Few golf fans would argue with dubbing Jack Nicklaus "Player of the Century." After a nearly four-decade long professional career, Nicklaus stands as golf's all-time money winner with 20 major wins and player-of-the-year status five times.

"The Golden Bear" was noted as a golfing phenomenon from childhood, shooting a 69 at age 13.
