Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 17, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE SIX OAtY HERALD Vv SATURDAY, UP FATHER1 By G. Me Manns JOST A6K NtCEL.X-AN-L.ET ME WHAT t. I The Sport Page Practice, Different For'a beginner to Improve bis game It is necessary that foe should practice the different-shots he .-wishes to play and, carefully study them beior'e at- tempting to do so. There ara several shots "which require in ore, study than others, and these are I think, the shots to the green. They arc the inost val liable, and it is very important that theyshonld be played with'great ac turacy and jndgtnent. TVhen. going out to practice pick onl an object to play at mark wfl is cot necessary to play on the putting don't play at the same object all change to something else and vary the.distance and-angle, it .teaches you'to judge more correctly. These strokes are verj make the difference b tweeu a good score and a poor, one Different "courses as a _ rule re- quire; different shots to reach the green and the player, must be. very careful aha'pay'attention to what the ground is. like before'ha plays ttie shot, as at first sight he may think ".that, the correct to play'Is a pitch, but on .examining the ground find that ft will him belter to run up. A player cannot be top careful about this hat Is II he wants to obtain the best] results. Theie is no satisfaction In! playing a haphazard sort of same, you may by chance or luck return a good score, but you know that it was not by playing golf that yen did sr> I always tried to Impress on a beginner .0 first learn to play tho shots., he to know before worrying about returning low score; once he has mastered the different strokes, the score Kill. along in good time. No player can expect to improve bts game without practice, and lots of it, but he should not think because he plays 9 or 18 holes every day in the week, racing around the course at break-neck .speed without taking time to consider what shot ho should play or what club he should us a that he Is improving his game. There Is no harm in playing quickly but to be successful the player must, also-think quickly; yet I do not advise young players to hurry to get around the course. Keep your place on tho green by all means but lake your time; he players fol- lowing are in duty bound to wait so long as you don't overdo It BftSEBALl RESULTS Boston......

Several good scores were returned, but the outstanding feature of the.match .was the Tery fine score of 33 for the first round returned by D. 0. Macleod.
