GOLFERS GET 3 BIRDIES
TOGETHER AT SAME HOLE.
PINEHUR8T, Jan. 23. The
championship course here hni
been the aoene of many unusual
exploits with wood and Iron, but
never has such n flock of sharp
hooting developed that flashed
out In a special mstoh yesterday
when three birdies were mad at
the same time and at the same
hole. The occasion was an exhi
bition match between George
Frotheringham of Vermont and
Herbert Lagsrblads, Youngstown,
two pros, against Emmet French,
who captained the American pro
fessional team in England last
year and Charlie Mother-sole of
Weeburn. The trio of birdies
came at the long fifth hole, par
five, where Frotherlngharn,
Mothersole and French reached
home in four strokes.
French and Mothersole an
nexed four birdies' on the round
and scored- a best-ball card of
34-35.69, but finished two down
to the opposing team.
What was probably the first
birdies registered at the tenth
hole by a woman was made by
Mrs. Herman Ellis, who scored
a fine three on the 323-yard up
hill tenth hole. Mr. Ellis
landed within six feet of. the cup
on her second shot and oleverly
ran down the necessary putt.
