Jack Nicklaus also left his mark designing golf courses.
Nicklaus came out of Ohio State in the early 1960's and soon thereafter became golf's dominant player. This did not sit well with Arnold Palmer's many fans. Arnold was a more aggressive player and had more charisma but nobody could stop Jack Nicklaus from achieving greatness.
