Miraculously, there was no NFL Mid-Summer Arrest Report Issue to run, so Sports Illustrated managed to squeeze in the rare golf cover. Pretty cool shot. (I'm not sure who the photographer is, but likely Vuich or Beck.) **It's a Fred Vuich shot!
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
