When you ask Jack Nicklaus to share his life’s lessons, he most certainly recounts indelible moments from his decades-long adventure as a professional golfer. But weaved inside his tales of competitive sport are messages that resonate deep with athletes, business leaders, and mission-driven organizations alike.

From visualizing the next great golf course out of an overgrown field to balancing victory and defeat with the pressure to perform, Nicklaus learned in his time on the green what it means to chase your own potential.

In his journey to greatness, Nicklaus knew he couldn’t go it alone – he relied on his family, and their love and support, as inspiration for his great success. After nearly 60 years of marriage to his wife, Barbara, and having raised five children and 22 grandchildren, Nicklaus proves you can still do what you love when you put the people you love first.

On stage, Nicklaus make a powerful case for his core fundamentals of success – preparation, discipline, and graciousness – all the while lighting up the room with his nostalgic and humble view of dreams come true.

Most men work their entire life to retire to play golf. Jack Nicklaus played golf his entire life to retire to work – good work.

In the Golden Bear’s golden years, he and wife Barbara have dedicated their time to helping children and families get access to world-class pediatric healthcare. In 2004, they founded the Nicklaus Children's Health Care Foundation to support this effort. Collaborating with pediatric hospitals across the U.S., their Foundation has gained momentum, and grown into a thriving charity capable of making a real difference for children on a massive scale.

It is their passion and commitment to children that led globally renowned Miami Children’s Hospital to change its name to Nicklaus Children’s Hospital, and in 2017 to rebrand their entire Miami Children’s Health System to Nicklaus Children’s. The system includes 14 outpatient centers spread throughout Florida.

Nicklaus speaks passionately about his family’s charitable efforts, and how they were able to evolve from a life focused on the fundamentals of competitive sport to one driven by a philosophy of philanthropy.
