The glare cast by a nearby shell explosion lighted up the dugout and, doubling back, Lt. Vardon beat Childs into it.
He would call her "Kid" and say that Vardon had nothing on him.
Vardon says that "except in putting there is no pure wrist shot in golf."
At the short fourteenth Vardon was bunkered, and took an hour.
Even with a round of 73 in the morning Ray fell behind Vardon, who accomplished a remarkable round of 17 to lead the field.
In that year Vardon finished first, Taylor second, and Braid sixth.
There is another matter which Vardon refers to that I should like to notice here.
I shall give here what Braid, Vardon, and Taylor have to say about putting.
Vardon's skill probably never underwent a severer test than in the match yesterday.
Anyhow it was Vardon's own mistake, if it was one, and he is very sorry for it.
