But it doesn't matter where- he makes his home. Wherever a big time' .golf tournament is t-unmJng—that's wiliere you'll find Nelson. Jiclsoii entered a Red Cross tournament at the Wykagyl Country club.,in New -York last month. He was fresh from a successful season, in the southern- tournaments'. Big Byron was in top shape a-s the large field of sharpshooling pros worked over the course. When the lart round started he held n five-stroke lead over the second man. It looked like another fat purse ..for Nelson. But Nelson wasn't the only man, in peak form. Sergeant Vic GhcK- 7.1 was hot and ready to give Nelson an argument for those •war bonds. Nelson's five-stroke lead d-idn't bother the sergeant. He just put his head down—w.Tlched the Little white ball—and played a terrific -brand of golf. A blazing sun poured down on Ghezxi and Nelson. But through the first nine holes Ghozzi" was hotter than the wea-Uicr. He moved along .like 'a machine—just pour- hi", phots straight down the line—rolling all ihis putts straight into the cup. . Nclaon was 'playing great golf too — hut not tin; 'terrific brand that Ghezni was flashing. When Byron reached the ninth tec he looked Ixick at that !cad of his and fourxl it wasnlt very fat. It had been five strokes when he started—and now had shrunk lo two strokes. That hole .is 4S7 yards from tee to green. Kelson's drive was mediocre. Hi? ball lay a long way from the velvety green. Than Byron, Nelson hauled out his No. 2 iron. The pil! lay on tbo reverse slope of a low hill. Nelson couldn't sec the. green from where the ball lay. The crest of Eastern Malleable Takes B^tol Co.
