Jack Nicklaus Set to Make Another Mark at Augusta National

There are moments that take athletes into rare air. Michael Jordan hitting the jumper against the Jazz in 1997 took him from "top five of all time" to "best player to ever touch a basketball." Lance Armstrong claiming his sixth straight Tour de France was something of legends. And Jack Nicklaus, winning the greatest golf tournament ever, in 1986 at the ripe age of 46, took him into another world with golf historians. The guy not only dominated in his prime, but for one day, on his favorite golf course, he could post a back nine that will forever live in hearts of dimple lovers.

Like Cherry Hills is always linked with Arnold Palmer, and the Old Course at St. Andrews rings in with Peter Thomson, Augusta is Jack's playground, and good news came off the wire a couple of days ago when it was announced that the Golden Bear would be joining the ceremonial first tee celebration to ring in the Masters.

Nicklaus said he never wanted to be a part of this event, probably because of pride more than anything else, but Arnold Palmer asked him to join and he accepted, with Gary Player probably on his way to the first tee soon enough to complete the big three.

There isn't much more I can say about Jack and Augusta without ruining it, so here is a video, of that day in 1986, the best golf day ever and one that still, until I'm 80 and ceremonial first tee age, will give me goose bumps to rival the Rockies.
