Golfing legend Jack Nicklaus is preparing for an appearance at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club in Orlando this December. The 74 year old will headline a Hall of Fame field at the annual PNC Father/Son Challenge, alongside his first born son, and former caddie, Jack Nicklaus II. Other Hall of Famers to tee it up in the event will include Vijay Singh, Curtis Strange, and Nick Faldo.

Meanwhile, it’s been announced that Charlie Sifford will join Nicklaus as one of only three golfers ever to receive the United States’ highest civilian honour. Sifford will collect the Presidential Medal of Freedom along with actress Meryl Streep, singer Stevie Wonder, and journalist Tom Brokaw. Tiger Woods took to Twitter to offer his congratulations - Sifford was the first black player to earn a PGA Tour card.

And finally, John Daly is building up his CV once again; already an accomplished professional golfer, course designer and singer & writer of country music, Daly will now try his hand at radio hosting. He joins Sirius XM Radio for a 6-part series in December where he’ll be answering any questions - and has even hinted at an agony aunt role, claiming to be a man who’s been through “pretty much everything”.

Well that's all for now, but we'll be back tomorrow. In the meantime feel free to check out our website or get in touch with us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Bye for now.
