Jack Nicklaus pays glowing tribute to Ryder Cup nemesis Brian Barnes

Jack Nicklaus has led the tributes to Brian Barnes and insisted that”too much” was made of the Scot beating him in 1 day in the 1975 Ryder Cup.
Barnes, who passed away in age 74 following a battle with cancer on Tuesday, won 23 championships as a professional and remains the only player to defend winning back in Royal Portrush 1995 and 1996, the Open title.
But the Scot is best known for his two Ryder Cup singles victories over Nicklaus at Laurel Valley in 1975, following a 4 up &2 victory in the afternoon using a 2&1 triumph at the afternoon over the Golden Bear, who was reigning Masters and PGA winner at the time.
However, Nicklaus explained Barnes as a”tough competitor” and hinted that the two wins amid a significant defeat for Europe weren’t any surprise, because he’d paid a glowing tribute to social media.
The 18-time key winner wrote:”Barbara & I heard by Brian Barnes’ daughter, Didi, her dad & our buddy Brian had lost his battle with cancer passed. Her words, amazing & reassuring, said if she was to lose her father, it had been as close to a”model death” as any loving family could want.
“‘Barnesy’ has been an absolute character. Entertainer as golfer. Was not uncommon to watch him wear long socks with shorts, tee with pipe in his mouth & mark his ball using a can!
“To be truthful, too much was made of Barnesy beating me on Sunday in the 1975 Ryder Cup. Why? Because Brian Barnes was a challenging competitor! Founded in six Ryder Cups, enjoyed success on each side of this pond-before & after he turned 50 and won 20 times!
“Barnesy was straight & long off the tee, and, of course, quick of humor. Yes, we will overlook Barnesy! Barbara and I’d like to thank Didi and family for letting us know of this great loss – for the game and to us, personally – because we deliver our heartfelt thoughts and prayers to all of them.”
Gary Player added:”My sincere condolences to the family and friends of irrepressible Scotsman Brian Barnes. He had a superb career ranging from back to Old Open Championships. You will be missed Barnsy. RIP.”
Lee Westwood was among many professionals to post tributes, including:”Back in 1994, my 1st year on tour I had been sat at a hotel bar once I got asked to play with at the Perrier Four-ball after that year. It was Brian Barnes.
“I immediately jumped at the opportunity. We did not do quite nicely (missed the cut) but it had been one of the most enjoyable weeks I have ever had outside on tour. An excellent golfer and amazing story teller and companion. RIP Brian.”
