Gene Littler (US) v Gary Player (South Africa) at Sunningdale.
A meeting of two of the outstanding players of recent years: Ryder Cup player Littler, one of the few to have won the US Amateur and Open titles, against Player, one of only four men to have won the world's four major championships and whose two successive tournament victories in recent weeks bring his total winnings in America to Â£320,000. Two very different characters: Player emotional, fanatical in perfection of technique; Littler quiet, relaxed, so undemonstrative that he is known as 'Gene the Machine'.
Prize-money: $4,000 to the winner $2,000 to the loser
