This due, probably, tri Its close proxlm Ity to St. Andrews, bordering (h S3mc bav but south of the Ta, where the Open was played : early as 18C5. Still, on? can't-say that Cfirnou stle has been lax in producing he quota of Ihe famous. Old Bo Simpson started It fill bade In 186 Since then a steady procession of renowned professionals has branched out from this spot north of the Tay. Brother Jack Simpson, British Open champion in 188-1. was next after Bob, followed shortly by brother Archie, famed as the most fcraccful stylist of his day. Then came the Smiths—George. Alex. Willie and Mac—the Maidens, Jim and Stewart; Dave Bell and n host of others, And what would the game of golf be.todav had there been no Stewart Maiden? The correct answer to that one is that Iherc • probably never would have been a Bobby Jones. It was Maiden's sound teachings .as nrofessor of golf at East Lake Countrv Club.
