Do you want to know my guess? (Hint: I watched him get walloped by Richey in the 1968 Canadian Open final. Richey won zero majors.)
Dan, In 1968 Buchholz was after his peak.
Edit: In 1969.
Butch would have had good chances to win amateur majors against players like Emerson, Santana and Stolle. The latter three were not unvincible, to say the least. By the way, Gimeno as an amateur would most probably have won amateur majors.
