Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 17, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta The Sport Page Practice Different For a beginner to improve his game It is necessary that he should practice the different shots he wishes to play and carefully study them before at tempting to do There are several shots which require more study than and these are I the shots to the They are the most val and it is very important that they should be played with great ac curacy and When going out to practice pick out an object to play at mark will is not necessary to play on the putting dont play at the same object all the time change to something else and vary the distance and it teaches you to judge more These strokes are very important and make the difference be tween a good score and a poor Different
