The Golden Bear, Jack Nicklaus

Join us today in raising a glass of your favorite beverage in honor of the Ohio State living legend Jack Nicklaus. The Golden Bear, and winner of the 1986 Masters Tournament — which some argue to be the greatest sporting event in history — turns 74-years-young today. He attended Ohio State from 1957 to 1961 but ultimately fell a few credits short of graduating. (Like a true boss, Ohio State awarded him an honorary doctrate in 1972.)

So, we salute you, Jack. You have always been a great ambassador for Ohio State with your quiet dignity and excessive championship-winning. May you celebrate another 500 birthdays, good sir.
