Golf legend Jack Nicklaus revealed during the Memorial tournament on Sunday that he tested positive for COVID-19 earlier in 2020.

Nicklaus told reporters (via AP/Fox 8) that he and his wife both contracted the virus before spending over a month quarantined at their home. Despite being at particularly high-risk for the effects of the virus due to his age, Nicklaus says he had a cough and sore throat and hunkered down “until we were done with it.”

“It didn’t last very long, and we were very, very fortunate, very lucky,” Nicklaus said. “Barbara and I are both of the age, both of us 80 years old, that is an at-risk age. Our hearts go out to the people who did lose their lives and their families. We were just a couple of the lucky ones.”
