THE EVENING STAR Washington, D. C. MONDAY, MAT 11, IMS Rolling Road Stages Strong Home Finish For State Golf Title By Merrell Whittlesey The Maryland State Golf Asso ciation team championship re mained a home-course tourna ment to the end. Rollins Road and Congres sional each had played three straight matches on their home courses to reach the final. In an experiment yesterday the teams were split, Congressional’s 1-3-5 brackets playing at borne and the 2-4-5 brackets at Ca tonsville. The Coiigressioal players who remained at home won, 6-3. The Rolling Road players who stayed home won, 8-1, for an 11-7 tri umph. In the four-round champion ship, 12 of the 14 home teams had won matches. In the only exceptions. Arg y1 e defeated Washington Golf and Country Club over the Washington course and Baltimore Country Club won at Green Spring Valley. The latter match was no contest over any course. Losers Wanted Neutral Course. The players at Congressional yesterday were lukewarm to the test. Most of them believed splitting the teams was better than one team playing at home, but that playing over a neutral course was the solution. With six players on each team at Rolling Road and six playing at Congressional, the title match fell somewhat flat. After the Congressional players had won, 6-3 over their home course, Wif fy Cox and Bill Bassler, Char ley’s kid brother, went to the phone to call Rolling Road. Bassler asked one of the boys in the shop for the score and then repeated it so everybody in the Congressional shop could hear. That’s all there was to it. Rolling Roard’s only previous victory in the series was in 1929. Congressional won last in 1938. Charlie Bassler Misses Play. The Rolling Road team de feated Manor, Bonnie View, Argyle and Congressional 1 for the title. With the exception of Charley Bassler, who missed yesterday’s match, and Spencer Overton, its players are little known here. Overton is the Maryland State Senior champion who has held the Maryland Open and Amateur titles and is a 16- time club champion at Rolling Road. Otherwise the Rolling Road team is made up mostly of week end golfers. Two of their play ers are former public links cham pions, Charley Yearick, Baltimore titlist, and Joe Vaeth, Clifton Park champ. Clare Emery, who played the pro spot for the entire series for Congressional, contributed 11 V 2 of a possible 12 points with his amateur partners in the top bracket. Emery had six birdies yesterday. The only other win ners for Congressional were Parker Nolan and Gene Pittman, who, like Emery and Eddie Gal liher, swept three points. The losers were without three of their regulars, Billy Shea, Dick Preuit and Jack Branch. ROLLING Fn.. lit CONGRESSIONAL, 7. Rollinr Road.
