After winning the Spanish Memorial Tournament in Ohio, Jack Nicholas welcomed the new world number one Jon Rahm with a fistful of boils.
The meeting took place just hours after the publication of Golf Great Nicholas. At the onset of the epidemic, he tested positive for the coronavirus.
Earlier this year, Nicholas and his wife, Barbara, turned 60 a month apart.
He said his wife had no Kavid-19 symptoms, Nicholas had a sore throat and a cough.
Nicholas said they were at North Palm Beach, Florida, from April 20 to about March 13. “Until we finished it.
“It didn’t last very long, and we were very, very lucky, very lucky,” Nicholas said during the CBS promotion of the annual host event.
“Barbara and I are both old, we are both 70 years old, it’s a risky age.
Our souls lost their lives and lost their families. We were both lucky. “
The memorial has no visitors, and Nicholas’s view is rare this week due to the protocol of returning to the golf course of the PGA Tour amid the epidemic.
Nicholas shared this news when it was late from the weather at the memorial in the final episode.
Seen a few times, he wore a mask and kept his distance.
On Tuesday, Nicholas held a remote press conference and said that whoever wins in memory will shake his hand, the tradition of the tournament he has created is dead.
“If they don’t want to shake my hand, that’s fine, I’ll give them a handful or an elbow baby, but I won’t give them a Kavid-19, so … I won’t put anyone in that position,” he said.
He told CBS again that he would shake hands if he wanted to win, but he would be fine if he did not win.
After a moment of briefing with Rahman, it was a fist barrier.
“I’ve dreamed of that handshake many times,” Rahman said.
“Well, it was a fist drop because of the situation, yet, how many people can say they got a congratulatory fist bump from Jack Nichols?”
