Subject: John Jacobs: Former Ryder Cup captain and European Tour founder dies

Written By: Philip Eno on 01/13/17 at 6:26 am

Former Ryder Cup captain and founding father of the European Tour John Jacobs has died aged 91. Jacobs, from Yorkshire, competed in the Ryder Cup in 1955, before captaining the side twice, most notably in 1979 when European players competed for the first time. But it was in his coaching career and role in establishing the European Tour that he will be best remembered for. He served as the Tour's tournament director-general from 1971 to 1975.
