Wood Piatt Shoukl Make Good
Showing in British Golf Tourney
By CHARLES "CHICK" EVANS.
NATIONAL AND WESTERN 60LF CHAMPION OF -THE UNITED STATES.
(Copyright. 1921, by UnlTfrjal Serricc. Inc. )
J. Wood Platt'is one of our young players older than Bobbie Jones,
tyit still very young. He has held no great honors and won neither of our
big championships, but careful observers of his game have prophesied
that he will hold both at no very distant date. He comes from Philadelphia
and holds a' fine record in that city where competition is keen and so many
good golfers arc being' developed.
I do not think that I had ever
seen him play until,, the . national
amateur at Oakmont, near Pitts
burgh, and I was struck by the ex
cellence of his game. He is noted
for the quickness of his playing,
and in that ' respect he might 'be
called the George Duncan of Ameri
can amateur golf. The 1919 national
amateur was the first "in which he
had ever qualified and he distin
guished himself by defeating no less
a player than Francis Ouimet. He
is a particularly fearless golfer with
a wonderful match playing ability.
Mr. Piatt did not quite come up to
sanguine expectations at Roslyn last
year, but he playsd well enough
over that difficult course to justify
the fine enthusiasm of his friends.
He was beaten by Xed Allis of Mil
waukee, who is a very good player,
and he put out the then champion,
S. Davidson Herron. That is a
pretty good record in only two na
I can see no reason why this in
Table Rock Enjoys .
Table Rock, Xeb., May -12. (Spe
cial) The Ideal theater of Table
Rock was crowded to its ' utmost
capacity by a scries of sporting events
which were pulled off under the aus
pices of the - American Legion of
Table' Rotk. .
The first event was a three-round
boxing match between Cecil Horton
and Hollis Burow, two local lads of
the Table Rock High school, who
made things lively for a time, and
stood . even at the end. of the bout.
Next came a wrestling match between
Harland Taylor and Edwin Freeman
in which the- latter won in 6 minutes
40 seconds. ' '
Next event was three-round boxing
match between the Jones brothers,
Orville and Glenn. To have seen
them yon would not have thought
they were brothers, as they waded in
from the sound of the gong to the
finish. Next came a- one-fall wres
tling bout between Joe Branck and
Gleen Kent, in which the former won
in 8 minutes. -
But the main event of the evening
was the wrestling match between
Charles Blecha, a Table Rock boy
who has made for himself a wide rep
utation in athletic circles as a wres
tler, and Jess Marlin of Auburn, one
oi the best wrestlers in Nebraska, and
who has won 27 .matches out of 30.
at Auburn. ' Marlin won the first fall
in 8 minutes 10 seconds, with a head-
scissors bar lock. Blecha won the
second in 9 minutes 10 seconds,, with
a punishing toe hold. Marlin sus-'
tained injuries that f tit him out of the ,1
match and he conceded the matcn to

Johnston, third-sacker of the Brook
teresting, youthful, very blond
golfer, who sailed into - prominence
by defeating Francis Ouimet the
first time he ever played in a national
amateur tournament, should not
make a good showing in Britain.
His fine game, good health and
sturdy self-reliance ought to carry
him far in any golf event, whether
in this country or across the sea.
Frcd Wright is a very!-, young
player whose achievements in junior
golf are better known in the east
than in , the west. He is compara
tively new to national golf, but he
went out in 34 at Roslyn last year,
and anyone who can make 34 at
Roslyn belongs in tne very best
class.' He tied with Bobbie Jones
for low score at Roslyn, but was
rather-badly beaten by Bobbie in the
third round of the same event.
' All who have seen him play speak
highly of -his game, and his future
looks roseate. His chances in the
coming British event are as good as
Wins Close Game
"Fritz" Hansen of Central
Pitches Excellent Ball
Smith Still Undefeated.
The Creighton base ball nine de
feated Central High 'yesterday for
the second time this season at Miller
Park by a 3 to 1 score. The game
was featured by superb pitching by
both Hansen of Central and Smith
of Creighton.. -
Hansen allowed only six hits and
struck out 18 men. His support was
faulty at times. While Smith's hurl
ing was not equal to Hansen's, he
received errorless support. He al
lowed the Central men seven bingles
and whiffed 17 batsmen.
Hansen pitched himself out of a
bad hole in the second inning when,
with the bases full, be fanned three
men in a row. ' Clement registered
Central's lone tally ;n the fourth
inning, when he hit safely, and scor
ed on hits by Hughes and Way.
Creighton scored one run in each
of the last three innings. Sofio made
a run "in the fifth on a freak play
and an , error. - McAullof scored a
run in the sixth on a walk and a hit
by , Redmond. Creighton scored
again in flic seventh on hits by Glica

New Golf Ball Can't Check
Champions Duncan and
What is the future of golf driving?
was a frequent question after the
efforts of George Duncan,' the
British open champion, and Abe
Mitchell, to out-distance each other
in their first meeting of the present
season which took place on Jthe
Camberley Heath course, Surrey, on
April 6. 'They played wifli the new
Careful observers made it that
their average full drives measured at
least '280 yards. They were turning
holes of 300 yards into one-shot
holes, or, at any rate, holes that de
manded no more than a tee snot and
a little run up. Some of these drives
were made against a mild breeze,
and others with it.
Some examples may be given. At
the sixth (297 yards) both were
nearly on the green from the tee, and
Mitchell got down a putt of . five
yards for a 3. At the 12th (316 yards)
both drove to within 35 yards of the
pin, and Duncan holed a putt of two
yards for a 3, Mitchell missing one
of less than a yard ior the same
Drives Green of 304 Yards.
At the 15th (304 yards, against the
breeze) Mitchell hit a low, skimming
drive over the broken ground and
heather to the near part of the green
and got down a putt of two yards
for a 3.
At the 16th (313 yards, with the
breeze), Mitchell drove fully 290
yards into the'fcmgh hollow in front
of the green. To think, remarks the
London Mail, that in the days of the
gutta-percha ball, less than 20 years
ago, holes of such length would have
called for a full iron shot after the
best of drives! The officials of the
club had no doubt as to the ac
curacy ot the measurements ot the
holes. They had been taken properly
by surveyors with chains.
s And yet some say there is no need
of a slower ball!
An Unsolved Problem.
Duncan and Mitchell made it
clearer than ever that the ball of the
new restrictions a maximum weight
of 1.62 ounces and a minimum diam
eter of 1.62 inches has not achieved
the purpose. And curiously enough,
said the London critic, the well
known amateurs who plaved with a
light ball at Sunningdale found that
they lost very little distance through
it. bo that the solution to the prob
lem of driving distance seems to be
as far off as ever.

years, and, then when the playing
tactics of the game were revised
and the tournament made an open
affair, more out-of-town "slickers"
came to Omaha to try their luck at
winning the title.

for four years, Cahn lost it to
