Jack Nicklaus Interview
Golf Quest: Fun Golf Related Questions
I recently had the pleasure and opportunity to interview the greatest player of all-time, Jack Nicklaus. The 18-time major winner celebrated his 75th birthday this January, and as you'll learn from the below article his passion for the game still burns bright. The Golden Bear has not only designed close to 400 courses worldwide, but in 2014 The Nicklaus Golf Company released a series of golf balls designed to accommodate three different levels of player by using the traditional tees from which they typically play (White, Blue and Black).
The Columbus, Ohio native was kind enough to answer your 20 questions that will hopefully give you a unique insight to a gentleman we can only refer to as "Mr. Nicklaus". Below is part one of our two part series.
You can play only one course before passing- St. Andrews/Augusta National/Pebble Beach/or other and why?
I would have to say Pebble Beach, but that is a hard trio from which to pick. I chose St. Andrews to finish my career (2005 British Open) because of what it meant to the game of golf and to me, personally. Augusta was wonderful for me throughout my career and the Masters Tournament is such a special event. Those are places - venues - and, to me, Pebble Beach is just a special place and golf course by itself. It's a spectacular experience and setting. I was fortunate to have a very good record there; I loved playing there; and I've always enjoyed it.
Who would be in your dream foursome- past or present and why?
My dream foursome is actually a fivesome, because it would have to include my four boys-Jack II, Steve, Gary, and Michael. As they grew up, it was great incorporating them into the things I was doing, and one of those was having them caddie for me in tournaments. Even more enjoyable though was having them as playing partners in various events. Even when I prepared for major championships in my prime, the best days of preparation were when I could visit a major-championship site early, as was always my practice, and take the boys along and have them play with me. When they were young boys, it was a blast watching them try to break 90 on a U.S. Open layout. I enjoyed it more than they did.
