Gary Player survived a trip to the greenside bunker on No. 18 on the tournament's final hole. Arnold Palmer didn't.
Player and Palmer both hit into the greenside bunker on the 18th hole of the final round. Palmer was going for his third win at The Masters, and Player for his first. Player got up-and-down for a par, but Palmer double-bogied for a six and fell one stroke behind.
That exchange gave Player the win at the 1961 Masters, and made the South African the first international golfer to win The Masters.
