At Bellerive Country Club, Gary Player was poised to complete the career grand slam. However, a double-bogey on the 16th hole of his final round, combined with a birdie from Kel Nagle, dissolved his three-stroke cushion and forced a Monday playoff. Undeterred, Player edged Nagle the next day to capture the title. For daily updates from the United States Golf Association, please visit usga.org.
