UTLQQK VOL. XVIII, NO. 6 SATURDAY MORNING, JANUARY 9, 1915 FIVE CENTS THE TROPHY IS HUNTER'S 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.

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.
