Nicklaus become the fourth with a dominant victory at the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach Golf Links in Pebble Beach. Nicklaus led each round by one stroke before winning by three over Australian Bruce Crampton. Friend and on-course rival Arnold Palmer finished six strokes behind in third place. It was Nicklaus’ 11th major win in his career. He would go on to win seven more majors to give him a record of 18 that may never be broken.
