Answer: Robert Trent Jones
Jones' sons Robert Trent Jr, and Rees both followed in their father's footsteps and became golf course architects and have between them designed many courses around the world. Jones Senior was born in Ince-in-Makerfield, near Wigan UK and emigrated to USA when five years old. In 1927 he posted the best score of all the amateur golfers at the Canadian Open and in 1987 he received the highest possible honour from the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America, the Old Tom Award. He died in 2000 aged 93.
