Video: PGA releases Kel Nagle’s final interview
In January golf lost its oldest Major champion – the great Kel Nagle.
Nagle’s achievements were significant, none more so than his win at the 1960 Open Championship in its centenary year where he secured a one stroke victory over Arnold Palmer on the Old Course at St Andrews – denying the American the Grand Slam.
“The British Open was a fantastic thrill for me,” said Nagle, in an interview with World Golf Hall of Fame at the time of his inauguration in 2007.
“It opened a lot of doors. I got invitations to play in tournaments all over the place and it was tremendous for me at that stage of my life to win.”
In a fitting occasion on the eve of The 144th Open, the PGA has released Nagle’s final interview where he speaks candidly about ‘that win’ in this never before seen video featuring one of golf’s great gentlemen who left an indelible mark on our game.
Nagle was a consistent victor around the globe from 1949 to 1975, winning a tournament every year for 26 years, which included 61 wins on the PGA Tour of Australasia and two on the PGA TOUR.
