He was never over a weak 5ft10 in his prime. The same height as his rival, Arnold Palmer.

Saw another quote from 1989, he said "I'm a full 5-foot-11 right when I get out of bed".

Jack is probably only 5 seven nowadays.
Editor Rob says on 4/Jun/13
He said recently "I'm about 5-8 now; I shrunk 4 inches. But they used to call me Big Jack. I was anywhere but big by the standard of the guys today"

Correction to my previous comment, i meant to say "unlike wrestlers,basketball players, and football players."

Golfers are not known for inflating their heights like wrestlers, basketball players, and even football players. That said, i don't think the "Golden Bear" was 5'11 3/4". I've been a fan of golf since the late 70's, and i can remember Nicklaus always being listed at 5'11". It could be that the 5'11 3/4" listing was with shoes??

He was never 5' 11" 3/4. I stood next to him 40 years ago and he was 5' 9.5".

Jack's definitely shrunk in his old age. I saw him in the 70s at various golf tournaments and estimated his height at 5'9.5 or 5'10 max. I was watching TV today he was standing next to Romney on stage at a campaign event, the two were alone shaking hands, Jack was at least 7 inches shorter.
