June 18, 1960: Arnold Palmer enters the final round of the U.S. Open with a seven-stroke deficit behind leader Mike Souchak but stages a memorable comeback to win.

Palmer birdied six of the first seven holes and registered a 30 on the opening nine to take the lead from Souchak. Palmer finished with a 65 in the final round to capture his second major of the year.

Jack Nicklaus, playing as an amateur, finished in second place, two strokes behind Palmer. Souchak was among a group of six golfers who tied for third three shots back.

As accomplished as Palmer was throughout his career, this epic comeback is his only U.S. Open victory.
