Home JACK LENDS HIS SUPPORT

For the man who has everything or maybe wants everything this could be just what the doctor ordered! In anticipation of the 30th anniversary of Jack Nicklaus’ 18th Major Championship, Soundwaves Art Foundation has partnered with St. Andrews Legacy to celebrate an iconic moment in golf.

Soundwaves Artword, by TimWakefield, is paired with Robert Highton’s remarkable hand-painted Jack Nicklaus composition. Wakefield, who has collaborated withPink Floyd, Paul McCartney and others, creates artwork by digitally manipulating and coloring soundwaves captured in recorded sound and music.

Wakefield created the piece from the sound of the crowd cheering as Nicklaus watched his putt drop for a birdie on the 17th hole at Augusta National on April 13, 1986. The shot gave him the lead and as most golfers know he went on to win his 18th Major Championship.

Limited editions signed by Wakefield and Nicklaus, along with numbered prints are available along with canvas prints in black floater frames. Proceeds will be directed towards funding for rehabilitation of injured military personnel. As the holiday season quickly approaches now that summer has made way to autumn, this once in a lifetime opportunity is available for only a limited time on a first come, first serve basis.

“Having spent significant time in San Antonio and Washington, DC I now appreciate just how many of the ill and injured have challenges that mean they will struggle on the championship courses in Scotland,” said Graham Proctor, CEO St Andrews Legacy. “I’m sure the most challenged feel excluded, they don’t believe they will ever get to experience St Andrews. In 2016 that will change. Working with St Andrews Links Trust and utilizing the phenomenal practice facilities and the beginner courses adjacent to The Old Course we will host a number of veterans with the greatest challenges who are now learning to play golf. St Andrews Legacy is attempting to cater for all levels at ‘The Home of Golf.’ It is an exciting time.”
