Takes Women's Title.
SEATTLE. Wash.. June 27. (Spe
cial.) Unable to overcome a handicap
: of four up, which his opponent held at
the end of the morning's play, by fall
ing: down in his putting at crucial mo
ments, H. Chandler Egran, of Medford,
Or., representing the Waverly Club, of
Portland, the former National amateur
champion, was vanquished by Jack
Neville, of the Claremont Country Club,
of San Francisco, in the finals of the
Pacific Northwest championship at the
links of the Seattle Golf Club today
before one of the largest galleries that
ever witnessed an important golf match
in this city.
Miss Violet Pooley, of Victoria, won
the women's Pacific Northwest cham
pionship from Mrs. A. V. Macan, also
. of Victoria, in a brilliant 18-hole game
by five up and three to go.
Neville Sets Record.
Neville for the last two days ha
been playing metropolitan golf of th
highest quality, and this morning in
the first round of the big 36-hoIe con
test established a new record for the
local course, when he completed th
round in 69 strokes. The result of
the match, -a five and four-victory for
the Californian, does not mean that
Esran was playing poor golf, despite
tailing down in his putting, but truth
fully it indicates the crowning effort
of Neville, who today played one of
the best games in his remarkable
By winning today's match, Neville
now holds the undisputed Pacific
Coast amateur honors.
Failing to consider the remarkable
pace at which the southerner was trav
ellng, many people in the gallery were
of the opinion that the former N
tional champion. Egan, was playing in
very bad form, but this impression
certainly was not true, as Egan, out'
side of a few sessions on the greens,
put up, on the whole, a fine quality

Had Egan's brilliant putt on the fifth
hole of the second round, which rimmed
the cup and rested on 'the edge, been
holed, making him but one down, and
if he had won the sixth hole, as every
body expected after . the drives, he
would have, as his opponent was in
the bunker and he had a well-placed
tee shot almost up the green, there
would be a mighty different story to
write about the match. This was the
opinion of experts who carefully
watched the game from start to fintsh,
as if such had been the case. Egan
would have acquired new vtgor and

out when pitcher covered home and
catcher recovered, but a spectator got
in the way. Is the player entitled to
score, or should he go back to third?
Answer Umpire should have sent
man back to third in this particular
case, but he. also should have seen to
it that the crowd was back far enough
to allow the teams playing room.

Friends Are Blamed for Mystifying
Him With Advice Intended to
Be Helpful "Hitch" Called
Effect and Xot Cause.
With the international golf play In
Europe over, golfers generally are di
gestingr the results, which implies the
pulling to pieces of the styles of Amer
ica's great players. Vardon, the Eng
lish professional, himself has taken I
hand In the discussion, and in the July
number of Outing gives some advice to
Jerome D. Travers, the American en
trant. He says:
"I cannot help thinking that even
Travers. excellent and successful play
er though he is, would be better off if
he would give himself up wholly for
some time to the task of mastering his
This is exactly the ground that has
been taken by others in connection
with Travers' play of late, in which
his wildness on the tee was noticeable.
It was said that the only thing Travers
needs to do to correct his style is to
shorten the up-swing; that the main
trouble is his overswinglng, which
sends the head of the club down to
ward the left heel.
With the club brought up only as
high as a horizontal position, this
tendency to overswing would be cor
rected and greater straightness would
be obtained. Travers has probably been
mystified by some of his friends, who
have spoken of a "hitch" at the top of
the swing. This "hitch" consists sim
ply and solely of the overswing. By
dropping the head of the club at the
top of the swing the right elbow is ele
vated until it seems to have been
Jerked up. It is the effect rather than
the cause of his drive error.
