Jack Nicklaus posted this great photo on his Instagram account of the first check he ever earned for $33.33.

According to the post Nicklaus finished T50 at the Los Angeles Open, Nicklaus' first as a pro.

Nicklaus would go on to make all 26 cuts in tournaments he entered that year, win the US Open, and make $60,000 in the process.

The joke's really on us, too, because Nicklaus made over $26 million in 2013. And he didn't even play.
