LOOK: U.S. Open honors Arnold Palmer with flag on 18 commemorating 1960 win
In the first U.S. Open after his death, Palmer is getting a lot of love at Erin Hills
ERIN, Wis. -- Arnold Palmer only won a single U.S. Open in his career, but it was a classic. Palmer took the 1960 tournament at Cherry Hills with a 65 in the final round to defeat Jack Nicklaus by two strokes.
On Sunday, Palmer is being honored by the USGA in a number of ways in the first U.S. Open after he passed away last fall. Patrons were given Palmer pins as they came through the gates, and the flag on No. 18 at Erin Hills on Sunday is a silhouette of Palmer's celebration in 1960.
Additionally, the same silhouette was put on the green webbing surrounding the 18th green. It's a great tribute to a giant of the game, and hopefully we'll get as good a final round this year as Palmer gave us in 1960.
