JACK NICKLAUS

FILE–Jack Nicklaus takes pleasure in watching his putt drop for a birdie on the 17th hole at Augusta National Golf Course on April 13, 1986. The shot gave him the lead and ultimately, his sixth Masters title. Forty-six years old, winner of only two tournaments the previous five years, he came to Augusta National with little hope of winning. Even after he shot a 69 in the third round, he wasn’t among the leaders. But Nicklaus began one of the great charges in Masters history, capped off by an eagle-birdie-birdie-par streak on the final four holes. To this day, his one-shot victory over Greg Norman and Tom Kite might be the most memorable tournament in Augusta history, and it turned out to be the last victory for Nicklaus on the regular PGA Tour.(AP Photo/phil sandlin)
