Q&A on Colonial
There's an interesting interview over on PGA.com with Dow Finsterwald Jr., the head pro at Colonial Country Club. He's also, of course, the son of Dow Finsterwald Sr., who won the PGA Championship in 1958 when it was played at stroke play for the first time (coincidentally, Papa Finsterwald was the loser in the championship match the previous year, the final year of match play). Anyway, Finsterwald Jr. provides plenty of interesting history and perspective on grand ol' Colonial (the rough used to have lots of clover in it, for instance). Check it out.
