Fox will air an hour-long documentary titled “Nicklaus: The Making of Champion” at noon Sunday prior to the NFC Championship Game.
The film, produced by the USGA and Ross Greenburg Productions, features interviews with golf icons Arnold Palmer and Gary Player. It also includes never-before-seen home movies from the Nicklaus family collection.
Until then, we have a treat for you. A new documentary we’re producing features footage of Jack’s iconic 1959 North & South Amateur win at Pinehurst. You know, the one that launched his championship career.
Jack went on to win his first national championship that year at the. U.S. Amateur. You know the rest.
The BEST part of our video is the footage from son Jackie’s North & South Amateur win in 1985. Jack followed him throughout the tournament, offering advice and support.
It’s a really wonderful look at a special father-son relationship.
