A Review of the Week
(Continued from page 3)
player in a match was undecided what club he ought to use for
his next shot his iron, or his wood.
"Use your head," yipped a fan, "use the wood."
Another fan was following the golf match in his automobile.
One player was about to putt and the fan leaned far over in his
car to have a better look. As he did so, his weight pressed rather
heartily against the horn and it yipped strenuously. The putter had
to cease firing, see who played that trick on him, take his stance
again, the few swings preliminary, the eyeing the hole and the ball,
and all the rest of it. Then of course he missed the putt.
They say there's a links fan here studying the method of applying
a radio to following a golf match all the way from the jolly twack
of driver on ball at the first tee to the klup-klup of the ball into
the eighteenth cup.
Folks could thus sit at home an listen in on a golf match without
following it, a-foot. It's good there wasn't any radio system
attached to the match just described. The instrument might have
even recorded the putter's thoughts, as he missed that putt.
Some things on the links here would be worth while over the
radio, at that. There was the match the other day where one player
was eighteen inches from the hole, an easy putt, and his opponent
rimmed the cup, laying himself a stymie behind the other ball.
"That's a stymie," said he, "so I am sorry to announce that I win
"How come?" asked the player. "It's a stymie so you have to
jump my ball or get in the hole somehow."
"All right," acceded the Hon. Opponent, "I'll get in the hole
So he picked up his ball by hand and tossed it gently into the cup.
"That's the 'somehow' method," said he, proudly.
Another golfer seemed so agitated the other day over his golf
work that we asked him what he'd done.
"Fair," answered he. "Went out nicely in 90, but then my game
went all to pieces coming in."
There is a rumor around the place that we lost our mustache as
a stake in a golf match, versus the barbers. Wish to refute that
one. Didn't play them a golf match with them for it.
Got out of the rough nicely, we admit, but it's surely a tough
life. A dentist takes a tooth right out of the face and charges a
fee for taking this very personal property.
And the barber took that perfectly good mustache right off the
face and charged us for doing it. It's the last time, this week, we
grow a mustache.
There were several notable golf arrivals here this week. Among
them were: Pat Doyle, pro; Cyril Walker, pro; I. S. Robeson,
amateur; Martin J. O'Loughlin, pro, and several others.
S. K. Ames, Detroit, had the best golf score this past week, he's
ever made at Pinehurst, a 93. He golfed on No. 1 but wound up
with a 7-6 or he might have had an 89, at least, so well was he
playing. He's different than H. Bart McHugh, Philadelphia. The
latter, just before he left, played the first seven holes on No. 3 in 40.
As McHugh has never busted 100 in his golf career, and says
he'll give up the game if he ever does, he was worried at that 40
for seven holes, but all turned rosy when he turned with a 9-6 for
a 55 out. Then he could breathe easier.
The mixed foursomes of the Tin Whistle club last week is said
to have had the largest entry ever, with more than 65 couples in
action. Mrs. N. A. Hawkins, Detroit, and Herbert E. Cushman,
Boston, romped home the winners with 52-48-100-23-77.
Mrs. Ronald H. Barlow, Philadelphia women's golf champion,
and P. W. Whittemore, Brookline, finalist in the recent Spring
tourney here, had 39-44-83, the best gross.
