THE MOMENT: SCORECARD INCIDENT
Player struggled for much of the back nine but closed with three pars to finish with 74 and 280 total.
Palmer came to the 18th hole needing only a par to edge Player.
It wasn't to be. His approach shot found the bunker on the right side of the green, and he bladed his third shot across the green. After using a putter to get the ball on the green, Palmer needed to sink his 15-foot putt for bogey to force a playoff. The putt missed, and the diminutive Player had his first triumph at Augusta National.
