Wish I had a picture... it gives a stroke-by-stroke account of the 12 that Arnold Palmer scored there during the 1960 L.A. Open.

Eric Franzen:
Thanks Ryan!

On a completely different note...

There are two British Open plaques that come to mind. One is at Royal Lytham & St. Anne's, marking the spot of a famous Open shot by Bobby Jones (on the 17th hole, I think).  The other marks an Open shot (the "rocket from the gorse") by Arnold Palmer at Royal Birkdale. As both are in the rough, neither are especially easy to find.  

What contemporary discussion of golf plaques would be complete without at least mentioning the Phil Mickelson "I bet this'll make Sportscenter" moment in Baltusrol's 18th fairway...
