The number of awards that Jack Nicklaus has accumulated over his career is incalculable. Jack has received just about every award and honor possible including the highest award given to a civilian by the United States, The Presidential Medal of Freedom. One of the most treasured honors that Jack had during his career was bestowed upon him by his beloved alma mater Ohio State. Jack cherished his days at Ohio State and he even has his own museum there. The ultimate honor for an Ohio State alum is the ceremonial “doting of the I” during halftime of an Ohio State football game. Jack and his dad loved Ohio State football and he certainly appreciated the honor.
