Jack Schools Johnny

NGAWire® | 21May14

Although not his biggest fan, I’ve always respected Jack Nicklaus’ golfing accomplishments. He is one of the greatest players of all time.

After watching this video of him schooling Johnny Miller, I’ve become more of a Jack fan than ever.

The below excerpt is taken from Brendan Mohler’s golfdigest.com post from 20May14:

You must see this putt to believe it. But first, the backstory. Jack Nicklaus, Johnny Miller, Tom Watson and Arnold Palmer played a ceremonial round in August 2010 to mark the grand opening of The Golf Club at Harbor Shores in Benton, Mich., a Nicklaus design that will host this week’s Senior PGA Championship. Miller faced an uphill double-breaker of more than 100 feet on the 10th hole and wanted to chip the ball instead, but Nicklaus understandably didn’t want a divot in his brand new green. Johnny further complained that chipping the ball was the only way to get it to the hole, so Nicklaus decided to show him how it’s done.
