Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 29, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta The Sport Page "Ghick" Evans Tells bf James Braid, the Great Scotch Golfer By "Chick" Evans. Nert to Harry VaTdon, I- ttlnk that James .Braid Is more talked of in this country than any other player from the other Bide. Few American or "Canadian golfers have ever actually seen the interesting 'Scotchman in action. Back in 1911 I went to Britain to ])Iay in the 'ojpen championship, -and there, for the. first time, met James Braid, J who was then the bolder of th6 tlUe. John BsOl and t pliyed Braid and Massy in the anfateur and professional'match at Sandwich. Braid won both' the matches and my earnest ad-xairation. I do not care- SO" much ' for Mr. Braid's style' of play as> I do for Harry Vardon's. nor-do'I believe in all the. soli ideas which the canny Scot ad- MAUTO TIRES OF ALL SIZES VULCANIZED By the Famdna Haywood SyatUK RE-TRBAOING & REPAIRINQ By Etperienced Workmen.

Braid is strong in every department of golf' with th^j possible exception of driving, and I believe he excels all his rivals in his uncanny skill in placing his shots so the ball will be in the best possible position for thet next stroke. As I watched JameaBraid sternly studying his ball I was. impressed with the con-traist hettveen .Ms ratier rugged style Jand the,emoSte,-easy, play ot Vardon.* Both players are mechanically perfect in their stance and swing and InJ the rhythm and timing of their strokes but Vardon does it all gracefully, while BralU has more of a rough kind of'preolslbn that, however nngraceful it may appear to the eye, certainly, gets the result he is after. Win or. lose, Jimmy Braid's serious expression does not change. He is unassuming and modest In victory, and in defeat he Ja a good loser and a real/sportsman. Braid has a 'nnmbqr of years of golfing life ahead of him, for. according to the records, he is now but 48 years ol^ and when 'the close of the war permits isi resumption of the British championships I rather think Jinlmi6 Braid,: bur bfest beloved Scot, and'five times champion, will be beard from again.    �  * * HOWEVER DID CALGARY n OiiKOwn rorr'^soonaenl) LUCKY STRIKE.

"I believe," said Larry, "that I was the greenest busher that ever broke into the major leagues. ;I thought McGraw, Dah-len and AIcGann were reg'ylar jnan-eaters. and I was almost afraid' . to open my mouth on the Polo Grounds. Also, I was more easily kidded than most bushers. I remembered a fine stringing hon Ritter, who was then catching for Brooklyn, ' gave me. Shortly after I joined the Giants' we went ^ver to Brooklyn for a series and opened it with a doubleheader. Between games Ritter came over and began to talk to me. "'Where did you come from, kid?' he asked. I told Bim Springfield. '"What did you bit?' was his next qnestipn. When T told hlm,.;he said: " 'Wfill, I don't wonder .you stand up there well. What do jfbu llke> to hit?' h6 went on. I told hini that, ibo. and after that I told him to; what ffeld I generally hit. Before he got through with me he sure had the 'low dojvn' on me. He knew just what to call ior when I went to bat and every player on the Brooklyn club knew where* to play for me.
