HAGEN AND MEIGS DEFEAT
Walker and Parson in Fast Match
MISS HELEN COPE WINS
Playing in an amateur-professional ex
hibition match over the Number 1 course
on December 18, Walter Hagen, Western
Open champion, and Dwight R. Meigs
of Merion played against Cyril Walker,
the Englewood professional, and Donald
Parson of Youngstown, and won by 3
and .1. Hagen 's individual round of 34
34 68, which included an approximated
6 on one hole, was the best ball for
his side. Walker ynd Parson had a
best ball of 70.
Hagen had just returned from a ten
days' hunting trip and played the round
with a set of borrowed clubs. He gath
ered in five birdies in the course of his
fine round, sank a 15 footer for a 2 ac
the sixth and went down from the edge
of the green for another 2 at the seven
teenth. Parson, the Youngstown ama
teur, also specialized in holes under par
and got four of them, including a fine
2 at the fifteenth where he went down
from off the green. Cyril Walker, still
a little the worse for wear after an auto
mobile accident in which he played a
leading part on his way down here on
Saturday, went around in 39-35 74 and
registered three birdies. Hagen and Par
son would have had a best ball of 65 if
they had played as partners, and Walker
and Hagen a best ball of 64.
Miss Helen Cope of Delaware Water
Gap, Pav won the prize for the week's
best score at the rifle range with a lead
ing target of 138 points out of a pos
sible 150. Mrs. Lawrence Barr of Pitts
burg, finished second, with 136, and Mrs.
H. P. Boyd of Brookline, third, with 132.

teurs who come down for the big tour
nament will find in Parson a worthy de
fender of the Pinehurst "regulars."
All golfers are pleased with the
changes made on the second nine holes
of Number 3 course. Parker W. Whitte
more has already been well beyond the
big bunker at the seventeenth on his
second shot, and it is likely that other
long hitters will soon be able to get
home on this hole in two.
Two hours and forty-minutes is suf
ficient time for foursomes to use in
playing number two course, according
to C. L. Becker, Donald J. Ross, H. C.
Fownes, and others who have made a
study of speed on that course. In future,
foursomes which cannot maintain a 2:40
pace will be expected to allow others to
Jack Williams, a starter on number
two course, is always on the job. He
keeps in touch with every foursome on
his course and it is a rare thing when
players do not meet up with him some
where during a round.
Cyril Walker, the Englewood profes
sional, is playing some fine golf here
this week. He recently covered the Num
ber 3 course, which has been altered and
made more difficult than ever, in 71, and
later went over Number 2 in 33-34 67.
This round included four birdies and
fourteen holes in par figures. Par for
the course is 71.
It is generally accepted that the new
course at Mid-Pines is more difficult and;
a harder test of golf than any of the
courses at Pinehurst. This is well illus
trated by the fact that Parker W. Whitte
more, the crack amateur, holds the record
of 77 for that course and is the first
player to break 80 there.
Miss Agnes Moebius of Nutley, N. J.,
who spent last season with her mother
at the Pine Crest Inn, has returned as
Mrs. Charles L. Mothersele. " Charlie"
is now kept busy receiving congratula
tions around :the golf club. Mrs; Mother .;
sele will be pleasantly remembered by
her many young friends whom she used
to join on the bridal path last season.
She is an enthusiastic horse woman. The
young couple arrived in their Franklin
car on the 21st, having made their
honeymoon trip over the road, leaving
Nutley on the 15th, the day of their
wedding. They will remain into April.
