Jack Nicklaus is Augusta National’s ultimate champion. The Golden Bear won six Masters titles in his career and continues to be a prominent figure at the club several years after he last competed there.
He’s had memorable victories (1986, anyone?) and unexpected runs (remember 1998?), yet he still says one Wednesday shot remains his greatest Masters memory. And that shot wasn’t even struck by Jack — it was the hole-in-one his grandson G.T. made during the 2018 Masters Par-3 Contest.
