On This Day in Golf History:
June 25, 1923 - Gene Sarazen won his second U.S. Open Championship and the fifth of seven majors with a three shot victory at Fresh Meadow Country Club in Flushing, Queens (NYC). Sarazen shot a final round (66) to record the lowest final round in U.S. Open history at the time. Arnold Palmer would eventually beat the record with his (65) at the 1960 U.S. Open. - Courtesy of Randy Walker, Author of On This Day in Golf History, available via Amazon.com and by clicking HERE
