Today is the birthday of Jack Nicklaus
Today is the birthday of Jack Nicklaus, known as "The Golden Bear he remains one of the greatest professional golfers of all time. With 18 victories in major championships (18), he was continuously ranked as the world's number one golfer. Today he reaches his 70th Birthday.
Nicklaus has also taken part in various off-course activities, including golf course design. And his golf course design company is one of the largest in the world.
Nicklaus was consistently among the longest and straightest hitters on the PGA Tour during his prime. This was more than evidenced by his winning the official long drive contest at the 1963 PGA Championship with a belt of 341 yards, 17 inches. This record lasted more than 20 years.
We have tried to think of some suggestions for Birthday Gifts for Jack and we really have struggled. Someone suggested an Experience Day, Learn to Play Golf, we don’t think so, that person who suggested that is now on Tea making for a week. In the end we thought that the best present would be an Engraved Golf putter, although it may not be his style we think he would really appreciate it. This would make a superb Personalised Birthday Gifts
