This sorta makes up for all his shitty golf courses.
Jack Nicklaus, the 75-year-old guy who is the Target of golf course design and accounted for more than half my father’s leisure-time wardrobe*, bagged a 139-yard 4th hole Par 3 hole-in-one Wednesday at the Masters Par 3 contest.
By Andrew Pridgen
Nicklaus partook in a threesome with a guy named after iced tea and lemonade and some rapper who calls himself Gary Playa and looks to be the next James Bond.
It was awesome.
Here, as tribute, a second-by-second breakdown of the shot.
:01 — A strange pre-tsunami-water-rushing-backwards-sound overtakes the crowd.
:02 — Or maybe Skrillex is setting up on the fifth hole green.
:03 — The Golden Bear temporarily goes into hibernation while addressing the ball.
:04 — Holy shit…
:05 — that’s a fast backswing old timer.
:06 — Announcer swallows swig of…
:07 — “Jack at number four.”
:08 — Clear sky. Fully struck ball. Can’t lose.
