Taking the bat and starting for the

"The 'Old Dash' is himself again."
He tapped the plate with his bat and

One strike was called on him but

journey to the South and pick up
right where he left off in the North.
land. The Bermuda fairways are
slightly different from the Northern
fairways. Bermuda gram is the only
thing that will grow on a sandy soil
in the hot weather.
The type of shot required for these
fairways is something akin to the
play on a hard surface as frossn
ground. The ball must be hit first
otherwise the shot is ruined. The
club will stick in the sand or got
tangled In the many long roots of
the grass and naturally the stroke
will not turn out as planned.
Pros are accustomed to taking turf
with nearly every iron shot. It is
not so much a habit as it is a necessity
to control the ball. But pros, all of
us in fact, score quite as well down
south with other methods.
The ball can be picp4up as clean.
