A sentimental longing or wistful affection for the past, typically for a period or place with happy personal associations.
"I was overcome with acute nostalgia for my days in college"
"a nostalgia for traditional values"
“The times you lived through, the people you shared those times with — nothing brings it all to life like an old mix tape. It does a better job of storing up memories than actual brain tissue can do. Every mix tape tells a story. Put them together, and they can add up to the story of a life.” ― Rob Sheffield
“There are a few moments in your life when you are truly and completely happy, and you remember to give thanks. Even as it happens you are nostalgic for the moment, you are tucking it away in your scrapbook.” ― David Benioff
“I felt a pang -- a strange and inexplicable pang that I had never felt before.
It was homesickness.
Now, even more than I had earlier when I'd first glimpsed it, I longed to be transported into that quiet little landscape, to walk up the path, to take a key from my pocket and open the cottage door, to sit down by the fireplace, to wrap my arms around myself, and to stay there forever and ever.” ― Alan Bradley,
Nostalgia is a file that removes the rough edges from the good old days. Doug Larson

On a cold blustery January day I had the opportunity to spend a couple hours touring the Jack Nicklaus Museum located in the heart of The Ohio State University sports complex in Jack's hometown of Columbus, Ohio.
2355 Olentangy River Road Columbus, Ohio 43210
and the tour begins.With The Legends of Golf….
Nicklaus was born in the Columbus, Ohio , the son of pharmacist Charlie Nicklaus (who ran several sites named Nicklaus Drug Store) and his wife Helen.. Jack Nicklaus is a “family man” whether as a son,husband,or father.
“My ability to concentrate and work toward that goal has been my greatest asset.” J.N.
“Through the years of experience I have found that air offers less resistance than dirt.” J.N.
“Concentration is a fine antidote to anxiety.” J.N.
“A kid grows up a lot faster on the golf course. Golf teaches you how to behave.” J.N.
Unlike the other major championships, the Masters is held each year at the same location, Augusta National Golf Club
“I'm a firm believer that in the theory that people only do their best at things they truly enjoy. It is difficult to excel at something you don't enjoy.” J.N…. I really like this quote…..
The PGA Championship (sometimes, especially outside of the United States referred to as the U.S. PGA Championship or U.S. PGA) is an annual golf tournament conducted by the Professional Golfers Association of America. It is one of the four major championships in professional golf.
“The game is meant to be fun.” J.N. and most golfers…
F.Y.I.:: The U.S. Open scheduled so, if there are no weather delays, the final round is played on the third Sunday of June, which is Father's Day.
“Success depends almost entirely on how effectively you learn to manage the game's two ultimate adversaries: the course and yourself.” J.N
“Some places it could have been worse. Some places it could have been better. Tomorrow is another day.” J.N.
Golf course design:: Nicklaus is in partnership with his four sons and his son-in-law through their company, Nicklaus Design. The company had 299 courses open for play at the end of 2005, which was nearly 1% of all the courses in the world .. WIKI
The tour of the museum ends with an 18 minute presentation in the theater (narrated by Sean Connery). I found the presentation enjoyable as I did the other presentations in the different rooms.
Three screens all with a different image…
