The Official film of the 1995 Open.
Ring out the old, ring in the new! The toasts at St Andrews - in blustery mood for its 25th Open Championship - were a combination of nostalgic good-byes and expectant hellos to a whole new generation of stars, spearheaded by "The Wild Thing", John Daly.
It was the end of the 'Open' road for the great Arnold Palmer. Side-by-side with the old master came the emerging young 'artists'. Scottish amateur Gordon Sherry, only 21, was up amongst the pace-makers in the first two rounds and, until the final day, it looked as though comparatively unknown New Zealander, Michael Campbell, would spring a major surprise.
But John Daly confounded his critics and the conditions. He allied driving accuracy to a delicate short game and powered his way in front just when it mattered. His victory was not, however, without its dramatic finale.
Constantino Rocca of Italy, eventually the only one who could catch him, on the final hole played probably the Championship's worst and best shots in succession. The first, an amateur's fluff was followed by an unbelievable long putt from the Valley of Sin to tie the lead. Rocca fell to his knees in delight. Daly was stunned, but recovered his composure to dominate the 4-hole play-off. Another great Championship and a worthy winner.
