    Pro Golfer Peter Jacobsen once wrote in a letter "I'd love to see Mr _________ join the PGA, just so we could kick him out."

    Hint: this was the 80's.

    Fill in the blank. Bonus: why was Jacobsen mad at the player?

    Did he explain why he wanted to kick Lendl out if indeed he did join? That does not seem clear at all.
