Jack Nicklaus - What a man! What a career! What a life!

Tony spoke to former Reuters golf correspondent Tony Jimenez to pay tribute to the great Jack Nicklaus on the Golden Bear’s 80th birthday: “What a man! What a career! What a life! I’d like to use this moment to salute Jack. Wow, 80 is a real milestone for him and I don’t know of anybody who’s had a more fulfilled life than he has.

The 2019 Tony Awards

After looking back at the year with former Reuters golf correspondent Tony Jimenez, Tony came up with his own version of the 2019 ‘Tony Awards’: PLAYER OF THE YEAR “I can’t separate Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods and Jon Rahm. Rory didn’t win a major, which of course he sets out to do every year, but he won four times and his consistency throughout the season was something to behold. Rahm also played some terrific golf. He was identified as a precocious talent a few years ago and there’s a lot of expectation on him when he plays. But I think he proved he’s the real deal in... Read more...
