Invitation vs. Invitational (1988 and older)[edit]

A couple of edits have attempted to change the spelling of the Colonial National Invitation to the Colonial National Invitational. I compiled some evidence to show that it was, in fact, the Invitation, and I'd like to show it here for future reference (and to those who attempt to 'fix' the spelling):

From PGATour.com:

  • The idea for the Colonial National Invitation Golf Tournament was conceived in 1941 after the U.S. Open championship was held here. 1
  • The birth of the Colonial event, however, was delayed five years due to World War II. In the meantime, members planned to emulate the very best, the Masters Tournament, which had begun in 1934. Colonial even adopted part of that tournament's original name, the "Invitation Tournament." 2
  • 1978 Colonial National Invitation. (along with many more than Mr. Trevino, 3
  • Nelson didn't have much of a chance to win the Colonial National Invitation (now the Bank of America Colonial), 4

And on other sites:

  • 1958 Tommy Bolt 282 Colonial National Invitation Tournament 5

Hope this helps. :) -- DakPowers (Talk) 19:20, 4 June 2006 (UTC)
