WNEMUEST OTLQOK VOL. XVIII, NO. 17 SATURDAY MORNING, MARCH 27, 1915 FIVE CENTS CLIMAX AND ANTI CLIMAX Woman's Championship Develops Keenest Play In History of Classic JMrs. Harlow's Matches With Mn. Ilurd and Airs. Faith Both Contents of Jtany Thrills fll THE women's event of the Championship reached an anti-climax in the semi-final between Mrs. Eoland H. Barlow, for many years eastern champion, and Mrs. J. V. Hurd, International champion as Dorothy Campbell. If Surely no gallery has surpassed in size the vast throng which followed play with breathless inter est, for never was there a moment when the attention could be diverted or the question of the final outcome removed from the critical point of mythical uncertainty. 1f The strain of the contest was apparent in the contestants also, and Mrs. Barlow 's ultimate win was not alone the result of skill but endurance superi ority which became a potent factor as the match neared its close; Mrs. Ilurd 's brilliant, 3 on the fifteenth followed by an indifferent 7 on the sixteenth and what might be called in the language of golfers, "mighty hard luck" on the decisive eighteenth. Mrs. Barlow took the first hole in par 5 and lost an opportunity to win the second through a shot on which she was obliged to lose a stroke through playing back, halving in 7. Mrs. Ilurd squared the match with a par 4 on the third and won the fourth with a one over bogey 5. The next three holes were halved in 6, 4 and 7, a stymie costing Mrs. Barlow the seventh. The Merion golfer took the eighth in par 3 to tie, but Mrs. Ilurd won the ninth in the same figure to make the turn one up with a medal card 46 to 47. Mrs. Barlow took the tenth in a par 4 through Mrs. Kurd's pulled second, and 'the eleventh was halved in bogey 5. Mrs. Harlow's' third to the pit cost her the twelfth, and Mrs. Hurd 's shot to the whiskers and then to the pit, lost her the thirteenth. The fourteenth was halved in bogey 5, and a perfect 3 gave Mrs. Hard the lead on the 212-yard fifteenth here Mrs. Barlow was trapped on her ,1, ive. If On the sixteenth Mrs. Hurd showed signs of tiring, following up a irood drive with a short second and top ing her third to a trap. Well out in 4 sl"' missed her fifth, was on the green in 6 and holed a 7 against a bogey 5 which tied the score for Mrs. Barlow. On the short seventeenth both players narrowly escaped trouble on their drives, Mrs. Hurd having a bit the worst of it and with an opening to the green, but her approach was short and she required two putts for a 4. Mrs. Barlow's tee shot just missed the trap and she made a fine approach which looked good for a 3, but which she failed to hole, halving in 4. a pull which landed in a pit, the ball ly ing snugly ensconsced in a heel print which took- one stroke to get it into play and another to get it out of thi trap, and these two strokes gave Mrs. Hurd an 8 while Mrs. Barlow required but 6, record ing 46 to 50 for the homeward journey, or a total of 93 to 96 for the round: mrs. barlow Out 57566473 447 In ' 4 5 7 5 5 5 5 4 64693 f I I f ' ' I I' " I V I -k':" 'J NATIONAL AMATEUR CHAMPION OUIMET Perhaps it was only fancy, but I imagined Mrs. Barlow's hand trembled perceptibly as she teed up on the eigh teenth. Mrs. Hurd, I. felt, showed the strain in a certain grim tenseness, but be that as it may, both balls were beauties well down the course. Likewise the seconds, went straight for the-pin. and lay with little advantage. It was' Mrs. Hurd's third shot which lost the match, MRS.
