Jack Nicklaus
  • The record-tying round that Nicklaus shot on the third day of the tournament was the most overpowering in the long history of the Masters. Eight of his drives were more than 300 yards. Twice his second shot on par-5 holes was a five-iron. Fifteen times he had birdie putts of 25 feet or less. Only twice was he in the rough. Here he assesses each stroke of his fabulous round and offers some insights on how a lot of skill and a little luck added up to 64.
