The Browns are asking for:
• $5,638, the amount Sarah Brown would’ve earned had she finished The International at Concord at 8-under 208. She was 3 under par for the event when she was removed from the golf course with nine holes remaining.
• A waiver of the entry fee to 2010 LPGA Q-School, a $5,000 value. Brown advanced to the finals last year, finishing 84th.
• An annual seminar for Duramed Futures Tour rules official outlining how to handle difficult situations. “I’d like it to be called the Sarah Brown Seminar,” Keith Brown said.
“I went through a lot that day,” said Sarah Brown, who began the day at 5 under par, three shots off the lead, but was 2 over at the turn. “It was upsetting and humiliating for me to be in that situation.”
Colonial has nearly always demanded experience and patience. Except for Dave Stockton in 1967, no brash, young intruder has ever won. The list of former Colonial champions has reflected age and wisdom. It was no coincidence that Hogan won it five times or that Billy Casper and Julius Boros won it twice. These three, Colonial's only repeaters, have managed to capture almost as many U.S. Opens. DAN JENKINS
