Bunkers that were once quite deep in the old days of the gutty are in too many cases shallow and useless under the new conditions.
They were "gutty" balls, mind, which did not fly away off the irons like the rubber-cores.
With a gutty ball it was really a fine long, slashing carry, and to play short was sometimes the better part of valour.
Certainly the score with which the championship was won was phenomenally low for those days of gutty balls.
This was good work for a lady, especially as I rather fancy she must have been using the gutty ball at that time.
There were more short drivers than there are now, in the days of the solid "gutty" ball.
