Jack Nicklaus, history's greatest golfer and one of the sport's most iconic figures, whose championship legacy on the course is matched only by his philanthropy off it, will host a golf event on Tuesday, May 17, to benefit Palm Beach Atlantic University.

The second annual A Day with Jack will be held at The Bear's Club, Nicklaus' home club in Jupiter, which has as its centerpiece a world-renowned Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course. The event will include a breakfast and a clinic led by Nicklaus, followed by a tournament and awards luncheon.
Gregory Management Co., a private, family-owned investment vehicle with a diverse portfolio of public and private investments, is the event's premium sponsor.
Joe Gregory, managing partner of Gregory Management Co., and his brother John, provided the necessary multi-million dollar gift to establish the Lloyd L. Gregory School of Pharmacy as part of Palm Beach Atlantic University in West Palm Beach. The Gregory family remains active supporters of the pharmacy school program and mission of the University.
In addition, the University awarded Joe Gregory with its American Free Enterprise Medal in 2008. The medal is given annually to one person who by their knowledge, skill, and understanding of business, exemplifies the best of the American free enterprise system.
Tournament foursome registration is $10,000, and individual player registration is $2,500. For information, please contact the University's Development Office at (561) 803-2011.
