Jack Nicklaus, Honorary Masters Starter
ARNIE AND JACK. They just go together. It’s their golf destiny. Now Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus will be seeing each other on the first tee at Augusta National Golf Club for the ceremonial opening shots at The Masters.
“Recently, I was invited by both Augusta National and Arnold to join him on the first tee,” Jack said, “and because he enthusiastically supported the invitation, it became an easy decision for me.”
Jack completely fooled me on this one. I never thought he would do this stuff—or at least not this soon. Because that’s what he told us, and he seemed adamant about it.
Look for them to make it a threesome in the near future. Joining Palmer and Nicklaus on the first tee, Gary Player.
