PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. -- About 500 people attended a memorial service today for the 17-month-old grandson of golf Hall of Famer Jack Nicklaus.
 
Little Jake Walter Nicklaus apparently drowned in a hot tub at his parents' house in North Palm Beach on Tuesday. His father is Steve Nicklaus, one of the golfer's five children.
 
Golfers Raymond Floyd and Ian Baker-Finch attended the service in Palm Beach Gardens.
 
Officials say the toddler apparently slipped away from a nanny after they had left the pool area.
 
Jake was one of 17 grandchildren of Jack and Barbara Nicklaus.
