that we are -'.I human, and, na matter how closely
one may air-roach that type known as the "golfing
ma»l,!ro." he is always llab'.e to flip a ccg. so to

Take, fcr instance-, the wing hazards, referred to
in the previous chapter. They have a more terrify

golfer can gesj only on*- plain basso*] which it is
essential that he should pet arrows, so he plays
with that object paramount. On •■).■■ other hand,
when there ere wing hazards whkh he can see he
is occasionally caught la a certain moos' of doubt,
and in consequence flays the shot in a hesitating
way that generally spells trouble.
Ah H. H. Hilton once pointed out. to a man who
ran drive any respectable length the easiest form
of driving in the world is that In which the player
has a set object to carry, as he concentrates his
mind on that one object and thinks of nothing else.
Moreover, the hazard Itself invariably hides from
vie*- the possibilities, of disaster further afield It
is a fact- that a long, flat hole, one simple look

the course of piny, rifmaliiis a good deal of study.
but it is a study that might to he undertaken by
every one who wishes to act fairly by the game.
"While this is ho, I must also, add the weight of
my humble opinion!, In urging a further revision
and simplification of the rules. At the present thus
a player has not only to digest th. rules of golf,
but he has to gel up a varying number of local
rules applicable to his own particular links— these
local rules being more plentiful on Inland greens,
where the golf course has had practically to be
made, and is not on the Ideal expanses natural to
the coast To my mini, the rule question will not
be placed upon ■ proper basis until the Royal and
Ancient, respected governing 'body, take up a less
exclusive stand on the matter. The matured Intel
lect of the three kingdoms ought to have the privi
lege of exercising a veto on the laws of the game.
with the aim of standardizing a net of -conditions
or ruUa which might govern the game all over the
country, and do away with the necessity of having
these irri wit ins special rules applicable to a par
ticular count-. The aim of the committee of every
club, however, ought .to be- to have the game
played, In their Jurisdiction, as much as possible
on the rules of golf, and. as far as they can. elimi
nate, the. -local rule. But the main point I would
'Mite to emphasize in this article Is . the individual
responsibility of every golfer in the matter ot being
well versed In the law* of the game, and equally
determined to play accordingly, , It la all very, well!
to say that golf Is ; only a pastime to be Indulged;
in, and t that it is not a sari" i business. of life, but
