FIVE CENTS
MENDES' MEDAL
Siwanoy Golfer Leads the Record Break
ing Field in Amateur Championship
Christopher II. Jtouerts Play the
Ninth Ilole on the Championship
Couri In One
A record breaking field of 244 con
testants about 60 more than have ever
taken part in this event before as
sembled for the qualifying round of the
North and South, and although the
field dwindled perceptibly in the course
of tho two rounds there still remained
twelve sixteens to qualify for match
play.-
Albert J. Mendes, of the Siwanoy
Country Club, won the medal with a
total of 81-79,160, and was the only
man to break 80 on the second day,
when both the wind and tho scores were
relatively high.
Mendes further distinguished him
self by playing tho 380 yard ninth hole
on Number Three in 2, driving off with
a cleek and sinking his second, made
with the same iron. There appears to
bo no record on this hole having been
made under 3.
Christopher D. Roberts, of West-
hampton, came across with the first hole
in One of the season, sinking his drive
for the ninth, on Number Two. Robert
did not do quite so well on some of the
other holes taking 99 for the remaining
seventeen.
Mendes' victory was a decided sur
prise. Edward Styles led the big field
on the first day with a round of 38-:8,
76, with James D. Standish, Jr., at 78,
and C. G. Waldo, Jr., tied with Frank
lin Gates for third place in the race, at
79. Styles' lead of 2 strokes on the
field looked as big as a house, for his
76 had been mad eon Number Three and
none of the players immediately behind
him had the difficulties of that course
behind them. Mendes, at 81, and Ir
ving Robeson, the north and south
champion, at 82, were the only low score
men who played Number Three on the
first day. Some of the newspaper men
hedged, to the extent of pointing out
that Styles had followed up a 73 on the
Number Three course, in the Open Tour
nament, by two rounds over 80 on Num
ber Two the next day, but we didn't
hear any of them offering odds against
Styles, at that.
THE SECOND 18 HOLES
The North Hills star took an 85, on
Tuesday, on Number Two, but his to
tal of 161 still looked good, as one good
man after another came in without any
shockingly good cards in their pockets,
until Jim Standish turned up with an
83, made on Number Three, and tied
him. Late in the afternoon, after ev
erybody had congratulated everybody
else on the rattling good play off due
to take place between Styles ar.d Stan-
dish, wandered in with his 79 an.l it was
all over.
E. L. Scofield and Howard Phillips
tied for a place in the championship
sixteen each with a card of 87-83, 172
and Phillips won the play off.
C. L. Becker, who had an. 88 on Num
ber Two the first day, negotiated an 85
on Number Three, on Tuesday, and
missed the top sixteen by a single
stroke. Sidney Sharwood and Major
Ranney had mighty good rounds on the
second day also, but their totals tied
them down to the second sixteen.
