Replay

The record book says Goalby, 39, edged Roberto De Vicenzo by a shot, but the two should have gone to a playoff. After completing his final round, De Vicenzo signed for a wrong score. He shot a 65 with a birdie 3 at 17, but his playing partner, Tommy Aaron, mistakenly put him down for a 4 on the hole, and a 66. Thus, De Vicenzo had to accept that score.

Postmortem

Goalby never contended in another major, but he did win three more Tour events, bringing his career total to 10. He and De Vicenzo have remained friends.

Postmortem

Archer had three other top 10s in majors, and he won 12 Tour events and 19 Champions tour titles over his long career.
