Introducing Jimmy Jones, the up-and-coming professional golfer from Tampa, Florida, who is making a name for himself in the world of golf. While his mother, Canadian Golf Hall of Fame member Dawn-Coe Jones, passed away in 2016, her influence on her son's career is evident.
Growing up, Jones was a competitive hockey player until the age of 18 when he chose to pursue golf as his profession. Since then, he has made impressive strides in his career, showcasing his skill and dedication to the sport.
Jones has participated in several tournaments, including his professional debut at Point Grey in 2019. He has also made appearances in the Vancouver Open and the BC Match Play Championship, demonstrating his potential as a promising young golfer.
One of Jones' notable traits is his use of a Canadian toonie as his ball marker, paying homage to his Canadian roots through his mother. Off the course, he is an avid fan of the NHL's Tampa Bay Lightning, with Steven Stamkos being his favorite athlete.
Despite being relatively new to the professional golfing scene, Jones' ambition and drive are evident in his choice of walk-up song, "Thunderstruck" by AC/DC. If given the opportunity, Jones would love to trade places with Tiger Woods for a day to experience what it's like to be a legendary golfer.
Jimmy Jones is a golfer to watch, and we at Sundog Eyewear are excited to see what the future holds for this talented young athlete.
