tent, Palmer, 37, shoots a final round 68 to win $20,000 the title at the Los Angeles Open by a runaway 5-stroke margin. Palmer says Los Angeles-based LeFiell
Sports Products persuaded him to abandon his steel shafts for the
aluminum counterparts. It is Palmer's 60th career victory. "From tee to
green, this was a better round than the 62 I had here last year, but

Statement from Arnold Palmer
"I was saddened to learn of the passing of Kel Nagle. I always considered Kel a good friend and enjoyed his company on and off the course. We had some exciting times together, especially at my first Open Championship when he won and I finished second at St. Andrews. Kel had an outstanding career and well deserved the admiration he earned from the golfing community and sports world."
