The 2003 season was Jacquelin's best on the European Tour since he graduated from the Challenge Tour in 1997 where he finished fourth on the Rankings after winning three times during the season. Although still looking for that elusive first victory on The European Tour, his consistent form, which saw him miss only five cuts in his 29 outings, saw him finish 20th on the Volvo Order of Merit, his best placing. . . Came closest to victory in the 2001 Compass Group English Open where he finished second narrowly missed out on forcing a play-off with eventual champion Peter O'Malley. . . The 2003 season yielded five top ten finishes including three third places in five weeks from the end of August to the end of September. Established three course records between August and October to underline his huge talent. . . Dreamed of being a professional soccer player 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.
