Gary Nicklaus, 15, aced the ninth hole as the caddie for his grandfather Jack Nicklaus.
Known as GT, the younger Nicklaus scored his first-ever ace and had his grandfather in tears in a wild celebration. The 78-year-old Nicklaus finished tied for fourth at 4-under par. Their playing partner was 82-year-old Gary Player who finished tied for 10th.
Nicklaus, the six-time Masters champion, said he ranks the hole-in-one by his grandson as his number one golf memory.
