Golfers Give Much Credit to
Colonel F. E, rlobbs for Efforts
In Entertaining Players.
VISITORS LEAVE THE " CITY
Meeting One "of Best in.History of
Association, They Say Some Com
ment on Week's Events.
The tournament of the Western
Golf association, which closed Satur
day at Rock Island arsenal, was one
of the most successful ever held by
the association. Much of the success
of the meeting was due to the pains
taking efforts of Colonel F. E. Hobbs,
president of tlie club. No effort was
spared by Colonel Hobbs and the of
ficers of his staff to make the tourna
ment a success, and they made it their
duty to attend to the many little de
tails' which count so much in the suc
cess or failure of such an event as
that of last week. The members of
the local association feel greatly in
debted to Colonel Hobbs. The visit
ors, too, showed their appreciation of
ihe many courtesies he extended in a
personal and official way, and depart
ed expressing heartiest thanks to him
and through him to the club. He en
tertained a large number of the vis
itors, and at all times looked after
the comfort ami convenience of the
Here's what J. G. Davis says in the
Chicago Tribune of the entertainment
of the visitors here:
"Altogether the tournament was" one
of the most successful in the history
of the event and not a li-tle of the
fciiccess is due to the officials of the
Kock Island Golf ciub, notably Colonel
Frank E. Hobbs, its' president. The
visiting golfers were given most hos
pitable treatment by the colonel and
ether officers on the island and by the
ciii officials and members of the club.
The course is one of the most pictur
esque and diversified in the country
and the V.'. G. A. officials and contest
arts will have a kindly regard for the
club when next it feels disposed to
rpply for a to.urnament."
John D. Cady was an important man
in the tournament, in more ways than
one. In the first place he engineered
the campaign that landed the meeting
lor Rock Island, and he has been very
active iu looking after the details of
the arrangements. He entertained a
number of the Chicago visitors. And
yet he was able to play a sufficiently
good game to reach the semi-finals.
Cady had to battle for his place in
the race, -and his opponents in every
one of the match games but one dur
ing the week kept him struggling for
the victory for more than the regula
tion number of holes. He started off
by playing Ardo Mitchell a 19 hole
match the very first morning of the
match play. Then he won the next
from Chandler Egan In les than the
required 18 holes. But Thursday's 36
hole match with A. B. Lambert was a
37 hole contest, and he kept up the
battle with H. W. Allen in the semi
final for 38 holes before he finally was

"A. Few Laat Word, -
The only, trophies falling to the
local club in the tournament were the
silver medal for J. D. Cady as a semi
finalist, and those to Decker French
and Ardo Mitchell as winners of the
two-ball foursome of Friday.
; Practically all of the visitors have
departed for iheir homes. Some left
soon after the qualifying round, and
the majority departed Saturday even

Chandler Egan, who was defeated
by J. D. Cady, went from here to Chi
cago, and Saturday he broke the
course record . of the Skokie links,
playing for Exmoor in the match with
Skokie. He made the round in 73,
the same score as his best here. Had
he been in good form here he should
have shown more of that 73 caliber,
The next meeting of the directors
of the association will be in January,
when the officers will be elected and
the place of holding the next tourna
ment will be named. So far it seems
likely that the Homewood club of Chi
cago will be host at the next tourna
ment, although other clubs will bid
for the honor.
I Harry Allen of the Normandie club
ot St. Louis, runner-up in the cham
pionship match, is certainly a true
sportsman. Nothing is as trying on,
a player's nerves as a short putt, but
he always picks up his opponent's ball
when U is within a foot of the hole,
conceding the stroke.

It was a great week on the arsenal
links. Records were smashed, equal
led, and new marks set again. Mc
Leod, the Midlothian club professional,
started the fun by setting a mark of
70 in the match with Alec Baxter, pro
fessional of the arsenal club, prelim
inary to the tournament. Then Ken
neth Edwards of Midlothian shattered
the amateur record of 74, set by Ardo
Mitchell, by making a 73 In the qual
ifying round. The next day Chandler
Egan equalled the mark set by Ed
wards. Then Champion Phelps wanted
other honors, and in .his match with
Paul Hunter he equalled the profes
sional mark of 70, and beat the ama
teur record of the course by three
points. His opponent, a 17-year-old
player of the Midlothian club,, was
