The Eternal Summer

Palmer, Nicklaus, and Hogan in 1960, Golf's Golden Year

By Curt Sampson
Narrated by Dennis McKee / 8 hours 40 minutes

Was there ever a year in golf like 1960? It was the year that the sport and its vivid personalities exploded on the consciousness of the nation, when the past, present, and future of the game collided. Television, still a new medium, provided a fresh window to the show and enabled this "rich man's sport" to win over millions of new fans. Here was Arnold Palmer, the working man's hero, "sweating, chain-smoking, shirt-tail flying," and winning, it seemed, every tournament with a last-second charge. Grim Ben Hogan, the greatest player of the 1950s, was Arnie's opposite, a perfectionist battling the twin demons of age and nerves. And making his debut in the big time was a chunky, crew-cut college kid who seemed to have the makings of a champion, twenty-year-old Jack Nicklaus.
