Back9Network ambassador Tony Jacklin made an impact on the game during his playing years, as well as during his years as captain of the European Ryder Cup team. Looking at the walls in his Bradenton, Fla. home, it’s also clear that the game made an impact on Jacklin.
In this feature, Back9Network correspondent Katie Sundseth visits with Jacklin to examine the World Golf Hall-of-Fame member’s memorabilia collected through the years as well as his original golf-inspired marquetry.
