Opened in 1967, Briarwood was host to the “Battle at Briarwood” featuring Jack Nicklaus, Miller Barber and Bobby Cole on June 7, 1971. Mr. Nicklaus came to Briarwood on a hot streak having won the 1970 Open Championship, the 1971 PGA Championship in February and finishing 2nd in the Masters Tournament at Augusta National Golf Club, prior to the exhibition in June. In 1971, Mr. Nicklaus would win 4 more PGA Tour events and set a single-season earnings record of $244,490. Mr. Barber won the 1971 Phoenix Open shooting -23 for the tournament.
