Even with six Masters titles to his name, not even Jack Nicklaus is able to get through security at Augusta National in Georgia without showing proof of identification.


On Tuesday, 76-year-old Nicklaus posted a video of his trip down Magnolia Lane at the beginning of Masters week. While the people at the gate knew who Nicklaus was, a security guard down the road did not recognize the golf legend—so he asked for ID.

The security guard appeared to be a little embarrassed once he realized who Nicklaus was, but the golfing legend respected the fact that the security guard was just doing his job. No harm done.

Note: The humorous encounter comes with about 1:30 remaining in the video.
