The Life and Contributions of Jack Nicklaus
To many Jack Nicklaus is the greatest golfer of all time. He has set just about every record golf has to offer. He has won just about every P.G.A. golf tournament the tour has to offer. Jack Nicklaus has done so much for the game of golf. Too many times people only see Jack for the records and the championships instead of the change that has taken place in the game of golf since the Golden Bear stepped to the stage in 1961.

Jack Nicklaus is not just a great golfer, but also a man who has helped make golf what it is today.
