Travis' Trusty Putter Slips a Cog In
Holiday Golf Tourney Final
Rapid Traveling- Throughout With
lf-IIole Consolation Win
For Dr. Gardner
'TWAS smooth, steady,
rapid traveling through
out the Holiday golf
tourney, not in one but
all divisions j the final
round for the President 's
trophy bringing Hunter
and Travis together.
And the gallery, remem
bering the Wee Burn golfer's vic
tory last spring, was quick to grasp the
situation. Hunter broke the ice with
wins on the first two holes, Travis re
taliating by gathering in the next two.
Hunter was in the lead again, however,
on the fifth, halved the sixth, and won the
seventh; Travis squaring matters at the
turn by skilful using of his trusty putter
(which off and on slipped a cog) on the
eighth and ninth greens.
The tenth was well played and halved
in fours; an over-iron losing Travis the
eleventh. The twelfth was a halve in 4
and Hunter took the thirteenth in 3, but
lost the fourteenth in 7, aided by the
pit. A stymie or very close to one, lost
Hunter the fifteenth, his approach putt
hitting Travis' ball, but he won the six
teenth with a 4; Travis in the pit on his
second. The tee shots were even honors
on the seventeenth, Travis' putt over
running with Hunter snug up; the
Garden City player missing and the Wee
Hum golfer holing in 3 for the match
by two and one. H Applause? fYes
indeed! U The cards:
Hunter Out 44664334 539
Travis Out 55545 3 43 438

Hunter's semi-final was four and three
over I). L. Armstrong, but the second
round with Barber was not so easy. One
up at the turn, Hunter won the tenth
and halved the eleventh, only to lose the
twelfth where he had difficulty and
picked up. The thirteenth was even
honors, Hunter making a brilliant re
covery from a tee shot to the pit and both
balls lying twenty feet from the hole on
the seconds. The Wee Burn golfer was
away and holed with apparent satisfac
tion, only to find his opponent's ball fol
lowing suit. The fourteenth was all kinds
of trouble and a halve in 7, and the fif
teenth was 5 each, Hunter winning the
sixteenth in par, and halving the seven
teenth in a perfect 3 for the match,
by two and one. If The cards :

In the first round Hunter scored two
up in play with C. D. Armstrong, Jr.,
having a bit the best of it throughout.
Next in line came J. C. Parrish who
was six down and five to play, Travis
recording a season's record of seventy -thTee
