Formidable Field IIY ART NEA .Service Golf Wriler Tile nation's lending golf pros rind amateur.s are approaching Au- gusta,'Gn.,'with no lUUo fcnr mill trembling. On the eve of the Masters', Tournament to be held over Bobby Jones' course, April 4-7, a noticeable attack of jitters hns assailed tlic club swingers. I noticed tills .state of affairs on a recent 'tour of Florida. Seeking the reason, I interviewed several outstanding pros, and the general opinion seemed to be that Emperor Jones had rediscovered his pulling •touch. That alone Is sufficient reason for American golfers to doubt tlielr ability to defeat Jones agah In hts own Umnmmcnt. Last, yeai one of their number. Horlon Smith, won the honors', with Crulg Wood, Paul Hunynn, and Bltlj Burke close behind him. But the Joiie.s who scored ijrand slam In 1930 was off his putting. The duplicate of ••Calamity Jane," the old club thk took •him to the. top rung of the jjainc. wns off her stride, and lie lost no fewer than 10 strokes on • the Brcen. That wns calamity for Bobby! Disconcerting reports arc coming put of the south in regard to Bobby's Improved short game and putting. While in Florida, we read n statement Bobby was supposed to have made after a practice round, It was to the effect thai the putting touch he had missed ever since his victories In the British and American Opens and 1930 littd returned, Amateurs In and that he his name. , very much on liwcnporl and struck out, 210 Western League batsmen. That Is Dudley Issues Warning Big Ed Dudley. Augusta pro who witnessed Jones' practice round of 08,-says' It was one of the greatest 18-hole performances he ever had witnessed Jones score. So you can count, upon the entrants in this year's Augusta classic spending a lot of-overtime putting on the practice greens. While the grcatesl veteran shol makers in Hie game will take part in the tournament, It is likely that one of two young professionals will furnish the fireworks. Thcie two youngsters are Harold McSpaden, the Kansas City, Kan, pro who burned up the winter golf season on the west coast, and Henry Picard, Hcrshcy, Pa, pro who has been keeping the i eteraiis in the breadlines (luring the recent Florida season. Picard, classed by Walter Hngcn as the outstanding prospect in the same today, won the Agij'n Cnll- cnte Open, International' Four- Ball matches teamed with Johnny n n'<>% and followed with a victory in Ifie 'S3000 Charleston Open. Has the Poise It Takes The. -winter season has convinced him that he is of • topflight caliber, and cured him • of ah' Inferiority complex s which •- would have no pluce -hi'. Augusta; 'where the, elite of golfing would-tend'to fluster a. youngster with backward wass.' f • l; . Henry*-p|ays a'sound' all-'aVorimt game, combining n husky drive with a good approach and putting game, and has more than his share of luck-. While Jones has been rated an 8 lo I favorite by members of the Augusta National Club, Picard Is a long shot, his past performance being disregarded in view 'of such talent as Sarazen, Runyan, Hagen, Dutra, Little, Laffoon; Armour, Wood, and others" taking'part. Over 72; holes of ' medal' play, however, the kid will be right at home. He expressed confidence to me in a little talk at Miami when he declared, "This Is my year." Keep your eye on Jones at Augusta, April 4-7, but watch for a dark horse named Henry Picard flogging up from the rear of the pack, too. (ARK.)
