COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Jack Nicklaus believes that Tiger Woods got the proper ruling at the Masters.

On the other hand, he says that hundreds of other players should get slow-play penalties if 14-year-old Chinese phenom Guan Tianlang did.

Nicklaus spoke to those and many other golf-related topics Wednesday at a luncheon celebrating his support and that of his Memorial Tournament for Nationwide Children's Hospital. The event took place at Ohio State's student union, just a block or so from where his father's drugstore used to be and across the street from where Nicklaus lived as a kid.

The winner of 18 major professional championships also addressed anchored putters and the upcoming Memorial Tournament and Presidents Cup, both to be played at the Nicklaus-designed Muirfield Village.
