Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player Get 2014 Masters Underway
Darron Cummings

Ceremonial tee shots are away at Augusta to mark the official opening of the 2014 Masters. Jack Nicklaus won this year's battle of the greats against Arnold Palmer and Gary Player.

All three men hit the fairway, with 18-time major winner Nicklaus last to go. The Golden Bear blasted a drive around 220 yards—past Player's ball.

Palmer, 84, came up short of the pair, but he still planted his ball firmly in the fairway. 

Nicklaus, 74, has won the Masters six times. Player, 78, is a three-time champion, while Palmer won four times in six years between 1958 and 1964.
