Despite speculation this year that 1997 would end Jack Nicklaus's run of playing consecutive major championships, the Golden Bear flew into Prestwick Airport late on Monday evening, writes Andy Farrell.

Nicklaus, 57, yesterday played a practice round on the course where he made his Open debut in 1962, shooting 80 in the first round and finishing 34th. The three-times winner will be playing in his 36th Open, his 143rd consecutive major as a professional and his 151st in all.
