John Jacobs OBE was a great friend to all golfers, and me. John Jacobs was one of the big four. Also included in this group are Arnold Palmer, Seve Ballesteros and Tiger Woods. This is the group of the most influential golfing figures ever. The other three are the ultimate popularisers of the game and hugely influential players who inspired millions to take up the game, whilst Jacobs was the man who made their enthusiasm last with the principles of an enduring golf swing.
Without John Jacobs, millions would have tried the game and given up; he allowed golfers of all abilities to play a more worthwhile game of golf and to improve their performance.
He was the principle designer of the modern golf swing and every golf professional worth their salt today will be the beneficiary of his clear thinking and the simple manner in which he defined the principles of the golf swing.Read More
