FIVE CENTS
CHAMPIONSHIP IN FULL SWING
Amateur Professional and Open Events
Inaugurate Pinelmrst's Classic
National Champion Ouimet In II rig-lit
and Particular Star With
Sensational Medal Hound
THE " United' ' Cham
pionship swung wide
open on Friday last
with the amateur-professional,
four-ball, best
ball event, and never a
dull moment has there
been since; final rounds
of the Amateur Champ
ionship in progress as we go to
press. Yes, it has been some week, but
next week the story! If The climax of
opening play was a winning one hundred
and thirty-seven for Amateur Champion
Francis Ouimet and Donald J. Ross, two
strokes in the lead of Henry J. Topping
and Tom Macnamara with cards of 70
l?7 and 73 G6, and the crisis of play was
the afternoon round with the victors fully
aware of what was necessary for them
to do to win.
Making the turn in thirty-four with
two 5's, three 4's and four 3's on their
t-ard, Ouimet and Ross raced home in
thirty -three with seven 4 's, one 3 and a 2
for a winning total of thirty-three. The
limax of play was very naturally the
homeward journey, the first four holes in
par and the fourteenth in one under par
on a screaming putt by Ouimet. A
pulled tee shot on the fifteenth put the
Champion out of the running, but Ross
awoke the echoes with a thrilling 2. The
fifteenth was an easy par 4 and likewise
the seventeenth a 3 where with good luck
Ouimet might have recorded a 2 on an
off-the-green stab.
Ouimet 's tee shot on the eighteenth
;is side by side with his partner, and
iron at the green over-ran to the
siiiid adjoining the caddie quarters, but
pushed up dangerously close and ran
down a 4. If The cards:
