Golfer Jack Nicklaus didn't choose the thug life, the thug life chose Jack. Or, someone from the subreddit Unexpected Thug Life chose footage of Jack Nicklaus showing fellow golfer Johnny Miller how to nail a 102ft putt as the perfect example of the Unexpected Thug Life meme.
The boss-like behavior from Nicklaus happened back in 2010 when him and Miller were playing a ceremonial round to mark the opening of The Golf Club at Harbor Shores in Benton Harbor, Michigan. Miller thought the only way he could make the shot to the hole was by chipping it.
So swag-master general Nicklaus stepped up and showed Miller how a real pro does it.
Jack Nicklaus, YOLO.
