GOLF.COM | 7 things I learned watching Jack Nicklaus play golfFriday, September 20, 2019
I was born in 1980 and have been playing and watching golf since 1988. I am a PGA Teaching Professional and self-proclaimed golf nerd who lamentably missed the era of the Golden Bear. I always wished I could travel back to see Jack in his prime and experience the excitement that he brought to the game. But as luck would have it, I didn’t need a time machine to watch him play live. I got my chance on Aug 26, 2019.
I am the Director of Instruction at the Club at Creighton Farms in Aldie, Virginia. It’s a Nicklaus Signature Design golf course and we are honored to host the Creighton Farms Invitational annually with Jack Nicklaus. Large funds are raised for the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation and PKU Alliance. So per usual Mr. Nicklaus arrived in town a couple weeks ago for the big event.
