T HAVE been playing Rolf for the ned would say that 1 hae seen some women
A Cross In all parts of the country for who make Rolf too much of a social af-
the last two months, and one thine that
I has Impressed me ery strongly Is the
er large nnd growing number of
ladles, young, mlddlcd-agcd and old (If
ladles tiny cer be said to get old) It
Is a fine sign that this Is becoming rap
Idly a health-appreciating country, for
there is no sport which will put real
roses tn the cheeks so surely as golf,
with Its splendid outdoor exercise. In
observing the play of women I hae i-een
some really rcmaikalile work, and I
appreciate so well the skill tome of the
leading women golfeis show that when
1 was recently challenged to play a
match with one of them, who asked but
a very moderate handicap, I am frank
to say that I was quite doubtful of the
Issue. In addition to obsenlng the play
of many lady golfers, 1 hae taken part
In mixed foursomes with a number of
the best, Including Miss Alea Stirling,
Miss Elaine Hoscnthal and others all of
whom were capable of giving the best
men golfers an exciting battle. I believe
I can pass along to others some sugges
tions which wilt be helpful to women
Most women who play golf today have,
at wme time or other In their lives,
tlev eloped the athletic instinct to play In
tennis, basketball and' In gvmnaHlum
work. All women who have enjoyed this
training should eahlly become excellent
golfers if they will set their minds to It
In an earnest cffoit to become good play
ers. If I may venture a ciltlcibin, I
fair nnd not enough of a real sport
which has for Its object making the
course with the least number of strokes.
1 have discussed the subject of wo
men plavers with n number of prominent
women golfers, and t believe that too
many women start a gams with the Idea,
that there are physical limitations upon
a woman's success In the great game,
while others start out with the wrong
Idea that their style of play should be
distinctly different from golf as men play
An a matter of fact the best women
plavers Tlosely approach the best play
of expel t men golfer", and their stvle
of play Is by no means dissimilar. On
would be Inclined to assume that a
woman's club should be widely different
from times used by a man. As a mat
ter of fact the difference need not be
great. Of course, the weight, length,
thickness of grips, etc , should be adapt
ed to the individual woman player, pre
cisely as they are In the case of men.
Otherwise the underlying principles of
the game are exactly the same, with
the exception, perhaps, that a woman
"cannot take so free and full a cuing
as most men do. Grip and stance should,
how exec duplicate exactly those of a
man. I believe that a woman can de
velop a splendid three-quarter Kwlng
with both wooden and lion clubs, al
though I am aware that many profes
sionals teach their pupils to uwe the
half swing for thee clubs. It Is sur
piislng what a free and open swing a
woman can develop If she onlv believes
she can and approaches) the play deter
mined to accomplish it.

I Buxton Takes a Day Off
1 ran across Cameron B Buxton, our
.local champion, on Chestnut street jes
I terd iy, jnd he had just returned rrom n
, two-dnvs' trip to Shawnee, where he
had been plajlng In a four-ball match
with Mr Orace, Hrggle Worthlngton and
I Bill Hnvvlind, of Chicago It is the first
I Saturdav nnd Sundav off that he has
had In months, for down at Avashlneton
the best he can get is twilight golf, and
ever now a-id then lie runs up to I'me
Va'If v for a Sunday on the links
Lat October Buck plaved at Pine
Vallev with -Mr tirace. ("hick Bvans,
i Oeorge A Clump and Paui Mackall, ns-
slot.int salts manager of the Bethlehem
I Steel Companv At that time Mr. Grace
returni d two cards of D9 and 103 This
was not a reprisentatlve score by any
I meatib for the steel man. for he has play
ed the Country Club of Baltimore in 78,
'ami In- has gone aroubd Seaview in 75
At Shawnee last spring a car, plav Ins
with Chick I.vans. Mackall and Warren
Corkran, he was In the low eighties
Mr. Grace's Marvelous Improvement
Buck sas he has never seen any one
(whose garni Ins Improved so materially
1 in nine months an that of the head of
the big steel companv In the four rounds
I at Shawnee last Saturda.v and Sunday
the Kteelmaster was as low an 78 and
his lilghen round was 81 All of which
Is flue golf, as an.v one who Ins played
the difficult Shswnee course will cheer
fuliv admit
Here we have one of the busiest big
men of the countrv, who carries on his
t shoulders tremendunus responsibilities,
1 who works very hard and whose only
j time fot tecreatlon is Saturdav. s and
Sundiv.s He is too husy a man tn get
an afternoon off. With him golf is a
i dlvtrslon and a tecreatlon and nothing
more He 1st a self-taught golfer and he
I has had verv little professional teaching,
i taking a lecson here and there occasion-
(ifternmn As soon as he can he Is away
for the afternoon round
Steelnustcr Wa'tc No Time
He walks brisMv He never lags he
hind If anv thing, he in a bit ahead of the
other plavers He does not intentionally
get in front, but he Is pushing nlwav s
tow ird the green The moment the last
pu't is holed he Is away to the next tee
He plays quickly but vvlih care and he
has the rare faculty of concentration. He
rarely looks up on his stroke and be has
no serious golf faults As a driver he
will rank with some of the best swatters
from tl v tee In the country He crowds
more pleasure into two davs of golf than
most of us get iu a wiek. He plnvs
his iron shots with judgment and the
rough and hazard? do not bother hint
At times bis putting is uncanny and It is
rare that he takes mnro than two putts
on anv green
Buck believes that the marvelous im
print mem In his game since he plajed
with him last fall at Pine Valley is due
to the fact of constant practice. He has
o le of the "-how places at Bethlehem and
there he has built a hole on his grounds
Vearb ever evening when he is through
with his nvetage arduous day he
motura to h', gtounds and for an hour
I oi so. thanks' to the davllght-savlrg
' plan, he practices And he goes at It
in a ver.v svstemitlo and thorough wav.
There aie traps and bunkers on the
this practice hole and there is a well
built green Heie he can get all the
practice he needs with his wood and
Irons and this pi in of daily practice In
driving, brasspj'ng of plavlng cleek and
mldiron Fhots. of nppioach shots to the
green and wot king on the green with bis
putter has enabled blm to do wonders
with his game As atrcsult his game
is anv where from five to ten strokes bet
ter than hen he played at Pine Val
ley last fall and it demonstrates the
great advantage of constant practice.
Anv golfer can cut as mnfiiy stiokes
off his game if he will do the same But
It must not be haphazard work and
hove all It must be done intelligently
Take the case of Buxton When Buck
first came to Philadelphia from the
South his game was rather indifferent
At times It was brilliant and at others
