Two Great Players, One Great Moment at the British Open

The great golfers often define themselves in a grand moment on a grand stage. Bobby Jones completing his 1930 Grand Slam at Merion. Ben Hogan bringing the Oakland Hills “monster” to its knees at the 1951 United States Open. Arnold Palmer whirling his visor after a final-round 65 at the 1960 Open at Cherry Hills. Jack Nicklaus, at 46, shooting a back-nine 30 at the 1986 Masters. Tiger Woods dominating the 2000 Open by 15 strokes at Pebble Beach.
