Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 15, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta WEDNESDAY, MAY 15, 1946 OUT ON A with LOR1MER FENWICK THIS year the Canadian Open Golf Championship will be at Montreal's Beacons- fieSd Course starting June 27th. just about a month earlier than the usual starting date. Accorcing to Fred Corcoran, president of the American P.G.A.. the earlier date guarantees the presence of at least twice as many United States golf- ers as usual. This news will please golfing fans but will not make the io; of the Canadian pro a happier one. Since the early 1920's Canadian golfers have been striving mightily to annex their own golf champion- ship bus. without success. Bob Gray, colorful Toronto Scarboro pro, came closest, in 1941 when he led through the first three rounds caly to have Sammy Snead overtake lam in the final 18 holes. It- was m this event that Snead hit the longest time in the history of tour- nament golf. It was on Lambton's fifteenth hole, a 550-odd yard affair. With a gallery of at least 2.000 watching him Snead took out his special heavy-weighted driver and hit an unusually hieh ball which landed at the fop of a hill slightly over 300 yards away. The ball, a lovely pre-war job, rolled elegantly clown the fairway, finally stopping within easy approaching distance of the green. Thev measured the drive and found "that it had travelled slightly over Snead then took out a seven iron and plunked the ball within three or four feet of the flag. As expect- ed. he ended up with an eagle three. From that time until the end of the tournament he was un- beatable. Even his putter behaved.

The Red Birds, off to a stuttering start, closed the gap betneea the rao top clubs, to one game yester- day by co-ATiing the Brooks, 7-5, in ll'ianucgs.

The 1945 was Byron Nelson, -who will be favored to retain his title in this year's tournament. Unfortunately, the dates of the Open could not fit in with the tournament schedule of British professionals, attractive induce- ments notwithstanding.
