Celebrity encounter: Jack Nicklaus
May 1, 2006 - 02:10 PMGolf legend Jack Nicklaus gave a clinic for invited guests when he opened a new course this morning. I wrote down some quotes, below.
Upon noticing the scruffy beard and earring worn by his caddy: "You can rebel when you're young, but when you grow up, you've got to fit in." [Click photo to enlarge.]
On the squeaking noise made by his artificial hip: "Can you hear that? I think it needs some BVD-40."
On inserting the tee only to a shallow depth: "I like the driver to make contact WAY above the ground. I figure the resistance of air is a lot less than dirt."
