Nicklaus salutes Lundquist with '86 Masters memory

RSS

As CBS broadcaster Verne Lundquist called his final SEC Championship Game on Saturday, Jack Nicklaus saluted him with this tweet about the 1986 Masters.

Lundquist, 76, who is semi-retiring - he will continue to call college basketball and golf after calling next week's Army-Navy game - made the iconic "Yes, SIR!!!" call on Nicklaus' 17th-hole birdie during the final round of his epic sixth Masters victory at age 46.
