Victory In the Final
INTEREST throughout
the women's event of
the thirteenth annual
United North and South
Golf Championship cen
tered in the play of Miss
Lillian B. Hyde, metro
politan champion, and
Mrs. J. V. Hurd, former
International champion; their brilliant
qualification scores followed by easy
wins and the climax of the final. f Five
hundred people followed the contest
tense with interest, and Miss Hyde's
four and two victory was one which
might easily have been made an extra
hole match at any one of several critical
stages. The strain of play was apparent
not alone in medal scores, ten strokes
higher than qualification, but in a certain
cautiousness which added brilliancy by
way of contrast. 1 The first hole was
saved for a halve' in 5 by Miss Hyde
through brilliant recovery from the trap
at the right of the green to make good
Mrs. Hurd's perfect play. The second
was well played with a 56 win for Mrs.
Hurd. The third was halved in 6, and
the fourth in 4 where a fine approach by
Mrs. Hurd came within an ace of going
down. Miss Hyde won the fifth, 45,
by holing a sensational sixty-yard run-ning-up
approach after a good drive, a
flubbed brassey and a topped third. The
short sixth was an indifferent halve in 5,
and on the seventh the metropolitan
player got into numerous kinds of diffi
culties and picked up after playing seven
shots, while Mrs. Hurd went down in 6.
Miss Hyde recovered for a win in bogey
4 on the eighth, but lost the ninth to a
bogey 3 for Mrs. Hurd, who turned home
one up with a medal score of forty-four
to forty-nine for her opponent.
Miss Hyde evened the score on the
tenth with.a clean-cut 4, and likewise on
the 415-yard eleventh she went down in
the same score and one under bogey, to
a poor 7, through a sliced drive for Mrs.
Hurd which the wind caught and placed
badly. Another 4, one below bogey,
gave Miss Hyde a lead of two up on the
twelfth, and the crisis of the match, for
Mrs. Hurd made the trap at the right on
her drive, and got well out only to make
a second trap from which she made the
green in 5 and required two putts. Miss
Hyde made a 5 and one under bogey on
the thirteenth,. while Mrs. Hurd took an
extra stroke as a result of a penalty by
being trapped on her second and making
a good out only to lie badly. Mrs. Hurd
came back for a win on the 432-yard
fourteenth with a one under bogey 4, to
7 for Miss Hyde who pulled her tee shot
into the rough and recovered well, only
to top her iron, overrun on her fourth
holes, Mrs. Hurd won the seventeenth,
3 5, and the eighteenth, 5 7, recording
a forty-seven to a forty-three for Miss
Hyde coming hi. If The cards :

The fifteenth was beautifully played,
Miss Hyde winning, 34. On the six
teenth, a tee shot to the pond cost Mrs.

quired a drive, a brassey and two putts
for a 4 and the match, f On the bye
