Australian golfer. Born in Sydney, Australia, in 1954: received the MBE in 1974.

Born in 1954 in Sydney, Australia, but raised in Melbourne, Jane Lock took up golf at the age of 16 and, within a year, was playing with a single-figure handicap. While still a teenager, she won three successive Australian junior championships and, in 1975, won both the Australian junior and senior championships. She subsequently won three Australian championships and represented her country in 30 competitions, setting course records six times. In 1978, she won the Espinrito Santo World Amateur Golf championship for Australia for the first time. Lock turned professional in 1980 and went on to play on the American circuit. She returned to Australia in 1986, after fracturing her arm at the Glendale Open.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
