Video: More From The Nicklaus Museum

More from the Nicklaus Museum. Parts 1 and 2 are here.

Part 3 is the famed one-iron from 1972 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach and 1967 U.S. Open at Baltusol with insights from curator Steve Auch.



My favorite segment is part 4, the "White Fang" putter painted by Barbara, gripped by Deane Beman (with a now illegal golf pencil insert), then it disappeared, and then it was recovered after someone brought it to a birthday party for one of the Nicklaus children.



Part 5 looks into the museum's Masters display,
including his 1975 shirt and the story behind the 1986 putter.

These were great, Geoff. Thanks for posting them.
Looks like an elegant space. It'll be a must see if I'm ever in the neighbourhood.

Funny that the masters putter is missing.
