On this Day
1955 -- Palmer wins his first professional tournament, the Canadian Open, with what will become a career low 72-hole total of 265. His first place check is $2,400, and becomes the first substantial check that will grow into career PGA Tour earnings of $2,100,239. Years later, when Tiger Woods is told of some of Palmer's winning purses in comparison to his million dollar pay checks, he jokes, "Thank God for inflation." The putter Palmer uses for his first victory is stolen from his unattended bag. It has never been found.
