Why did Jack Nicklaus wear yellow on Sundays?

We all know about Tiger Woods and his red shirts on Sunday. It's one of the biggest traditions in the current game of golf, so much that during the Monday finish at Torrey Pines people were confused why he decided to ditch the red on Sunday for the Monday finish (even though it was only the third round). But what about Jack Nicklaus and his Sunday yellow?

We all remember that incredible finish at the 1986 Masters, but do you remember what he was wearing? Golden Bear yellow, and he talked about why he rocked this color to David Feherty on Golf Channel's "Feherty."

It's a cool story, as was the entire interview with one of the greatest in the history of the game.
