Le­gends unite

The Cut - - WORLD NEWS -

Jack Nick­laus and Arnold Palmer have been named honorary cochair­men of the 2016 US Open Cham­pi­onship, to be played at Oak­mont Coun­try Club next June.

The golf­ing le­gends made golf history at the Pittsburgh area course in 1962, when Nick­laus de­feated Palmer in an 18-hole play­off to win his first ma­jor cham­pi­onship, and the first of four US Open Cham­pi­onships.

USGA pres­i­dent Thomas J O’Toole Jr said, “They are am­bas­sadors for our game, and it’s only fit­ting that they serve to­gether as we bring our ninth US Open to this sto­ried venue.”
