Nicklaus to be back for the Memorial

DUBLIN, Ohio -- Jack Nicklaus will play at his Memorial Tournament although he has not fully recovered from hip replacement surgery.

"Although his swing and endurance are not 100 percent, he expects to be ready to go for the Memorial," tournament organizers said Saturday.

Nicklaus had successful total left hip-replacement surgery in January. As part of his rehabilitation, he has been playing 18 holes daily.

His appearance at the tournament, June 3-6, would be his 24th straight. He has won twice.
