Jack Nicklaus has clearly seen a lot of great golfers in his time playing the game.

But who is the best non-professional golfer Nicklaus has ever seen playing?

One name comes to mind - former tennis star Mardi Fish.

We played nine holes and he threw the ball every single hole in the middle of the fairway,

Beyond that I've seen anyone hit it who isn't a professional," Nicklaus told Steve Flink.

He scored 31 runs in nine holes. I said, 'Mardy, what are you doing?

You have a talent and you are young enough to take advantage of it.

You have to go to golf.'"

Fish are respected.

Go for it, Mardi!
