Jack Nicklaus’ Birdie Putt on 17 at the 1986 Masters

This is the putt that gave Jack Nicklaus his first lead in the 1986 Masters. His son Jackie, who was his caddie that week, describes how they read the green in the video below.

Vern Lunquists’ call of this putt is fantastic. A simple, less-is-more approach that conveys the excitement of the moment without overshadowing  the action on the screen.
