No. 17, Augusta National GC, fourth round, 1986 Masters
The sun shone bright that Sunday, illuminating the beltless slacks and lank blond hair of Nicklaus, 46, in a battle with younger stars. After a mind-boggling run, the Olden Bear had 11 feet for one more birdie on a green harder to read than the stock market. The double-breaker was for the lead and an even larger legend. Nicklaus was up to the moment. Maybe the best putt ever? Yes sir!
