“In addition to our brand’s namesake being one of the greatest golfers to ever live, Mr. Jones also was a tremendous patriot. As early as age 15, Mr. Jones was part of an extended golf exhibition tour to raise money for the American Red Cross during the First World War, and he followed that up, by serving on the front lines in World War II at age 42, actually having been part of the second wave entering Normandy on D-Day Plus One.”
