Jack Nicklaus and the Memorial Tournament
The Memorial Tournament is consistently one of the best run events on the PGA tour. Not only is it a spectacular golf course, but the fan experience and every other aspect is absolutely first class. Not to be overlooked, the Memorial Tournament has brought in over $28 million to various local and national charities since 1976!
In addition to all of these great qualities associated with this tournament, the star each and every year is the host and legend, Jack Nicklaus.
My love for the game of golf came as a young kid watching on television the Golden Bear dominating golf. He became my idol in golf.
Having played professional football and living in the Hollywood, CA area, I have met and gotten to know many different celebrities in sports and entertainment. However, meeting Mr. Nicklaus for the first time approximately 8 years ago at the Memorial was one of the highlights of my career.
The Memorial Tournament will continue to be a personal favorite of mine and I feel honored to be a small part of a great tradition.
