Palmer, Hogan and Nicholas leading the final round of a major, gotta be a great major. But the 62 U.S. Open that it's up against was equally dramatic. And that, of course, was the great confrontation of the young Nicklaus, 22-years-old against the king, Arnold Palmer in the king's backyard in Oakmont. And Nicklaus takes him down. They were paired together in the first two rounds. Of course, they loved Arnie there and they hated Jack. And it was the beginning of their famous rivalry. So, terrific match there. And then, also, I wanted to highlight the 1977 British Open against the 2001 Masters. Well the 77 British Open, what we have here is the combined star-power of Jack Nicklaus and Tom Watson against Woods here. Nicklaus and Watson had the famous duel in the sun at the 77 British Open. They played Saturday and

Sammy Ballesteros, Greg Norman , Tom Kyte, all had chances to win late. So, it made for great theater, with Jack prevailing. The '08 U.S. Open was probably the most surprising win of Tiger's career because once it got started, we all realized how seriously this guy was hurt, and the pain he was playing through. He had that fractured tibia and torn knee ligament in his left leg and the part of the drama there was hey, is this guy even gonna be able to finish this major championship . Well, not only does he finish it, but he wins and he, and he wins over 91 holes and didn't just go

Jack Nicklaus's great triumph at Augusta National against the 08 US Open , Tiger Woods and his triumph at Torrey Pines. And in the end the winner is Nicklaus and his 86 Masters. That was my number one seed. But I think in other ways it was an upset just because Tiger Woods drives web action and online action. And Tiger talk drives it so much. In my mind, it's a bit of in upset. It was one of our tightest votes. It was pretty even the whole week, but in the end Jack prevailed. And the Jack had to do some pretty competition to win all of this. He started off against the 53 British Open and Ben Hogan's victory at Carnoustie advanced through that. And, had to beat Arnold Palmer in his US Open victory in 1960 at Cherry Hill. And after, that, he had advanced through the 77 British Open, which was the Duel in
