Before his start with the Shockers, Jones was a 14-year PGA tour veteran. He was also the 1969 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year. He’s received honors from the Kansas Sports Hall of Fame, inducted for both accomplishments as a player and a coach.

Jones said he will most remember his interactions with players more than anything.

“Seeing those kids graduate and go on to become good adults, those will be the things that I will remember the most,” Jones said.
