    Background: Billy Casper won the Western Open Golf Championship near Chicago, USA on Sunday (1 July) for the fourth time, overtaking Australia's Bruce Crampton in the final round.

    Casper returned a two-under-per 69 for a 12-under-per total of 272 at the Midlothian Country Club. It was his first tournament win since 1971, and it earned him prize money of 35-thousand dollars (approx. GBP 15,000 sterling).

    Finishing one shot behind him were Hale Irwin, also with a 69, and Larry Hinson, with a 67.

    In the bid for his fifth victory this year, Crampton faltered to a two-over-per 73, and a tie for fourth place with J.C. Snead and Hubert Green, on 274.

    The victory for Billy Casper pushes up his total winnings to 377-thousand dollars (approx. GBP 138-thousand sterling).
