Legendary golfer Jack Nicklaus, the six-time winner of the Masters and World Golf Hall of Fame member, proved that he still has plenty of strength in his swing with an incredible hole in one at the Masters Par 3 Contest on Wednesday.
On the fourth hole of the contest, the 75-year-old Nicklaus, the only 18-time winner of the majors and five-time PGA Player of the Year, made a shot that seemed to overshoot the hole by a long shot, but slid backwards perfectly into an Eagle.
Earlier in the day, Nicklaus interviewed with ESPN’s Scott van Pelt and predicted that he would make an ace… and so he did.
