Three British golfers inducted into Hall of Fame

British golf figures Neil Coles, John Jacobs and Sir Michael Bonallack were among eight people inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in St Augustine, Florida on Monday.

Sir Michael Bonallack won the British Amateur and English Amateur championship ten times in total. He played on nine Walker Cup teams, captained three times and was secretary of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews for 16 years before retiring in 1999. He is considered by many to be one of the finest amateur players of all time.It has just been announced that he is to join the European Tour as a non-executive director.

John Jacobs, captain of two Ryder Cup teams, was the first director general of professional golf in Europe and helped bring Europe and the United Kingdom golf together into what is now the European Tour.

Neil Coles has claimed 45 titles in six decades, the only professional golfer to do so and narrowly beating Gary Player to the record. A record that will almost certainly never be broken. He also has participated in eight Ryder Cups and was the first European Tour board of directors chairman.
