AUGUSTA, Ga. -- This morning, a feature I wrote ran on "SportsCenter." It's the story of a special relationship between Jack Nicklaus and a boy named Craig Smith, and how that bond is one of the great untold stories of the 1986 Masters. I hope you like it. One quick personal note, since part of what I'm trying to do this week is show you behind-the-scenes moments. In the television pieces I've done, I've learned that the producers do the lion's share of the work, and they often don't get public credit. So, a big thanks to producer Tina Cerbone, who deserves much of the credit for this piece.
