TONY JACKLIN


When I started out in golf I thought; ‘How good can I get at this impossible game?’ Tony Jacklin


In the end Tony Jacklin became the best in the world and the course served as the ideal arena in which to practice the many disciplines of the game, as well as the life skills that came with it.


‘Life is an adventure and golf can give you the experiences that help shape your life. It gives us the chance to express ourselves physically and emotionally.’


Early on in my career, when it could have been easy to be overawed by all the famous players around me, my father reminded me; ‘They’ve got two arms, two legs and head on their shoulders, just like you.’ Tony Jacklin


Tony is one of the very few players to be invited to become an honorary member of the Royal and Ancient. He was also inducted to the World Golf Hall of Fame and was awarded a CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire) for his services to golf. He won both The Open and the U.S. Open and was the revolutionary captain of the European Ryder Cup team, changing their fortunes in 1985 by ending the U.S. team’s traditional domination.

He also introduced an iconic and elegant style to the European team, both on and off the course. Few people in sports become champions and legends – Tony has done both, with grace, humility and above all, natural talent.


His skills, as an artist, both on and off the course, have led to him to become a well-known and celebrated course designer, working on some of the best and most beautiful courses in the world.


‘As a designer I want to leave my creative stamp on the land and give the player something they will enjoy and always remember.’ Tony Jacklin


Tony also has an additional talent in the art of marquetry, an area of his artistic life that few people know about. He is a family man who lives in Florida, still playing in senior tours and exhibition games around the world, whilst continuing to build the design practice and talk about the necessary changes in the future of the game, championing the everyday player and newcomer wherever possible.


‘Everything I know has been through golf, from listening to others and experiencing everything the game teaches you.’ Tony Jacklin


Few people in sport can truly be called ‘a legend’. Tony Jacklin is certainly one of the few.
