Jack Nicklaus Sinks 102' Putt to Embarrass Johnny Miller

Follow NextStop Magazine:


Back when they opened The Golf Club at Harbor Shores in 2010, Jack Nicklaus (the course designer) played a round with Tom Watson, Arnold Palmer, and Johnny Miller. When Johnny Miller was left with 102' putt over a few humps and about 8' uphill, he decided his best course of action would be to hit a wedge up to the pin.

Nicklaus had no desire to see a wedge taken to his brand new green, so he took matters into his own hands and decided to show Miller how to hit the putt. The dialog leading up to the putt went like this:

Nicklaus: "No, no, no, no."

Miller: "There's no chance putting it."

JN: "Why, just hit a good putt."

JM: "There's no chance."

JN: "Want me to show you how to putt it?"

JM: "You can't ..."

And that's when Jack walked over and dropped a ball. What happened next was awesome.

Afterwards, according to the Associated Press, Nicklaus called the putt "pure frickin' luck."

If the above video doesn't work, this one shows the putt without the dialog and not from the same angle where you can see how truly ridiculous it was:
