"Chick" Evans Eliminates Lewis in Record-Breaking Match
That Ends on 41st Green Herron Is Defeated by Platt; Fownes Puts Out Bob Gardner Western Star Lucky to Score Over Greeenwich Player in National Amateur Meet?Jones and Ouimet Win Easily?Kirkby Out on 39th Hole By Grantland Rice In so far as the green and white flare of intensified drama is con? cerned, the world's greatest golf match has come to pass at last. Ther? have been other matches.that offered more consistently brilliant golf, but there never has been another in the history of the national amateur chamV I pionship that went as far, or that produced as many pulse-quivering' thrills as the battle at Roslyn, L. I., yesterday, when "Chick" Evans, of ' Chicago, finally conquered Reginald ?1. Lewis, of Greenwich, on the forty first hole.' The match ended just a breath before the two golfers and the big gallery were ready to collapse from nervous exhaustion and sheer physical fatigue. Something like two decades ago Wal-<4" ter J. Travis and Wilder, of Massnchu Ktts. went to forty holes at Garden City before the former ?nally won. Yes t?r?iay Evans and Lewis set a new championship record, when the worn and weary "Chick" sunk hi3 two-foot putt on the forty-nrst green after the equally worn and weary Lewis had taken three putts and had missed his final bid by an inch. "Chick's" short attempt fluttered in, fluttered out again and then, as if im- i biied with the weariness of both the gallery and the players, finally sank from sight in the bottom of the waiting hita The story of the last few holes contains far more drama and concen? trated human emotion than it does in the way of technical golf. Squares Match at 33d All through the forenoon round the young Greenwich star had stuck to Evans with the grip of destiny. He was not to be shaken loose. Blow for blow he carried on the battle through the Afternoon finish until he finally squared the match on the fifteenth hole of the thirty-third green. All square now and but three to play. From all over the course scattered gal? leries, scenting the possibility of a thrilling finish, rushed from knoll and knob, from hiil and vallev to be in at ! the death. At the thirty-fourth hole Lewis topped his tee shot where Evans struck off a far swipe down the middle of the . half blind fairway. Lewis, forced to play short of the guarding ditch, had little chiince for a half. But Evans's mashie pitch caught a roll of the green and fina?y trickled into the heavy grass fringing the foot, of the green. c Lewis at this point proved again that he was a golfer of both raw nerve and rare class. He pitched boldly to the eup with enough baekspin to hold his ball only six feet away, and when Chick chipped out twenty feet short of the pin all his advantage had been vriped away. His putt failed to go down, and then Lewis turned a bad start into a fine finish by holing his six-footer for a par 4. He was then i up in place of being 1 down. Once again at the seventeenth, after he had chipped by the cup on his third, Lewis had to hole a ten-foot, curling putt to hold his advantage, and when the ball dropped in the lusty shout that went up gave full approval to his cool, game stand. Makes Desperate Stand Evans was now 1 down with but one hole left?and it was at this hol? that the Western ?tar made th? most des? perate stand to stay in that,he has ever made in his tournament experience of twelve years. Both hit two good drives j down tho middle, with Chick a trifle short and a trifle to the left. Just a I few seconds after his ciub crashed into the ball the ball crashed into a gap of ancient oaks well to the left of the green and bounded back some sixty or seventy yards from the green. The crash of the ball against the tree limbs seemed to reecho like the voice of doom, ho far as Evans was ? concerned. And when Lewis played to the bank beyond the green for a sure 6 no one who knew the contour of this final green could conceive of any thing but a victory for Lewis. But Evans refused to quit. He pitched ; down the ?lope ten feet beyond the j pin, leaving himself a sloping, treach? erous putt over tho hardest green in j the cour?e to manipulate. Lewis, tak- | ing his tine, coolly chipped down with? in eight feet of the cup. j It was then up to Evans. He had to < get his putt and his opponent had to miss, or the lights were out of the ' Western star. Evans starte! his putt : a good three feet above a straight Use to the hole.

Young Harmon Passed Up Chance of Career /"\NE of the most unusual golf j stories on record came to light yesterday. It developed that when Pete Harmon conceded his match to Dave Herron on the thirty-ninth tee, after apparently driving two balls out of bounda, neither tee shot I had reached out of bound? soil. Both had passed well beyond the line of the last out of bounds stake, I and if Harmon had been able to ! find his ball in the heavy brush he ! would have had a chance to reach j the green, or, at least, to play safe for his 5. In place of this, he as? sumed that both were out and so conceded the match to Herron, where he might have had a good chance to give an even battle for the hole. curve, broke off sharply when about two feet away, and then disappeared i from sight?one of the greatest putts ever sunk in any championship any? where on earth. Lewis missed his fourth, and so they moved along to the first extra hole. Here two fine drivea traveled on down the course. Evans, away, elected to play safely to the right of the pin, catching the bottom of the green's big (dip. Lewis, playing boldly for the cup, caught the green's down slant and the ball, while perfectly struck, rolled into a trap beyond. He wa? baroly out on his third, still forty feet or more away. Evans, fifty feet from the hole, had a treacherous putt to handle up the sloping, baffling bank, and he did well enough to get the ball within five feet of the cup. Long Putt Eludes Cup Lewis here made his bid for victory. His long putt hit the cup and bounded out. A moment later Evans's putt curled up to within a hair of the rim and hung there. Off they were to the second extra hole, where another flare and flash of drama was In the making. Once again two fine drives came about, Evans then pitched eighteen feet beyond the cup to the righ't, while Lewis struck his approach too boldly and the flying ball scampered from the green well up the steep bank, where it lay in the brown rouph, leaving an imposyible shot back. ? This situation seemed to leave Evans j his second chance to win. But Lewis, after carefully reviewing the contour and the downward slope, finally chipped out with just enough speed to let the ball tickle over a grassy ditch, working its way through the remainder of the rough, and then trickle on its way to within eighteen inches of the hole? dead for a par 4. After this magnificent ?hot the shout that rolled out from the big gallery across Long Island Sound carried as much in the way of vocalistic cata? clysm as the wild howl of the tribe when Babe Ruth hits one of his famous heiro runs. Once atrain Lewis refused to yield, for the best Evans could do was to get down in two putts. More Thrills on 39th * . The next move was on to the 39th hole, another thriller. Evans again wa3 straight down the middle, far and true. Lewis pushed his long tee shot off to the right in a cluster of bushes and trees, facing once more an almost impossible shot. The ball was not only partly stymied from the green by a group of trees, but it was lying bad? ly on a group of sticks which he could not move. But once again the Green? wich entry came through with a mira? cle recovery, thudding into the ball with such fierce force that he not only chared the trees but also the green. Qiick once again had his chance with | an easy mashie niblack putt left. But i the strain wa3 beginning to tell and h? j , hooked his approach to the left of the . ? green, and as neither got dead on their ' chip shots back another half in 5's re j suited. Coming to the 40th hole after two good drivea Evan? hooked his second to the left of the green, while Lewis righted the green's edsre at the back, leaving himself a puzzling 40-foot ap j proach to get dead. Chick's third shot I wa? 15 feet over, and Lewis's approach ! putt failed to take the roll, stopping 8 '. feet to the right of the pin. Once ; more they halved in 5's and moved on to the 41st green, slogging their way ] or. to i? championship record. Evans caught the rough to the left, ' while Lewis sliced into rough at the , right. Both were short on their aec ; onds, and both were alike, 30 feet short | of the cup, on their third shots. ? Evans'? approach putt stopped hole ?high 2 feet to the right, while Lewis, ? 6 feet short, failed to get his 5, and i so passed out of the tournament after j one of the gamest bids any golfer ever i made. * It was the narrowest squeak that Evans has ever drawn, and his brilliant recovery at the 36th green will long stand among the classics of golfing his? tory.

The turning point of this match came at the thirteenth and fourteenth | holes in the afternoon. Herron, trapped ! at the thirteenth on his second, was over I the green on his third and needed a 6. ? He was then 2 down. At the short four? teenth Platt pumped his ball over into the trap beyond, the ball lying badly near the junction of grass and sand at the back of the hazard. Herron's high pitch stopped twelve feet, from the tin. Platt, with a murderous recovery to make, not only pot his ball out, but put it within four feet of the cup for a half in 3. Two down and only four to play, Herron faced a rueged task. This task became even harder when Platt pitcheo from the matted grass on the fifteenth and holed his eight-footer for a par 4. A3 the sixteenth nnd seventeenth were halved Herron finally succumbed by the margin of 2 and 1. It was a hard blow for Dave, but he had never been able to get his game going at the old Oakmont clip. Platt's tine punting and wonderful recoveries featured his play. Ex-Champlone Locked in Grapple While Bobby Jones was downing Frank Dyer and Tommy Armour was eliminating Phil Carter, two past champions were locked in an old fashioned battle when Bob Gardner and Bill Fownes came together. This match was featured by two sudden turns. In the morning round Fownes opened at 3uch speed that he left Gard? ner far in the rear. While the Chicago entry was struggling Fownes was turn? ing out nothing but 4s and 3s, and so he was 5 up at the seventh hole. Later on in the journey Gardner cut this big lead to a pair of holes. He was 2 down at the forenoon finish, but once again Fowti's got the jump I and around the eighth hole in the afternoon he was 7 un. Then Gard? ner cut the leash and "by coming back in 33 Fownes had to make two wonder- I ful second shots to hold his marpin. He was only 2 up coming to the 34th green. In the face of Gardner's fine tee shot the Pittsburgh veteran was forced to play a spoon shot over a group of trees to reach the green, one of the finest shots of the day. At the 35th he was again called upon to ram a long second home, and once again he dropped the ball within a few feet of the cup. Gardner's 33 on the home? ward journey was another exhibition of his gameness and skill, but the rally came too late against a golfer of Fownes's experience, judgment, skill and nerve. Another dramatic upset followed when Ned Allis, 7 down to O?wald Kirkby at the 24th hole, finally emerged triumphant on the 39th green. Kirk? by was 5 up, with only nine holes left. But at this poiat his putting touch over the rolling greens vanished, and he then lost six of the next eight holes, where Allis was playing par golf. Game Rally by Kirkby One down coming to the 36th hole, Kirkby rallied and carried the battle on by getting a fine 4. After two halved holes in par Kirkby's tee shot on tho 39th went out of bounds, and this was enough to settle the match. Both men played good sound golf all day until the turn came in the last nine holes. Jones was 8 up against Frank Dyer in the morning battle, but in the after? noon Dyer played the first thirteen holes In two under 4's for a gamo bi?! to stay in the scrap. But Jones, after losing four holes finally settled the match on the short fourteenth. As a result of yesterday's matches Evans meets Fownes to-day, whi'e | Allis is facing Platt in the upper half. In the lower half, Quimet. who won easily, takes on Tommy Armour, the surviving Scotsman, who has proved that he is an opponent not to he taken lightly. Another feature match will come between Jones and Fred Wright of Boston. These two youngsters tied for the medal round on Monday at 154, and Wright added new laurels to his record yesterday by defeating Jesse Sweetser, after a hard struggle, 2 and 1. The elimination of Herron and Gard? ner makes the winner of the Evans Fownes match look like the finalist in the upper wing of the draw, while if Quimet and Jones both win to-day, they will meet to-morrow in a 36-hole test that will draw one of the greatest galleries on record. But before they get this far they must both overcome two strong opponents who are playing championship golf in Armour and Wright. > Real Test for Lynch A new and dangerous contender for middleweight honors will meet a vet? eran of the ring when Dan Lynch tackles Johnny Howard in the feature twelve-round bout at the Bayonne A.

Plays a Con si /tent Game and Is Now Likely to Reach the Final By Ray McCarthy After hi? wonderful victory over Dave Herron yesterday J. Wood Platt, of North Hills, Philadelphia, begins to look like a champion possibility. Let nobody make the mistake of believing Platt's overthrow of the titleholder was i a fluke. It was as well-earned and as ? brilliant a win as was ever staged in this tournament. Herron'a gameness and bulldog tenac : ity in sticking with an opponent are well known in the golfing world. And to defeat him one must keep shooting | at top speed until the final stroke is I made. This in itself gives a hint as to the kind of player Platt is. But if one is skeptical of his ability or of j his nerve he need only to follow him in one of his matches to be convinced the Quakertown youth possesses the goods Platt is at all times as cool as eithei Ray or Vardon. He ia as supremelj confident in all crises as Walter Hager ?if not more so. And he is as fasi in his play as any golfer w? have ir this country. Some say he rival' George Duncan, the British open title holder, in speed. Above all, Platt neve; becomes discouraged. Makes Great Recoveries Time and again yesterday Plat either caught a trap or the rough, bu he always came back with an astonish ing recovery. These recoveries fea tured the day's play. For instance 01 the fourteenth hole, the well knowi battleship green, he drove over th carpet into a trap In getting a lie tha seemed unplayable. Yet he chippe out wonderfully well and sank a six foot putt to halve the hole. On the fifteenth fairway, the crow gathered so close to the Philadelphia he could scarcely swing his clul "Will you kindly move back a little? he asked. And then, taking a mashi? he stepped up and smacked a perfe? shot to the edge of the green, withou ! consuming more than a second's time. Platt's grit was superbly shown o ! the last few holes of the match. O . the fourteenth, fifteenth and sixteenth \ Herron had by far the best of it up 1 ; the green and looked as' though r ; would win each of these holes easii I after tha tea shots. But the Norl ' Hills star stuck like glue, played h | game all the way and halved each i the above mentioned holes. Their cards were as follows: MORNWG ROUND Out: Platt .4 5 S 5 4 4 S 3 5?4 0 Herron .4 4 4 4 5 4 4 3 5?37 In P'fift .4 4 4 R 2 G 5 3 5?37?' H? rron .r, 4 4 4 3 5 4 4 6?3??

On the morning rou Carter had by far the better of t going. In fact, it looked for a seco time as though Armour would be fore out. The steady pace of the Long 1 ander left him one up at the end the first half. But Armour is persistent, and though he got off to a bad "?tart the afternoon he quickly settled do' and began to draw away from his < ponent. He won the twentieth h, after losing the nineteenth and beco ing two down, and he won the twen first with sound golf, which put him even focting again. But he slipj: back once more on the twenty-secc by taking a 6. On the sixth, or twe ty-fourth, Armour got a beauti birdie 3 by getting home in two a sinking a long putt. He also won t last two holes going out and from tl on was never headed. If Armour can survive his n-ntch day, that with Francis Ouimet, he v merit serious consideration for title.

Chick Evans will meet W. C. Fownes, who | eliminated Bob Gardner yesterday, and I it would not be greatly surprising to I see the two former titleholders go into | extra holes. Fownes just at present is j playing beautiful golf and is as steady as the old hall clock. It will be in teresting to see if Evans's nerve wracking contest against Lewis has affected him in any way. Woodie Platt is counted on to win from E. P. Allis and remain for the semi-final round, but this, too, is by no means a certainty. Allis is going well and is a grand golfer to boot. It remains for Ouimet to put out the last foreign survivors and the ma? jority of fans are figuring on the Bos tonian to turn the trick. If he doesn't we shall have to begin worrying about our amateur crown. What is being doped by many as the feature struggle of the day is that in which Bobby Jones will play against Fred Wright. These two youngsters have entertained the gallery the past few days with some wonderful shots. Many believe Wright has the necessary game and nerve to defeat the youthful sensation from Atlanta, but it must be remembered that Jone3 hasn't even been pushed as yet, and if he is he may surprise with an astonishing round.

Leading Sur ran ? fair rat?, Feature Event Le Glorieux Home First When Blue Laddie Bleeds ; Three Faul in 'Chase By W. J. Macbeth The wonder of wonders developed in the running of the fourth race at Bel mont Park yesterday afternoon when the Quincy Stable's Le Glorieux won the Seaside Selling Handicap at a mile and a quarter. Le Glorieux was the rank outsider of a field of three and galloped homo I on the bit, as usually happens in fie- j lion and sometimes in real life. Le ' Glorieux, of course, beat the odds-on choice by a city block and the odds-on choice just had to be away back near the sixteenth pole when the race was over, a very discredited thoroughbred ?as always happens in fiction. It was a blood and thunder melo? drama, this running of the advertised feature race of a somewhat ordinary! card at Belmont yesterday. The odds- i on favorite, the Greentree'Stable's Blue I Laddie, furnished all the blood and most of the thunder. Blue Laddie was I quoted at 2 to 5 by the oral layers and| probably would have walked home had j he not burst a blood vessel. He bled ; so badly he had to be pulled up and that is why he finished a very dis credited last in a field of three. Books Spurn Blue Laddie Money Everybody got aboard Blue Laddie, j The books were refusing commissions at any price. Blue Laddie is a stable ! mate of Debadou, the old-time timber- i topper that came out last Friday and 1 f.gain Tuesday and raced like a stake ! horse over the flat. Blue Laddie had been put over tho jumps this year and that was enough for the wise "fish. j It looked for a time as if Blue Lad-' die would do all that Debadou, his! boarding companion, had done the. day! before. Fairbrother, as with Debadou, I soon took the track and raced out into | a long lead. Le GloritAix outraced I Biff Bang, the second choice, but still I could not keep within gunshot of the i favorite. And then, midway round the ; turn, it all happened. Blue Laddie was! seen to falter in his stride, to waver ? and to back up. Le Glorieux raced ! around him almost at will on the j stretch turn. Even Biff Bans, in no | wise partial to the track, closed with a I rush on the early pacemaker as soon I as he folded. It was then all over ? but the shouting. Le Glorieux won in ! a common canter. Biff I3an?_', which was lost in the shuffle at the time, had no difficulty in taking the place from the favorite, which was pulled walk through the stretch. to "Sunny Jim" Has Holiday It was a re?:ular old fashioned Roman' holiday for . Sunny Jim Fitzsimmons. I He owns Li Glorieux, which got the lion's share of the Seaside Handicap! and he saddled the Quincy Stable's j Teddy R., the second choice, which won tho Mine?la, with $2,000 added, nt ; six furlongs straight for two-year-olds. Teddy R. won just about ay he pleased,, but there might have been a far differ- j ent story if Walter J. Salmon's Bodan- ! zky had not been interfered with throughout the first five furlongs by; Squaw Man, the favorite. Squaw Man and Bodanzky broke in front of the ! others. But Squaw Man refused to run true. He kept boring out and bumping: Bodanzky until finally outside the quarter, Ponce took up and came to the inside of the favorite. He was run ning over the others at the end. The steeplechase for the maiden three-year-olds at about two miles : proved a thriller in more ways than one. Of a field of five no less than three fell in most spectacular spills. Elmer Johnson was the first to go I down, and his rider, II. Phillips, after! he saw the others fall, remounted and | rode out the race for third money. Such as it was this timber-topping j event was a disgraca to the name of j the sport. W. Blake, on Surf, allowed the favorite, Frank B? to steal a lead of a furlong in the first mile ;ind a j half. Surf was full of running and closed like a Cyosset, but rr!o late, of | course. Winooski was no tired at the last fence that he simply fell over it , and lay like dea?! for several minutes, j Ho fe?l on R. Hanna, who had to be , rescued, but who, fortunately, was r.ot seriously injured. Eight of the Futurity eligibJes, many ! of which will start on Saturday, met in the Islip Handicap, at five and a half furlongs straight, the opening event. This was won by Max Hirsch'3 Gray Lag, which closed with a great rush.. Star Voter weakened right at the end. Tom McTaggart, the odds-on favorite of the fifth race, at a mile, romped home as he pleased. Sam Hildreth's Krower, the choice of the concluding number, raced straight as an arrow through the six furlongs chute coui-30 and outgamed the heavily weighted King Thrush in the final yards. - a International League AT BAI/TIFORE First gair.e: R.

Miss Goss in Fourth Round After One Day of Playing Runner-Up in Ranking Stars at Westchester; Mrs. Mallory Also Wins By Fred Hawthorne The final preparatory tournament that leads up to th? women's national championship event at Philadelphia next week, started yesterday morning on the picturesque turf courts of the Country Club at Westchester, -with an entry list of thirty-three, including some of the high ranking players of the country. Mrs. Molla Bjursted Mallory, three times former national champion, and Miss Eleanor Goss, No. % in the national ranking Let, are the logical finalists, being on opposite sides of the draw. Miss Goss reached into the round before the semi-final, by means of a bye and two victories, and an idea of the pace at which she was going may be gathered when it is pointed out that she lost only two games in the four sets she played. Mrs. Mallory moved at quite as swift a pace, vanquishing Miss Jessie Gott by a score of ?8?f, 6?0 and always holding herself in check. Under the guidanc? of Miss Florence Eallin, New Jersey state champion, who is running the tourney, the orig? inal field was reduced to fifteen sur? vivors late in the afternoon. The singles will be brought into tha semi? final round this afternoon and a start made in the women's doubles. Mrs. Mallory's backhand was going extremely well in the match with Miss Gott, and many of the former cham? pion's points were earned as she ripped these shots at beautiful angles across the court. Miss Gott found it prac? tically impossible to cover up the holes in her court, for Mrs. Mallory was acing her continually with shots that cither hit the lines or came within inches of them. Miss Goss first took on Mrs. Wallach and romped through the match in spec? tacular fashion, winning twelve games in a row as she drove and served with great severity and then moved to tho net to finish off the points. She wta even better against Miss Winn, allow? ing the latter only two games. Miss Odette Feder, a tennis prot?g? of Mrs. Mallory's. was defeated in the second round by Mrs. Percy Wilbourn, the 3ets going at 6?1, 6?2, after put? ting up a good battle. She shows a tendency to hurry her strokes at pres? ent and is utterly lacking in tourna? ment experience, but under Mrs. Mal? lory's tutoring and with her natural tennis ability she should go far. Mr?. Wilbourn was going very well. Miss Seavey Rallies Mrs. Benjamin F. Briggs, of Pelham, after running away with the first set at 6?1 against Miss Evelyn Seavey, of i Kansas City, was forced to the limit in the second set, the games going to 8?6. Miss Seavey 'a strokes are exe? cuted in perfect form and she create? a very favorable impression, but yester? day she was inclined to go for the net without having first opened the way with forcing shots; but even so, she kept Mrs. Briggs on the run all through the final set. Miss Marguerite Davis, of St. Paul, one of the very best of the Middle West stars, defeated Miss Margaret Kidder at 6?0, 6?1, in the second round, and her playing indicated that she may make a formidable bid for the final bracket in Miss Goss's half. Mrs. de Forest Candce won a hard three-set match at 4?6, 6?3, 6?2, from Miss Gertrudo Delia Torre, with most of th* play from back-court. Miss Lillian Scharman, of Brooklyn, a young player who showed fine prom? ise last, winter in the Heights Casino's annual indoor tournament, justified j much of the confidence placed in her by defeating Mrs. G. B. Hirsch yester- j day by a score of 6?3, &?6. Miss Scharman has many of the physical characteristics and actions that mark the good player, and her ground strokes [ are made with plenty of pace and in j fine form. This morning she will face Mrs. Edward Raymond. Mrs. Edward V. Lynch, Eastern New j York State champion, gained her third round bracket by defeating Mrs. Albert Humphries, of New Rochelle, by a score of 6?2, 6?4, holding her own in the long driving rallies from deep court and showing superiority when she ? closed in at the net to volley. 25 to 1 Shot Home First In the St. Leger Stakes DON'CASTER, England, Sept, 8.?The St. Leger Stakes of ?6,500, run here to? day, was won by an outsider, Caligula, I owncl by F. O. Goculdas, quoted in this ! morning's betting at 25 to 1. Sir Edward Hulton's Silvern was sec- j ond and Lady James Douglas's Mant?n was third. Fourteen horses ran. The? favorite for the event was Spion Kop, the Derby winner, which was unplaced.! The race was for entire colts and fil- i lies foaled in 1917, and was over the St. Leger course of about one mile six i furlongs and 132 yards.
