Maxwell had a hero in his tale, W. D. Kelly, Trenton, who left
here this week.
"Kelly's tee shot on one of the short holes went on a dead line
for the flag. We couldn't see whether it went in the hole or not,
but Kelly admitted it was close.
" 'Just have to haul out the old flag and the ball will flop right
into the li'l old cup,' said he.
"It might have done so, but the trouble was, when we came on
the green, the ball was-two feet from the cup."
Chimed in Kelly, "wasn't that tough ?"
Don't know. The pill we hit seldom lands two feet from the
cup. How about you ?
The best card for the courses here made by a woman golfer all
this season was the 83 scored by Miss Sara Fownes, Pittsburgh,
January 27. It was made on No. 1. She went out in 40 and came
home in 43. The pretty part of it was that for the eighteen holes
played she had but twenty-one putts. Some say one doesn't get
much putting practice that a-way. Others say it could be done,
mebbe, in eighteen putts. The rest feel that 54 is a fair par for
Here is the card made by Miss Fownes :
Out 445, 565, 34440. In 635, 645, 4644383.
Alec Ross, who recently scored a brilliant round of 67 over the
championship course, came near duplicating the feat this week when
he breezed over the eighteen holes in 68.
Alec played in a four-ball match and his team won, 1 up. He
started out with a birdie on the first hole ; got another on the fourth
and made it three out of five by sinking a long one on the fifth for
another birdie. He took a 4 on the short sixth where his approach
was short, but came back strong with birdies on the seventh and
eighth holes and wound-up the outward journey in 32, four strokes
under par. Alec's card coming home included par figures on the
tenth and eleventh, a birdie on the fourteenth, par on the sixteenth
and a twenty-foot putt for a birdie 2 on the seventeenth. A par 4
on the eighteenth gave him 36 for the inward trip.
His card was: Out 444, 344, 42332. In 445, 544, 424
It has been nearly sixteen years since Alec won the Open
championship and the natural thought would be that even a cham
pion ought to weaken. But not Alec. He is going strong and
appears certain to be one of the favorites for the North and South
Open in March.
Mrs. Sumner R. Hollander has been elected a member of the
Billie O'Brien, twelve-year-old son of P. B. O'Brien, went over
the No. 1 course in 91 during the week past. His card was : Out
665, 644, 35544. In 547, 375, 66447-91. Billie's previous
best round was 99, made a few days before.
The weekly putting contest held on the clock greens at the Coun
try Club resulted in a tie, at 23, between Mrs. A. S. Higgins and
Mrs. W. F. Smith. Mrs. B. L. Tyrrel made the twelve corners in
24, and Mrs. H. C. Beall, Miss ' Caroline Bogart, Mrs. Alonzo
Daniels and Mrs. J. H. Wright tied, at 25. The play-off for first
prize between Mrs. Higgins and Mrs. Smith will be played one day
