Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 20, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta MONDAY, MAY OUT ON A wtj x LIMB with LOKIMER FENWICK ODAY we have a little golf story for jou which was forced uoon us the other night by a friend of ours teas iust returned from, overseas. We found it to be quite interesting so we will pass it on to you. It is a true storv, by the way. I: seems that a fellow called Hjughr, an EagSiih golf professional and one-time assistant to Henry Couoa. was playing in a golf HJUT- ESKLent when he helped make a sJioi which is still talked anon; br saucer-eved golf addicts. 8- Knight, a long bitting golfer, really poled one out on the hole in Question, a par five affair about 530 yards long. The ball, slightly hocked, ended up in the short grass er 300 yards away. His next shot was a beautv and landed on the green, hit the flag, and bounced back ending up hanging precari- caslv on the 11? of the cup. The ball, as we said, was hanging on the Up of the cup and remained there after one of the caddies re- moved the flag. While all this was going on a fat bird, whose identity has never been revealed, sitting in the bushes surrounding the green watching the ball and smacking his bin greedily. It was then that the remarkable" event occurred, dime out while everyone bates their breath.) Suddenly the fat fowl shot. out of ihe bush and headed for ins gleam- !ng white pellet. Whether he tried to pick it up, no one knows, but he Instead he knocked it into the hole, "much to the amazement of the onlookers- It was decided after some bickering that Knight would be allowed to credit himself with a two, which, was three under uar for the hole or an albatross. An albatross is ths Knglish term for what we call a double eagle. It Is hard to tell -whether the bird was intending to eat the ball or whether he was employed by Knight. The argument will never be settled as the feathered onlooker has refused to talk. At any rate the Incident proves that a bird in the bush is worth two in the hand, and not the other way around. A BIT OF EVERYTHING Officials of the Gait Miner Base- ball Club are convinced they have a real winning team this jear. one capable of giving any team in the province more than enough trouble remember you'll be able to see the team in action this Friday when they take on the Picture Bntte squad and it should be a good game as the Butte boys always dish up good baseball The Montreal Royals now have three negroes plaving for them Jackie Rob- inson, John Wright, end the roost recent addition, Roy Partlow. 30- year-old .pitcher from Philadelphia, Some people say that an ath- lete's life is over as soon, as he reaches 30 Ted Lyons, pitcher of the Chicago White Sox, Is 45.
