Of Masters and Milestones

Jack Nicklaus reflects on magnificent and masterful
Masters victories--50 years since his 1965 win,
40 years since his fifth win in 1975

A decade separates them, but a Green Jacket links them. One was a performance 50 years ago that was dominating--masterful you might say. The other, 40 years ago, is arguably one of the great major championship duels in history, or as author Gil Capps appropriately dubbed it in his book, The Magnificent Masters.

This year and this week mark two significant milestone anniversaries for Jack Nicklaus: The 50th or Golden Anniversary of his record-setting Masters victory in 1965; and the 40th anniversary of the Golden Bear's thrilling 1975 win, in which Jack emerged from a down-the-stretch duel against Johnny Miller and Tom Weiskopf to don the fifth of his record six Green Jackets.

Crenshaw to stand in for Palmer and join Golden Bear & Gary Player in Masters Tournament Par 3 Contest

After all these years--including 43 starts at Augusta National, and his sixth and final legendary win in 1986--the Golden Bear's love affair with the Masters is anything but over. This year, Jack Nicklaus will participate in the tournament's family-oriented Par 3 Contest, with 15-year-old grandson Stevie Nicklaus as his caddie. As has become tradition, Nicklaus will play with long-time friend Gary Player. But missing this year will be the final piece of The Big Three--Arnold Palmer. Battling a shoulder injury since December, Palmer will not play in this year's Par 3. Taking his place is two-time Masters winner Ben Crenshaw, who, at age 63, will make his final Masters Tournament start this week.
