Golf legend Jack Nicklaus has just revealed both he and his wife had coronavirus.

During an interview with Jim Nantz on CBS over the broadcast of the last day of the Memorial on Sunday, the 18 time champion announced he and his wife Barbara survived a bout of COVID-19 from March to April.

“We were very very fortunate, we were very lucky,” Nicklaus said. Nicklaus and his wife are both 80 years old.

“Barbara was asymptomatic, I had a sore throat and a cough that didn’t last very long,” Nicklaus said.
