Jack Nicklaus has pulled off many firsts at the Masters. The 2020 Masters brings another.

At the ceremonial opening tee shot at Augusta National early Thursday morning, Nicklaus wore his signature Play Yellow cap and a limited-edition glove GOLF.com co-designed with Asher.

After he and Gary Player struck their shots, the six-time Masters champion signed both his hat and glove, which he is auctioning off to support the Children’s Miracle Network’s Play Yellow campaign. Shortly after the ceremony, the auction went live on eBay with a starting bid of $500. All proceeds will benefit the donor’s local children’s hospital.

Over the years, Jack and Barbara Nicklaus, along with the PGA Tour, have raised huge sums to help more than 10 million kids receive treatment at local children’s hospitals across the country.
