Jack Nicklaus shoots even par at Augusta, beats his age by four shots

Six-time Masters champion Jack Nicklaus may not have the same length off the tee at the age of 76, but he still knows every nuance of each green at Augusta National. During a round at Augusta earlier this month, Nicklaus carded an even-par score of 72 and joked that the stellar round is going to screw up his handicap.

Via PGA.com:

"I keep ruining my handicap. I keep shooting good scores. ... That's going to take me down to a 1 or a 2. I was very upset. I'll lose a lot of money on that."

Nicklaus said he was playing off the front tees, but it's still an impressive accomplishment. He delivered an incredible moment at the Par-3 contest last year before the 2015 Masters, hitting a hole-in-one on the fourth hole.
