Carries Several Clubs. , To help him solve this problem he carries three lofts of mashie nib- lies in his hag. These clubs may all be swung with the same firmness, but their results differ. One club may pitch and run while the other may spin and stick. The roil of the green and tho. condition of the turf are also big factors when Hagen needs one dead to the cup. Hagen's stance fop this shot Is very solid, there are times when he looks absolutely stiff/This is necessary when he realizes that to properly execute the shot he must get the club away ahead of the hands and the left wrist must do the greater portion of tho work.

To loosen up would mean^ie would lose control of the ball. The new ball should help Hag-en to score well this year. The fact that the new pill sits up. better than the old one for these shots and als.o that Hagen is a fine putter, under all conditions, helps him to score and make up for the few bad breaks he haa been getting the past two years.
