Tribune’s Kragthorpe Reviews Legacy of Billy Casper

Salt Lake Tribune writer Kurt Kragthorpe reviews the playing career of Billy Casper, who after becoming one of the greatest players of all time became a Utahn. He was a charter inductee into the Utah Golf Hall of Fame. He passed away of a heart attack several days ago at his home in Springville.

Billy Casper reacts after he ran a 25-foot putt into the cup on the 11th green for a birdie 3 during his playoff with Arnold Palmer for the U.S. Open title in San Francisco, on June 20, 1966. Two strokes down at the time, Casper pulled even when Palmer bogeyed the hole. (Associated-Press)
