|DEC ||1969 -- Palmer makes a vaunted charge with a final round 7-under par 65 to win the Danny Thomas Golf Tournament and $25,000. Gay Brewer, who led for the first three rounds, says, "As long as I didn't win, I'm glad to see Arnie win it. I really didn't think he had a chance to catch me, although I did respect him." The win gives Palmer back-to-back tour victories following his surprising Thanksgiving Day win at Harbor Town and erases any doubts that his previous victory was a fluke. "This thing, this winning, means everything to me," he says. "Getting it going again is probably the thing I wanted most in my life. I knew it was going to happen, that I would play well again, but I didn't know how successfully. So far, so good." |
