Golf Legend Jack Nicklaus Tested Positive for COVID-19 Back in March

Jack Nicklaus is opening up about his coronavirus diagnosis.

While appearing on at The Memorial golf tournament on Sunday (July 19) in Dublin, Ohio, the 80-year-old gold legend revealed that he and wife Barbara both tested positive for the virus back in March.

“It didn’t last very long, and we were very, very fortunate, very lucky,” Jack shared during the CBS telecast. “Barbara and I are both of the age, both of us 80 years old, that is an at-risk age. Our hearts go out to the people who did lose their lives and their families. We were just a couple of the lucky ones.”

Jack said that his wife didn’t have any symptoms, while he had a sore throat and a cough. Jack and his wife were at their home in North Palm Beach, Florida from March 13 “until we were done with it” on about April 20.

A lot of celebrities, athletes, and public figures have tested positive for coronavirus throughout the last several months.
