We should be gearing up to watch round one of The Masters. Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus pandemic, we'll have to wait until November 12 to see competitive golf at Augusta. On Wednesday, however, The Masters and ESPN did some reminiscing, re-airing Jack Nicklaus' historic final round to win the 1986 Masters. It was the final of Jack's six green jackets and without question, the most memorable because of the remarkable back nine surge.
Nicklaus shot a final round 7-under 65, including a 6-under 30 on the remarkable back nine. He finished 9-under, beating Greg Norman and Tom Kite by a single shot. It's arguably the most unforgettable round, with a handful of the most unforgettable shots in golf history, but as great as it was, Jack has said the moment was topped just two years ago during the par 3 tournament, the Wednesday of Masters week.
Jack had his grandson, GT Nicklaus, just 15-years old at the time, take a swing and the end result was the first hole-in-one GT's life. Incredible. Since The Masters and ESPN took a look back, here's a deeper look back at Jack's greatest Masters moments. First is a highlight package of his historic back nine, followed by the live call, from two years ago, of GT's remarkable hole-in-one. Enjoy!
