We have a Jack Nicklaus back nine charge at the 86 Masters, where he wins and it's his most unexpected and emotional victory. And for a lot of people they remember that as their favorite Masters but the 60 U.S. Open was also special. There we had an Arnie charge, a classic final round Arnold Palmer, Palmer charge. Arnold wins that event. But there's more than just Arnold coming from seven shots back in the final round to win that championship. There is a 20 year old amateur named Jack Nicklaus who had a lead for a while in that final round. And also a 47 year old Ben Hogan . Imagine that leaderboard. One terrific major championship . So a great match-up. And then also on the left side, we have really a battle of great major championship nicknames with the 50 U.S. Open, it's the Miracle at Merion. It is the victory by Ben Hogan just 16 months after a car crash nearly killed him. It's Ben Hogan limping his way to victory in a playoff. Very dramatic victory for obvious reason. And it's going up against the duel in the sun, the 77 British Open, where we had Tom Watson and Jack Nicklaus dueling at Saturday and Sunday at Turnberry and it was such great golf. It was just one golfer throwing a haymaker at the other and the other answering with a haymaker.

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.
