Arnold Palmer wins the 24th Masters Tournament
Arnold Palmer went wire-to-wire to win the 1960 Masters, finishing at 6-under par and one stroke in front of Ken Venturi.
Palmer birdied the final two holes to secure the win, which was his second Masters championship and also the second major of his career. Palmer and the man he beat by one stroke, Venturi, were part of a rules dispute at the 1958 Masters, site of Palmer's first career major. Venturi believed Palmer took an improper drop, and brought the matter up again in his 2004 memoir.
Palmer led after each round, and with the victory completed just the second wire-to-wire win in tournament history to this point.
Jack Nicklaus, playing as an amateur in his second Masters, finished tied for 13th.
Arnold Palmer won his second Green Jacket when he birdied the final two holes Sunday to win the Masters by one stroke. It was the second wire-to-wire victory in Tournament history.
