To be honest, Tiger Woods winning the Masters again had me looking again into the guy he's chasing or not chasing for the greatest golfer of all time. Jack Nicklaus as a 58 year old stole the 1998 Masters headlines from the actual winner

We all know the most memorable slam run by Connors in the US Open at 39, despite Edberg winning the slam

What are the other memorable 38+ year oldslam performances in Wimbledon, the French and Australian Open
