One stroke separated the three leaders of the 1960 U.S. Open as they went into the final two holes. Arnold Palmer, who had overcome a seven-stroke deficit in the fourth round, won the championship by two strokes, beating both Ben Hogan and a young amateur named Jack Nicklaus. This remarkable come-from-behind achievement, which still stands as the greatest final-round comeback at the Open, signaled the end of an era and the beginning of modern-day golf and set the futures of all three men. This book recounts that fateful Open from the 8:00 a.m. first-round tee-off to the finish, bringing alive a near-mythic moment in modern golf. Along for the journey are some of the greatest players of the day: Sam Snead, Gary Player, Ken Venturi, Tommy Bolt, Billy Casper, Julius Boros, Bob Rosburg, Dow Finsterwald, Gene ?The Machine? Littler, and Art Wall.
