You've passed your golf course entrance exam, completed your membership, and received your DGV card. Now nothing stands in the way of my golf career. With all my freshly acquired knowledge and skills (a big word for my bungling on the course), I wanted to quickly improve the club target of 54, which is not officially called a "handicap" until 36. Easier said than done.
Tiger Woods is world famous, and even many non-golfers know his name. The situation is different with Jack Nicklaus. But even without his name meaning anything to anyone, Nicklaus must also be accorded the status of a true golf legend.
Nicklaus was born on January 21, 1940 in the US city of Columbus, Ohio. In keeping with his age, which is now 82, his great days as a professional golfer are already decades behind him. But the "Golden Bear," as he is nicknamed, still leaves his mark today.
