I didn't pay much attention to the Walker Cup caddie flap, where GB&I's Jack Senior harmlessly had his club pro brother Joe caddy for him. The local rules sheet stipulated this was a no-no, and as Ryan Herrington explains in a Golf World Monday item, neither captain knew this because they had not read the one page (two-sided!) local rules sheet.
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
