The even WEIRDER stat about Tiger Woods following Jack Nicklaus at The Masters

Brandel Chamblee revealed a bizarre stat linking Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus ahead of this week's Masters Tournament at Augusta National. Only after 36 holes, there is an even weirder statistic tying both legends of the game together! 

In case you missed it, Chamblee posted the following earlier this week:

 

 

"Jack Nicklaus won his 6th Masters in 1986, 23 years after his first," tweeted Chamblee.

"He was ranked 33rd in the world going into that week. If Tiger wins this week, it will be his 6th Masters, 23 years after his first. He is ranked 33rd in the world going into this week."

Okay, a very interesting stat you might think. Now let's take it up a notch with this beauty, which we first saw posted by Golf Now on Saturday afternoon. 

 

 

 

 

 

After second rounds of this week's Masters, defending champion Woods is at 5-under par and four strokes off the pace in a tie for 17th.

Yup, that's right, that is the exact same position Nicklaus found himself in after two rounds at the 1986 Masters - an event where Nicklaus went on to capture a record 18th major title and his sixth Masters. 

At the age of 46 years old, Nicklaus remains the oldest winner of The Masters. 

If Woods finds himself tied ninth heading into the final round, then the stats do become even more eery.
