Bob Jones IV, grandson of golfer Bobby Jones, speaks at Emory
Dr. Jones, an Atlanta-area psychologist who specializes in sports psychology and executive coaching, speaks about the psychological skills his grandfather developed that enabled him to excel at the game of golf – and at life. The presentation examines the people who shaped Bobby Jones – most importantly, his mother and his paternal grandfather (Robert Tyre Jones) – and the psychological skills he developed that enabled him to excel at golf and, later, to cope gracefully with a debilitating illness. The golfer was diagnosed in 1948 with syringomyelia, a painful and degenerative spinal disease that eventually took his life in 1971. Other Emory Libraries YouTube videos
