Meeting- In History
SATURDAY'S play in
the Advertising Golf
Tournament rounded
out a glorious week of
perfect weather, inter
esting competition and
congenial companion
ship, the program in
cluding not only the
men's final match play round, but mixed
foursomes, men's foursomes, handicaps
in three classes, a consolation handicap,
a woman's handicap, and the conclusion
of the special events ; the possession of
no less than thirty trophies being decid
ed, f Interest of the day naturally cen
tered in the final championship trophy
between Marshall Whitlatch of the Oak
land Club and R." M. Purves of Wood
land, which the Oakland player won on
the seventeenth green, three up and one
to play. Throughout the match, an
element of uncertainty held the attention
of a big gallery a contest which will
furnish topic for conversation and
nineteenth green explanations for many
a day to come.
Going out in thirty-nine, Whitlatch
made the turn two up, winning the sec
ond, third, fourth and ninth holes and
losing the first and sixth ; the fifth and
eighth being halved. A topped drive
which made the rough at the left cost
Whitlatch the tenth in a halved 6, for
Purves spoiled a good drive with a bad
second. A brilliant third captured the
eleventh for Purves, and the twelfth was
halved in a perfect 4. Straight down
the alley from the start, Whitlatch won
the thirteen (56) through a stroke
gained on a poor tee shot by Purves, a
pair of 5's halved the fourteenth, and 3's
the fifteenth, where Purves made the
green with Whitlatch adjoining it. The
sixteenth was a halve in 4, with the
advantage in favor of Whitlatch. The
tee shots on the critical seventeenth
placed Whitlatch just between the trap
and the green, while Purves was hole
high on the other side of a whisker
bunker. Both approaches were un
satisfactory, but Whitlatch went down
in 4, while Purves required an extra
stroke. Coming in Whitlatch took thirty-nine
strokes for the eight holes and
Purves forty-one. fin the semi-final,
Mr. Whitlatch advanced on a four and
three win from George 0. .Dutton of
Oakley, and in the second lound was
three and two with VV. J. Micdonald of
Calumet, turning in a card of seventy
eight. His first round was six and four
over T. A. Ashley of Woodland.
Mr. Purves' progress was not seriously
interfered with except in the second
round with I. S. Robeson of Oak Hill,
where a brilliant rally gave him an
opportunity to win out on the nineteenth
lowing his victory over the Oak Hill
player, defeated Don M. Parker of Gar
den City by five and four, f In the con
solation, Mr. Ashley and Mr. Wright,
the two players beaten by the winners
of the championship in the first round,
came together and played twenty holes
before Mr. Ashley won.
Other close matches were the first
round between Harold Slater of Fox
Hills and J. D. Plummer of Springfield.
Three down at the turn, the Massachu
setts player captured the tenth, twelfth,

green. Three down at the seventh, the
Woodland player rallied for wins on the
eighth and ninth, with a pair of 3s,
halved the tenth in 4, won the eleventh,
4 5, halved the twelfth in 4, the thir
teenth in 5, the fourteenth, fifteenth and
