Bobby Jones “Calamity Jane” Putter
The Bobby Jones Calamity Jane putter is a replica head of his famous putter. It shows the rose “cleek mark” (brand) of Robert Condie of St Andrews who made the first Calamity Jane for William Winton a golf retailer who sold clubs in the Acton area of London, before going into the club making business in Montrose. Jones used this putter and its remake from 1924 through 1930 to win 13 major championships. The head comes complete with Jones’ signature stamped on it. The Calamity Jane II is on display at the USGA Museum in Far Hills New Jersey.
Jones was the most successful golfer in the period between the two World Wars to compete on a national and international level. During his peak as a golfer from 1923 to 1930, he dominated top-level competition, and competed very successfully against the world’s best professional & amateur golfers. Jones often beat stars such as Walter Hagen and Gene Sarazen, the era’s top pros. Jones earned his living mainly as a lawyer, and competed in golf only as an amateur primarily on a part-time basis and chose to retire from competition at age 28.
In 1930 he achieved the ‘Holy Grail of Golf’ winning all 4 majors in the same calendar year. A feat that has still never been repeated.
In 1930 the 4 majors were the US Open, the US Amateur, the British Amateur & the Open Championship.
