1963 U.S. Open Winner and Scores

The 1963 U.S. Open was the 63rd time the tournament was played, and Julius Boros won his second championship in an 18-hole playoff.

Winner: Julius Boros, 293

Where it was played: The Country Club in Brookline, Massachussetts

Tournament dates: June 20-23, 1963

Leader after first round: Bob Gajda, 69

Leader after second round: Arnold Palmer, Jacky Cupit and Dow Finsterwald, 142

Leader after third round: Jacky Cupit, 218

Notable Notes: Scores were so high at this U.S. Open that Jacky Cupit shot 75 in the third round and moved into the lead. He had a 15-foot putt on the 72nd hole to win it, but lipped it out. So Cupit, along with Julius Boros and Arnold Palmer (who missed a 2-foot putt on the 71st hole) tied at 293, the highest winning score in the post-World War II U.S. Open era. In the 18-hole playoff, Boros won with a 70 to Cupit's 73 and Palmer's 76. Boros was 43, at the time the second-oldest winner of this championship.
