Jack Nicklaus taking part in Throwback Thursdays
Jack Nicklaus sent out an old family photo in taking part in Instagram's Throwback Thursdays
One of the most popular social media platforms today is Instagram - and one of the more popular uses of the photo sharing site is "Throwback Thursdays", often hashtagged as #TBT.
The tag is used to denote older photos that were taken in years past, long before social media was available to share some of the more compelling images of each user. It has become both popular to share old photos and of course, to peek in on what others are sharing.
Even golf legend Jack Nicklaus is taking part - and he's doing it by sending out not older photos of his numerous golf wins...but rather, more personal photos including the one above where he and his sons are enjoying a little father-sons time together learning the game. It's great to see some of golf's icons embracing new technologies and social platforms.
Nicklaus recently partnered with the PGA of America to ask fans to "Pick the Hole Location" for the Sunday round of the PGA Championship. It was a huge success - in no small part to Nicklaus sending out a YouTube video
of him picking the hole location he would prefer. You can see more of Nicklaus' photos (old and new) at his Instagram account.
