The .scribe began to feel i quite pugilistic and even went as far i as asking the champion for the � of two or three strokes.

There is a thrill whi'h accompanies the long flight of a hard hit drive, but according to one old-time.-, it cannot compare with that admiration with which, he a.-d to watch '!:� old "gut-Hes" get away from tu- club, travelling low for maybe 1"" >.i.-ds or more before it -it.'ited its grac fill as a bird.

Another trick of those young fellows was to place a ball a' their feet and with a mashie, well laid back, loft the ball into the air. and leaping quickly, can'a it in the hands before it came lo earth.
