THE WOMEN'S Championship event
of the big tournament began Mon
day and ended Tuesday, and a series of
close matches led up to the final rounds.
The introduction of a special cup for the
consolation, or second eight to qualify,
was a happy thought and this event was
fully as interesting as the Championship.
Mrs. M. D. Paterson of the Engle
wood Golf Club, New Jersey, took the
final round for the cup from Miss M.
Eleanor Freeman of the Montclair Golf
Club, by a score of five up and three to
play, in a pretl y contest. Miss Freeman
played a splendid game going out and at
the turn was only two down. She ral
lied at this point and took the tenth hole
and missed a short putt on the eleventh
for a win. From this point, however,
the.winner had things much her own
Mrs. Paterson's match in the first
round with Miss M. E. Hefielfinger was
a close and uncertain contest which was
practically decided at the fifteenth hole.
At this point the score was two up, in
favor of Mrs. Paterson, who was obliged
to make a long putt for a halve. The
long sixteen hole, however, Miss Hefiel
finger lost on a poor second shot.
Miss Freeman had a series of close
matches before her final round with Mrs.
Paterson, beating both Miss Edith Bar
nett of New Haven, in the first round
and Mrs. William West of Camden, in
the second, by a single stroke on the
The consolation participants were well
matched and the preliminary matches
were hard fought. The final round for
the cup between Mis Susan C. Aldridge
of the Kearsarge Golf Club, N. II., and
Miss Ethel Check of East Orange, New
Jersey, was the feature of the women's
tournament, Miss Aldridge winning the
nineteenth hole by a single stroke.
