t 1 Ml. MOUS, J ' inll PROS FLOCK TO INWOOD SEEKING RICH PRIZE TITLE BRINGS By ROBERT E. HARLOW. CoMnopelttan News Service Special Carrespondeat. NEW YORK, July 9. —Professional golfers from all sections of America, filled up with stories of the rise and wealth of Gene Sara cen have come to Long Island seeking the Golden Fleece which Sarazen wrested from the. field last year when he won the American open golf championship at Skokie and which has made Sarazen’s life One sweet dream ever since. If the facts in the last twelve months of Sarazen’s career were Written down they would compare with a tale in the Arabian Nights or any fairy story, for Sarazen’s win at Skokie opened a new world to the twenty-one-year-old native born son of Italian parents. Never before was a golf champion feted as Sarazen has been and never before did a winner of the American championship make as much money out of the title as Sarazen. For twelve months Sarazen’s brother professionals have been reading of Sarazen’s triumphal march over the United States and Europa, of how he has been honored at banquets and of the money he has earned playing exhibition golf. The American open championship title, therefore, has taken on a brighter hue than ever before. When Freddy MacLeod won the same title at Myopia back in 1908 he played just . two exhibition matches and received probably 1100 additional money because he held the title. Freddy told me that he was “born too soon.” Gene Sarazen has made about $25,000 out of the title and enoyed a twelve months tour about the golfing universe. The game has taken such a hold on the American people that the open championship is a rich prize for a professional golfer to win. It is no wonder that the boys have flocked to Inwood some 809 strong, for most every golfer fives in the hope that some day he will fall into a stride that will carry him to the American championship title. It Is safe to say that the man who wins at Inwood will be in a position to earn $20,000 before the 1924 championship and that he will have the opportunity of seeing both America and Great Britain under the most favorable circumstances. Then there will be an enormous amount of personal fame, for these days, a golf champion is quickly ■ecognized and pointed out. Walter Hagen, the world’s great est competitive golfer, no sooner stepped off a train at Old St. Enochs station in Glasgow in May than Scotchmen all around could be heard telling their pals that Walter Hagen was in the station. Hagen Is quickly recognized In all parts of America, even by those who dq not play golf; Hagen's rise to golfing fame and fortune was over a much slower route than Sarazen’s, for Hagen won his first American champion ship at Chicago in 1914'and it was not until he became the first Ame.-i --can-born player to win the British •pen championship, at Sandwich, last year, that he became a great international star and a big money darner. The opportunity for champions to earn what must be considered big money in golf, although it hardly compares with Shelby’s distressing $300,000, has come in the last three years, but it has come in a rush. It was the Brit ish stars, Harry Vardon and Ted Ray, and later George Duncan and Mitchell, who opened the eyes of the professional golfers to the rich fruits a champion might earn. ** Then Hagen and Joe Kirkwood demononstrated the earning power of superlative golf, by playing more than 120 exhibition? in nine months, from July 4, 1922, until April 10, this year, and earning in exhibitions and competitions close to $60,000 for a net profit each of mors than $20,000. Jock Hutchison and Jim Barnes, following their winning of the Brit ish and American championships, and Sarazen. following his win at Skokie, all earned handsome sums. So it is small wonder that the professionals are applying them selves with great diligence to per fecting their shots. •But It is hard for a newcomer to break through. Hagen, Hutchison. Barnes, and Sarazen. the only players in America today who pos sess a large earning capacity as exhibition golfers are all in the lists at Inwood, each eager to maintain bis own prestige as an exhibition player. Many believe that Arthur Havers, the newly crowned Brit ish open champion, made a mis take by not coming to play in the American championship for no man has yet been able to win both these major titles in the same year. To become a double winner jg the ambition of Walter Hagen; that and to surpass the record of Harry Var don. who has registered seven wins In major championships. Vardon has won the British title six time* and the American once. Hagen has won the British once and the Amer ican twice, but he is only thirty and Vardon is past the fifty mark. Barnes needs a big win to put him back where he was two years ago. Sarazen would clinch his ex alted position by a win at Inwood; Hutchison could use the title to ad vantage. So it will be seen how the players who have arrived at the top must fight to hold their places with a great number of very talented players striving to break through and thus become the hero in thia year’s fairy story American golf.

Wan- EVANS EXPLAINSHOW TO USE JIGGER By CHARLES (CHICK) EVANS, JR. The club should be gripped in the fingers, not the palms, about the middle of the leather—somewhat lower down if the clubhead is not weighty enough. I put my thumbs down the shaft, but only the slender inner side of them resting on it. The hands should be close together so that they cannot work against each other. The finger grip should be firm, but not tight, with the club balancing easily and the clubhead feeling like a weight. Place your feet on a nearly straight line; open a little if neces sary for freer motion but not enough to interfere with right shoulder. Feel ready to race for the hole. Turn toes out for better pivot and 4-- place feet far enough apart to give , a feeling of solidity. Stance should ( be wider in the wind. j 1 Play the ball off the left heel. Be I 1 careful not to get it too far back | , and do not get ahead of it. Stand I at a comfortable distance from it; 1 | a little closer for a high flight, or J in the wind. Stand comfortable with mod erately upright position of the 1 body; relaxed, well-balanced, but 1 steady enough to preserve balance 1 in wind. Stand more upright for normal flight and bend low for 1 lower flight, but do not crouch so much that poise is upset. i Bend knees somewhat and keep right heel down for even distribu tion of weight. Hold your shoulders straight to start stroke. Hold the club lower down so that the clubhead can lie naturally. The natural loft must do the work. Dower the left hand, and remember that you cannot hit with wrists ' turned up. Have in mind two ‘ imaginary lines before starting to ] hit the ball, one vertical to it, the < other running frpm a few inches back of it and passing through it to the hole. 1 Keep your hands back of the ver line, but hold them out rather than close in. Find the back direc tion line and keep your eye on the 1 ball. When the blade is in position, facing the ball at right angles, it is best for the sake of rhythm to start to move it and to keep it in motion; this motion begins with a vibratory movement, continues into the forward press and then flows into the stroke.

INWOOD COUNTRY GOLF CLUB, L. 1., July 9.—The Inwood Country Club course could not be in better condition for the open golf championship of America. It provides a fine test of golf, and because of this I look for one of the better known players to win. The course compares with Troon, where the British open was played when considered as a whole, but Troon provided a much harder finish. The difficult holes at Inwood are at the start of the round. I waa surprised this morning to notice that no scorers were sent out with the players. This is the first time that scorers have not been used in an open championship. The professionals appreciate this courtesy. There is a very high standard of honor among the pro fessionals and they are very careful to keep a correct score. The field here* is the largest to ever compete in a championship. There arc some who complain that it is too large and that many of the starters do not play well enough to be permitted to compete but I do not agree with this atti tude, which is a selfish one. The open championship provides the one big get-together the professionals have and all the boys should be allowed to play. If the time comes when the field is too large to be handled in a week’s time, sectional quali fying rounds should be held, but no professional should be denied an opportunity to contest for the open title. I believe that Walter Hagen is the best individual bet in this field and that the other favorites are Gene Sarazen, MacDonald Smith, Jock Hutchison 'and Bobby Jones. Hagen, Sarazen and Smith have the advantage of having competed in a number of high class compe titions in Great Britain. This has given them confidence as well as practice under fire. Jock Hutchison is qualifying to day. I remember that last year at Skokie, Hutchison qualified on the first day and played the most bril liant golf of that meeting, being under seventy in each round. But the long wait for the cham pionship proper took the edge off Jock's keenness and he did not have the same touch when the championship was played. Jock is of the temperament which makes it difficult for him to warm up twice in one week. Gene Sarazen also qualified to day and he will take no chances whatever. His experience at Troon, where he failed to qualify by a single stroke has taught him never to take a qualifying round too eas ily. Gene will try and lead his field today. Qualifying will not be too easy for only the eighteen lowest scores and ties for eighteenth place on each of the qualifying days will get in. I think scores of 157 will about make it if the weather holds as good as it is today. HARVARD-YALE TEAM ARRIVES IN ENGLAND PLYMOUTH, July 9.—The com bined Harvard-Yale track team, which sailed from New York June 30 on the steamship America, has arrived here, where it immediately entrained for London. The mem bers will begin their training at Cambridge and finish at Oxford. Macks Fall Hard. Connie Mack’s Athletics are fall ing hard. They dropped six out of seven games played last week. all bases ~ ’ L 1,, - f-r The Griffs are six games behind . the second place Indians today, and two in the rear of the Brownies. Joe Judge is now threatened with water on the knee, and may be out of the lineup until the Griffs re turn home on July 28. George Burns . collected -four bingles off the Cleveland hurlers yesterday, including one two-bag ger. • Senor Luque again had the Giants eating out of his hand and the Cin cinnati Reds made it two straights with a 5-to-3 win. It was the lit tle Cuban’s third victory over the McGraw men. Making his first start of the year, Clyde Barfoot outpitched Grimes, and the Cardinals whitewashed the Dodgers, 4 to 0. Sad Sam Jones came to Joe Bush’s rescue in the ninth inning against St Louis, and the Yanks came through with a 6-to-4 victory. Bumping out nineteen hits apiece, the Indians and Red Sox engaged in a slugfest which went to Speak er’s tribe, 15 to 10.

There is far more i interest in this heavyweight i clash than there was in the i Shelby affair. More or less romance has been spun about the South American. There is a tendency to make him another superman of the ring. He will undoubtedly enter the ring against Willard a favor ite, but nevertheless there is a strong sentiment in favor of the former champion because of his extraordinary comeback against Floyd Johnson a few months ago. Willard will be in even than against Johnson. GRIFFMENGLOSE STAY IN GHI TODAY Big Crowd Sees White Sox Tri umph Over Johnson by 4 to 2.
