Jack Nicklaus was born in 1940 in Columbus, Ohio, and
maintains a home there and in Florida. Widely regarded as the
greatest golfer of all time, he has achieved a record twenty major
championship victories, consisting of two U.S. Amateurs, six
Masters (also a record), four U.S. Opens, three British Opens, and
five PGA Championships. The winner of more than 100 professional
tournaments around the world, Nicklaus was named Golfer of the
Century in 1988.
Ken Bowden was the editorial director of both Europe's and America's premier golf magazines, and has collaborated with Nicklaus on eleven books. Since first watching Nicklaus compete in 1959, Bowden has witnessed a great many of Jack's achievements first-hand.
