Jack Nicklaus:”Winning the 1986 Masters was a Mistake”

by Jeff Skinner

I was glad to see I am not the only one that thinks that Corey Pavin was right on when he said Tiger needs to play a wee bit better to merit a spot on the Ryder Cup team.  Christine Brennan feels the same way and respects Pavin’s position.  I have to admit I feel a little odd disagreeing with Jack Nicklaus but what does he know: he’s only the greatest golfer of all time.

Jack and the boys kick off his Memorial Tournament today with The Skins Game.  Tiger and Phil headline the two fivesomes in the nine hole tournament.  It’s on The Golf Channel at 1:00pm EST.

One of the great aspects of the memorial is that we get to see and hear Jack.  Here’s Jack talking about Tiger and his chances to break his record.  He even admits to taking it easy and not practicing enough after he turned forty.  Oh yea, and he says his winning the 1986 Masters was probably a mistake.  What a comedian he is!
