Apparently Gene Sauers only got the partial Diana Murphy treatment upon winning the U.S. Senior Open, as she nailed his poentially botchable name and yet somehow mispronounced the trophy name, which memorializes one of the top three most revered USGA champions.
This is great news, as this week's U.S. Amateur takes on even greater meaning. Will Murphy be the first USGA President to win the Grand Slam (Of Trophy Ceremony Butchering) after less-than-subtle mishaps at the U.S. Open, U.S. Women's Open and U.S. Senior Open.

pssst Diana....its OUIMET as in WEE-met
The first-year president made up for the Ouimet mistake with this epic trophy handoff. If only we knew what Miguel Angel Jimenez was thinking?
Nice playing Jeff Sauers!! pic.twitter.com/4aBD3yilmt— Paul Carlson (@CarlPaulsonGolf) August 16, 2016
