A day after start of Presidents Cup, Nicklaus will drop ceremonial first puck for Blue Jackets

COLUMBUS, Ohio - After officially opening the Presidents Cup next week at Muirfield Village, Jack Nicklaus will help open the Columbus Blue Jackets' season.

Nicklaus, winner of 73 official PGA Tour victories and a record 18 major championships, will take part in the ceremonial puck drop prior to the Blue Jackets' season-opener on Oct. 4 against Calgary at Nationwide Arena.

Nicklaus will act as host at the Presidents Cup, pitting a U.S. team featuring Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson against an International side with Adam Scott and Ernie Els, at the course he designed.

Play begins on Oct. 3 in the biennial team competition and runs through Oct. 6.
