In the 1913 US Open, 20-year-old Francis Ouimet played golf against his idol, 1900 US Open champion, Englishman Harry Vardon.
Final film of Armand Laroche.
Morning, Harry. Dreadful English weather.
Harry Vardon: How'd you sleep?
Ted Ray: Like a baby. Woke up every two hours and cried.
When Vardon's ball lands in rainwater in a sand trap, he stands in the water and plays the ball out of the water. The rules of golf clearly state that occasional water entitles a free drop: "If your ball comes to rest in casual water within a bunker, you may drop without penalty at the nearest point of relief within the bunker, no nearer the hole. That applies no matter what the condition is of the rest of the bunker."
