Ryder Cup fans are in for a treat after Tony Jacklin was confirmed as special guest at the Bacardi World Par 3 Championship.

Englishman Jacklin, who captained the European team four times, will be at the Fairmont Southampton, which will host An Audience with Tony Jacklin on Saturday, March 23 to complement the tournament at The Turtle Hill Golf Club.

Dinner guests will have the opportunity to spend an evening with one of the game’s most recognisable and influential figures, who as a player won the US Open and Open Majors.

In 1968 Jacklin became the first Briton to win on the PGA Tour after victory at the Jacksonville Open.

A former world No1, he was a pioneer of the European Tour and, along with Seve Ballesteros, a huge supporter and advocate of the Ryder Cup.

Jacklin achieved 27 victories globally on the PGA, European or Senior PGA tours.

The evening will be hosted and moderated by Golf Channel analyst and Morning Drive host, Charlie Rymer, who will provide the audience with opportunities to ask their own questions.

It will be held in the Mid Ocean Amphitheatre and gets under way at 7pm.

It’s priced at $105 per person, including gratuities, and the Bermuda Professional Golfers Association will be the hosts. 

Ticket sales will go live on Monday, February 18 on bdatix.bm.
