National Golf Championship
to Be Decided in Ver
TRAVIS AND FOWNES LOSE
Oulmet-Fownes Match at Mncliestr
Produces Better Golf and Is Far
More Exciting Than That by
MANCHESTER. VL. Bept. 4. Cham
pion Jerome D. Travers. of Upper
Montclatr, and Francis OulmaU of
Woodland, the 1913 open champion,
will meet tomorrow in the final round
of the National amateur golf tourna
ment at the Ek wanok Country Club. In
the seml-flnala today Travers defeated
Walter J. Travis, of Garden City, five
up and three to play, and Oulmet dis
posed of W. C. Fownes, of Oakmont,
The Oulmet-Fownes mntch produced
better golf and was far more exciting
than the contest between the two met
ropolitan veterans. Only once did
either Oulmet or Fownes have an ad
vantage of more than a single hole,
and that 'was when Ouimet won three
In succession in the afternoon round,
only to lose them immediately.
Stymies played an Important part In
the match, Fownes laying three of
them for his opponent. On one of them
Ouimet pulled past Fownes' ball and
took a half. On another occasion he
sent Fownes In for a two and lost the
Oulmet's Pnttlntf Strung.
Finding his early drives rather wild.
Ouimet held back his tee shots and
usually played the odd for the green.
His putting, however, was strong and
his irons sure.
With a lead of one up and two to
play, Fownes missed a two-foot putt
on the seventeenth green, which
evened up the score, and then lost the
contest on the next hole by slicing Into
the rough oa his second.
Both matches proved unusually ex
citing, as Ouimet and Fownes were
never more than a hole apart and
Travers overcame a three-hole early
lead by Travis. Fownes obtained the
advantage at the ninth by playing tho
342 yards under par. Oulmet followed
suit on the tenth, a buu-yaro noie.
which he negotiated in four, once more
squaring the match. Ouimet lost the
fifteenth and a chance for the
eighteenth on stymies.
Travers Shows Weakness.
Travers was surprisingly weak In
his putting on the outward Journey of
his match with Travis. Travis had a
seemingly comfortable lead of three
holes, at the turn, when he began to
play wild. The match was all square
at tho thirteenth and Travers took the
lead for the first time at the fifteenth,
but lost it at the seventeenth, through
poor short-iron work. He ended the
morning play one hole to the good,
Travis being trapped on the last hole.
Travers started poorly In the after
noon, getting trimmed at the secona
hole and lifting. He won the next hole
through poor putting. On the seventh.
Travis was wide off the fair green and
lifted. On the homeward Journey
Travers again played wonderful golf
and took the match in the fifteenth
green, where he holed a 15-foot putt.
