WATCH: Jack Nicklaus Brought To Tears After Grandson Sinks Hole-In-One

posted by Greek -

15-year old, Gary Nicklaus (GT as he goes by), came through big time for his grandfather, the legendary Jack Nicklaus. GT was a caddie for his grandfather during the Par 3 Contest which helps kick off the 2018 Masters Tournament. Three days prior to the contest, Jack had asked GT if he would take the last tee shot, which he happily agreed to. 

No pressure there! But just like his grandfather, the teen aced it and scored his very first hole-in-one! Him and his grandfather erupted into celebration and the Jack was brought to tears. 

Despite being a six-time Masters Champion, Jack Nicklaus said watching his grandson sink that hole-in-one is his #1 golf memory. 

"To watch your grandson do that is special."

"For that to happen was unbelievable, it was surreal." 

-Gary Nicklaus

‪Where, Tom Rinaldi, does this moment rank for me among @themasters memories? No. 1 ☝️ What does it mean? Everything. And certainly enough to make this old man cry. @espn @gtn555 @nina_nicklaus #masterspar3
