Winning the Masters can be a defining moment in one’s life. How much so?
Billy Casper, who won the event in 1970, was buried in his green jacket.
That tidbit comes from an article at the Augusta Chronicle’s Masters site — Augusta.com.
Doug Stutsman’s piece caught up with Casper’s wife, Shirley, who indicated that she asked for and received permission from Augusta National for this last act.
A 51-time PGA Tour winner and three-time major champion, Casper died in 2015 at the age of 83.
