PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. -- Jack Nicklaus is ready for a golfing first - the Golden Bear will play in a tournament with his four sons.

Nicklaus will play in the BMW Charity Pro-Am at The Cliffs, a Nationwide Tour event May 1-4 in Greenville, S.C.

It will be the first time Nicklaus has played in the same tournament with all of his sons - Jack II, Steve, Gary and Michael.

"Two of my loves are competitive golf and having the chance to play golf with my sons," Nicklaus said. "To be able to combine the two is truly special for me."
