Nicklaus Opens Bass Pro Shops Legends Pro-Am With Shotgun Start

We’ve all heard of a shotgun starts in golf tournaments, but only at the Bass Pro Shops Legends tournament is a literal shotgun involved.

Jack Nicklaus kicked off Thursday’s Pro-Am at Big Cedar Lodge with a tee shot, which reportedly came within 3 feet of pin.
