Jack Nicklaus, who was four shots off the lead with four holes left, got an eagle and two birdies in those closing holes to win The Masters Tournament for a record sixth time today with a stunning 7-under-par 65. He beat Greg Norman and Tom Kite by a single shot in the 50th edition of The Masters.

The Golden Bear was 46 years 82 days old, making him the oldest man ever to win a Masters. This was his record-setting SIXTH Green Jacket, raising his major total to 18, a number that nobody in the sport has threatened.  If you were to add his two U.S. Amateur titles in 1959 and1961 Nicklaus would have won twenty majors.

It was a classic golf charge from behind by Nicklaus, who got six birdies and the eagle at No. 15 in his last 10 holes to win with a final total of 9-under-par 279.

    ”This may be as fine a round of golf as I ever played, particularly those last 10 holes,” Nicklaus said. ”I haven’t been this happy in six years.”

Poor Greg Norman… The Shark birdied four of his last five holes and it still wasn’t enough.  Over the course of the final round, five different players held a share of the lead.  It took experience, determination, and a little luck for Nicklaus to triumph one final time at Augusta.
