Golfing Picture of Jack Nicklaus the 1986 Masters Champion
This Golfing Picture item is a photograph of Jack Nicklaus wearing his green Augusta Jacket after winning the 1986 Masters Championship
In 1986, at age 46, Nicklaus became the oldest Masters winner in history, a record which still stands. Nicklaus capped his major championship career by recording his sixth Masters victory under incredible circumstances, posting a six-under par 30 on the back nine at Augusta for a final round of seven-under-par 65. At the 17th hole, Nicklaus hit his second shot to within 18 feet (5.5 m) and rolled it in for birdie, raising his putter in celebration and completing an eagle-birdie-birdie run. Nicklaus made a solid par-4 at the 72nd hole, and waited for the succeeding players, several of whom were still in contention, to fall short. Nicklaus played the final ten holes seven under par, with six birdies and an eagle.
