NEW SERIES: WHAT I THINK NOW


Some 35 years ago, when I was in my playing prime, I collaborated with the editors of Golf Digest on a series called "Jack Nicklaus' Lesson Tee." I've been told that those pastel-colored pages influenced a generation of golfers, which is very flattering. Now the editors have asked me to bring the series up to date by re-examining the content, written with Ken Bowden, and using the original art, created by Jim McQueen. Much of it is still valid, but as the game has changed with new equipment, modern courses and stronger players, some of my ideas have also changed. Here's what I wrote in the '70s, followed by my thoughts today.
