Summary The first time they met, at an exhibition match in 1967, Tom Watson was a seventeen-year-old high school student and Jack Nicklaus, at twenty-seven, was already the greatest golfer in the world. Though they shared some similarities- they were both Midwestern boys who had learned to play at their fathers' country clubs- they differed in most ways. Nicklaus was known for his skill and confidence; Watson's game was wild and seemingly uncontrollable. While Nicklaus lacked the charm and theatrics of crowd favorites like Arnold Palmer, Watson already possessed and zeal and energy that endeared him to fans. Tom revered Jack; Jack barely knew who was Tom was. Yet their seemingly divergent paths collided over the next twenty years, when they battled against each other again and again for championships, a place at the top of the sport, and the title of greatest living golfer.
