    Narrowing down this clip's current date range, seen here is the 1964 Carroll Sweet Afton Tournament, ("Sweet Afton" bing a Carroll's cigarette brand).

    "Christi O'Connor" in text and tags should read Christy O'Connor.

    Seen at 01:42 is golfer Peter Alliss.

    Further footage of the event can be seen in clip 2271.06.
