Jacklin lifts the lid on his years as Ryder Cup captain

10.01am 20th September 2021 - Media

AGW member and freelance golf writer Tony Jimenez has teamed up with three-time European Ryder Cup winning captain Tony Jacklin to write a booked entitled “Tony Jacklin: My Ryder Cup Journey”.

One tale among so many great tales is Jacklin revealing how Europe’s historic 1987 win at Muirfield Village, Ohio almost did not happen. Jacklin lifts the lid on how a cash row threatened to strip Europe of some of their biggest names, and how he threatened to quit as captain as the Americans, still smarting from their defeat at The Belfry, tried to tweak the tournament format in their favour.

‘Tony Jacklin: My Ryder Cup Journey’ is available to buy from all good bookshops for £9.99 or online from or by calling 01223 370012.
