In Play: The Country Club celebrates Ouimet Centennial

One hundred years ago, Francis Ouimet won the U.S. Open as an amateur, at the age of 20, at the course across the street from his house, against the two best players int the world. On Saturday - exactly one century and a day after Ouimet's win - The Country Club replayed final four holes of his playoff win over Harry Vardon and Ted Ray. Everyone dressed up in period clothing from 1913, and every shot was played from the exact location that it was played in one hundred years ago.
