Julius Boros survived the wilting midsummer Texas heat and the treacherous 18th hole at Pecan Valley Country Club to snatch the 50th PGA Championship from Arnold Palmer and Bob Charles. Palmer, frustrated again in his quest for a PGA title, made a magnificent par at the final hole for a 282, after watching several good birdie putts slide past the cup in the closing round. But Boros pitched a long chip within two feet of the pin for a par, becoming, at the age of 48, the oldest winner in PGA Championship history.
