Video: Jack Nicklaus Talking Pete Dye

Jack Nicklaus was on Morning Drive's Architect Week and I learned all sorts of new things about how he got his start with Pete Dye. He shares far more detail than I recall from his books and it's pretty interesting to hear how Dye approached him.

Here is the video:

Wonder how many of those 26 courses in china are signature courses done for a reasonable fee?!

And do I understand him to say that he essentially made Pete?!

Overall I found the Nicklaus the most disappointing segment so far, the fact that he was on remote didn't help. They could have asked him better questions as well, about how his design philosophy has evolved, reaction to criticisms, etc. I wonder if a Nicklaus course will ever host a US Open and if he has hopes for that. Is Muirfield Village his best design and why? Needed someone with the depth of knowledge of Ron Whitten, not Gary W. or Matty G.
