Artist Pays Tribute to Jack Nicklaus' 18 Major Wins

1972 US Open
Golf and sporting artist Walt Spitzmiller spent eight years painting what he believes is golf’s greatest achievement of the modern era:  Jack Nicklaus’ 18 major championship titles.  In a collection of 18 paintings simply entitled Jack’s Majors, Spitzmiller brilliantly captures a moment from each of Nicklaus’ record-setting major victories in an artistic tribute to the legendary champion who competed over six decades and registered 120 professional tournament wins plus the lifetime Grand Slam.

1986 Masters
One third of Nicklaus’ major championship titles came at the Masters and with this year being the 50th anniversary of the “Golden Bear’s” first win of his unmatched run at Augusta National, Spitzmiller has published Jack’s Majors in a commemorative fine art portfolio book.  The hand-bound and luxuriously crafted collector’s volume, which is limited to 100 editions, is numbered and signed by Jack Nicklaus and the artist and includes 18 giclee art prints (18” x 24”) of the collection, along with accompanying text that recounts highlights of each tournament by award-winning golf author and journalist, Don Wade.

1978 British Open
“I’ve been a great admirer of Jack Nicklaus and it has been a labor of love to paint each of his landmark major championship victories,” said Spitzmiller.  “I am delighted to offer the 18 paintings as a tribute to the world’s greatest golfer and his unique and enduring achievements.  I am especially grateful that Jack is so pleased with the art and that he agreed to sign each of the 100 limited edition Portfolios.”

Walt Spitzmiller is one of the world’s foremost sporting artists who specializes in golf. For many years, Walt’s art regularly illustrated stories in Sports Illustrated and GOLF Magazine, and he was the chief contributing artist to Senior Golfer Magazine, as well as a special contributor to Outdoor Life magazine.  Additionally, Walt’s art may be found in the World Golf Hall of Fame, Baseball Hall of Fame, The Smithsonian Institute, The American Museum of Illustration and the Rodeo Hall of Fame.

Among many other books, Dave Donelson is the author of Weird Golf: 18 tales of fantastic, horrific, scientifically impossible, and morally reprehensible golf
