Nicklaus finished tied for first with Chi Chi Rodriguez after shooting five under par in the fourth round.

Nicklaus started in 594 PGA events, he made the final cut for 506 of them.  Of the 286 times he made the top ten, he claimed 73 tour wins. A record setting 20 of the wins were major championships. These wins include the Amateur Championship, the Masters and a number of senior tours. More information can be found about him at a museum in his name. It is located in the Ohio State University sports complex. It is his tribute in his home town Columbus, Ohio.
