Jack Burke

by | Jan 19, 2024 | NEWS

Jack Burke, who was the oldest living Masters champion, died Friday morning in Houston. He was 100, just 10 days short of his next birthday. One of golf’s great personalities, Burke mentored hundreds of professional and amateur golfers.
Burke won the Masters and the PGA Championship in 1956 and was named PGA Player of the Year. He was best known for staging what is considered the greatest comeback in Masters history (sorry, Nick Faldo) when he overcame an eight-shot deficit in the final round to beat Ken Venturi.
Burke was elected to the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2000.
