Jack Nicklaus

Most consider Jack Nicklaus to be the greatest golfer of all time, but he is making even more money now than he ever did roaming the fairway. Nicklaus went on to found a golf course design firm in his retirement, which has designed nearly 400 courses, and he has a variety of other business interests – most tied to the game of golf in some way. Although it has been nearly 30 years since Jack claimed his final major championship, the Golden Bear is as relevant today as ever.
