Ohio Kings Island Open

The Ohio Kings Island Open was a golf tournament on the PGA Tour from 1973 to 1977. It was played at Jack Nicklaus Golf Center in Mason, Ohio. The tournament was dropped when the LPGA Championship moved there in 1978.


Tournament highlights

  • 1973: Jack Nicklaus shoots a third round 62 on his way to a six-shot victory over Lee Trevino in the inaugural version of the tournament. After the tournament was over, Nicklaus announced he would be giving all of his first place check, $25,000, to charity.[1]
