The 1966 Team Championship was dominated by The King & The Golden Bear

On this day in 1966 arguably the two biggest figures in golf got together to win the PGA National Team Championship.  Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus teamed up to win the $50,000 first price by shooting an amazing 32 strokes under par.  A record in its own right.  It was their first time being teammates in their careers, they would win again in 1970 & 1971.  The dynamic duo put together rounds of 63, 66, 63, & 64 for a 72 hole total of 256.


Palmer from a press conference: “I don’t think either Jack or I would have (decided to come and played together) if we didn’t think we had a chance to win. Our plan is to win. If we don’t we’ll just get on with our lives, and try it again somewhere else.”
Palmer and Nicklaus have had outstanding success teaming with one another in the past.

Below is a list of their results together in team play:
