Jack William Nicklaus who is also known as The Golden Bear, is a retired professional golfer and golf course designer from the United States.

Nicklaus is regarded as one of the best golfers of all time. He won 117 events in the cause of his professional career.

He won a record 18 major tournaments in a quarter-century, three more than Tiger Woods.



Nicklaus mostly participated in major championships such as the Masters Tournament, the U.S. Open, the Open Championship, and the PGA Championship while also participating in a limited number of regular PGA Tour events.

He played in 164 major tournaments, more than any other golfer, and concluded with 73 PGA Tour titles, third only to Sam Snead (82) and Tiger Wood (82).

Nicklaus was second in the 1960 U.S. Open, two strokes behind Arnold Palmer, and won the U.S. Amateur in 1959 and 1961. At age 21, Nicklaus began his career around the end of 1961.

At the 1962 U.S. Open, he won his first professional match, beating Palmer by three strokes in an 18-hole playoff the next day, sparking a rivalry between the two greatest golfers of all time.

At age 26, Nicklaus became the youngest golfer to have won all four major championships when he won The Open Championship and the Masters Tournament consecutively in 1966. In 1970, he captured a second Open Championship.
