They snaked their way beside the undulating fairways of Royal Birkdale all week, a group of around 150 spectators wearing white T-shirts and caps, displaying colorful banners and cheering on their working-class hero playing inside the ropes.
Chad Collins missed a chance for the 10th sub-60 round in PGA Tour history and third of the season, parring the final two holes for an 11-under 60 on Friday in the second round of the Barbasol Championship.
