VIDEO: Jack & Jackie bond over Pinehurst wins

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.

Michael Campbell and the U.S. Open Trophy

A new clip reminds us why we love 2005 U.S. Open Champion Michael Campbell


I stood there, baking in the sun and wondering just how I could possibly forget to put on sunscreen.

There were no trees near the practice range at the 2013 U.S. Open at Merion. And in the midday sun, with barely a cloud in the sky, not even the range grandstand could offer relief.

Stand, bake, sweat and burn. That’s all I could do.

And wonder.

The player I wanted to talk to was hard at work, certainly sweating more than me. And, even as I stood there with my amateur video camera – the one with the funny little squirrel microphone that Sir Nick Faldo had made fun of – and feeling very much out of place next to the network heavyweights, this guy was struggling more than I was.

A lot more.
