The PGA had a pretty relaxed attitude in 1974

The purse was $250,000, parking was $5, beer was like $2 for a six pack, but the good times at the Atlanta Country Club? Free, man. Free as the wind (after the wind paid a $30 entry fee.) There is an Atlanta Rhythm Section song playing in this photo. It is "Champagne Jam." (HT: HC)
