At ten years old, I wondered if I could ever be like that.” —Tiger Woods “We knew when Jack was getting ready that if he could do something magical on 17, he was going to be in good shape. We went elsewhere in the telecast, and I remember thinking, don’t get in the way of this.” —CBS announcer Verne Lundquist, who made the call on the 17th hole “Jack, I think it was fantastic, congratulations.

Meet the Author

John Boyette is the sports editor at the Augusta Chronicle. He has covered twenty-three Masters® Tournaments and has directed the Augusta Chronicle’s award-winning coverage of the tournament since 2001. As a twenty-year-old junior at the University of South Carolina working part time for his hometown newspaper, the Aiken Standard, he was offered a chance to help cover the 1986 Masters® Tournament. With no specific assignment, and being a fan of Jack Nicklaus, he decided to follow him exclusively for Sunday’s final round. The result was an afternoon he will never forget. He won a statewide award the next year for his recounting of Nicklaus’s win, and his journalism career was launched. He lives in Aiken, South Carolina, with his wife, Kathy.
