Julius Boros

Julius Boros, of the Mid Pines Club, N.C., who had been a professional only tow and a half years, interrupted the spell Hogan was casting over the Championship. An early starter in the final two rounds, he completed a 71-71-68-71-281, one over par, at the Northwood Club, Dallas, Texas. Hogan started with two 69s to tie the 36-hole record of 138, but he closed with two 74s on a very hot day.

On the last green, Hogan's playing companion, Ed Oliver holed a 50-putt for a birdie to finish second at 285 and Hogan had to be content with third place at 286. The entry of 1,688 set still another new high.
