John Jacobs Personal Notes
Grew up on a golf course as a child as his father was director of parks and recreation for the city of Los Angeles.
Was assisted in the development of his game by his brother, Tommy, a four-time winner on the PGA TOUR.
His dream foursome would include his brother, Arnold Palmer and Walter Hagen, with maybe Ben Hogan thrown in to offset Hagen.
Enjoys horse racing and says if he could have one job outside of golf for a day it would be having the opportunity to call a race at a track.
Enjoys Italian food.
Favorite athletes are Michael Jordan and Arnold Palmer.
Selects Winston Churchill and Franklin D. Roosevelt as the two people in history he would most like to meet because their decisions changed our world.
Biggest thrills in golf were making the Champions Tour and winning 2003 Senior PGA Championship.
Good friend of former Champions Tour player and broadcaster Gary McCord.
