Best Masters Moments: Jack Nicklaus 1986 Win

Yesterday we had Lefty's very first green jacket win, today we're going with a real classic. I'm sure if you ask most older golf fans they'll say that this is their favorite memory from the Masters. I obviously wasn't around to see it but I have heard a ton about it and just the story it's self is incredible. Jack's final major win and final green jacket in 1986. He was 46 years old and pretty much everyone had written him off. He still holds the record for the oldest golfer to ever win the Masters. It had been six years since Jack had won a major. He shot a 30 on the back nine to hold onto the lead. Pretty incredible that Nicklaus won the green jacket one last time. His sixth green jacket. What a way to go out.
