A capsule look at majors played at Oak Hill
Question of the Day
Event: U.S. Open.
Winner: Cary Middlecoff.
Margin: 1 shot.
Recap: Cary Middlecoff won his third and final major championship without ever breaking par in any of the rounds. He went into the final day two shots behind Peter Thomson and shot 70 in the third round to take a one-shot lead over Ben Hogan and Ted Kroll. Middlecoff closed with a 70, and then had to wait to see if it was enough. Hogan was going after a record fifth U.S. Open title. He was tied for the lead when he missed a 30-inch par putt on the 17th hole to slip one shot behind, and he failed to birdie the 18th. Julius Boros had a birdie putt on the 18th to force a playoff, but it rattled the cup and stayed out.
Quote: “Nobody wins the Open. It wins you.” _ Middlecoff.
Event: U.S. Open.
Winner: Lee Trevino.
