In his mind, the script already has been written. Jim Nantz’s broadcast career will be bracketed by the Masters.
Part One is already in the books. In 1986, at age 26, Nantz—just a few years removed from being a dreamy-eyed college kid at Houston—was tabbed by legendary television director Frank Chirkinian to work his first Masters.
