Jack Nicklaus posted a beautiful tribute on Facebook honoring Arnold Palmer's legacy



Only three men have ever won four or more Masters tournaments. 

Jack Nickalus won six, followed by Tiger Woods and Arnold Palmer, who both won four. 

Sunday, golfing legend Arnold Palmer died at the age of 87 and Nicklaus was quick to praise his long-time rival. 

Nicklaus took on Palmer during his prime. Their 1960 U.S. Open match is one that went down in golfing history.

Nicklaus, an amateur, finished second and Palmer shot a 65 to win the tournament.

Over the next three decades, Nicklaus surpassed in wins, but never in importance to the sport. 

The rivals even became friends later on in life. 

After Palmer's death, Nicklaus honored "The King" on Facebook. 

I was shocked to hear that we lost a great friendand that golf lost a great friend.
Jack Nicklaus

Tiger Woods also expressed his condolences after hearing the news.
