In the semi-final round for the cham
pionship trophy which is in progress this
morning, W. C. Carnegie, of the St. An
drews Golf Club, is playing G. W. Keates
of the Brae Burn Club, and Allan Lard,
of the Columbia Golf Club, C. L. Becker,
of the Woodland Golf Club; the winners
of these two matches coming together
for the final rounds this afternoon.
Interest, however, is by no means
centered upon these contests forthe semi
finalists and finalists in each of the other
divisions are evenly matchejl and many
hole for hole battles will be the rule.
The Country Club House and the
course are thronged with players and
the progress of the rounds is being fol
lowed with keen interest. It is doubtful
if any tournament here has ever had a
more brilliant or more fitting ending.
In qualification Thursday, Mr. Carne
gie led the field with a card of 79, win
ning the gold medal offered by a narrow
margin of two strokes, from Mr. Becker,
who scored 81.
