The Honorary Starters of the 2021 Masters Tournament in Augusta, Georgia, are Larry Elder, Gary Player, and Jack Nicklaus. They teed off today to begin the Masters.
The video below of Trump supporter Jack Nicklaus and the other two Honorary Starters is a display of just how well the Masters tournament embraces tradition, especially the Senior golfers who return each year. Jack Nicklaus is a true legend who has won six Masters tournaments over the years. He’s a great friend and supporter of President Trump (see below) and warned Americans last October not to make America a Socialist country by electing Biden (see below).
Even though the cancel culture tried to get the tournament moved from Georgia, it’s moving forward because the tournament powers-that-be refused to cave to the demands.
The Chairman of the Masters Fred Ridley spoke about the demands to move the Masters from Augusta:
Jack Nicklaus stepped up to endorse President Trump and had great things to say about their friendship over the years:
Legendary golfer Jack Nicklaus released a statement (see below) in October of 2020 endorsing President Trump for re-election.
He warned against evolving into a Socialist America.
Nicklaus tweeted out the statement telling voters to give President Trump four more years:
“Get out and vote. I did!”

President Trump and Jack Nicklaus have gotten to know each other over the years through golf and business. Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus have both spoken out on their support for the president in past interviews:
TIGER WOODS was asked some leading questions by reporters trying to corner him to make a comment on President Trump, but he dodged with a great answer:
“Well, he’s the President of the United States. You have to respect the office. And no matter who is in the office, you may like, dislike the personality or the politics, but we all must respect the office.”
The reporter had asked if Woods would comment on the “special relationship” he has with President Trump. He probably wasn’t expecting the answer he got! The left went nuts after Woods’ comments. ESPN anchor Max Kellerman went berserk on Tiger Woods for saying he respected the office of the president. Kellerman claimed the comments were “thoughtless.”
Tiger Woods has known President Trump for a number of years and had this to say:
“Well, I’ve known Donald for a number of years. We’ve played golf together. We’ve had dinner together. I’ve known him pre-presidency and obviously during his presidency.”

Nicklaus expressed his support for Tiger:
“No matter who’s president…whether it was Barack Obama or Donald Trump. I think you respect the office, and I’m much in Tiger’s camp on that.”
Jack Nicklaus is a Trump supporter who said during the 2016 election that Trump was “awakening the country.”
FROM MAY 2016:
What’s not to love about this? One of the greatest pro golfers ever is on the Trump Train! Jack Nicklaus knows Donald Trump and had this to say about him: “Actually, Donald’s terrific.”
In an interview with Jim Axelrod, eighteen-time major winner Jack Nicklaus said he is supporting Donald Trump for President.

“Actually, Donald’s terrific. I’ve done several things with Donald. Golf courses. And he has absolutely treated me great.”
