John Charles Jacobs was born on the Isle of Wight in 1867. Before taking up golf seriously as a professional he first trained as a coach builder and no doubt his wood working skills will have helped him to produce quality golf clubs when joining the Royal Isle of Wight Golf Club in 1892. When he joined the club, Archie Simpson was the professional who will have helped Jacobs with the art of club making. Simpson departed soon after and Jacobs took up the position as the professional. He was not known as a top player but gained a reputation for producing unusual clubs made to a high standard. A number of his clubs, including this putter, were patented for their design. Other stamps show the ‘Crescent Moon’ cleekmark used by James Gourlay who will have supplied the head, and Warranted Hand Forged.

The thin aiming line between his name and Sunningdale is original, not added at a later date.
