THE Tin Whistle
Tournament held
this week was
straight medal play
in two classes. It
took place Tuesday
on Number One
Course, and witnessed the advent
of a number of new and welcome
arrivals. W. H. Thayer of Brae
Burn tackling the Pinehurst game
for the first time this season,
came within a stroke of tieing up
the leader, and made as good a
gross score over the course as
was recorded this day. E. D.
McCabe of Brooklyn and George
T. Dunlap, the publisher hailing
from Canoebrook, took their
places in the first division, and E.
M. Slayton of Woodland, who
discovered Jessie Guilford, W.
L. Baldwin, A. P. Alley, Dr. C. P.
Wilson and F. G. A. Fayen, were
recruited into the second.
It was not a good Pinehurst
day, being raw and blustery, mak
ing the going poor. C. L. Becker
proved the steadiest and hardiest
player of the club under these
conditions, and took the" trophy
with a net score of 77, one better
than Thayer. R. C. Shannon of
Brockport and Tom Kelley from
Southern Pines climbed in just
behind with 79.
One man showed his mettle and
contempt for adverse conditions,
and not only made his usual round
but improved upon it, rough
weather or no. That was James
Barber of Englewood, who
jumped to the lead of the second
dvision with three strokes to
spare, and a fine card of 72. E.
M. Slayton did Dr. M. W. Marr
out of second place by a stroke or
two, although both the doctor and
F. C. Abbe of Bethlehem came in
under eighty.
