Jack Nicklaus’ departure from Ohio State was totally unnecessary.
Golf Channel blogger Mercer Baggs wrote a blog last year on the real reason that former Ohio State University golf legend Jack Nicklaus left campus prematurely to pursue his professional career.

Luckily for the Golden Bear, he overcame the lack of a diploma and had a career that is widely considered the greatest in the history of the game.
Perhaps if they knew that he would do a full redesign of the OSU Scarlet course for a mere one dollar, they might reconsider their ridiculous decision.
