    EDITOR'S NOTE: Jack Nicklaus had never trailed in any round on his way to winning the Masters and U.S. Open in 1972, and the British Open was played that year at Muirfield, where Nicklaus had won his first claret jug six years earlier. He woke up Monday morning of Open week with a stiff neck, which restricted his swing. Playing cautiously, he stayed in range of the leaders until Lee Trevino pulled away to a five-shot lead in the third round.
