Bobby Jones Equipment Facts

By Wayne Lin

Bobby Jones was the only golfer to win four major championships in a single season. Years after his retirement, he started to manufacture his own equipment. His company is one of the oldest manufacturers of golf clubs and accessories.

Designer

The designer and creator of modern Bobby Jones clubs and accessories is Jesse Ortiz, who has been in the business of golf-club making since 1968.

Merging Two Brands

When Jesse Ortiz merged with Bobby Jones golf, he created a new club line that is hybrid-heavy.

Uniqueness

Bobby Jones golf clubs were designed specifically to have a lower center of gravity so golfers have a greater chance of hitting a shot to their liking.

Bobby Jones Hybrids

A popular choice amongst professionals, Bobby Jones hybrids are shorter in length than fairway woods, giving the golfer better balance. The hybrids also have a flatter head to help get the ball out of any grass.

Women's Clubs

All Bobby Jones women's clubs are designed with a higher loft in order to get better height, and in some instances, better distance on the ball.

Workshop Edition Driver

The edition drivers are front heavy, while keeping the back end light. Ortiz invented it this way, combined with the low center of gravity, to help golfers drive the ball farther.
