Jack Nicklaus in his prime was always considered to be a "money" golfer and now the Royal Bank of Scotland is going to be issuing 2 million 5 pound notes with Jack Nicklaus on them.

    Nicklaus to Become First Living Non-Royal on U.K. Banknote

    June 30 (Bloomberg) -- Jack Nicklaus will feature on a 5- pound ($9) note to be issued by Royal Bank of Scotland Group Plc to commemorate his last appearance as a professional golfer in the British Open at St. Andrews.

    The U.K.'s second-largest bank by assets, which sponsors the 65-year-old, will release the note on July 12, two days before the 134th Open Championship. 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 on a conference call today. "The tribute that RBS has done for me is unbelievable and one I have a hard time fathoming."


It raises an interesting question, which "money" athletes from other sports would you put on some cash ? Would it be Tom Brady or Joe Montana on the Football $$$ ? Would you mint Michael Jordan Basketball $$$'s or would Robert Horry be more appropriate ? Is Wayne Gretzky a lock for the Hockey Loonie ?

Football: Gotta go w/ Joe, just 'cause he's older. Brady's done all he can to deserve that, though. (Honorable mention to Vince Lombardi...you can just see him chewing out all other bills in your wallet: "WHAT THE HELL'S GOIN' ON IN HERE!?")

Basketball: Horry, schmorry. Jordan all the way. (Massachusetts responds by bringing back the Continental currency of the 1770s, this time w/ Larry Bird.)

Baseball: Duh...A-Rod, with Steinbrenner on the back side.

Hockey: Gary Bettman, with a big ol' "STRIKE" watermark corner-to-corner across the whole bill.

Soccer: Mom. (No, not my mom...soccer mom!)

Golf: Tiger on the other side of the Nicklaus bill. Hey, at least he'd have found a green then. *ba-dum-bum*
