KEEN PLAY IN WOMEN'S GOLF

the
KEEN play maintained
interest at high pitch
throughout the seventh
annual St. Valentine's
golf tournament for
women, in striking con
trast with Tuesday's
final rounds, none of
which advanced beyond
fourteenth green. IT Mies Louise
Elkins of Oakmont was the ultimate
winner of the chief trophy, six up and
four to play, from Mrs. R. W. Thrift of
Shawnee. In the second division Miss
Edith Barnett of New Haven won, and
in the third, Miss Gwendolyn Cummings
of Brookline.
In qualification the race was a pretty
one between Mrs. Alexander McGregor
of Belmont who won the gold medal
with a card of one hundred and two,
Mrs. Thrift making one hundred and
three, and Miss Elkins one hundred and
five. If The surprise of the week came
in the first round of match play and the
defeat of Mrs. McGregor by Miss Dor
othy Hutchinson of Detroit in a match
which was decidedly out of the ordinary.
Going out Miss Hutchinson won only the
ninth hole, Mrs. McGregor winning five
and turning home four up. Coming in,
however, Miss Hutchinson reversed the
order, squared the match on the six
teenth, gained a lead on the seventeenth,
and halved the eighteenth.
Advancing to meet Miss Elkins the
young Detroit player gave the former
United North and South , Champion a
close match which the eighteenth hole
decided. Halving the first hole, Miss
Elkins gained the lead on the second,
lost it on the third, 43, and halved the
fourth and fifth in 5's and 4's. Miss
Hutchinson won the sixth, but lost the
seventh, captured the eighth.in a bogey,
3, and driving out of bounds picked up
on the ninth. The crisis came on the
tenth where Miss Hutchinson with two
strokes to the good, failed to win and
halved in 6. Miss Elkins won the
eleventh, 34, the twelfth, 45, and
halved the thirteenth s. Miss Hutchin
son took the fourteenth and fifteenth,
68, 67, but lost the sixteenth, 79,
divided honors in'the seventeenth in 3,
and, dormie one, played the eighteenth
badly and lost two down, 5 7.
Mrs. Thrift went forward on a four
and two win from Miss I. C. Linton of
the Royal Montreal Club, in the first
round, and a three and two victory over
Mrs. E. A. Randall of Portland, in the
second. If Both semi-final matches in
the second division ended on the 18th.

local golf turned out
Saturday afternoon to
follow four ball, best
ball play between a sex
tette of fast profes
sionals' including Na
tional Champion J. J.
McDermott who played with Donald J.
Ross, Massachusetts Champion Alexan
der Ross who was paired with W. G.
Fovargue, and M. J. Brady who was
partnered with Thomas McNamara.
If As for spectacular play no hole was ,
without it, and time and time again six
drives went hissing straight down the
course almost beyond the range of ;
vision. To be sure, some of the players
found the rough, and a few of them the
traps which have made the number two
course famous, but it did not seem to
bother the experts in the least.
Donald Ross was the bright and par
ticular star of the afternoon, and the
sixty-seven which he recorded in play,
with McDermott won the first money of
the liberal purse contributed by visitors,
the other two pairs tying for second at
seventy-three, f The cards :
