Jack Nicklaus still has it and sank a hole-in-one in the par 3 contest at The Masters.
The Golden Bear is the greatest golfer to play the gentleman’s sport and he showed he’s still got that beautiful swing on Wednesday when he had an ace in the par 3 contest at The Masters.

He may be 75-years-young, but he’s still better than you and I could ever dream of being on the links and with Arnold Palmer and Gary Player watching, Nicklaus brought his iron back and delivered a textbook swing and dropped the ball deftly on the green and let it find its home at the bottom of the cup.

Jack makes it look easy, doesn’t he?
I can’t even do this when I play miniature golf.
As if that wasn’t impressive enough, Nicklaus called it earlier in the day on SportsCenter in a conversation with Scott Van Pelt.
The owner of 18 majors and six green jackets from 1963-1986 is an American treasure and I think his record 18 majors is looking even more impressive with the failures of Tiger Woods over the last few years.
Woods was supposed to blow past Nicklaus and hold the record for the most major championships, but Woods is stalled at 14 and may never win another one and gives his 18 a newfound respect.
The Masters tournament begins on Thursday morning with the first two rounds on ESPN and the final two rounds on Saturday and Sunday on CBS.
