Panel To Commemorate Jack Nicklaus’ PGA Championship At BallenIsles

Morell Studios was contracted to create a unique recognition panel to commemorate Jack Nicklaus’ PGA Championship at BallenIsles Country Club in Palm Beach Gardens, FL. The event, held on February 28, 2021, celebrated the 50th anniversary of Jack Nicklaus’ victory at the 1971 PGA Championship held at BallenIsles.

The Morell Studios panel features a 3D sculpture of Jack and Barbara Nicklaus finished in gold. The panel includes gold lettering describing Jack’s wire-to-wire win for his ninth major championship. “We are honored to create this special panel for Jack and Barbara” said Morell Studios owner Jon Clay, “ We’ve had a longstanding relationship with the Nicklaus’ and have provided a variety of products to support their initiatives in The Palm Beaches.”

The recognition panel was hand crafted at Morell’s West Palm Beach, FL studio. The panel features the finest quality cherry wood. It was hand sanded to a smooth finish and stained with the finest quality materials. Morell Studios is committed to creating the highest quality awards and recognition products for the golf industry.
