    I ran across this and other historical golf films on the USGA app included with my new Roku TV. You can also find them on YouTube. It's hard to believe how grainy and primitive the coverage was nearly 50 years ago. I don't remember it that way. I watched this and other major championships during my teens. This was the last time I remember Arnold Palmer (54-hole leader) contending in a major.

    HEADING INTO THE FINAL ROUND of the 1973 U.S. Open at Oakmont Country Club, there was a four-way tie for the lead, including Arnold Palmer seeking his second title. Luminaries Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player and Lee Trevino were also in the mix. Not talked about was Johnny Miller, who went from third place after 36 holes to six strokes behind the leaders heading into Sunday after a third-round 76.

    But four birdies through four holes changed the conversation quickly. Here's Johnny Miller’s historic final round of the 1973 U.S. Open.
