Chronicling the unforgettable and improbable triumph of Jack Nicklaus in the 1986 Masters, this celebration recounts how the tarnished ";Golden Bear,"; with his eldest son Jackie as his caddy, won the most prestigious golf tournament for the sixth time at the astonishing age of 46. Though he was not a favorite to win--ranked 160th on the PGA Tour money list and six years without a win at a major championship--Nicklaus found redemption in competition and reasserted his golf legacy with an inspiring win that many still regard as the most exciting Masters ever. Hanging on for the first three rounds of the tournament, Nicklaus charged ahead in the final round, securing a heart-pounding and history-making victory. This book is full of details about the crowning achievement of Nicklaus's career, the Masters championship itself, and profiles of some of the finest golf players in the sport at the peak of their careers, such as Seve Ballesteros, Tom Kite, and Greg Norman.

"One for the Ages..Jack Nicklaus and the 1986 Masters" by Tom Clavin. Nicklaus at 46 and supposedly over the hill came back from six holes behind with ten holes remaining on the final round to win the tournament in spectacular fashion much to the delight of the 'patrons' at Augusta. Clavin gives insights into the history of this tournament in a well-written book.
