Ageless Julius Boros was nearing
50, but he managed to hold off
Arnold Palmer by a shot (in Arnie’s
closest run at the major he never
won) on a track punctuated by
copses of pecans and oaks that
cross Salado Creek nine times. A
1998 renovation by Bob Cupp put
the teeth back into this one.

Pines Course.
