"Going into Sunday's final round, there was a certain level of confidence in Jordan. He showed again that he is battle-tested and mature beyond his 21 years. He now has two major championship victories, six wins, and 27 top-10 finishes, and he is still younger than I was when I won my first tournament at 22."
Nicklaus added, "I have always said that winning breeds winning, and that holds true even at the age of 21. This victory further validates that Jordan is not only one of today's great young players, he has become one of golf's greats -- period. Wow."
