In a study of splendid short-game artistry, 34-year-old Larry Webb won the 16th renewal of the PGA Professional National Championship by four strokes over runner-up Bob Ford, PGA head professional at Oakmont (Pa.) Country Club. Webb, PGA head professional at Ho Ho Kam Country Club in Coolidge, Ariz., almost didn’t play. He qualified as an alternate, but when a friend decided not to play, it opened a spot for Webb. He also had a scare a couple of nights before the start of the Championship, when an intruder broke into his hotel room and made off with $300. Six days after the robbery, Webb forgot about the $300, as he won the $20,000 first prize.
