Fan Appeal

Late on Tuesday afternoon, April 6th 1999, a golf buggy pulls up at the 12th tee on Amen Corner at Augusta National. Off steps living legend Jack Nicklaus, who having just had hip replacement surgery, was driving around before the Champions Dinner to see the changes made to the course around Amen Corner. He asks one of the players, busy with a practise round, if he could borrow a club and ball – takes a 5 iron and after a few warm up swings, tees up the ball and elegantly dispatches the ball to land softly on “Golden Bell’s” green. A standing ovation follows by the few patrons still on the course and photographing Amen Corner.

Why are some sports stars so adored?

Nic Cummins, fondly referred to as the "Honey Badger", has become a crowd favourite in the Western Force and Australian Wallabies rugby teams. So much that blonde curly wig sales have gone through the roof in Perth with fans proudly adorning their wigs with some tape on match day.

Sadly, due to family circumstances Nic is moving to play his rugby next season in Japan – all the best Nic – thanks for the memories!
