(AP) Ever since Francis Ouimet won the 1913 U.S. Open and sent Ted Ray and Harry Vardon back to England empty-handed, The Country Club has not been kind to foreign golfers.


Two more Opens have been held here, and each was won by an American. Same with the two Walker Cups, three Women's Amateurs and five U.S. Amateurs at The Country Club not to mention the 1999 Ryder Cup, in which the U.S. team rallied on the final day to beat Europe.


At this year's U.S. Amateur, though, the top of the leaderboard is dominated by foreign players. Englishman Neil Raymond and Australian Brady Watt were at 6-under par at the end of stroke play. They are followed by another Australian, another Englishman and a Canadian three strokes back.
