Catalogue Note, an account of the gift: "In the Spring of 1953, I was going to play golf in Atlanta, GA. I saw Bobby Jones hitting balls with his seven iron on the practice tee near the first hole. Bob had his crutches leaning on a chair close to where I was standing. When he noticed me, he stopped, smiled, and greeted me by name. He asked me to put his crutches on the ground and sit down for awhile. He continued to hit balls, stopping to tell me stories about himself, and he kept hitting until he was done. During our conversation, I noticed his caddie standing down the fairway, and all of the balls that Bob hit landed and stopped within a few yards of each other at the caddie's feet. After all
