Tiger Woods turned 40 years old on Dec. 30, a birthday that causes anxiety for a lot of people.
Take it from the great Jack Nicklaus that your life, in fact, is actually just getting started at 40 years old.
Nicklaus sent a birthday tweet to Woods with some encouragement and a great bit of life advice:
Here’s the full text in the link included in Jack’s tweet:
“Happy Birthday @tigerwoods! Just remember that 40 is the new 30. I had one of the greatest years of my life when I turned 40, and so I not only send you best wishes for a Happy Birthday but hope for a terrific year. You have heard me say it before that I know you have a lot of great golf left to play and success to enjoy, and I hope it all begins this year for you. Lastly, I wish you and your family a very Happy New Year.”
Tiger may or may not have a shot to win four more majors and tie Jack for the most all time at 18, but count The Golden Bear among those who hope he’s still gunning for it.
