Mrs. McClure, defending champion who edged the University of Arizona coed in a play-off for medal honors Wednesday after the :wo had finished the scheduled 18 n °Jf ,S' ith , 84s - had "Me trouble with Mrs. M. L. Wheeler yesterday, defeating her, 7 and 6. Miss Putnam also found the rain-drenched course to her liking- and administered a 6- and-S defeat, to Mrs. Gray Madison. The medalist and runner-up in last year's tourney. Miss Putnam played the day's best golf in taking her match. The defending champion, who is coupled with Miss Putnam as a prohibitive favorite in the fourth annual renewal of the meet, was slightly off her game. Her tee shots wavered just a bit and her approaches, usually the best portion of her links repertoire, didn't lave their usual preciseness. Mrs. McClure will meet Mrs. B J. Russell, who defeated Mrs. F W. Pool, 4 and 2, in today's championship flight 18-hole quarterfinal outing, and Miss Putnam will engage Mrs. Frank Tully, 7-and-6 victor over Mrs. Jerry Packham Although a McClure-Putnam get-together in the 36- hole finals Sunday is considered almost as certain as death and taxes, clubhouse prophets accorded Mrs. Tully an outside chance to upset the pattern and turn up in the climax match. But it's an outside chance of the faintest hue. Other members of the championship flight are Mollie Johnson, another University of Arizona student, who defeated Mrs. L. L. Sams, 4 and 3; Mrs. Charles Voigt of Denver. 4-and-3 victor over Mrs. A. E. Pettit; Mrs. E. R. Foutz, who downed Mrs. M. E. BarnhiU, 5 and 4, and Mrs. W. R.

Lower Scores Are Forecast ByBenHogan T^HOMASVILLE, Ga., Feb. 20— (AP)—Ben Hogan, top money winner of the winter golf circuit and a favorite to win the sixth annual $3,000 Thomasville Open Saturday and Sunday, believes scores are going down. They're going lower every year, he observed in the locker room of the Glen Arven Club, and added that within the next 10 years "it'll take 260 to win." Hogan, who hails from White Plains, N. Y, says he primes hit own came on a pre-tournament estimate of the probable winning: score. And it't paid dividends. He hasn't won a tournament this winter, but he hasn't been out of the money in 39 consecutive start* and leads In cash won with $4,150. "A few years back 280 was good enough to win most tournaments," said Hogan. "Now it's in the 270's, and they're still going down." Johnny Revolta, winner of the San Francisco Open,-chimed in. "It's coming," he said. "In the next two or three years you'll see them breaking 60 for 18 holes. Maybe not in the National Open for a while, but it's coming." Hogan, who shot a sensational 62 in the Oakland Open tournament, says his big worry is putting. "I used to see the ball going in the cup before I putted, but no more," he said. "Now I look at it and see it going like this." and he illustrated a sweeping hook away from the cup. Hogan three-putted twice in New Orleans, but managed to get most of them down In twa to finish with a 277, one stroke behind Henry Plcard of Hershey, Pa., who won top money. A drizzle kept some of the pros indoors today, but a number toured the tree-lined course in practice rounds. Lloyd Mangrum of Chicago, last year's winner with a record 203 for the 54-hoIe test, is tiere to try again. Jimmy Thomson of Chicopee, Mass., shot the first nine today in 33, three under par.
