1963 masters
On the 50th anniversary of his first Masters victory, Jack Nicklaus reflects on a historic win that set the tone for an unparalleled legacy at Augusta.

Q. Jack, can you first provide just some general thoughts about the significance of 1963 and that first Masters Tournament victory--the first of a record six at Augusta National?

JACK: Can I just say, the 1963 Masters to me was a special win. All wins are special. It was my second major after winning the U.S. Open in 1962. But it was a place where I always wanted to win. I always loved Augusta. Bob Jones was my idol.

JNLL
While the top golfers in the world competed just minutes down the road in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., at The Honda Classic, Jack Nicklaus ventured over to a public park field, where he and son Gary provided insight and input into course design, methodology and progression for the Jack Nicklaus Learning Leagues (JNLL). The leagues, created to attract children to the game and which will be established in public parks and recreation facilities across the country, utilize SNAG(R) equipment in their instruction and team-concept competition for boys and girls, ages 5 through 12.

SNAG Founder Terry Anton, who is overseeing development of the JNLL, was thrilled to discuss the concepts of SNAG programming and equipment with the Golden Bear
, as they experimented with the various layouts that will be used in the leagues.

"Mr. Nicklaus wants the children to be as prepared as possible when they get to the golf course," Anton said. "We all had a great time playing."

The Golden Bear added, "The program graduates from simple to more challenging, and I had fun with it--instantly. I got a hole-in-one on my third hole.
