It was the most surprising North and
South Tournament ever. Albert J.
Mendes, a dark horse, played a 380
yard hole in 2 in the qualifying round
and then proceeded to prove it wasn't
just a fluke by winning the medal
against a record field of 244 contest
antsa field that included some of the
best. Most of the favorites in the
Championship Sixteen were relegated to
the consolations in the first match
round. The best golf of the entire tour
nament was played in the Second Six
teen. And Ned Beall came back and
came through with a surprisingly easy
final victory over F. C. Newton, of
Brokline, in the final contest.
THE FIRST MATCH ROUND
"When we had partially recovered from
the series of shocks that comprised the
first day of match play we wrote to
the papers complaining about it Our
telegram to The Sun got lost in the
wild of Virginia and was still going
up when The Sun was coming down
so we will fish it out of the limbo of
forgotten things and print it here in
stead, an follows. Easy.
To quote the terse if inelegant gener
alization heard on all sides this after
noon, everybody got licked. Four of the
five men who qualified at the head of
the list lost their first round matches;
and of the lower qualifiers F. C. New
ton, of Brookline, and Ned Beall, of
Uniontown, were the only likely candi
dates to come through with a win.
It is doubtful that any tournament
day in recent years produced so many
surprises as were crowded into this
particular match round.
The upper sixteen used the Number
Albert J. Mendes, the medallist, play
ed against Dickenson Bishop, of Dowa
giac, and lost by 3 and 2. Bishop's
usual game is around 90 but he quali
fied with two 84 's and did even better
in today's match. Two Stymies cost
Mendes a win on one hole and a halve
Edward Styles, who qualified a stroke
behind the medallist, was defeated by
Robeson, at the nineteenth hole.
James D. Standish, Jr., who tied with
Styles in the qualifying round, went
down to defeat at the hands of Wim
berly Bowman, a local youngster of
seventeen. Bowman won by 1 up, with
the help of a 20 foot putt on the home
Franklin H. Gates, who qualified 2
strokes from the top, was the only one
of the leaders to win his match. Gates
played against Donald Parson and both
finished around 80. Gates won by the
simple process of laying Parson a dead
stymie on each of the four putts that
he missed in the course of the round.
C. G. Waldo Jr. who qualified 2
strokes behind Gates, was "defeated by
J M. Wells, losing by 3 and 2.
F. C. Newton, of Brookline, went out
in 38 against F. S. Danforth, of North
Fork, and won by 8 up and 7 to play.
Ned Beall, of Uniontown, who came
in just behind Newton on Tuesday,
won his match. Beall defeated Lou
Hamilton, of Garden City, by 1 up.
George A. Dixon, Jr., of the Nation
al Links, played against Howard G.
Phillips, of Moore County, and won by
3 and 2.
The match between Styles and Robe
son was the best contest of the day.
Robeson started out by winning the sec
ond and third holes, in par, but Styles
came right back and evened things up
wih winning birdies on the: fourth and
fifth, and made himself 1 up by taking
the sixth in 3. The long seventh was
halved in 6, and the eighth and ninth
were halved in threes, Styles reaching
the turn, 1 up, in 37, while Robeson had
Waldo. Sr., and J. D. Chapman also
went 19 holes, the decision going to
Waldo at the extra hole. The longest
match of the day was staged in the
fifth sixteen, where E. P. Richardson,
of Monoosnock, won from H. C. Phil
brick, of Brae Burn, at the 21st hole
of a see-saw contest.
SECOND MATCH ROUND
Irving S. Robeson, the title holder,
was put out . of the running by Ned
Beall, in the second round. Beall won
by 4 up and 2 to play and survived
in company with J. M. Wells, of Ken
ilworth. F. C. Nwton and Franklin
Gates, came through in the other brack
et. The upper divisions played on the
Number; Three course but the medal
scores in the important matches were
Robeson went out in 38, in his match
with Beall, and was 2 up at the turn,
but the Uniontown golfer then got busy,
won the tenth, squared the match with
a winning birdie on the twelfth, took
the lead with another birdie on the thir
teenth, and won all the rest of the holes
up to the finish of the match at the six-
Edward C. Beall, of Uniontown, sinks the winning putt in the North and South.
And F. C. Newton, of the Country. Club, the Runner Up.
Coming in, Styles took the tenth, in
par, and won the eleventh with his third
birdie of the round. Robeson was then
3 down, but won the next hole. Both
played the thirteenth poorly, breaking
even, and then halved the fourteenth,
in 4, which gave Styles a fourth bir
die for the day The fifteenth was
halved, in 3, and Robeson reduced his
disadvantage to 1 down by taking the
difficult sixteenth in par 4. The seven
teenth also went to Robeson, in 3, and
the eighteenth was halved with a pair of
long putts, leaving the match all even.
Styles had a great drive, for the
nineteenth, but followed it up by bury
ing his ball in the loose earth on the
side of a trap, on his second shot, and
taking three more to get on the green,
Robeson winning the hole and the match
with an easy 5.
E. L. Scofield and Sidney Sharwood,
favorites for the Governor's trophy in
the second sixteen, both came through
all right, Sharwood, defeating II. S.
Doty, of Hudson River, 5 and 3, while
Scofield won from Tom Morrison of
Oakmont, at the 19th hole. C. G.
teenth. Beall played out the bye holes
and finished the second and worst half
of the round in 37.
J. M. Wells defeated George A. Dix
on , Jr., of the National Links, by 4
and 3. Wells went out in 36, playing
each of the nine holes in 4. He canie
near slipping up on his usual 4 on the
par 5 eighth hole, but his opponent
came to the rescue by knocking Wells'
ball into the cup when trying to over
come a stymie. Wells was 4 up at
the turn and took things easier coming
home, playing the last nine holes in 40
for a 76.
F. C. Newton went around in about
80, without over exerting himself, in
his match with Dickenson Bishop, and
won by 5 and 3.
Frank Gates had to go the nineteeth
hole, to win against young Wimberly
Bowman, who defeated Jimmy Stan
ish in the first round. Gates was 2
up at the sixteenth but lost the next
two holes. The winner went a round in
39-40, 79. Bowman had an 82 includ
ing a 7 on he way out and an 8 on the
Several of the best golfers in the
tournament disported themselves in the
consolation section. Edward Styles
went out in 37, against Lou Hamilton
of Garden City, and won by 3 and 2.
C. G. Waldo, Jr., defeated Howard G.
Phillips, by 5 and 4. A. J. Mendes
the medallist, was eliminated by Frank
S Danforth, of North Fork, a putt
from the edge of the green being the de
ciding factor. James D. Standish, Jr
Avas beaten by Donald Parson, who won
by 4 and 2.
Scofield and Becker came through to
the semi finals in the upper bracket of
the second sixteen and Capt. A. T.
Roberts and Sidney Sharwood survived
in the lower frame. Becker won
against R. A Stranahan, in accordance
with his usual custom. We don't know
how he does it, for the Toledo expert
puts it all over Becker on the way to
the long holes and had been busy
gathering in trophies in Florida for
some weeks past.
The longest match of the day, the
tournament and the season, was staged
in the fifth sixteen, where G. Wyman
Carroll, Jr., of Norwich, won against
Dr. J. S. Brown, of Montclair, at the
23rd hole. Carroll was 5 down to the
Doctor at one stage but finally won
out with a long putt for a par 3 on the
fifth extra hole of the contest.
THE SEMI FINALS
The Semi Finals were played on the
Number Two course, in all divisions,
Newton and Beall surviving the ordeal
in the championship sixteen.
Newton came through by defeating
Frank Gates, by 2 and 1. Gates was 1
up at the turn, owing to his winning
one hole by getting trapped and then
stymying his opponent on his out New
ton saved himself from further loss, at
the thirteenth, by going down in par,
from the edge of the green, and squared
the match at the fourteenth. He then
won the fifteenth, 3, and took the difli
cul sixteenth in par 4, after driving into
a trap and just getting out. Hi third,
a 200 yard iron shot, came to rest a few
inches from the cup. The match end
ed with the halving of the seventeenth.
Ned Beall played against J. M. Wells
of the Kenilworth Club, and won by 2
;uid 1. The Uniontown golfer went out
in .".7 and was up at the turn. Hs
drive for the blind eighth hole was dead
to the pin, for a 2. and he had another

ball into a trap and then holed out with
a conventional brassie shot, just like
