Happy birthday to Jack Nicklaus, the greatest player in the history of golf!


Jack's victory at the 1986 Masters was one of the top five wins of all-time by any player, i.e. Quimet in 1913 at Brookline GC, Hogan's U.S. Open win in 1950 at Merion; Tiger's 1977 record setting win of the Masters in 1977, and Tiger's U.S. Open win at Torrey Pines GC on one leg in 2008.
