When the 1986 Masters Tournament teed off, Jack Nicklaus was near the end of his legendary career. At age 46 and six years removed from his last major championship – the 1980 PGA Championship – Nicklaus was not expected to compete at Augusta. Tell that to the heart of a champion. Compete, Jack did. In fact, he competed to the point of being in contention Sunday, which ended up being a day that few sports fans will ever forget. At the 15th hole he was four shots behind Seve Ballesteros. But he kept chipping away, and when he sank an 18-foot birdie putt on 17, he held the lead and finished it off for his remarkable 18th career major title. What made the putt even more legendary was the sight of Jack “walking it in” right after he struck it as well as the call of “Yes Sir!” from legendary announcer Verne Lundquist. The moment is captured here.
