10 GOLF THE COURIER-JOURNAL, LOUISVILLE, MONDAY MORNING, AUGUST 28, 1944, BASEBALL Shaw's Magic On 9 Pays Off Cherokee Champ Beats Larmee 2 Up for Ky. Muni Golf Title . By EARL RUBY, Courier-Journal Sports Editor. Fithian Shaw's magic on the ninth hole at Seneca brought him the Kentucky municipal links championship Sunday. The Cherokee titlist, who was seven under par on the 460-yard ninth on five earlier rounds, bagged two more birdie fours on the slightly dogleg par-5 stretch and won the hole both times from Ken Larmee, his final-round opponent. He finished with a winning margin of two up. Larmee, who has held the championship of his home course et Stearns, Ky., , seven times, swapped holes back .and forth with the big blond basher from Cherokee, and held the advantage on two occasions, but when he reeded a hole the most No. 9 and Mr. Shaw got together and that was every bit of it. SHOOTS 78-79 Both boys played unusually good golf, considering the cold and the drizzling rain which fell most of the day. Shaw's card showed a 77 and a 78, and Larmee's a 79 and an 81. Larmee never was off line with his woods, but frequently found trouble with his short irons. The soggy greens buffaloed him, but as the holes began to run out it was superb play on the carpets that enabled him to carry the match to the 26th cup. Shaw outdrove Ken, was more daring with his irons and more confident with his putter. He played all of his shots quickly and with assurance, but, became perhaps a little careless at times. LARMEE UP Larmee drew the first advantage with a par 4 on the second hole of the morning. Shaw leveled with a birdie four on the third when Larmee missed a putt. Ken recaptured the lead on the fourth with a par 3 and went three up with par four on the fifth and a birdie deuce on the seventh. Shaw took the eighth with a par 4 and birdied the ninth to reduce the edge to one up. Shaw leveled on 10 with a par 4. Birdies on 12 and 13 gave Shaw a 2-cup advantage. Larmee cut it one with a par on 14, lost 15 when his ball snaked into a trap, and knifed the advantage again to one with a par 3 on 17. They halved 18. Ken leveled on the first hole of the afternoon, but soon was dragging by four, as Shaw took 2. 4, 5, and 6 with pars. Ken rallied with a long putt on eight and then up jumped No. 9 again and Shaw was four up at the turn. SCUFFLES Larmee took the next three with two pars and a bird, and then, with six holes left to play, began scuffling for his life. Shaw closed the door on 16 and 17 and both times Larmee squeezed back in. Then on the 18th (36th of the match), Shaw still one up, Ken was near the edge of the green in two and Shaw was on the apron. Shaw pitched to within 12 feet of the pin and Larmee rolled about 30 feet past. Larmee lagged up and Shaw sank to win the hole and the match. Vic Hill won the second flight from Ed Barrow, 6 and 5. Miss Vema Stone won the ladies championship by beating Miss Florinne Starr 5 and 4. The tournament was conducted ably by Jos. S. Dickson, U.S.G.A. public links committeeman, assisted by Gordon Guernsey, Falls Cities Golf Association president, and Carroll Weisiger. Rain Won't Stop Fair Horse Show By KEN TAYLOR, Assistant Sports Editor. It will take a lot more rain than Louisville has had in the last 48 hours to interfere with the Kentucky State Fair horse show whith opens this afternoon at 1:30, Ray Purdy, manager of the show, emphasized Sunday night. "Since the Churchill Downs track is sandy, it will not become dangerous for the horses during the showing and because there are so many seats under roof, rain such as we have been having will not cause postponement of any ession," the manager said. Almost 300 horses are quartered in the barns on the backstretch and others are due throughout the first part of the week for appearance in classes on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The owners and trainers are here to show and rain will not deter them from showing, Purdy said. TEATER HERE If rain should cause postponement of some classes or entire sessions, we either could telescope some of the programs, or extend the show through next Sunday and Monday. At any rate, all the classes will be shown so that the exhibitors will have opportunity to win all that $32,000 in prize money which has been put up this year." Purdy declared Sunday night. The show is scheduled for afternoon and night sessions for six days. Monday's feature will be the stallion division of the world's five-gaited championship. The title will be decided on Saturday night. As owners and trainers gathered at the Downs, it became known that a Louisville horse. Tycoon, owned by Mr. and Mrs. B. H. Collings, would be ridden by one of the Nation's top trainers and riders. Earl Teater of Brentwood, Tenn. The man, who last year rode Oakhill Chief to the' world's five-gaited championship, has had Tycoon under his care for a couple of weeks and will ride him in the. gelding division of the five-gaited on Wednesday night. All-America Golf Tests Postponed Chicago,, Aug. 27 (UP) Golf's colorful three ring circus, the $42,500 all-American tripleheader, was postponed today as the rain-swept Tarn O'Shanter course became "ui suitable" for championship competition with only 18 holes to play for the Open, Amateur and Women's Open titles. George S. May, Tarn o Shant-er's ebullient president and liberal golf promoter, decided to call off today's finale after a four-hour wait for a slow drizzle to stop. His decision to complete the 72-hole medal play championship Monday marked one of the rare occasions in golf that a major tournament has been postponed because of inclement weather.

George Chicago, Aug. 27 UP) Rain wrecked the final round of the $42,500 ail-American Golf Tournament at Tarn O'Shanter today. But the money-making magic of George ($.) May didn't desert him, despite the deluge which washed away the expected "big day's" gate receipts. Mr. May had rain insurance $10,000 worth for only one day of his seven-day, three-ring fairway free-for-all, and that day (you guessed it) was today. Judges for the show will be: Col. N. Butler Briscoe, Ft. Knox; Gus Blanchard, Shreveport, La., Douglas M. Davis, Lexington; Homer Murray, Woodburn; Claude Pemberton, Elizabeth-town; Vic Robertson, Hardins-burg, and Thomjs M.
