For the second time in the 10-year history of the PGA Championship as a stroke play tournament, the winner was decided in a playoff. Played in the thin, mile-high Colorado atmosphere, two lowland neighbors from Texas, Don January and Don Massengale, adapted nicely to the rarefied air to come down to the wire deadlocked at 281. Even though January had lost the 1961 PGA Championship in a playoff, he proved the steadier of the two in an 18-hole playoff, with a 3-under-par 69 to Massengale’s 71.
