    Background: America's Bobby Nichols, withstanding a tremendous finish by fellow countryman Arnold Palmer, won the $200,000 carling World Golf Tournament Sunday (30 August).

    Nichols beat Palmer and an international field of professionals by one stroke over the par-70, 6,907-yard oakland Hills Country Club course. Nichols closed with a 72 for a 72-hole total of 278.

    South Africa's Gary Player finished third with a 281, two strokes behind Palmer's 279. Player was paired, along with Peter Bulter, the 1963 British P.G.A. champion, with Palmer, Butler finisher 24th. Fourth place was taken by America's Ben Hogan, who is 52 years old. Tied with Hogan's score of 282 was Pete Brown, of California. Bruce Devlin, of Australia, was sixth with a total of 283.

    It was a remarkable comeback for Bobby Nichols who last month won the P.G.A. champion. It was thought the 28-year-old Nichols would never play golf again after an automobile accident 12 years ago almost cost him his life. It was Hogan who wrote him and encouraged him during the recovery period since Hogan had been a victim of a very serious auto crash in 1947 and had to fight his way back to health also.

    The international field included players from the U.S., Canada, Great Britain, Australia, Japan, South Africa, Puerto Rico and Spain.
