Golf Australia Express : Issue 6
LIST THE SIMPLY THE BEST Jack Nicklaus DURING HIS vast career few events escaped a severe mauling by the Golden Bear—and the PGA Championship was certainly not one of them. At the tender age of 23, Nicklaus first tasted PGA glory in 1961—it wouldn’t be the last time either. Now with the scent in his system, Nicklaus’s pursuit was unrelenting, feasting three times in a five-year period (1971, 1973 and 1975). In 1980 he won again, for the fifth time (equalling Walter Hagen with the most event wins). Jack’s record is staggering: the most scores in the 60s (41); the most sub-par rounds (53); he finished in the top 10 15 times and on 12 occasions in the top 3. Nicklaus preyed on golf’s biggest events. When you look at his record, the PGA appears to be among those to delight him the most.
