Jones' Grand Slam: All-time Greatest Golf Feat?

Day 23 without playing golf

Bobby Jones, an amateur who played in an era of hickory shafts and match play events, won all four majors in 1930. Jim McCabe of the Boston Globe opines that Jones' accomplishment beats all.

"His Grand Slam conquest -- victories in the British Amateur, British Open, U.S. Open and U.S. Amateur -- remains the greatest feat in golf history," wrote McCabe on NBCSports.com.

Yes. Especially since he was an amateur, very sick, and could basically only play those tournaments.
