Fifty-one years ago today, Jack #Nicklaus, at 23, became the youngest at the time to win the #Masters, beating Tony Lema by a stroke. It was Jack’s second #major and the first of his six Green Jackets. “The 1963 Masters to me was a special win,” the Golden Bear said. “All wins are special. It was my second major after winning the U.S. Open in ’62. But it was a place where I always wanted to win. I always loved #Augusta. Bob Jones was my idol. I loved his facility. I loved what he represented in the game of golf. To win his tournament was really very, very special. That week was probably one of the most important weeks of my career, because it established my ability to win at that golf course, so it set up the rest of my career at Augusta. It’s something that more than 50 years later is something that’s still very special to me.” #themasters #goldenbear #jacknicklaus ⛳️
