Things come tense when on the 18th tee Billy Casper jumped from second place with Nicklaus, Broros and Reid right into a tie for first place with Art Wall Jr. He picked up two shots on Art Wall on the final hole to force the first Canadian Open playoff in eleven years. Casper made golf history, becoming the first ever to break a course in an 18 hole playoff. It was sensational golf between two of the game's all time greats. The winner - Billy Casper."
