How to make your grandfather proud – Option #1.
The Masters – a tradition unlike any other. I don’t know what it is, but Augusta National is something special. It is a place that has so much history, it seems like anything is possible. Jack Nicklaus’ grandson, G.T., was caddying for his grandfather during the Par 3 Contest The Masters holds every year. A few days prior, Nicklaus asked G.T. if he wanted a shot at number 9 (the last hole of the contest) and he obliged. G.T. even took a few swings on the practice tee a few hours prior to see if he could make his swing in the caddie gear. Well, it seems like it wasn’t a hindrance because this dude pulled the string on one for an ace.
“Watching your grandson do something, it’s really special. I got a few tears. [ESPN broadcaster] Curtis [Strange] asked me going by where that ranks. I said, ‘That’s No. 1.’ My wins, that’s OK, but to have your grandson make a hole-in-one and watch him do it, man, that’s amazing.” said Nicklaus.
Another year – another great memory for one of the greatest of all time.
