In match play he figured in the fast
est rounds of the week, advancing from
an easy victory over Frank Presbrey of
Garden City, in opening play, to a nine-teen-hole
match with Frederick Snare of
Englevvood, which a single stroke de
cided. In the semi-final he met Mr. Free
man whom he defeated three up and two
to play, the seventeenth green deciding

each, starting home two up. The tenth
was halved, Mr. Tuckerman won the
eleventh in four, one under bogey, halved
the twelfth and won the thirteenth to

run down a moderate putt. Mr. Tucker

gave the extra hole to Mr. Tuckerman,

ninth, placing the ball dead to the hole
from a bunker thirty yards away. On
the fourteenth a stymie saved the hole
for Mr. Hazen, Mr. Tuckerman's bril
liant shot on the seventeenth undoubt
