Jack Nicklaus Is In The Money

Jack Nicklaus' face will appear on a new 5-pound Scottish note that the Royal Bank of Scotland will issue next week. He will be only the third living person, and first non-Royal, to receive this honor.

Like Bobby Jones before him, Nicklaus connected with the Scottish people by approaching golf with humility and reverence for the game that started in their country.

Three of Nicklaus' 20 major championships were British Open titles won in Scotland. The debut of the new currency will coincide with Nicklaus' final appearance at the Open championship next weekend.
