Since you can't get flags from Jack Nicklaus' Majors I decided to put together a collection of Programs from
each of his Major Victories.
I simply love this program I asked
Mr Nickaus to add 1st Major to his autograph. If you ask him how many majors he has he would say 20 not 18. He
includes his 2 US Amateurs as Majors.
Mr. Nicklaus considers his Amateur championship titles as majors.
The 1959 US Amateur was his first. This program is probably the most expensive and most difficult to obtain.
Mr. Nicklaus' 2nd amateur title was won at Pebble Beach.
I asked Mr Nicklaus to add 1st Professional
Major to his autograph on this 1962 US Open program.
Jack's first professional Major was the 1962 US Open held at
Oakmont. He beat Arnold Palmer in a 18 hole playoff. This program is fairly difficult to obtain.
The 1963 Masters was his first Masters victory and he beat Tony Lema
by 1 stroke. This is not really a program it is a Masters Spectator guide from the 1963 Masters.
Jack's first PGA victory was in 1963 and he beat Dave Ragan by 2 strokes.
This is by far the most difficult program to find of Jack's Majors.
Jack Beat both Arnold Palmer and Gary Player by 9 Strokes to claim
his 2nd Masters Victory.
Jack's 3rd Masters win came when he beat both Gay Brewer and
Tommy Jacobs in the Playoff.
Jack's first British Open came in 1966 at Muirfield. He
beat both Doug Sanders and Dave Thomas by 1 stroke. Also photographed is a 1966 signed Open ticket.
Jack's 2nd US Open victory came at Baltusrol in 1967. He
beat Arnold Palmer by 4 strokes.
1970 Open Championship held at St. Andrews was his 2nd Open Championship.
This program is difficult to locate.
Jack's 2nd PGA came in 1971 with a victory over Billy Casper
by 4 strokes.
1972 Masters Spectator guide which was Jack's 4th Masters win.
Pebble Beach is where Jack claimed his 3rd US Open victory over Bruce
Crampton by 3 strokes.
Jack once again beat Bruce Crampton this time by 4 strokes
to claim his 3rd PGA title.
Jack's 5th Masters Title came in 1975 and this time be beat
Johnny Miller and Tom Weiskopf by 1 stroke.
Bruce Crampton once again came in 2nd to Jack (by 2 strokes) and this was Jack's
4 PGA title.
Jack's 3rd British Open happened once again at St Andrews and
he won by 2 strokes over Ben Crenshaw, Ray Floyd, Tom Kite, and Simon Owen.
Jack's 4th US Open came once again at Baltusrol and he won by
2 strokes over Isao Aoki.
Jack's 5th and Final PGA came at Oak Hill and he beat Andy Bean
by 7 strokes.
Jack's 18th and final Major was of course the 1986 Masters where
he beat Greg Norman and Tom Kite by 1 stroke.
A very nice grouping of signed Masters Badges. These are quite
valuable especially the 1963 badge.
