Thanks, Jack, for the Memories.

The Bear Bids Farewell to Augusta National

Six green jackets - Jove among Golf Gods. When I was a kid caddying at Pine Lake CC, Mr. Nicklaus was The Man, with crushing drives (using the puny persimmon!), surgical iron play, and ESP: Extra-Sensory Putting. I began as a soldier in Arnie's Army, and crossed lines to join the Clan of the Golden Bear.

This event sends a chilling telegraph to me of the grind of time.

Hagen, Jones, Hogan, Snead, Palmer....Nicklaus!
