NO PUTTS TO BE CONCEDED
One Important Change a a4. A
Jrews Golf Rales.
"No putts shall be conceded."
This is the one marked and important
change In 8t. Andrews' rulea of golf, which
have been adopted for this year by the
Western Golf association. The practice of
conceding putts from two to four feet has
grown t such an extent that a player
who aaks his opponent to hole out hia ball
If It be two or three feet from the hole, la
looked upon as a disagreeable person to
play with. The lawmakers have changed
