This piece of marquetry depicts "The Concession" and was crafted and signed by Tony Jacklin. The concession happened in 1969, with Jack Nicklaus’ famous gesture of conceding the final putt in the Ryder Cup to Tony Jacklin, clinching the first tie in the competition’s history. Decades later, the two golf legends paired up to design and create The Concession Golf Club in the Lakewood Ranch section of Manatee County, Florida.
Tony Jacklin was a very successful English golfer, with 2 major championship wins, and was also the Ryder Cup captain for Europe from 1983-1989. He was the captain of the European team that beat the United States in 1985, which was their first win in 28 years. He also was the nonplaying captain of the team during Europe's first-ever victory in the United States in 1987. In 1989, Jacklin was in his last stint as captain of the European Ryder Cup team, Europe managed to hold off the US for the second tie in the history of the cup. Jacklin also made the first televised hole in one in Britain, on the 16th hole at Royal St. George's.
One of his hobbies besides golf was marquetry which is inlaid work of variously colored woods. The marquetry artist, or marquetarian, select the veneers based on the right combination of grain, color, and texture needed to create the desired artistic impression. Next, a pattern is chosen and the individual veneer pieces that will make up the design or picture are cut out using either a knife or a fret saw. Following this, the pieces are glued together and the completed design is mounted onto a rigid base and sanded flat. Finally, a finish is applied to protect the wood and the marquetry piece is completed. The infinite variety of veneers, grain, and figuration ensures a unique one-of-a-kind product every time.
