English Golf Writers Make
Fun of U. S. Champion,
but Fear Him.
But Winds Prove Puzzle, and He
Has Trouble in Keeping
Long Shots Down.
! Bv Cable to The Tribune 1
Leaden, April 11. "The turf is wonder?
ful. I never saw anything like it." ssM
Francis Oulmet. the open golf champion
?f the i'nited States, after be cams "T
toe ? ino, ?e Ports golf course, near Peal,
the r'ay after he nrrlved In this country,
lie ha.I just landed In Dover the niuht
before, bul went at golf with that boat?
nesallks determination which has < har
aeterlssd him ever since he burst into
the jfolf firmament at Brookllne last year.
He looked Just like a kid when he went
out to the course with Arthur LoekWOOd
and Henry.
Leach, ihe Kolf writer of "The Daily
Telegraph." says that, with all ?lue re?
spect? <'uimet Is just about like one hun?
dred half-gmnn eaddfaa whom one may
??p any day on the American links. The
' American champion is further described
bv the writer as long, gawky, thin-faced
and dressed in what the Bngllafa re?a"t
as a marvellous color combination, com
prtetng a green coat, with red stripes, a
gray i heck rap, knickerbockers of a dif?
ferent 6hade. slate-colored Stocking*
brows shoes, a pink tie and a stiff WhitS
Nevertheless, after a few minutes he
made the gallery stand up with whole?
some respect, and the small caddies
stared at him in wonder. The ?lav was
bleak ami cold, and the boys' hands were
a,most blue from the wind that swept in
from the I'hannel. This same wind
seemed lo puzzle the Boston golfer, who
had trouble in keeping his long shots
down an.i in corre. Uni; bis tendency t')
let the ball soar As usual, oulmet did
not use a dr|\er. but an ivory faced
brass?e for all tee shots,
"1 had a perfect pippin of a driver."
OulfUSt 'old The Tribune cot respondent.
"but I lost it When the clubhouse at
BToodlanda burned down, nnd I have not
been able to find a driver since which
exactly suited me. Anyway. I guess this
old. straight faced brearte is the best
thing for me after all."
Quintet does not believe he will suffer
from the different OOOdltioni here, al?
though he fully recognizes them. "I
noticed nothing deceptive about tlie lisht,
although I guess It makes the play lots
harder," he said.
"I get more distan e in my drives than
In the tinted States, for the atmosphere
Is so dense here. The lies are splendid
and the grass nun h more velvetlike than
anything I have ever seen "
iiuimet was very mu. h pleased with the
manner in which ho got away with the
first day's play, saying: "To tell the
truth. I was surprised. It does not take a
player long to Ret back into form, but I
i e not played since T was at Plnehurst,
In February, anil this showing makes me
feel (rood. Perhaps it is walking, skating
and other exercise that keeps me lit."
Leach was much impressed with Out?
mets play, but, like other English sport?
ing writers, he questions the BdvaatagS
of the American champion's interlocking
Bnger grip BS against the old fashioned
p.I'm grip. Rut the same sporting writer?;
recognise as serious what they term the
"Americas invasion," and the expert of
"The Daily Mall" notes that Oulmet is
not as careless as be expected him to be,
but appears to he all for business.
"Clearly." he says, "It Is part of
Oulmet'S golfing religion not to take the
game In a happy gO-IUCky spirit were the,
? ) leaSBM ever so unimportant. His dispo?
sition is of the sort to win champlon
-. Ipa '
Oulmet himself, even though he has a
certain amount of eelf-eeeurance, is vary
modest, lie said to the Tribune corre?
spond? nt :
"All I ?nu going to do is to pay my best.
I am not afraid. All I can do Is to win or
lose, but don't fancy I don't realize what
I am up Sgalnat Of tout se, I want to
take the bacon home. That's natural, but
there are lots of good men here."
The day after Ouimet was at Deal he
pla.ved at Bsndniefc, where he is to return
on .May S to prepar? for the ??reat event.
II is putting has not been very good, but
he drove gloriously and approached well.
The winds blowing ovrr the links hothereti
him a bit. but he expects to learn how to
meet them. On Thursday bs played at
Band Wich again in B terrible gale, it vvus
bitt"tly ci.hl ami be was defeated by Lard
I'hnrles Hope, twenty-two years old, one
or the meal promising of ths younger
School Of British amateurs, Who won the
French amateur championship.
'?uimet again had trouble In keeping th?,
ball low. but hit some perfect shots in
the teeth of the pale. Later he missed
two shots bacanas he was trying to force
the distance aad at the same time heap
the ball down. OOCS ?r twice he was three
or four feet too strong on his approach
putt and the failure annoyed him. "This
is terrible. ' he said, gazing at the ball.
"Terrible. ' My the way, the caddies ap?
pear stunned because Oulmet never says
?bloody," "beastly." "bally." but Instead
only "(?eel" "My gracious:" 'Terrible!'"
F.nglish writers take up much space,
discussing the coming matches and fol?
low the doings of Travers, Herreshoff and
Oulmet with great Interest. They look
forward erlth pleasure te the arrival of
Schmidt and F.van*
"Midiron," In "The t'hronicle." say?:
"Suppose ?ix of England's best players
were xning to Amerita, we WOUld expe. t
one of them to com?- very near vv Inning."
Then tha writer speaks of the thOTOUgh?
ne?.-, of American golfing methods ami the
readiness of the playera of that country
to loara anything aea in order to aver?
COme possible ?lif.Vulties.
Leach ateo t.?k? .-? .ip tins point at cr,-at
