The last time Nicklaus finished four rounds at the Masters and a major was when he finished T-54th at the 2000 Masters.
In 2004, only played twice on the PGA Tour (missed cut at the Masters and T-63rd at The Memorial).
Became the second-oldest player to make a cut on the PGA Tour when he finished T-63rd at The Memorial after a final-round 71, his lowest score on the PGA Tour in two years.
Missed the cut at the Masters, Memorial and British Open in 2005. That year was the last time he played in a Masters, a major and on the PGA Tour and Champions Tour. It was his 45th Masters start, tied with Raymond Floyd and Billy Casper, and behind Doug Ford's 49 starts, Arnold Palmer's 50 starts and Gary Player's 52 Masters starts.
In 2010, joined Arnold Palmer as an Honorary Starter at the Masters. Is scheduled to do it again this year with Gary Player.
