Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - July 17, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE SIX THE LETHBL^^E DAILY HERALD WEDNESDAY, JULY 17, 1918 BRINGING UP FATHER" .....f By G. Mc Matins V ! !F 1 FAR THE FRONT DOOR -VM bAFE- bO- TR>(\Nr�0 PA\0 FIFTN DOLUAR'a DOC comel HEReTI The Sport Page THE STYLES OF GOLF Professional, Amateur , and Clearly Defined Woman's Method Are Noticeable New York.-TherR are three styles of playing golf-a distinctly professional one; an amateur style, and a clearly defined woman's style. The professionals as a general rule start the game with the two greatest advantages In their ravor-youth and good men to imitate-when at the most imitative time of their lives. In almost every case they have begun as caddies, and In the considerable intervals between carrying the clubs they have probably been occupied in swinging any sort of weapon, and playing balls up to monstrous holes cut out of any kind of turf. The professional spends the early years of his life in what is practically nothing but approaching. The amateur, on the other hand, starts principally with the idea of hitting a long way-whether as a boy or a veteran. It Is not until much later In his golf career that he begins somewhat to discount mere driving, and to realt'e that a great and essential part of golf Js playing up to the hole, a matter on (Which he spent very little cam and thought at first. Big Distinction. Broadly speaking, the professional play;3 with his wrists, the amateur with his body. Of course, the "pro's" THE PALACE GARAGE AND REPAIR SHOP QUICK AND SATISFACTORY % REPAIRS.

The amateur, as a rule, starts at the wrong end. and although he diligently tries to use his wrists, it is only a part of his swing and not ag tho essential without which the rest , is largely wasted labor and effort. That is why amateurs push out their shots, hook, slice and all manner of things, because they started to try to run before they could walk, and they endeavor to use the body before learning to manage the club with the wrists. The control nuisT" be from the wrist and not from the body, and as long as the cart is allowed to drive the horse, so long shall golfers lose balls, matches, and tempers, because they are trying to achieve the end without the necessary antecedent means. Example Given. To prove the truth of this, one has only to watch two recruits, one of whom has been an athlete and the other who Has not. The former may swing the club somewhat clumsily, but he .will swing it to some purpose; he finds no difficulty whatever. in making at least a valiant effort to hit the fall a long way. On the cither hand, the non-athletic individual more often than not hasn't the faintest idea of how to place himself in position in order to hit the ball; and even when he. is placed by his instructor in a more or less correct attitude he will be found singularly wanting in the knack of knowing how to take the weapon back. Hitting Stationary Object. What chiefly appeals to the athletic recruit of the game is the extraordinary complicated difficulties of a sport which at first sight appears so simple. To hit a moving ball requires Quickness of eye and moreover quickness in motion; hitting a stationary ball requires neither of these attributes and is therefore a task which would appear to be comparatively simple. But it is this very simplicity which serves to deceive the would-be player, and at first he can not understand why, with everything In his favor, he fails to hit the stationary object. It is Just this difficulty which i.s mainly responsible for so many devotees of other pastimes deserting their old loves and taking to the comparatively sober game of golf, which at one time they were inclined to look down upon as unworthy of the consideration of a "real athlete."

M*INTOSH IS NOW JOURNALIST. Australian Fight Promoter Owner of . Five Newspapers. Honolulu, T.H.. July it.-Hugh D. Mcintosh, member of the Australian legislature, who prompted the'Burns-Johnson fight for tho world's title, passed through hero recently "on his way to London.  "I am going as president of the British Empire league In Australia on government businiiss," s^ SIcIntosh. "I am ojit of the tight game for good and have become a newspaper proprietor. I own five papers now, including the Roferoe." Mr. Mcintosh is also delegate from Australia to tho convontipn of tho Associated Advertising Clubs of Am erica in San Francisco. Sweet Grass-sure, you know whore that is-has been complaining that it couldn't find a ball team to tangle with. The plaint of the home-town fans was voiced in this manner in Tho Advocate of Sweet, Grass lait week: " 'It sure is a tough proposition,' says Manager McKenzie. " 'We have a real ball club this year and no place to go. Cut Bank says 'no, nothing doing,' and so does Shelby.' "And "Shorty" Is right. Milk River has tried it three times this year with imported players, and each time failed to tut the mustard, while Foremost received a jolt on the Fouith that was hard for them to swallow. Jayhawker so far has been the only team of any consequence which has made the local nine get out and step. "But "Shorty" is no quitter, and has challenged the entire province of Alberta and they will be here Sunday. Naturally they will bring along a bunch of rooters. Now. if there is anyone who does not know what tho meaming of war is, just watch a few American and Canadian fans mix it, and that is what will happen Sunday. Bring your "noise" along tor you will need it." The big game was staged on Sunday with Milk River and a few of the Vulcanites representing All Alberta. The result was awful. Sweet Grass scored 10 runs-enough for any ball game-^^while the Alberta combination plied up only 33. through 10 rounds. By their own actions they slew the gooso that,was laying the golden eggs for them. The public forgets somo things easily-fight fane haven't forgotten what raw deals tho boxers gave them-and the game has gone on tho flooit, perhaps to remain that way ad Infinitum.
