Nicklaus, Miller and playing with greatness

Published: Wednesday, June 20 2012 12:00 a.m. MDT

Our take: Utah broadcast legend Steve Brown reflects on one of his favorite golf experiences after reading the autobiography of golf legend and Utah resident Billy Casper. Brown recognizes greatness can be achieved in different ways.

The recent release of Billy Casper's book "The Big Three and Me", a great read, took me back to the summer of 1983, when I had my own brief brush with golf greatness. The opening of Park Meadows golf course was a much-anticipated event. Jack Nicklaus had put his signature touch on the first links-style course in Utah's mountains, and I was to caddy for Johnny Miller as he and Jack played their exhibition to open the track.
