Stranahan has been one of the union's leading amateurs for the last several years and this year ^ook part in several ol the major lonrnaments including the British and U. S. Open. White, although known promin- Mitly only by southern golfers, competed in some of the larger tournaments this year. He forged int.i national prominence this however, when lie led the year, first try Club this week were busy themselves making ready for Sept. 15 when Blythevllle Rets Its first glimpse of golfdom's big time. On that date three of the nation's top" professional golfers tour the new Blythevllte Country Club course In an 18-hole exhibition match. National Open champion Dr. Cary Middlecoff of Memphis, one of polfdoms' leading money winners of Ihe professional circuit, will be among that number, as will p'l-ank •Stranahan of Toledo, o.. one of nation's top amateurs and White, the Greenwood. Miss., •pro who led first-round plav in the U.S. Open last .June only to falter in the closing rounds. This trio or big timers will be joined by Blytheville Country Club's Bill Joe nc-nion, one of the state's leading amateurs and a boy- hnod friend of both Middlfcoff and White, in the evhiwti"n match. Cary, ncnlan Team Midrilrroff and Dcnton. who learned to play golf top:ether in Memphis. Mid who both were golf pals of White, will be teamed in the exhibition encounter against White and Stranahan. The match was arranged by Earl Baker. Blytheville pro and also a friend of Middlecoff. through the Early Maxwell Association of Memnhis, book- in? agents for Middlecoff. The appearance of Middlecoff and Stranahnn here will be one of their many exhibition performances this summer. The two top linksmen have toured several sections of the nation this summer 'pluylng exhibition matches In between the major tournaments. This will be the first time they have r.ot been paired In an exhibition go this summer. Denton. who learned most of his polf on Memphis courses and who now halls from Wilson, is considered by many golf observers as one of the leading amateurs ot this section. Although he has never ^beeti outstanding as a tournament IF player his ability on the fairways has won him considerable praise from Mid-South experts. Middlecoff. who gave up a career in dentistry only three years ago to Join the professional golf ranks, first came into national prominence as a top linksman In 1945 when as a member of the Army Dental Corps, he became the only amateur to win the North and South Open. The following year he was low «matenr in the PGA's Masters Tournament at Augusta, Ga., and the same year he was lotv amateur In the Philadelphia Inquirer's tour-, nament and qualified .for the Na-f anti Motor Coach Employes of tlonal Amateur with a 68 to tie a I America were unable to asree on first-day record. j Ihe union's demand for an increase He "was accepted as a member ' ° f ^ cents an hour, of the U.

Although in recent tournaments Northern and Eastern golf writers have referred to White as a "Comparative unknown" in pro golfing circles, to say that this was true would be r(Uite unfair. He. has been one of the leading southern professionals for many years and has competed with some of the nation's best. He competed in several of the larger lonrnaments this year and forge:! into national prominence in the National open last June when he led the first day's firing. However, he dropped his pace in the later rounds and finished far back of Middlecoff. Tlie Tom 1 linksmen will be of- lically welcomed to Blythevllle on noon of the match date when they appear as guest at a joint meeting of Blytheville civic clubs at Hotel Noble. Following the dinner-meeting the four will singe a free shooting exhibition at the Country Club prior to teeing off for match play at 1:30 p.m. The match will be under the direct supervision of Baker who arranged the booking of the club and who is in charge of all details. Gallery tickets may be purchased at the Country Club and will be placed on sale 'in the business district in the near future.
