Jack Nicklaus will be featured on a 5-pound ($9) note to be issued by the Royal Bank of Scotland to commemorate his last appearance as a professional golfer in the British Open at St. Andrews, the Washington Post reported.
Royal Bank, which sponsors Nicklaus, will release the note on July 12, two days before the tournament. No living person other than a member of the British Royal Family has ever appeared on a Scottish or English banknote.
"That's pretty special," Nicklaus said Thursday. "The tribute that RBS has done for me is unbelievable and one I have a hard time fathoming."
Nicklaus will play his 38th and last British Open at the venue where he won two of his three titles, in 1970 and 1978. He has said it's likely the last tournament of his career.

That's really unbeleivable. When I read the title, I said "NAAAAAAAHHHHH, It's gotta be a lame joke"
No chit. Congrats I guess to the Golden Bear.
