PRICE FIVE CENTS
T. S. LIPPY THE WINNER
Defeats Fleming on Thirty-eighth Green
in Holiday Tourney.
T. T. Watnon, W. It. Stone, W. C.
Johnnon, Clarence Angrier and
S. I. Stix. also Win.
PRETTY battle for the
possession of the Presi
dent's or first division
trophy between T. S.
Lippy of the Seattle
Golf and Country Club,
and David Fleming of the Mount Airy
Club, brought the annual Holiday week
golf tournament to a brilliant close. At
noon, with the westerner five down, it
looked like a walk over for the Philadel
phian, and the crowd which put the
match down as a walkover has been
quietly throwing persimmons at itself
Mr. Fleming started the afternoon
round in good form and held his lead
easily to the turn, in fact was five up on
the thirtieth green, but at this point the
Seattle man began to take notice of
things, striking a Bogey gait and win
ning every remaining hole but the thirty
fifth, which was halved, tying the score
on the thirty-sixth green.
It was not necessary to tdll the Satur
day afternoon crowd on the Country
Club House verandas what was up. The
excitement of the contest was in the very
air, and long before the players had
reached the first tee, the gallery was in
Mr. Lippy had the honor and sliced
badly on his drive, just missing the dis
tant pit at the right, and Mr. Fleming
sent a beauty straight down the course
which vanished over the distant hill into
the sky line. Mr. Lippy's long second,
however, was a brilliant recovery and
landed the ball close to the green in a po
sition fully as good as Mr. Fleming se
cured on his short approach. The Phil
adelphian approached short, the west
erner gaining the right to play last by a
closer approach, and Mr. Fleming was up
against a sixteen foot putt to save the
match. A bit he studied, then came the
stroke and down the ball went, while the
crowd held its breath. Mr. Lippy was a
trifle nearer the hole, but a ten foot putt
under similar conditions, is not the sort
of thing the average golfer is seeking,
but he made it and halved the hole in par
Still holding the honor, the westerner
drove a beauty straight down the course
on the thirty-eighth, the Philadelphian
following suit, the balls landing not
twenty feet apart in the middle of the
course. Mr. Fleming was away, how
ever, and flubbed his second. Mr. Lippy
took an iron, and carried the pit, but came
dangerously near to the trap at the right.
Mr. Fleming's third landed in the pit and
it was apparent that it was all over, for
it gave Mr. Lippy two for a win on an
T. T. Watson of Buenos Ayres, won
the second division or Secretary's trophy,
from Fulton Colville of Atlanta, by three
and two, and W. K. Stone of Atlanta, the
the Massachusetts player at his mercy at
the turn, winning by seven up and six to
play, on the twelfth green.
There were two matches which it took
extra holes to decide, P. L. Lightbourn
of Bermuda, defeating D. L. Lyon of
Watch Hill, on the twentieth green in the
first round of the first division, and It. C.
Hatch of St. Louis, winning from Dr.
George S. Hill of Marblehead, on the
nineteenth hole in the second round of
the third division.

being the rule in all divisions. The first
division consolation went to W. C. John
son of New York, the second to Clarence
Angler of Atlanta, and the third to S. L.
Stix of New York.
The surprise of the week was Mr. Lip
py's defeat of C. L. Becker of the Wood
land Golf Club, Auburndale, in the
second round, by seven and six, the west
erner striking a Bogey clip and having
told in the following qualification scores
