Over the years, appreciating the monumentality of Francis Ouimet's achievements in golf, people have tried to treat him as a monument. They have never gotten very far. The role of the idol has never had any appeal for Francis. He is a player, always has been and always will be—a man who finds what he wants in the direct and satisfying pleasure of the game of golf itself. Today at 64, a stockbroker in the Boston office of Brown Brothers Harriman, Francis has to limit his golf to about a round a week because of back trouble, but he still plays in the middle 70s with the same basic swing, the same old verve. His influence goes quietly marching on. For example, the Ouimet Caddie Scholarship Fund, founded by his friends and admirers, has since 1949 aided some 175 young men to procure a college education.
