Ingly small measure to the history of
golf in the United States. It is the
professional money match.

Still, the love of the money match is
by no means dead in my native coun
try. It still asserts Itself from time to
time and as a rule, it gives rise to
thrtU. ?nch a. not even a champion
ship excites often. So far as I have
Seen able to judge, this kind of rivalry
ne. never appealed Particular y strong
ly to American professionals: at least,
one cannot recall many instances of
the issuing of challenges. It H
pity, because the money ,:natch Is
splendid training for a young and
ambitious golfer. Even though he
loses It. he comes out of it with a
lot more knowledge and experience and
sbility to keep his head on a big oc
casion than he possessed before he
went Into It. ' ' ,
Personally. I have found the truly
strong wine of golfing strife con
tests for staked sums, and the sense
of responsibility which they have im
posedthe necessity of making the
effort of a lifetime to be supreme has
done my game no small me" u re of
rood Frankly, they are-not handsome
ly remunerative: one may win the other
man's 100, but the engagements that
one has to sacrifice to prepare proper
ly for the contest and the expense, that
are entailed mean that there is not a
great deal of profit to show for a hard
earned triumph. And there Is always
a loser as well as a winner. But
although they are generally called
"money matches." I am not considering
them from the monetary point of view.
It is their- influence which is valuable.

Matty is not the only ballplayer who
can play a good game of golf. Art

eontested with Willie Park. Jr., over
the North Berwick and Ganton courses
in 1899. I had beaten Park by a
stroke in the open championship of the
previous season at Prestwlck (he had
missed a putt ot four feet on the last
green to tie with me) and he was soon
out with a challenge.
It took us the best part of a year
to agree on terms; we were both aching
for the match, but Park wanted part
of it to be played at Musselburgh, the
home of bis famous family, and l oia
not relish that idea. I had always been
treated in a sporting way by the Mus
selburgh crowd, but its reputation in
connection with money matches in
which a local golfer was engaged was
such that one could not take the -risk
that seemed to me to be involved. When
old Tom Morris met Willie Park, Sr.,
there in l5o, the spectators Interfered
so frequently with Morris' ball that the
referee had to stop the match, and I
believe . that J. H. Taylor had a
harrassing time of it when he opposed
Willie Park. Jr., at Musselburgh In
1897. The many miners and others in
the neighborhood are intensely en
thusiastic golfers, but they are parti
sans to the backbone, and the visiting
golfer who opposes a . local favorite
in a big match stands a considerable
chance of being worried completely off
bis game.
Horseshoe Harled for Lack.
Well, we agreed at last to play at
North Berwick a links which Park
knew welland Ganton. I shall never
forget the condition of pent-up hope
and expectancy in which I approached
that contest. For days before it began
people seemed fo be talking of nothing
bur the golf -match, and the limit ot
embarrassment was reached when, on
the evening preceding the start. I went
for a walk with my brother Tom. "Big
Crawford, one of the best known of
North Berwick caddies and a rare char

round a corner and hurled a huge
horseshoe at me. I dodged and Just

looked like doing. I am not sure that
there would have been any match at
all. He explained excitedly that he
had put all his money on roe and
wanted to bring me luck. That, at any
rate, was a consolation which subdued
rising wrath.
For long-drawn-out tension, I re
member nothing quite like the first
hour and a quarter of that contest We
began by halving ten holes in succes
ston: each of us was on tenterhooks
all the while, wondering who would be
the first to take the lead.
At the 11th hole, where the spell was
broken, a curious thing happened. Park
bad the honor, and when I drove my
ball pitched plumb on top of his and
knocked it forward. We did not see
the Incident from the tee. but the fore-
caddies witnessed it and reported it
directly we arrived on the scene. I

could not fail at a putt or do anything
badly. It was just one of those happy
periods which every golfer strikes oc
casionally. I won by 11 and 10, a far
more easy victory than ever I had ex
pected to gain.
For capacity to stir the emotions,
the second greatest match in which I
was ever engaged was the foursome
in which Taylor and I met James
Braid and Alexander Herd over four
greens, St. Andrews, Troon, St. Anne's-on-the-Sea
and Deal. In 1905. That
event also aroused endless discussion,
and the crowd at St. Andrews, where
we started, was almost awe-inspiring.
Estimates varied as to the number of
people present; some put it at 16,000
and others at 8000. Certainly the lat
ter must have erred on the side of
moderation. When we drove off the
spectators were packed many deep tht
whole way down either side of a fair
way 365 yards long, while there were
thousands of people round the teeing
ground and the putting green.
What I remember chiefly about that
match was the desperateness of the
struggle In the first 36 holes. First,
one side and then the other would
gain an advantage; It was called
"England vs. Scotland," because the
pairs happened to be so constituted,
and I tell you that at St Andrews they
are all for Scotland.
Crowd Cheers and Groans.
At ono point, where the English ball
began to roll down a slope towards a
bunker, there were cheers from the
Scottish partisans, followed by groans
when the ball stopped two feet short
of the hazard. However. It was real
excitement, and at the end of the day
Taylor and I were two down. The
amazing circumstance that stands out
In bold relief In the recollection was
that never a ball hit anybody. There
were spectators enough, in all con
science, and they were wild beyond
the dreams of authoritative control.
My only memory of the second half
of the contest at Troon is that the
crowd about 10.000 strong was a
great deal more excitable than at St
Andrews; that Taylor and I played
under the Influence of a divine Inspi
ration such as 6eldom has visited us.
and that a man kept on playing a
cornet on the edge of the last green,
presumably for the benefit of people
who were not keen on the golf.
Taylor and I left Troon with a lead
of 12 boles, so that we had nothing
about which to worry when we went
to St Anne's for the third stage of
the contest Indeed, the only trouble
at that course was that Herd had a

said Herd, and that ultimately settled
the question.
When Braid was my partner In a '
foursome for flOO a side with Duncan
and Mayo some years ago, we hit upon
a daring and successful plan.
The first half of the match had to
take place at Tlmperley, near Man
chester, a wet and muddy course In
the season In which we played. The
referee was asked to decide whether -the
green was fit for golf, and. rather
to our astonishment, he said "Yes." -Braid
and I resolved to make the best i
of the situation, and as the fairway
was neither more nor less than soft
mud into which the ball would sink,
we agreed to drive into the rough,
where there was stubbly grass that
