VIDEO: 94-Year-Old Golf Legend Jackie Burke Jr. on 'Feherty'



ABOVE AND BELOW ARE CLIPS of Jackie Burke Jr., who was on 'Feherty' this past week. Can you believe this man is 94?

In the above sequence, Burke talks about the golf swing and hits a few balls. Below, he tells David Feherty about playing the tour in the 1950s when everyone held a club pro job. (There was very little money on the circuit.) If you did well at tournaments, you could get your name in the New York Times, Burke explained. Lessons would then pick up and increase your earnings.

Burke won 16 times on the PGA Tour, including the Masters and PGA Championship in 1956. He was also a Ryder Cup player (7-1-0) and captain.
