Claimed the fourth title of his career in dramatic circumstances in the 2013 Open de España, finally edging out Germany’s Max Kieffer on the ninth hole of a sudden-death play-off which also featured Felipe Aguilar for three holes. It equalled the European Tour record for the longest play-off, set at the 1989 Dutch Open, and the victory came two years after Jacquelin’s previous triumph, in the 2011 Sicilian Open. Also won the 2007 BMW Asian Open in Shanghai – a wire-to-wire victory – finally landing the main prize having previously won lesser prizes at BMW events including a stereo system for a low round and a BMW Z8 after a hole-in-one. His elusive maiden European Tour success arrived in Spain in October 2005 when he won the Open de Madrid on his 238th European Tour start. Graduated from the Challenge Tour in 1997 when he finished fourth in the Rankings after winning twice during the season. Dreamed of being a professional footballer until a knee injury at age 13 forced him to turn his attention to other pursuits. Took up tennis, then switched to golf and enjoyed a successful amateur career before turning professional in 1995.
