DUBLIN, Ohio – As is an annual occurrence, Jack Nicklaus met with the media Tuesday ahead of the start of The Memorial he hosts at Muirfield Village Golf Club, which he built, and did what he always does – talk at length on a variety of subjects for over more than one hour.
One subject, however, he only touched on briefly – a complaint filed against him on May 13 by Nicklaus Companies which alleges tortious interference, breach of contract and breach of fiduciary duty.
Nicklaus, 82, said in a statement two weeks ago that the claims by Howard Milstein, executive chairman of the Nicklaus Companies who also oversees Golf Magazine and Golf.com., were untrue.
“I’m not worried about that,” Nicklaus said. “I feel very comfortable with where we are. And I’m here to talk about The Memorial Tournament and not that.”
