“I began to play better and at last won a tournament, the Pringle at Royal

Lytham. My start there was not exactly promising for I began with a seventy-five

 but followed it with a seventy and made the cut. In the third round a sixty-eight

 enabled me to pull back five shots on David Snell so that with a round to go I

 was only one behind. Over the early holes in the afternoon I did not play well

 and when I took a seven at the sixth I appeared to have little chance. Tony

 Grubb, Tommy Horton, Dave Thomas were all challenging Snell but after a

 twenty-foot birdie three at the eight and a par three at the ninth, five of us

 were level. I had another birdie three at the tenth, holed from eight yards for a

 three at the fifteenth and came back in thirty-two to win by four shots from

 Snell. A first prize in England at last and the £750 was doubly welcome as that

 night I flew to Canada, having decided to compete on the Canadian Open.

 My form improved a lot and tenth place earned me 4,000 dollars.”

Official Scoreboard - 1974 Scandanavian Enterprises Open


Scandinavian Enterprises Open - £30,000

Nowhere in Continental Europe has golf caught on with the masses in the

 manner it has in Sweden. Much of this can be credited to their national sporting

 hero, Sven Tumba, who turned professional golfer after a distinguished Olympic

 career. But eventually the game’s intrinsic challenge became its biggest selling

 point.

However the enthusiasm of the Swedes knows no bounds and they could not

 comprehend the terror that a camera-click holds for the professional golfer at

 work. The task befell Tony Jacklin, like a tired but patient schoolmaster, to lecture

 them throughout the four rounds on the Bokskogen course, near Malmo, about

 showing consideration for the performers.

“After the shot, please! Don’t click until after!” became his constant cry and it

 provoked a reaction among the Swedish press with one newspaper calling him

 “Prima Donna Jacklin”. It was unfair, but if Jacklin pondered on the fairness of

 every word written he would never sleep.

Jacklin had come to the Bokskogen course without a win all season in Europe

 and best by an angered frustration about the way his career was progressing. He

 felt the good golf was almost there. But then he had said the same thing before

 the British Open and nothing had gone right at Royal Lytham.

He opened his Scandinavian challenge with a 70 and nobody will ever convince

 him that it would not have been 69 if he had not encountered camera trouble

 around the last green. He tried three times to play a wedge, but each time was

 forced to step away as another shutter clicked. The ball finished 15 feet from the

 hole and the camera chorus began again. There was no possibility of holing for a

 birdie after that. Even so, he still led by a stroke over defending champion Bob

 Charles with South African Hugh Baiocchi and American Danny Edwards at 72.

The next day the tournament all but finished. Or rather Jacklin moved himself so

 far from the rest of his challengers in such abysmal conditions that only an Act of

 God, the Third World war and two broken legs could have prevented him taking

 the title. By the end of the day he had set a new course record of 65, opened up

 a five-stroke lead on his nearest challenger, young Scot Sam Torrance, and was

 considered by many of his rivals as having played the best round of golf of the

 year in Europe. He broke the record on a day when the wind swirled through the

 trees with such treachery that almost every hole presented a shot into a

 crosswind. Most professionals were happy to settle for something around 75.

Those who know Jacklin and his moods could discern early that he was in the right

 frame of mind from the manner in which he dealt with his first crisis. On the 200

yard 2nd hole he aimed left, hoping the crosswind would carry his ball back to the

 green. But he over-commentated and the ball finished in the sand. He splashed

 out beautifully and sank the putt. By the 9th hole, he was three under par, even

 though still obliged at times to remonstrate with shutter-happy photographers.

In that second round Torrance put together a splendid inward 31, never facing

 anything longer than a 15-footer. But he marred his score earlier by driving again

 a tree on the 8th hole and taking a double-bogey 6. By the end of the day

 Jacklin was at 135, Torrance at 140, Bob Charles at 141 and Peter Oosterhuis at

 142.

The reason for Jacklin’s transformation? He said simply that the putts had

 dropped. He never really plays badly between tee and green, but the difference

 for him between a good score and an ordinary performance rests with his

 putting touch.

Over the last two rounds the rest of his rivals were playing for second place.

 Jacklin’s record shows that once he gets a lead he does not let go. And, as that

 tournament proceeded, the only doubt remaining was whether he could equal

 or beat the twelve-stroke winning margin record for the European Tour. Tony

 opened his lead to ten strokes with a third-round 69 for 204.

No challenge developed in Sunday’s final round. Torrance took an 8 at the 7th

 hole and bowed out. Oosterhuis remained in low gear, muttering that perhaps

 he had played too much, and Spaniard Jose Canizares indulged himself with

 seven strokes on the last hole via a ditch, but still took second-prize money at

 290.

Jacklin did not break the record. He finished with a 75 – 279, admitting that it

 was difficult to play hard when instinct told you it did not matter. When a press

 man told him he had missed the record by a stroke, he smiled: “I see, Jacklin fails

 again. Even when you win – you can’t win.”
