1967 British Open
Recap and Scores for the 1967 British Open Golf Tournament

A year before his infamous goof that cost him a chance to win the 1968 Masters, Argentine great Roberto De Vicenzo earned his first - and only - major championship victory at the 1967 British Open.

De Vicenzo was 44 years, 93 days old, which made him the third oldest winner of a major at that time. Still today, De Vicenzo remains the oldest winner of the British Open post-1900 (Old Tom Morris was 46 when he won in 1867).

The defending champion was Jack Nicklaus, and Nicklaus shared the lead at the midway point. De Vicenzo shot 67 in the third round to Nicklaus' 71, taking a 2-stroke lead over Gary Player and a 3-stroke lead over Nicklaus into the final round.

And in the final round, De Vicenzo - who had six previous Top 3 finishes in the Open Championship and eight previous Top 6 finishes dating to 1948 - held off Nicklaus' challenge while Player fell back with a 74.
