The 1960 U.S. Open Golf Championship played in Denver, Colorado remains perhaps the most dramatic, competitive, and passionate of all Open championships. In 1960 the young lions of the game were eager to reach the top tier occupied by venerable players such as Ben Hogan and Sam Snead. In this Open only a single stroke separated the three leaders: Ben Hogan, Arnold Palmer, and a young but talented amateur named Jack Nicklaus on the final two holes.
