They think anybody could hit a small ball a few yards into a hole; just an old man's 'game. Old man's game? Yes. but not ID the way i'uey mean, for it is aljout the only oat-of-door game played that I know which old as well as young men I play and enjoy. I have played on courses where I have seen youths 17 to 20 and old men, well over tlie al- lotted span ol three-scora and ten years, following each other, and In their own way enjoying their games. Meet these players, after they have played their daily round, aa I have often done, and listen to their, dis- cussions of the various incidents that have happened. If it bad not been for the easy putt missed on the last green, and being hunkered at the far out uols with a perfect mashle pitch, and topping the, drive at the 7th tee where you cross the burn, what wonderful scores would bare been made; all records would have sure been broken and such great exponents of the game as .Jamie iraid, Harry Vardon or Handy Herd, were hardly considered in their iaas. It Is the that make ;he difference between a good rount and a. bad one.
