—--- BLmeVILUS '(ARK.): COUftlfift APRIL aO, CHEF CHIOZZA FRIES GIANTS - - By Krenfc "" Also G u a v cl A g a i n s I Q Duelling When ting Ssys Nelson J ul- •BY 11YUON \Vintifr of > 11)37 Augusta Masters Tournament After I had been caddying nlwul a year and n .halt, Ted LoiiBworth. professional of tlic Glen Gardei: Country Club of ml Worth, took a liking lo me. Ik- gavs me a job helping him around (In; .shop. 1 worked for him throughout the slimmer of 1023, shining clubs ami doing all sorts of odd Jobs II was tougli. There were about 300 members al. the elub ami o:isb would come out and piny on Saturdays nnd;. I'd have lo clean SCO rcls of clubs on Siilnrdiiy nicliL aiid then clean them nil over again on Sunday .night because l/niis- worih wouldn'1 let me leave them fiom one <hy (o tlie next. But I liked tile Job because it a chance lo undlce. I would tang the ball around ovary <iay and play about three morn- Ing-: n wesi l got pretty cowl, loo. especially With llic short sr.ols, because I d l oiilsidc Hit! pro's shop and chip it ball across Hie load and then run over am! cliip it back So when tbc cuddies' louinu- mcnt came nroimd Ibe followin 1 ,' December I won It.. I shot a 70. but I iLtllv B.isn't, that good. I was very lucky. And, of course, il was a. real short course wilh an easy 71 r hint one-null greens tint 'tij • ; iVIasttir llur Circcus 1'lrsl Tiiat'5 KOinctliini!, incidentally, lor a beginner nr n 100-shooler lo remember, llnjlcr the greens Iirst. Pulling is thc most important department of (lie game. You '.'(in recover from n bad drive or bad Ions iron. but. nolhint; can 'bring b.ick i lost slioke on' the greens, and around them. Tlie first tiling I do when a pu- liil coni"s lo mo Is'lo tnke him over on Ihe putting green. Then we move buck from there. The lee comer, last. Learn Hint pulling first. ; Then, maybe, jou can shoot a 79 and still u:> "missing your drives like I w,is thai tiny ivhen l won llic caddies' tournament. Tlie first Ihinj; about putting is lo be rehxe 1 Don't crouch over the ball loo mi!cli, Spvr-rnl yrarc nflei- I started pluylnj slen-.iilv 1 started lo crouch "nil the boys began falling me "Thrc?-Piitr Nelson beraiisc I had tlirco pulls on 12 greens oul of :IG in Hi: national Amateur. So don't croiidi. stand witli .vour weight chilly distributed on uolh fe"t and stand fairly creel. Feel comfortable. In gripping the dull keep your thumbs, perpendicular lo the club shaft so Hint your wrists have n fri" an I easy pendulum motion. And witch your shoulders in ut- lins. Don't move lliein ton much —jmt n lillle bit. Too many beginners puot their shoulders ami tliey lose accuracy. If you are troubled by overpul- ting llic ball, shorlcu up your back- swing. And don't forget lo follow •through on your putt. Don't rhop at Ihe bill—sort of push it. nlong and let your clubhcad follow be- Wnrt it as [hough you were nc- 1 tnaPy tfyinz lo put tlic club into the,hole with thc ball. J.-ikf3 Farrell Grip As for grip I've always used thc Johnny FarrDll grip because Johnny won the National Open thc year I, started caddying. He was the talk of the country then and became my idol. Fiirrell puts both thumbs on the shaft artl lets the little finger of. the right hand ovcfian the third finsscr o[ thc Icll. MinMn? ilir fourth finger fo lay'lightly across the fingers of the right hand. I find this a most effective grip for accuracy anrl sle-Hirayj, but others are just as good. Just its important as pjittin^ is you: work around th? srei-ns— run-«p s^ois and chip:; and sxplo- Eions from traps. On y.nur chips IV;': an open F.limce.'.ts insure re- Inxation -On run-ups kc:r> your Uad« slightly closed, hit tho hall en" Ihc right foot mid keep your l:;ir,rlr, ahead of Ite clu'ohead. 5'layins; out o[ n trap yati should fir-t 0"! yocrselt firmly in the Jirj u-.n-' tlio open stance sc tlial you 'can cut the tall.and set it inlo the air. The most common fault oi many amateurs Is that they take too inuih san:l, anri not eriMij'n ball. This is mainly V^c-m ; they fail to folio through completely. i>E.\T: Byron McUon will lei you how to step hooking, nnd the- imporliiicc of keeping tool in llic heal of battle. ito-M X* CHIOZZA CONDUCTS SvtZESWI.
