Harper went on to win four more times, for seven career PGA Tour wins, and played on one Ryder Cup team. Williams won only once in an official PGA Tour event, the 1952 Tucson Open (the Tucson Open was also one of Harper's wins).
Williams beat Bill Heinlein, Emery Thomas, Claude Harmon, Dave Douglas and Henry Picard en route to the finals, the matches against Harmon and Picard going 38 holes each.
Defending champion Sam Snead was knocked out in the second round by Eddie Burke.
