After taking 38 putts in the third round and 40 in the fourth, 1920 U.S. Open champ Ted Ray praised the greens and chided himself. "I thought of pasting a bit of stamp-paper on my putter blade," he said. "That slows your ball up a bit. And I tried three [different] putters a rare thing for me. But I couldn't get the touch. Mind you, it's myself that was wrong, not the greens. The greens were the most beautiful, and the fastest, I have ever played on. But I couldn't do it."
