1995 British last for Palmer, he says

January 15, 1995|By Los Angeles Times

Arnold Palmer says he'll play in his last British Open this summer.

"I can promise you it will be my last British Open," said Palmer. "Unless I win it and go back and defend. But I'm not assuming I'm gonna win."

Palmer, 65, won the British Open in consecutive years, 1961 and 1962, at Royal Birkdale and at Troon. This year's tournament will be played at St. Andrews.

Palmer has mapped out a limited playing schedule, beginning with the Senior Skins Game Jan. 28-29 at the Mauna Lani Resort on the Kohala Coast of Hawaii.
