Jack Nicklaus remains a big booming drive ahead of other contenders as the greatest golfer that ever lived. With 18 Majors in his bag, he's still four ahead of Tiger Woods who nows appears unlikely to match or overtake him. The Golden Bear played in 100 Majors, won 18, came second 19 ties and finished in the the top three on 45 occasions. How's them cookies? Emerging hopefuls such as Jason Day, Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth are still at the base camp and face a long climb to reach Nicklaus atop the mountain.
