Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - July 6, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta r PJ^GE SIX THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY tffiRALD SATURDAY, JULY 6, 19tl BRINGING UP FATHER" By G. McManus Baseball boxing racing SPORT hockey golf bowling Our Handicaps asittsiv (By JSK.) . A\Tien Alexander the Great first lamped the Gonilan Knot, that Inextricable difficulty, ho didn't sit down and try to unravel it; he just picked up a battle-axB or a two-fisted sWord, or'whatever it was they used to muss each other up in those good old days before the^eas shell becsnte the rage, and he cut'it. Thereby setting a handy precedent to our little old Handicapping Committee. When they ran up against a knotty problem they just to6k the same old short cut, and cut and slashed and then published the mults. Just a minute please, while we answer that guy with tlie hiccough. N'o, friend, this Alex, doesn't pitch In the National league, he lived In B.C. No! Not near Vancouver, before there 1 PHONE 733 FOR THE CXK.

You know what happened on tho Glorious First. Some of these guya with the juicy handicaps have been playing under wrops and when tho day for bringing home the bacon arrived, they just threw them off and swatted those pills in a way that would make Chick Evans ^reen with envy. And when the results were known there was sure a surprised bunch of selling platers and the Handicap Committee came in for one fine roaet and they looked about as cheerful as the kids who had lost their movie tickets. Nobody seemed � to have the correct handicap, but what could be expected on a hot day? Afiy-way the bunch evidently got � under the hides -ot that committee- tor 'a hasty conference was called, and they foregathered in the sub-cellar of a closed building and proceejled to vent their spleen, or spill the beans or whatever It is the Lethbrlde Telle eayg when it wants to be real caustic. Then It ^-aa that Alexander's precedent proved a help. They commenced to cut and went through that list of juicy handicaps like a lawn mower over a garden patch and tho result looks like as it they were peeved when they did the work. Talk about being hailed out! Sotbe of tliese golfers lost halt their crop'. But'Oh, Zookee! you ought to hear the roar. If we could only play it on our Victor' It would go - some* thing like this? , '.' "Zowle! Cut me six! What dfd they do to'you? They are a tine Ijunch of pirates! No more playing in handicaps Ibr mine! They can keep their old jewelry! You know me.

Don't these guys know how. to edd? etc.etc!!" Well, we ]UBt want to rise and remark, folks, that Handicap Committee ha� no cinch, and one thing eure, they aren't treating themselves to any points and they are trying to remedy the faults as they aae them-kind of hitting a ixmd wherever It appears above the surface. So forget about betog sore and 'that going^quit stuff. Sure, we will all be down to scratch pretty soon and then tho agony will be over. They aimply will have to lay off our handicaps then they will have worked thomselvee out of a Job. 6ASEBA RESULTS Our ?'7' I i7i7i'rjLj=> Is tho place to send your ma-. chine when something needs attention or you want sup- ^ .plies of any kind.

My opinion Is that as a rule you see better average play than in stroke competitions. A player will play better golf, he will tiike; greater risks, play with more freedom and hit out with more confidence, than he doee In medal play. Besides, If he does have two or-three btid holea, they don't count against him to the same extent. He will probably lose thom, but he need not let that worry or upset him. By playing a bold.stroke at the next one he may win the,.hole and regain his position. The player who is most successful in match play is the one who can forget .a bad hole and play the next just as if nothing had happened. I have alwaya-.waintained that in hole combetitions or Hrlendly inter-club matched yoii see the most brilliant golf.

A good match player will immediately forget It, and start the neit with this' determination ot winning it. He should keep a good grip of the game and go for everything, take a chance on a shot coming oft. and more likely,than, not it will, and he wins the hole.',' ^ used to play a certain holo on one of courses in the Old Country, a rather difficult holo to piny, as you had to, cross a river with your second or third. In S'troko competition tho correct way to play it was, instead ot playing your second straight for the green, you played "It as what thoy called a dog's log hole. You played your second shot to tho river side where you had a clear view of tho green and could reach it with a good thii;d, but in niatch play. If I had a good drive ond got the position played for, I used my brassy, playing straight for tho green, taking the risk ot carrying over the corner ot a field, some tnlrly high trees on tho banks ot tho river, also across the river, and it I did get tho .shot 1 could reach the green in two. Often I did take tho risk, and only once that 1 can remember did 1 fall to got tho shot. Will Get a Chance to See Some cf This Speed Stuff at Fair If you and your opponent are fairly well matched, try to keep him from getting too big a lead from you, push him bard. It you have the pull over him, and get a few holes to the good, watclj that you do not lose them by playing carelessly; one is apt to do so sometimes. Some strange things happen in a game ot IS holes; shoilld he be a longer driver and outdistance you off every tee, don't try to force yourself to drive as far as he does, hit your orcjjnary shot and It may surprise you how little difference there may be between tho two strokes. Unconsciously, you may be hitting a longer drive than you thought possible. 1 did that once when playing iu the final of a holo competition. My handicap wajs four. .My opponent, tho longest driver in the club (a great hitter) was scratch. With six holes to go 1 had lost my four strokes and had to play him level. It was expected he would out-drive me easily, but' he did,not. When we finished my opponent and several ot the members who had watched the game, complimented me on my exhibition ot driving and I was asked how I did It. I told them I could ttot say. I felt like doing it and juat did it, with no extra effort, so far as I was aware. I hope to see a large entry tor this competition. I understand there is to be an entrance fee. Be sure and have your entry in by the end ot the week. The Best White Cooks In tho city are at the Silver Qrill. , You will enjoy tho hot .weather menu served, there.

TheSiiverGrlli Cor. 4th Ave. A Sth St. I remember reading some years ago an article on golf by Braid in which he stated that in medal play (stroke) the player should go,for everything, take greater risks 'than in match (hole) play, but on that point I do not, agree with him, ..brilliant player :a8 he Is, but would put It tho reverse way, and say in stroke competitions play carefully and riak nothing, do not attempt any shots which you might foozle badly, and cause you to take seven or eight .strokes to an ordinary five hole. The result would be disheartening, and you would be unable to forget It. The-thought that if you had only played aafe you would have made it in five, keeps you worrying about it during the rest of the game, and you WxA your play der teriorates. Braid himself had such an experience in the Open Championahlp which he won In 1908, played at Prestwich, Scotland. Playing the 3rd hole, which Is a long and difficult one to negotiate, he got into difficulties with his drive. He risked an almost impossible shot with his brassy, foozled it and got Into more trouble, and required eight strokes to hole out. I did not see him play the Shot, but was at the green when he boled out. The remarks ot the spectators' were anything but compllmento'y to him lor attempting such a shot.' firaid did not seem to be perturbed at all. Yet to me, that Is a point on which I have never been able to satisfy myself, but did think it �shook bin nerves Just a little bit. For at the next hole, a fairly easy one, where it you liU u straight drive from the tee it is an ordinary four holo, cost him five-hja partner did It in tlireo. 1 did it In three the ^following week when I had the privilege of playing over the championship course. Braid was not in difficulties; m fact he was almost on the green v.'Ith his drive,' but lie played tho hole badly, and I will liever believe anything olso, but that taking eight strokes to tho provloi^s hole upset him. From -what I have heard of the scores returned in the ladies' competition, they are good enough to make some ot the male members buck up. The ladles migbt Issue a challenge to playtlvem a match some day.

San Francisco.-Al Greggains. one of the old school ot boxers and who of lato years has been prominently identified with the training of tho younger generation ot ring men, says that the day of scientific boxing has passed. He gives two reasons tor this. According to Qreggaina. the top-notchers ot tho present do not take the trouble to instruct tho promising boys. He cites Peter Jackson, Jack Dempsey and Jimmy Carroll as a trio of tho old-timers who spent much of their time in couching likely looking boys. Secondly, the followers of boxing are demanding more and more action leading to a decisive deflsion, prefnra-bly a knockout. This means, accord-ins to Greggains, that the boys are neglecting their form for tho sake of boring In slambang fashion ir. ho hope of landing a knockout blow and thus keeping in favor with the public.
