, a rare and degenerative disease of the central nervous system. Jones would battle the disease for 23 years, first using a cane, then leg braces and finally in a wheelchair. During the final years of his life Jones could not even hold a pen. When Jones was asked about his crippling disease his response spoke volumes about the kind of man he was, ā€œIn life, as in golf, we all have to play the ball as it lies."

This stunning medallion commemorates one of our favorite Jones' quotes Golf is Played on a Five Inch Course, The Space Between Your Ears" which has been inscribed on one side with Bobby Jones silhouette captured inside a 4 leaf clover (Jones was born on St. Patrick's Day) on the flip side.

Each medallion ball marker measures 1.82ā€.
