Jack Nicklaus’s Memorial Clinic is why Golf is Special

Jack held his players clinic today at the memorial and brought out the likes of Fowler, Schwartzel, Rose and McIlroy to have some fun with the crowd.  Things like this and the Pro-ams every week are what make golf truly special.

Keep in mind that these guys are all playing for millions of dollars starting tomorrow.  I imagine other pro athletes would scoff at the idea of putting on a clinic for eager fans the day before a game.  Not golf.  Some of the biggest names in the game came out just because they wanted to hit golf balls for Jack and the crowd.  That to me is pure joy of the game.

Forget power play golf.  Keep it simple and pure and golf will endure for many generations.  Things like that make me love this sport all the more.
