Arnold Palmer never won an Open Championship at St. Andrews. He did win two Open Championships in his career, but never lifted a trophy at "The Home of Golf". That changed at least in a ceremonial sense yesterday when Palmer and his team won the Champion Golfers' Challenge on the eve of the 2015 edition of the Open at St. Andrews.

The event, a four-hole exhibition that pits former Open champions against each other in four-person teams, actually finished in a four-way tie at the top at 3-under but were awarded the victory because it had the highest average age. Palmer was joined on his team by Darren ClarkePaul Lawrie and Bill Rogers.

Palmer did not participate in the event, as he is still recovering from his shoulder surgery. He did, however, hit an opening tee shot, just like he did at this year's Masters with Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player.

Also finishing the exhibition at 3-under yesterday were the teams of Tom Weiskopf, Mark O’Meara, Tiger Woods, and Nick Price, Peter Thomson, Ben Curtis, Ernie Els, and Phil Mickelson, and Tony Jacklin, John DalyNick Faldo, and Tom Lehman. 

Tom Watson, Ian Baker-FinchTodd Hamilton, and Louis Oosthuizen finished one shot back at 2-under. Gary Player, Stewart CinkMark Calcavecchia, and Padraig Harrington and Bob Charles, David DuvalJustin Leonard, and Sandy Lyle finished at 1-under.

For the win, Palmer and his team recieved $150,000 to go to their charity of choice.
