It generally is accepted that an Eng

In December, 1890, the scratch score of
the Coventry course was taken, being
the score that a good scratch player
would take to each bole of the grounds,
making no mistakes, but also fluking
nothing nor being fortunate with any
special flashes of brilliant play.
At the time they called this "the
ground score," and later several tour-
naments were given nnder the system.
The name, however, followed soon, and
Its origin was a carious one. Dr.
Thomas Browne, R. N., want oat to

of playing directly against each other
to play against the ground ftor and

So hide your head beneath the clothe.
He'll catch you If he can.
There was the idea la golf. "Hsll
catch you If he can!" And it flashed
i across the mind of Major Wellmai
when he was playing this game and
was getting "caught" by the ground
score. "Why," said ho to his friend
Browne, "this player of yours Is a reg
ular 'bogy' man." A considerable piece
of golf history was mads in that
chance remark, for "bogy" was from
that moment established In golf. Some
time later "colonel" was added. Ex
