Jack Nicklaus shoots six under his age during Ernie Els' charity tournament
Legendary golfer Jack Nicklaus shot a stunning six under his age in his latest outing.
Playing in Ernie Els' Autism Pro-Am event at Old Palm Golf Club in Florida, the 18-time major winner shot a one-under par 71 over 18 holes, which is six shots less than his age, at 77.

On a week where golf remembered a great who is no longer with us, with the first Arnold Palmer Invitational event taking place since Palmer's death last year, Nicklaus gave a reminder of the talent on display in yesteryear.
Just when I was getting my handicap up there, I had to go and not only shoot just my second round under 80 since November, but better my age by six shots with a 71. But seriously, it was a great day for golf and for raising needed money for the incredible work that my friends Ernie and Liezl Els do to bring attention and support for the estimated 1 in 68 children in the U.S. with autism. I’m delighted I could join the big-hearted amateurs and pros in the 9th annual Els for Autism Pro-Am. I just don’t recall getting a trophy this big for any second-place finishes in my career! #ernieels #elsforautism #autism #autismawareness
Last year, Nicklaus shot an even par 72 at Augusta National, reminding people of his talent, so it should be no surprise that he would do it again.
