Peter Jacobsen represents everything a professional athlete and committed community leader should be. Through the years he has used his talents and status to transcend the game of golf and touch the lives of many. He’s a fierce competitor, consummate entertainer, community leader, passionate executive, and a caring family man.
A 37-year veteran on the PGA TOUR, and a 10-year member of the Champions Tour, Peter has established himself as the unofficial ambassador of golf. He won seven times on TOUR, participated on four national teams and has won twice on the Champions Tour. He has served as a Player Director on the PGA TOUR and is currently a broadcaster for NBC Sports. His TV shows “Peter and Friends" and "Peter Jacobsen Plugged In," ran for three seasons on The Golf Channel. Peter has authored two books, "Buried Lies: True Tales and Tall Stories From the PGA TOUR," published in 1993 and “Embedded Balls,” published in 2005. On TOUR, he represents several companies and products including Lexus.
Peter is the President and Chief Executive Officer of Peter Jacobsen SPORTS, a sports marketing and event management firm. Peter’s business acumen also extends to golf course design. He co-designed The Oregon Golf Club in West Linn, Ore.; Genoa Lakes Golf Club and Resort in Lake Tahoe, Nev.; Blackhorse Golf Club in Cypress, Tex.; Brasada Canyons Golf Club in Powell Butte, Ore; Rope Rider Golf Club in Suncadia Wash; and continues golf course design as a principal of the Jacobsen Hardy Golf Course Design Company, based in Houston, Tex.
In 2013, Jacobsen was named the winner of the Payne Stewart Award, an award presented annually to a professional golfer who represents the values of character, charity and sportsmanship. The past winners have all distinguished themselves through their respect for the game, the TOUR’s tradition of charity and their ability to make a positive difference in the lives of others.
