Hoffner, Philadelphia Golfer,
Homebred ofPhilmont Club Ties Mark
Set by McNamara Over Same Course
Louis Tellier and George Bowden Complete Journey
Over Links One Stroke Behind Leader; Onimet
First Amateur to Show Face Through Gray Mists
By Grantland Rice
WEST NEWTON, Mass., June 9.?Mind ye, Macgregor, it was one
of Scotland's bonniest days when the twenty-fourth open championship
started. The shifting mists settled in from the Brae Burn hills with a
wee drift of a drizzle, just enough to make it taste like golf.
And through this mist and rain, blown from the land of the thistle
and the moors, Charlie Hoffner, the young homebred from the Philmont
Club, of Philadelphia, drifted in ahead of the big field with the rare round
of 72, tieing the course record and leading both Louis Tellier and George
Bowden by a stroke.
Aye, Macgregor, it was grand golf for the youngster, for over the
first eighteen-hole test he led one of the finest fields that ever started for
the American championship. If his name had only been Jock or Sandy
it would have been a perfect setting.
the Frenchman, and Bowden, of Boston,
turned in two 73s, and just back o?
this pair Mike "King" Brady, another
homo-bred star, raced around in 74.
And here the first amateur showed
his face through the gray Scottish
mists. It was Francis Ouimet with a
76, one stroke better than Chick Evans
Jim Barnes, Alex Ross, Otto Hackbarth
?nd Tommy Mulgrew. One stroke back
:.of these, at 78, came Faddy Doyle- Wal?
ter Hagen, Jock Hutchinson, Freddy
^IcLeod and Emmett French.
Only Twenty Under 80
I All told, from the big field there were
?only twenty men under 80, for Brat
?Burn, winding through the mists with
&ts narrow valleys and hills, was a
'Tugged test to-day, where no man
Blight wander off the beaten path anc
find anything but trouble for his mate
I Aye, Macgregor, a man could find a
rb'it of trouble. If you don't believe it
,?sk Willie Chisholm, from Bellevue
Fin. Willie opened with a 5, 9, 5; set?
tled down to three 4s\ and then at the
Tfhort 200-yard eighth Willie met a
Waterloo that made Napoleon's look
alike two-tenths of nothing. It was at
rthis 200-yard hole that Chisholm need?
ed 18 strokes before his ball finally
?settled with a sombre cluck in the bot?
tom of the cup! His tee shot left the
jball perched on a barren rock, and
j?ight times the trusty niblick chopped
?its way through solid stone before the
!tall even wiggled.
: A sky rocket 9 at the 9th gave
fchisholm 64 for the outward journey
ftnd when he started home with a 7,
7, 7, 6, 8 he decided to call it a day
Rr?d cease firing. Even Chisholm be?
lieves they counted a couple of echoes
;.on him oft the rock. If 18 at'a 3-shot
fhole isn't world record for an open
championship, it ought to be, and will
?fco be entered until proven rebuttal if
offered in return. And Willie is ?
Scotch professional at that.
? Hoffner's round, opening badly, was
? marvel of brilliant golf. He begar
y hooking his first two tee shots inte
.?ne woods, losing a stroke to par at
?each hole, where he needed 5's. But
?*from that point on the Philadelphia
Kome bred came down to earth a?
'swiftly as the June rain, going out in

The feature of his round, however,
?was the last nine holes. He started

I nd then the fireworks began. A
tjb and a 5 equalled par nt tho next twe
tyoles and then in a hurricane finish
Hie completed the round with 3, 4, 3, 8?
?wo under par for a 35.
I At the 255 yard 17th HoffneT
reached a trap, punched the ball out
3d.i the green and sank a 30-footer foi
31 3. This left him a 3 at th.? 40f
1 St h to tie the course record
jjnd lead the field, a. miraculoiif
JOchicvement under the conditions. A
tf.ri drive left him in sight of the
Bin and a fine second dropped the
|all three feet from the cup. One putl

Hoffner is a short stocky type witr
a good, full swing capable of fln<

Englishman paired with the dejected

meant to smash all records. He opened
his round with a 3?3, but after this

He is still within the fight and a dan?

A Long Range Duel
Walter Hagen and Jesse Guilford.the
j two siege guns, had a slashing long
range duel, Hagen taking a 78 and
Guilford finishing third among the
amateurs with a 79. Both were tearing
into the ball oft" the tee, but mistakes
here and there gave both trouble, as
mistakes will do on this Brae Burn
Jock Hutchinson and Alex Ross were
? two other noted Scots who needed a 78
and a 77, respectively, but this leaves
' both well within the running. For Brae
I Burn to-day was no easy test, what
i with the gray mist3 that swung through
'? the valleys and the drizzling rain that
left the moor far from speedway swift?
ness. And still nobody can say who
will win. Hoffner, Tellier, Bowden and
Brady have the jump.
Three of these aro home-breds.
Ouimet and Evans, leading the ama?
teurs, are still in easy sight of the
pacemakers, where a fine round to-day
might easily send either to the front.
Representing the foreign born, in addi?
tion to Tellier, the Frenchman, Barnes,
Hutchinson, Ross, Hagen and others
are well within range. Four of the
first five are Boston golfers who, with
their knowledge of the course, are sure
to be dangerous factors right along.
The character of the golf to-day,
considering conditions, was exception?
ally good, for Brae Burn is the type of
course so well bunkered that one mis?
take, a trifle short or a trifle over,
might easily cost two or three extra
strokes. The penalty imposed by these
hazards keeps all contenders under a
heavy strain, for there are few places
to rest along the way. Jim Barnes,
paired to-day with Freddy McLeod, is
very likely to produce a brilliant
And there ia added interest in the
fact that none of the likely contend?
ers dropped too far out to have a hope?
less chance. But mind ye, MacGregor,
there may be a different story to tell
to-morrow night. Gin it disna rahi
again, the faster greens may gao the
laddies something else to worry aboot.

Rube Marqiiard Breaks Leg
And Dodgers Lose Again
Best Known of Lef t-Hand
ed Pitchers Out of
Game for the Season
CINCINNATI, June 9.?The Brooklyn
Dodgers are a sad lot indeed to-night.
Since they have come out here it has
been one beating after another, the
climax being capped to-day in their
fourth straight defeat at the. hands' of
the Reds. The score of to-day's melee
was 7 to 2, and Uncle Robbie's men
never had a chance, 'tis said.
To have second place taken from
them is bad enough, but to receive
four straight wallopings in the. same
town is too much. Brooklyn breathes
a big sigh of relief to-night as it wends
its way westward, because it knows
that it can fare no worse elsewhere
than it did in this burg.
Not only did Brooklyn lose the.
game, the series and its cheerfulness,
but it lost its star, hurler, Rube Mar
quard, who will be out of the game for
several weeks, if not for the season.
Rube, who was treated most unkindly
by the Red batters while he was on the
slab, was badly injured in the fifth
inning, when he stumbled over second
base after making a two-base hit. Ho
fell heavily to the ground and had to
be carried from the field. It then was
found that his leg had been broken.
Cheney replaced the tall lefthander,
but was withdrawn in the seventh to
make way for a pinch hitter. Mitchell
took up the burden thereafter and
found the going none too smooth. Slim
Salloe did the twirling for the Reds
and had clear sailing the entire dis?
tance, permitting only six safe blows,
which he managed to keep well scat?
The Reds bagged a total of twelve
hits, including a homer.and two dou?
bles. Moreover, these blowB came in
clusters, which served the purpose of
the homo team and gave them an easy
Moran's nroteg?s put the game on ice
in the fourth, after they had scored a
run in the first. After Daubert had
flied to Myers, Groh came through with
a single to left. Roush beat out a hit
to Schmandt and both runners tallied
when Neale doubled to left. Olson
threw out Kopf, Neale going to third.
Bressler was safe on Malone's fumble,
Neale scoring. Rariden ended the
spasm by forcing Bressler, Olson to

bright stars of the conference meet
last Saturday and who broke the rec?
ord in the 100-yard dash with a 0:09 4-5

Hayes would bear watching. He is

Rain Picks on the Two
Colonels the Same Way
It Did on Napoleon
By W. O. McGeehan
A drizzle similar to that which an?
noyed the late Napoleon Bonaparte of
Corsica and France at the field of
Waterloo yesterday caused similar an?
noyance to Colonel Tillinghast
L'Hommedieu Huston, of New York,
Cincinnati and Cuba. Under cover of
the drizzle, Kid Gleason withdrew,
taking with him the badly tattered
remnants' of the White Sox. The
weather hindered Marshal Francisco
Pizzola from bringing up the neces?
sary reinforcements in time.
But did this make Colonel Tilling?
hast L'Hommedieu Huston pack his
old black: grip for St. Helena or Cuba?
It did not. He clamped his military
chapeau, or iron boiler, more firmly
upon his head and paced thoughtfully
before his tent at Forty-second Street.
Colonel Pacob Ruppert, Duke of
Knickerbocker, waited within.
There was a clatter of taxi-cab
wheels along the moist pavement.
Brigadier Harry Sparrow emerged
from the vehicle waving a dispatch.
The Napoleonic half-owner of the
Yanks seized it and read it breath?
lessly. Quickly he consulted his maps
Cleveland Cossacks Complimented
"We are now in second place," an?
nounced Colonel Tillinghast L'Hom?
medieu Huston. "And only a game
and a half behind the White Sox.
McGillicuddy's Irregular Infantry has
routed the Cleveland Cossacks on the
Field of Philadelphia. We will pass
the White Sox even before Harry
Stevens can make another million."
There was a clotter of taxicab
Huston continued to pace before his
tent while the Duke of Knickerbockei
consulted in tense tones with Mashal
Huggins as to the best strategy to re
pell a threatened invasion by Hughey
Ee-yah Jennings at the plain below
Coogan's Bluff to-day.
Ban Johnson, president of the Amer?
ican League, tarried here again yes?
terday to consult with John Heydler
as to the best arrangements for the
coming world's series. Ban Johnson
favors giving a part of the proceeds
j of the games in the series to the sec
; ond best team in each league.
It has been shown that players lose
! interest toward the end of the season,
; when the figures prove to them that
they have no chance of getting into
the world's series grab bag. The plan
of giving the teams out of the series
something to work for might mean
better games toward the finish. The
I athletes are mercenary or human?de?
pending on the point of view.
The Yankees and the Tigers will form
a not unimpressive feature of Big Bill
Edwards's Boy Scout parade tomorrow.
Colonel Tillinghast L'Hommedieu Hus?
ton will wear his imperial chapeau, or
iron boiler, symbolic of his rank as
half owner of the Yankees. Colonel
Jacob Ruppert will appear in a new
summer creation. Hughey Jennings
will pick grass along the route and
utter his shrill batil-jcry of "Ee-yah!"
as he passes each block.
Ban B. May Parade
Ban Johnson has been asked to re?
main over for the affair. He will
march, if Commissioner Enright will
remove the restrictions in regard to
heavy vehicles on Fifth Avenue. Other?
wise he will ride on one of the floats.
The local Georgians will take advan?
tage of the presence of the Tigers to
make a presentation to Ty Cobb in
recognition of the lustre he had added
to the original lustre of that state.
The Georgia Society, Mr. Charles Towns
presiding, will form a big part of the
crowd on that day.
Colonel Huston and Ban Johnson
wish it denied that either one of them
will impersonate the gigantic baseball
which will be rolled in the procession
by a troupe of Boy Scouts. "Yet 'Big
Bil* Edwards be the ball," said Colo
nel Huston. "He is rounder and would
roll more easily."
Colonel Ruppert, president of the
Yankees, announced yesterday that the
club had secured AI Wickland from the
St. Paul club. Wickland is one of the
most promising outfielders in his
league. In return the St. Paul club
will receive a Yankee player, name to
be announced later.

(Copyright 1919, TSfew York Tribune Ine.)
Exactly twenty-five years ago this balmy summer, a sturdy Scot, by
the name of Willie Dunn, won the first open golf championship of the
For the next sixteen years, on through 1910, no home-bred golfer
ever won the title, the foreign born from Scotland and England holding
the open road. In 1910. J. J. McDermott arrived far enough to tie Alex
Smith, losing later on in the play-off.
In .1911 McDermott won and from that date on no foreign born
golfer has ever reached the heights again, even through the invasion of
Harry Vardon and Ted Ray.
With Jock Hutchinson, Jim Barnes and others, they have made violent
assaults on the crest, only to be beaten back by a stroke or two.
And when the home-bred pros, faltered a trifle, Ouimet, Travers and
Evans, three amateurs, rushed to the breach in time to hold the barricade,
Winners Up to Date
Here are the open golf champions of America up to date:
1894, Willie Dunn; 1895, Horace Rawlins; 1896, James Foulis: 1897,
Joe Loyd; 1898, Fred Herd; 1899, Willie Smith; 1900, Harry Vardon;
1901, Wiilie Anderson; 1902, Lawrence Auchterlonie; 1903, Willie Ander?
son; 1904, Willie Anderson; 1905, Willie Anderson; 1906, Alex Smith;
1907, Alex Ross; 1908, Fred McLeod; 1909, George Sargent; 1910, Alex
Smith; 1911, J. J. McDermott; 1912, J. J. McDermott; 1913, Francis
Ouimet (amateur); 1914, Walter Hagen; 1915, Jerry Travers (amateur);
1916, Chick Evans (amateur).
There you have them in one cluster.
The first seventy-two-hole test was inaugurated at Myopia in 1898,
where Fred Herd turned in a card of 328 for the winning count, averaging
82 to the round.
This was the highest score ever required to win. The lowest was a
286 by Chick Evans, at Minikahda, in 1916.
The Foreign Assault
In 1900 Harry Vardon and J. H. Taylor made a clean sweep at
Wheaton, Vardon winning with 313 and Taylor finishing second with 315.
In 1913 Vardon came over again, aided and abetted by Ted Ray, and the
two Englishmen came close to another winning romp.
Fortunately for Uncle Sam's golfing prestige, Francis Ouimet, a.
twenty-year-old amateur, came breezing in just in time to tie the two
English stars with 304. In the play-off his 72 beat Vardon five strokes
and Ray seven strokes, a complete overthrow for the veterans.
The Home-Bred Problem
In this twenty-fourth open championship the home-breds have two
tough problems to face.
Led by such stars as Mike Brady, Tommy McNamara, Tommy Ker?
rigan, Eddie Loos, Walter Hagen and others, they face the foreign born
assault on one side led by Hutchinson, Barnes and Nichols, with the
amateur attack led by Francis Ouimet or Chick Evans.
So far the home-bred pros, have produced only two winners?J. J.
McDermott and Walter Hagen.
McNamara and Brady have both been fluttering around the peak, but
neither has broken through.
The Scotch-English combination, which includes such stars as Jock
Hutchinson, Jim Barnes, Gil Nichols, Alex Smith, Bob McDonald, Alex
Cunningham, George Fotheringham, Jimmy Maiden and others, will make
a desperate assault against the line in the next two days to make, up for
the long trail running through the wilderness since 1910. They have a
formidable array to work with?but they also have a formidable array
An open championship is a supreme test of nerve control. There is
no great physical strain attached?nothing like that of winning an
amateur championship through a week of play.
But in a seventy-two-hole medal journey there is always the feeling
that any one mistake?any one missed putt?may cost the title.
In 1915, for example, Tommy McNamara had an easy shot for the
green. The ball failed to get up, caught a heel print in a bunker and the
hole cost him a 6 or a 7.
Later on .Terry Travers, at the tenth hole, sliced his first shot out
of bounds, hooked his second to the high grass and then from there laid
his third within two feet of the cup for a par 4. Travers beat McNamara
by one stroke. And so it goes.
With a field so well matched each one of the leaders feels that every
putt may mean the title, that any one mistake may cost the title. All
this calls for supreme nerve control. The golfer who flutters even for a
hole or two will be. out of it. Tellier, the Frenchman, was leading the
field in 1915 until he plunked one to the waving grass and took a 9,
attempting too much upon his recovery. That dumped him for good.
Jack McDermott had the ideal temperament for an open. Jack went
in expecting to win, confident from the first shot to the last. He was
paired with Harry Vardon at the big Shawnee tournament in 1913 and
beat the star Englishman by twelve or thirteen stroke 3 over the seventy
It was over a Boston course?Brookline?that Ouimet too his big
jump to fame. It may be over a Boston course that he picks up a new
start after a four-year lapse, for Ouimet is another with an ideal tem?
perament for this game?one who takes the break as it comes without any
fluttering duckfits attached if he blows a putt or reaches trouble.
The Open brings out the gathering of the clans. The talk is all golf,
out with many accents. The brogue of Scotland, the rising accent of Eng?
land, the Irish twist, New England, the Middle West and the South.
When Nipper Campbell speaks you can see the Scottish moors and fell
:he dour mists. Tanned, weather-beaten, brawny-looking, with a million
stories to relate?they're a great lot.
It may be that Babe Ruth can hit a baseball harder than any entry
n the game, but he isn't hitting the aforesaid pill quite as often as a num?
ber of others. The Babe barely hung by the .300 edge last year and now
?e is having a pale pink time of it reaching .200. Quality is a corpulent
isset, but quantity still has its place in the season's compilation.
