SOME HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE JACK NICKLAUS "SEA BEAR" MUSEUM ARTIFACTS
The Jack Nicklaus “Sea Bear” Museum is the only one of its kind and it houses 36 unique pieces hand-selected by Jack and Barbara Nicklaus from the Jack Nicklaus Museum in Columbus, Ohio, as well as items personally donated from their home collection. Some of these include:
The main showcase piece of the museum measures 50 by 36 inches and is placed in the main saloon. Created by artist Pat Morell, the piece is made of cherry, and features bas-reliefs of all the major championship trophies, including the US Amateur. Sterling silver plates list the years, venues and scores associated with each victory. A centre plaque features an overview of Jack’s illustrious career, printed on parchment paper.
The White Fang was the name given to the Acushnet John Reuter Jr. “Bulls Eye” STD M 5 S putter that Jack Nicklaus began to use in June 1967 and played a major role in his victory at the 1967 US Open. Other victories in 1967 using White Fang include the Western Open, World Series of Golf, Westchester Classic, Sahara invitational and the World Cup–Team Champions with Arnold Palmer.
The MacGregor Tommy Armour SS1 “Diamond Back” irons (1 through PW) were used by Jack Nicklaus to win five professional major championships and one U.S. Amateur (1961) from 1961 to 1966.
The original 1967 MacGregor “VIP by Nicklaus” irons were used by Jack Nicklaus to win seven major championships from 1967 to 1975.
Upon being first honoured as “Golfer of the Century” in 1988, the classic golf swing of Jack Nicklaus was subsequently immortalized by the renowned Franklin Mint, with the exclusive creation of “the Full Swing,” an original sculpture perfectly depicting the five stages of the Golden Bear’s famed driving motion.
The JNP Classic 1-Iron is among Jack's favorite 1-iron shots: On the closing hole of the 1967 US Open, he hit a 1-iron from 238 yards, uphill and into the wind, that landed 22 feet from the cup and resulted in a birdie and the US Open scoring record; the 1-iron from 219 yards that hit the flag on the 17th hole at Pebble Beach during his 1972 US Open win.
In 2007, Jack Nicklaus served as United States Captain for The Presidents Cup at Royal Montreal Golf Club in Montreal, Canada. It was the fourth time the GoldenBear served as captain for these biennial matches. The US victory made Jack Nicklaus unbeaten in his final three stints as Captain. This Presidents Cup flag is signed by all 24 players, as well as Jack and International Captain Gary Player.
