The Nicklaus family just keeps on piling up the awards.
The latest comes via Jack Nicklaus' grandson, Nick O'Leary, who was named the winner of the Mackey Award for top tight end in college football. O'Leary, who starts for the undefeated and defending national champion Florida State Seminoles, has 47 catches this year for 614 yards and seven touchdowns.
On Thursday, the Instagram account for Nicklaus posted this picture of the Golden Bear with his wife, Barbara, and O'Leary from after the season-opening game against Oklahoma State.
Florida State plays in the inaugural College Football Playoffs when it takes on Oregon in the Rose Bowl on Jan. 1. Imagine there is a good chance Nicklaus will be there, seeing as how he made the trip out to Pasadena, California, last year to watch O'Leary in the title game.
The Nicklaus family gets another shot to add to its already-impressive legacy this weekend. Jack and his son, Jack II, are taking part in the PNC Father Son Challenge, which starts on Friday at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club in Orlando.
