Vinnie Jones

A renowned tough guy footballer with Wimbledon in the 1980s, he also played for Chelsea, Leeds, Sheffield United and Queens Park Rangers.

When his career ended, he capitalised on his image, becoming an actor playing violent roles, appearing in Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch, Gone in 60 Seconds and Mean Machine. He also played Juggernaut in the 2006 film X-Men: The Last Stand. Now he lives in Los Angeles. This is his first appearance in the Alfred Dunhill Links.
