MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE. FEBRUARY 1 H 1937 NINEr TROJANS, BAKERS PLAY TUESDAY SCRAPS JAYSEE BATTLE OUT of the PRESSBOX By Al Mitchell---JOHN DECIDES NOT TO ENTER TOURNEY J o h n Montague, mysterious "Paul Bunyan" of the fairways, will not play in the national amateur golf tournament this year ... . or any other year . . . which should ease the minds of jittery niblick nickers who thought he would. The authority is the obscure Mr. Montague himself . . . the shadowy Hollywood wizard ol golf who can belt a bird off a telephone wire at 175 paces with a brassie shot , . . and has been known to strike a match, gripped in a caddie's teeth, with a full mashie swing. ;* v t . The word does not come direci, because nothing comes direct from this curious athlete who strides the fairways like a legend, playing with strange comrades at early dawn and in the gathering dusk, and who ... on the word of many experts ... is a greater golfer than Bobby Jones was in his palmiest day. "I don't care for tournament golf and I have no intention of playing in any tournaments," the mystery man told his bosom pals in the seclusion of his club. * s s And it was also his own business, he added for the benefit o[ eaves-dropping reporters, if lie wanted to do "all the crazy tilings they write about me . . . even it they are true." Montague combination of superman and trickster . . . kept to himself until the story of how he licked Bing Crosby in a golf match using R rake, a shovel and a baseball bat . . . crept into the public prints a few months back, si * * CROSBY GIVES UP Ke bet Bing five dollars he could beat him with that equipment. He lined a 300-yard drive into a trap with the fungo b a t . . . shoveled it out to within a couple of yards of the hole with his spade, and canned the putt . . . using the butt end of the rake for a billard cue. Crosby gave up. .11 V :* · Then . . . there is the yarn about Knocking the crow off the telephone wire. He was standing on the tenth tee at Fox Hills, west of Los Angeles, waiting lor a foursome ahead to drive off. a * o . "See. those birds on the lele- J phone wire?" he said. "Watch me pick--Off the- one farthest to the right." He teed up an old ball, snaked out his brassie and whacked a full drive. The ball hit the bird on the right in the neck: . . . snapping off his head. c * 9 Another time, in the drawing room of a home in Heno, he laid a box of matches on the head of a sleeping spaniel pup and knocked it off twice with a driver . . . without waking the dog. Montague's drives are legendary. On the famous pebble beach course near Del Monte, Cal., where Bobby Jones awed his gallery in the national amateur in 1929 by reaching the 550-yard fourteenth green with two shots . . . Montague overdrove the green-with his second by 50 yards. He was asked once it he had ever been on the famous "river hole" at his own lakeside . . . 550 yards with a 100-yard carry over water up to the green . . . in two shots. "No," -Montague replied. "I've never been on that green in two. But I've been 30 yards over it." S *J 3 JOURNAL TIP CLAMPS LID ON BETTING An "authoritative tip" that Jce Louis would win his fight with Bob Pastor in 10 rounds Friday n i g h t put a halt to betting in the Minneapolis loop. "5 =? * Friday afternoon, six hours before the fight, the Minneapolis Journal published this story: "T,'.ie heavyweight fight between Joe Louis and Bob Pastor in Madison Square Garden will result in a decision in favor of Louis after 10 rounds of fighting. There will be no knockout. This is the information carried in an authoritative tip sent into the Minneapolis loop. It put a stop to wagering which had been brisk earlier in the day." * * » The Journal said its informant explained "the new .policy is required because the last trick of ballyhoo has been exhausted in building up opponents for Louis and there would be no basis for a buildup for the next fight if Louis blasted 1 the ballyhoo by winning decisively."
