It la a difficult matter to sit her« at a desk and coach a player In the Held by means of absent treatment on bow to play golf. Golf Is a great game, but. personally, we are not a» enthusiastic over It as we used to l)e. It may be good exercise to bat u small white ball over an 18-holo course In a mountainous country, even exhilarating, but It's fatiguing. Besides. you have to pack along an amenai of Scnegamblan war clubs, or have a small boy to do the work for you, thus making yourself liable to arrest by the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children. Golf also lias other drawbacks. When you swat a golf ball with the most honor able Intentions In the world In an effort to send It from the tee to the fair green, and the ball Instead of'going In the di rection advertised, knocks off the horn of a patient bovine or hits an Innocent by stander below the bell, It seems llko en ergy wasted. Moreover, there Is not much excitement In crawling ihruugh thistles and hla< k-eyed sus» ns on your hands and knees without a search warrant In an ef fort to find a lost ball and And a green snake Instead. > When wo tlrst began to play golf wo bought balls by the crate, tike Rooky ford melons, they come cheaper that way. We have enough lost golf balls planted hero and there over the course where we used to play to found an asylum fur the blind. Wo can name half a doson caddies who have grown rich beyond the fondest dreams of avarice by tlndmg golf trails we had lost when they were caddying for us and Innocently selling them buck to us at reduced rates. It looks a lot easier than It really Is to aplt on your hands and back off and hit a golf ball roosting on it small heap of sand with a live foot stick. You will begin to realise this when you hit tho earth behind It with such force as to shatter the windows In adjacent suburban homes and raise enough dust to capitalise a battleship factory. Wo never really realised the'posHib'UUes of golf until one day the head of our driving club flew off and knocked a baby out of « carriage on Commonwealth avenue—not tint I we had swatted fell into Boston Harbor, barely missing a returning excursion boot from Nontaskct and leading the excited passengers to believe themselves to be on the tiring lino of the guns from one of the Island forta. But If you are bent on playing go'f here are a lew simple rules which may help ball you: A matched foursome may go through a pair. A gent from the tenderloin may go through a man with money In an alley. It la bad form to hit the cuddy In the eye with the ball. A single player has no standing, but he may alt down and watch others play. Lost halls count «1 each against the player losing the ball. If you strike your opponent behind the car when driving. It counts aga'nst him. In order to keep the dust out of your eyes, shut them tightly whin you go to strike at the ball. In playing gulf, avoid a hlgh-ball— that s all.
