Cup, Making- 'Possllle" 03
WHEN the number two
course was laid out Wal
ter J. Travis described
it as "one with an ever
vanishing ideal," and
for a month past he has
been pursuing it, draw
ing nearer and nearer
to the goal which few
may even strive for. Monday the Gar
den City expert got as close to it as any
one ever has thus far,equalingthe course
record held by Professional Alexander
Ross with a marvelous sixty-eight.
Without question the round is the most
remarkable this "King of all golfers" has
ever made ; thirty-eight out and thirty
one in, with three on the thirteenth
(318 yards), par four; three on the
fourteenth (432 yards) par five; and
one on the fifteenth (213 yards), par
three. The ball was in the cup and ouU
on the first and seventh, and rimmed the
cup on the sixteenth, seventeenth and
eighteenth; thus making the round a
perfectly "possible" sixty-three, which
is not less than three strokes below the
theoretical possibilities of the course;
a sixty-seven round. Mr. Travis' card :
OUT 5 4 4 4 5 4 5 2 437
In-4 4 4 3 3 1 4 4 431-68
Notes Short putts were also missed
on the sixth, ninth and fourteenth, a re
duction of three more strokes, making a
possible sixty, and Mr. Travis was play
ing without the midiron. which cost him
strokes on the fifth and seventeenth,
bringing the round down to a possible
My tight; but if you've played the
course your head has begun to whirl ere
An amusing incident occurred on the
fifteenth tee where Mr. Travis posed for
an amateur photographer who wanted a
picture of his ."swing." This secured,
the photographer asked permission to
take him putting, and followed down to
the green where the ball rested in the
hole. "You have it, all on one plate," re
marked Mr. Travis dryly, "the drive and
the putt !"
Playing with Mr. Travis in a four ball
atch against Col. J. E. Smith of Wil
mington and George II. Crocker of
Urookline was Allan Lard of Washing
ton, the pair conceding one hole in start
up, and winning three and two. Mr.
Lard figured on one hole only, the ninth,
with a three; making the best ball card
sixty-seven to seventy-three for Col.
Smith and Mr. Crocker.
