About Jack Newton
Jack Newton was a legendary Australian professional golfer, born on January 30, 1950, in New South Wales. He was a prominent figure in the world of golf during the 1970s and 1980s, and his career was marked by numerous accolades and achievements.
Newton's passion for golf began at a young age, and he quickly rose through the ranks to become one of the most promising young golfers in Australia. He turned professional in 1971 and quickly made a name for himself on the international golf circuit.
Throughout his career, Newton won a total of 20 professional tournaments, including two European Tour events and two PGA Tour of Australasia events. He also represented Australia in numerous international competitions, including the World Cup and the Eisenhower Trophy.
