Happy 73rd Birthday Jack Nicklaus

Happy Birthday Jack Nicklaus.

In my day, you were either an Arnie guy, or a Jack guy, and I was seduced by Palmer’s magnetic personality. But with their playing days long over, I have equal amounts of admiration for both. Indeed, I am rooting for Jack’s record of 18 Majors to never be broken.

The number everyone talks about is eighteen. Perhaps even more remarkable is the fact that he finished second in Majors twenty times. He had 48 top-threes. Within the span of his Majors wins (95 starts), Jack missed the cut just six times. I do not believe we will ever see that kind of long-term consistency again.
