'Golden Bear' Jack Nicklaus to get Congressional Medal

Washington, Fri, 20 Apr 2012 ANI

Washington, April 20 (ANI): The U.S. House of Representatives has voted to award the U.S. Congressional Gold Medal to golf legend Jack Nicklaus, the winner of a record 18 major championship titles.

The 72-year-old American, whose last major title came at age 46 when he won his record sixth Masters, was honoured for both his golf and humanitarian work.

The Nicklaus Children's Health Care Foundation has raised over 12 million dollars for pediatric health care projects, reports.

US Senate members will vote on the measure for Nicklaus, nicknamed the "Golden Bear", to receive the Gold Medal.

Fellow US golf icon Arnold Palmer, 82, was awarded the gold medal by lawmakers in 2009.

Nicklaus and Palmer joined retired South African star Gary Player as honorary starters at the 76th Masters earlier this month.

The award from US lawmakers goes to athletes, artists, public servants and military leaders. (ANI)
