60th Anniversary: Golf Digest

Jack Nicklaus leads Golf Digest's 60th anniversary

60th Anniversary: Golf Digest Magazine
We like to say that Jack Nicklaus and Golf Digest started together. Jack began playing golf at age 10 in 1950, the same year the magazine was founded. Young Jack shot a 51 that year for the first nine holes he ever played, and he didn't stop there, accumulating 18 professional major championships. So it's only natural that we now turn to Playing Editor Nicklaus to grace our 60th-anniversary cover and to start a year of celebration.
