1960

Michael Cestone, age 55, of Montclair, N.J., competed in his first Senior Amateur Championship at Oyster Harbors Club, Osterville, Mass., and finished as winner.

He defeated David Rose, 56, Cleveland, Ohio, on the 20th hole of the final match. Other semi-finalists were W.B. McConnell, Kennett Square, Pa., and Edward E. Lowery, San Francisco, Calif.

Weather played a large part in the Championship. Steady rain fell on the day scheduled for the qualifying and continued into the following day, causing cancellation of play both days.

The USGA Senior Championship Committee was forced to extend the Championship one day, to Sunday, and to schedule two match rounds on Saturday.

The Committee also decided to permit the use of automotive transportation on the double-round day. Defending Champion J. Clark Espie, Jr., Indianapolis, Ind., withdrew because carts were to be permitted in the emergency, contrary to the published conditions of the tournament.

The medalist was S.S. Rockey, of Los Angeles, who shot 74. A record 517 entered the Championship-126 more than the previous high.
