TIN WHISTLES ANNUAL
Won by C. L. Becker and
H. G. White
C. L. Becker, Captain of the club,
outlived the rest of the eighteen players
who formed the Class A. division of the
Tin Whistles' annual Swatfest played
over the championship course on Mon
day of this week, and wound up victori
ously on the nineteenth green for first
prize. ' His most persistent rival was
Richard S. Tufts who clung to Becker
until disaster overtook him at the eigh
teenth green. F. T. Keating kept his head
above water for seventeen holes, and R.
C. Shannon held on until the sixteenth
This particular kind of a swatfest is
an elimination affair one or more play
ers are retired at each successive hole,
and the first poor hole usually spells dis
aster. This fact was well illustrated
when J. D. Chapman and I. S. Robeson,
both top-notch golfers, were put out of
the running at the fourth and eleventh
holes respectively. Chapman's gross
round of 77, however, gave him the low
gross honors of the day.
In the higher handicap division H. G.
White was the sole survivor at the end
of the round. John R. Goodall fought
desperately to repeat his last year's vic
tory of this event, but was put out of
the running at the eighteenth. J. D. C.
Rumsey was the low net player of the
day and his 94-22 72 carried off the
prize for the best net round.

In the course of the Tin Whistles Swat
fest played on Monday of this week,
Richard Tufts registered the first "hole
in one" this season when he sank his
tee shot to the 160-yard seventeenth hole
on Number 2 course. This hole has been
made in one on only two previous occa
sions. Walter J. Travis secured an ace
there in 1913 and C. L. Becker won a
semi-final match with a 1 at that hole,
two years ago. Richard also has to his
credit a 2 for the par 4 eighteenth, which
he made with a full brassie shot during
the past summer.
