    1960: PGA Championship

    Firestone Country Club -- Akron, Ohio

    At the ime Jay Hebert was a 37-year-old ex-(UL)-Marine who was wounded at Iwo Jima during World War II, battled his way into history at the rebuilt Firestone Country Club.

    Hebert overcame a double bogey at the 10th hole, and birdied two of the last four holes to defeat Jim Ferrier by one stroke.

    Hebert joined former Champion Lionel Hebert (1957) as the only brother combination to win a PGA Championship. Lionel, five years younger than Jay, also played at Firestone. He finished tied for 18th.

    The 37-year-old Jay posted a 67 in the second round, one of only 13 sub-par rounds in the Championship on the 7,165-yard course.

    Hebert's victory thwarted Arnold Palmer's bid for winning three-fourths of professional golf's Grand Slam.
