two days play of six matches won against four trlumplis for the visitors with two matches j in the foursomes and ono in the singles The near rout of the men from overseas came as a pleasant sur prise to the home folk for few of the golf fans of the Islands thought the golden trophy cup symbol of in ternational professional golfing su premacy could be regained although dour Scot George Duncan cap

winners came from behind to register their great triumph after the foursomes yesterday the count stood two matches for the visitors one for the home team and one halved To win the cup which was held by the Americans as a result pf a cleanup In the United States in June 1927 Duncans men had to win five of the singles today They did just that while the Americans were winning two and getting an even break In the other The course was fairly wiped up Viith the golf invaders as they ware J repulsed on all but two fronts with one drawn battle Leo Diegel who is very very good when he is good and Horton Smith the baby of the team rang up the match points for the Americans while Al Espinosa suc ceeded in halving his match As each match scored one point with a half pointto each in halved matches

icans only compensation was Dlegels victory over the veteran Abe Mitchell 9 and 8 and Horton Smiths defeat of another veteran Fred Dobson 4 and 2 It was Dlegels birthday and he celebrated the fact that he had become 30 years of age with more par shattering shots and spectacular scores than the north of England had witnessed in many moons The pro fessional champion of the U S was ten under fours for the 28 holes he played today The other bright moment of the day for the visitors came when Smith who will also have a birthday soon came from behind to win over Robson Smith will be 21 years of age May 22 Smith was one down after 27 holes but he rallied in spec tacular fashion and his opponent old enough to be his father did not win another hole He halved two and Smith won the rest ending the match with a great putt at the 34th hole for a birdie three i British Bookies Offered 104 Odds on U S Even after the contest was decided and it was certain the trophy would remain in Britain for the next two years Al Espinosa and Ernest Whit combe refused to quit a dingdong battle which finally ended all square at the 36th hole giving little satisfac tion to either side but allowing the British to win six matches to four instead of seven to four as seemed likely when the Englishman was dor mie one at the 35th When the Americans were leading two matches to one this morning as a result of the foursomes play yes terday British bookies offered odds of 10 to 4 that Hagens team would Increase the lead and win Instead at the end of the first round of singles matches only Diegel 5 up on Mitchell after a record round of 65 had any advantage Farrell was 6 down to Whitcoinbe Sarazen 1 down to Compston Hagen 5 down to Duncan Turnesa 2 down to Boomer and the remaining three matches square after 18 holes Great recoveries are expected from American golfers over here and there was no great confidence that even at the eleventh hour they would not pull themselves together No gen eral recovery materialized Diegel was practically conceded a victory Cochct Decides to Take Complete Rest for Nearly Month PARIS In tennis form is causing grave concern to French fans and officials as to the safely of the Davis cup in France for 1929 Twice during the past month the ranking number one worlds player for 1928 has met clean cut defeats from the racquets of players whom he previously had spotted a set or two Christian Bossus the slim left hander took Cochets measure at Roubaix on covered courts winning handily In straight sets 64 63 62 Then along came Pierre Landry at Biarritz and Cochet again went down 61 63 62 These defeats hi straight sets to the greatest fiveset player In the world while too radical to be true show that cocky little Henri will have to get seriously down to business if he wants to reach top form for the Davis cup challenge round in July The continued absence from the courts since last October of Rene La cost e and the probability that the crocodile has no intention of sub mitting himself to a severe course of perparatlon Is causing ths French much anxiety With Frances two mainstays in the singles out of form and per haps Lacoste out of competition alto gether Captain Pierre Gillou of the French Davis cup team is showing a lot of gray hair not noticeable in his raven locks last year Cochet has simply gone stale He has played too much continuous ten nis Since opening his 1928 season on the Riviera hi February there has not been a single week excepting those he spent on the high seas that Cochet has not participated in a ten Hold This a While Said Hagen And They Did Walter Hagen leader of the S Ryder cup team asked Major J H Batley secretary of the Great Brit Golf association to hold the am Americanicon cup prior to the en couliter And thats just what Batley did for the British golfers scored a 75 triumph to icin the coveted trophy lilt Hot Trtount Tradimork Ktsllttttt O S ffltMl Ofltlt HtLEN AND GLENNA The question has been asked as to whether Glenna Collett womens golf champion of the United States Is as good n her game as Helen Wills Is at tennis The two games are too far apart too entirely different for the two champions to be compared Golf form Is nothing like as consistent as tennis form Tllden won seven straight tennis championships With the same skill as a golfer he might have been hard pressed to wip three championships m the same seven years It might also be recorded that Helen Wills has no such opposition to face abroad as Glenna Collett will be forced to meet There is no European tennis player who can compare with Joyce Wethereds skill at golf Joyce Wethered is about as hard to beat at golf as Suzanne Lenglen was at tennis when the iatter was at her crest Certainly Helen Wills dominates womens tennis by a much wider margin than Glenna Collett dominates womens golf even in the United States A better tennis player can force his game or her game upon an oppo nent dominating the contest A bet ter golfer cant He can do nothing to prevent an opponent laying a chip shot dead for holing a number of ten or twentyfoot pitfts Golfers not close to Hagens class have beaten Hagen at various times This rarely happens In tennis nis tournament or competition of some sort Henri has divided to take a com plete rest for a month He will re sume practice about the beginning of May to get Into shape for the French hard court championships on May 18 Psychological Effects Play Part In Results of Championship Match Bobby Jones By BOBBY JONES National Amattur Champion In order to fully appreciate what one sees from the gallery at an im portant championship one must have some idea Qli what is going on inf the players mind as he is compiling his score Theav erage observer quite capable ofs understanding andv appreciating fine plays He knows the mechanical difficulties of the game which shots are good and which are bed but rarely do we find a person who never having competed himself is able to experience with the player the ner vous and emotional upheavals which In many cases ultimately determine the result Although the accom plishment of such a thing is far beyond any powers which he may picture for himself the average ma a is still able to admire and not won der at the almost perfect rounds turned in by some of the leaders Buthow one of these men with ap parent command of every shot can suddenly break from a stride of per fect golf Into a gait about keeping step with ladys bogey Is wholly In explicable to him How could anyone who has not played In an open championship find a satisfactory explanation for what happened to me at Oiympla Fields or still worse to Roland Hancock In the same championship I had scored 737173 for the first three rounds and was leading the field by three strokes Beginning the last round the first five holes were passed In one stroke under par The course at Oiympia Is difficult at the start and at the finish but fairly simple hi be tween So when I holed a birdie jthree on the fifth green I was in a particularly happy frame of mind for I considered my troubles were over at least until the fourteenth hole But suddenly everything which had been going so smoothly began to go quite the other way Afive on the par three sixth hole was followed by a badly hooked drive which came to rest immediately behind an evil looking tree 1 am sure ho one among the crowd could to any extent appre late my feelings as I looked at thai jail To those who had playec enough golf to understand the pos Ibilltles of the situation It appearec nly that there must be a chip to afety sa iron to the green and two putts for a five That withthe five in the preceding hole would wipe lut the lead which I had had at the beginning of the round but someone became inspired there was no chance of being worse than even with my closest pursuer 100 AUTOMOBILES NOT to Be Sold at Auction BUT to be sold to dis criminating buyers who to compare values and to

odds against Glen na Collett In the Brtish womens championship are at least 6 to 1 Joyce Wethered isnt the only fine opponent she will have to meet It will be interesting to see how these two American stars make out tor they are the best we have SPORTING SIMILES Dear I call these Sporting Some Similes As wild as odds The late Paul Armstrong had one of the best in describing an old fight viz Sharkey came on like the surf And Cherley Dryden painted a vivid picture In describing the McCoy Placke battle Plackes face looked like a sponge dipped hi gore RUNNING WILD Claude Bracey the Texas flier has been timed In 9 25 for the hundred with a slightly favoring wind George Simpson of Ohio States has been timed this spring hi 9 12 seconds with no wind at all as a favoring supporter a record thet maty be al lowed Those who have seen Percy Williams run are confident he can do 9 25 at his best At any rate there has been enough fast sprint Ing lately to Indicate that the old mark of 9 35 is sure to lowered and this goes for the Simpson mark of 9 12 if it Is allowed Paddock also ran the hundred in 9 12 but official recognition was never grant ed this time Williams Bracey or Simpson should be fast enough to set a new official record before the spring and summer have passed All are young and perhaps short of their best stuff It would be a big event if all three could be gathered In the Ohio relays to be run this week in Columbus where more than one record may be displaced THE NEXT CHAMPION Jack Dempsey bounded to the Loses All Penpectire After Some Disagreeable Mishaps But one loses all sense of proportion in these golf tournaments For the moment the whole world seems to together only upon the hope of whuilng the championship I saw tamediately Instead of the five wklch should have been quite attain able all the terrible things which might happen I felt as though the jpttom had dropped out of every thing and that there was just no need o struggle on The prospective five turned into a six and on each of the next three holes I tossed away an other stroke before I could recover my semblance of balance Possibly it is well that the average person in the gallery does not appreciate the emotions to which the competitors are subject otherwise we should all be regarded as utter fools Senseless though it may be this panic or despondency plays a most important part in tournament golf No player ever collapses because he forgets suddenly how to use his clubs Sometimes the untoward incident kindles the fire Is trivial enough but when aided by a vivid Imagination It quickly gains suffi cient proportions to stampede the al ready overwrought nerves To crack under the stress of such a condition is always humiliating to the player and it lies not with anyone who can The average we are rylng to speak for his benefit and not for his to overlook the main factor that pro duces the punch In his swing This is the speed of the clubhead He seems to think it is the speed with which he throws his hands and jody into the swing They should 3e only accessories helping to de velop the speed of the clubhead On the majority of occasions about eight out of hamper and check the speed of the clubhsad In place of helping It One of the main details hi golf is not to check this clubhead speed That is why so many instructors will advise to let the clubhead do more work If the hands go rushing in they wilt take over most of the Job and leave the clubhead behind If the body goes rushing In beyond its proper place it will also leave the clubhead behind The body hss a ihorfc arc in which to move The hands have a longer arc But the clubhead like the cuter rim of a wheel has a far greater distance tc travel and It must be allowed to pick up increasing speed as it gathers mo mentum Hand and body hurry are sure to interfere with this increasing clubhead speed Having a shorter distance to travel they dont have to be in any hurry to cover the neces sary distance The main idea Is to have that club head ripping through the ball at maximum speed This cant be at tained if the body weight Is oat of balance It cant be attained with a tight grip and stiff wrists It cer tainly cant be reached when the body weight is on the left leg and foot at the top of the swing as it so often Is The main punch starts from the right leg and right foot and that is where the main body weight must be at the top of the back swing Bobby Jones says he has a feeling of shoveoff from the right foot Just before he hits the ballBut his weight is coming forward with the ahead and not too far back of the swing but supporting the swing The main problem of golf Is to build up clubhead speed on through the ball For a fast traveling club head Js almost certain to be travel ing in ihe right line It is when out side Interference Is appliid that the right path Is by outside In terference we mean hurried hitting head lifting Incorrect body position or balance Incorrect use of the body Is the bane of the average golfers existence It is neariy always preventing the hands and arms from swinging the club with the necessary speed It is nearly always In the way or else being rigid and full of tension Is locking the action of the arms watched a well known Instructor are doing all your swinging with the body If you had the end of your club sluck Into your body you could hit the ball a mile The pupil may have thought that remark was large ly exaggeration but it was all true The hands and arms on the down swing says Jock Hutchison must be swung independently of the body Yet with most golfers the arms are locked to the arms by rusty wrists It would be something of a help if most golfers could get a mental picture and think in terms of clubhead speed Their mistakes are not what they leave out of the swing bub all the extra checks they put into it These consist mainly In body interference and an attempt at extra effort Smoothness and effort can only be combined by the by the average or even the nearly first class player Indlstlnglishable as the next heavyweight champion As cynical as a caddy talking it over with contemporaries voracious as Damon Runyoni Champion Eaters As redundant as a sports writer As raw as an immigrant heavy weight As unrccordable as a divot diggers Invectives not understand to censure him Most working with a pupil lately You ot those who criticise
