Jack Nick­laus

Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - SCENE -

20-TIME MA­JOR CHAM­PION

Na­tion­al­ity: Amer­i­can

Legacy fac­tor: The death of Arnold Palmer in 2016 was a re­minder of how long the great golfers re­main part of our lives. Nick­laus, along with Gary Player, is one of the last re­main­ing links to golf’s great golden era, when the game and tele­vi­sion be­came deeply en­twined.

On Tour to­day: Jack’s Tour pres­ence lives on in The Memo­rial Tour­na­ment, which he hosts each year at his Muir­field Vil­lage Coun­try Club, in Ohio.

His dual role: Nick­laus oc­cu­pies a place as golf’s premier el­der states­man, in ad­di­tion to be­ing a pro­lific de­signer. He has over 375 cour­ses open for play in 36 coun­tries, with another 45 in de­vel­op­ment.
