RING ECHOES (Associated Press Leased Wire) NEW YORK.—Bep' Van Klaveren, Holland, outpointed Phil Rafforty, New York, (10); Eddie Holmes, Connecticut, outpointed Cordon Donahue, New York, (8). The home-made "33" golf club can serve you with astonishing effect, and as I think no one of your regular clubs could, by enabling you to discern Just how tho six basic co-ordinates in tho golf swing flow together when there Is resiliency In tho action. With the "33" club this re- slllenoy Is • In tho shaft, which may be anything of a resilient nature from a heavy wire to a limb off a tree. This resiliency Is essential and that's why I suggest this home-made club since you coult hadly buy any sort of club with a shaft soft enough for this purpose. Standing is, of course a matter of ordinary address, there being no difference when your "33" is to bo used. The club, as waggled should, however, exert a loosonlng-up effect throughout your body. As tho clubhead swings back and forth at the end of the rubber-like shaft, the non- resisting muscle now In your hands and wrists will be exactly the feel you should have when you have a"regular club in your hands, a feel which nevertheless, probably will be a new one of comfort and relation. Waggle the "33" and note the ease and comfort of your address. This is the beginning of a good swing. NOTE—Mr. Horton -now has perfected a complete service for readers of this newspaper. He has free instruction material to meet any golf ing difficulty. Write Mr. Horton, care National Newspaper Service, 326 Wes Madison, Chicago, simply stating what golfing trouble you seek to cor rect, and his Instructions will be sent free.
