Happy Birthday Jack Nicklaus

jack n barbara

The Golden Bear turns 77 today and his plans are to play a little tennis, not golf and chill with the family. Sounds like a fine plan to me. As good as Jack was executing his shots on the course many say his real advantage was the mental side of his game. Jack’s ability to focus and maintain his game plan won him many a major. When Jack was at his best the saying went,’when Nicklaus stood on the tee… Continue Reading

10 Things I Think & More

1. It goes to show you…you never know in this game. While all of us are crowning the twenty-somethings as the new Big 3 Adam Scott comes through and shows us what a 35 year old can do on a tough course. On Saturday with a quadruple bogey on fifteen he looked to have lost his chance. But a determined attitude and a new confidence with his putter allowed him to fight back and win for the first time since… Continue Reading

Jordan Spieth Welcomes Historic Challenge

The final round of the 144th Open Championship is primed for an historic finish.  Sunday’s third round was worthy of a final round with many players challenging for the lead. A Monday finish for The Open isn’t ideal but if there had to be an extra day the players certainly did their best to provide a final round worth watching.  This is only the second time in its long run that The Open has closed on Monday and it is… Continue Reading

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner…with a Side of Bacon

David Lingmerth was 0-2 in playoffs going into his duel with Justin Rise. His solid ball striking supported by a healthy dose of good old fashioned guts helped him beat Rose on the third hole of the playoff.  Winning The Memorial at Jack’s Place with the Greatest of All Time shaking your hand as the winner is one special day. Now that’s a first time PGA Tour win worth remembering. Suzann Pettersen has had some ups and downs recently. Winless… Continue Reading

Nicklaus: It’s Always Been About Family

jack usga

I’ve been a Jack Nicklaus fan since I became interested in golf forty years ago.  So I was thrilled when I got the chance to get to see Nicklaus up close and personal. Along with 500 or so unabashedly passionate Nicklaus fans I attended the opening of the Jack Nicklaus Room at the USGA Museum at its headquarters in Far Hills, New Jersey. Jack, his wife Barbara and all but one of his children were there as USGA President Tom… Continue Reading

Jack Nicklaus Is Now a Buffalo Bills Fan

We all know that Jack Nicklaus loves his Ohio St. Buckeyes but I think the Golden Bear just became a big Buffalo Bills fan. Jack’s grandson, Nick O’Leary was selected by the Bills in the sixth round of the NFL Draft. The Florida State grad set records in college and won the John Mackey Award as the nation’s best tight end. Jack has spent plenty of time at all his grandchildren’s sporting events and it’s a safe bet his Gulfstream… Continue Reading

In case you have a life and were not able to watch Jack Nicklaus receive the Congressional Gold Medal yesterday here is the entire ceremony. I, who have no life right now due to rehab from shoulder surgery and snow covered courses sat and watched the live stream. It was almost unbearable listening to gas bag after gas bag read from notes prepared by their staff that probably got the same stories from Wikipedia. I’ll save you some time, fast… Continue Reading

Jack Nicklaus Talks Tiger Woods

jack md

Jack Nicklaus paid the boys at Morning Drive a visit this morning. Jack was flown in by helicopter to Doral where his pal Donald Trump was opening the Jack Nicklaus Villas at his newly revamped Trump National Doral. The Golf Channel had Gary Williams and Matt Gianella on site so since The Greatest of All Time was in town they grabbed him for a quick chat. It is obvious that Jack doesn’t watch much golf, he’s far too busy building… Continue Reading
