Synopsis

Was there ever a year in golf like 1960? It was the year that the sport and its vivid personalities exploded on the consciousness of the nation, when the past, present, and future of the game collided. Television, still a new medium, provided a fresh window to this fascinating show and enabled this rich mans sport to win over millions of new fans. Here was Arnold Palmer, the working mans hero, sweating, chainsmoking, shirttail flying, winning, it seemed, every tournament with a lastsecond charge; grim Ben Hogan, Arnies opposite, the greatest player of the 50s, a perfectionist battling the twin demons of age and nerves; and, making his debut in the big time, a chunky, crewcut college kid who seemed to have the makings of a champion20yearold Jack Nicklaus.
