PROFESSIONAL GOLF TENBY MAN WINS THE WELSH CHAMPIONSHIP. Professional golfers engaged by Welsh clubs had an opportunity of proving their prowess and of improving their status in the world of golf by their performances in a contest for the Welsh championship at Radyr on Friday. With the single exception of Coilins, of Llandudno, all the leading pro- fessionals of the Principality competed, and the representative character of the event, together with the good form shown on the whole, and the admirable manner in which everything connected with the play "passed off," justifies the Radyr Club in feeling proud of having done very substantial good for golf locally. The money prizes were given by the "Western Mail," and Mr. George Riddel1, who is one of the keenest patrons of the game is entitled to the lion's share of the credit as the instigator of the meeting and as one who spared no effort to make it a success. One of the happiest possible results of the Welsh pro- fessionals' meeting is that they formed at the close of play, again at the suggestion of M'r. Riddell, a Welsh branch of the Profes- sional Golfers' Association, with Reuben Wakerley, the new Radyr Club professional, as the secretary. Friday's winner of the Welsh Championship was Day, the Tenby Club professional, who returned the very meritorious card of 161 for the two rounds of the course over 36 holes. His reward for that feat was a sum of ten guineas and the championship gold medal presented by the Radyr Club. The runners-up to Day wero Duncan, of Conway, and W. J. Leaver, of Harlech, who tied with a score of 164. Duncan, who is quite a young man, is a golfer of great promise. His driving in particular was accurate and of great length. He lost a couple of holes at least through sheer bad luck in his morning round, getting into diffi- cultie.s at Xo. 17, a-nd only holing in 7 His partner, Booth, of Jersey Marine, also retired on the second round, after playing much below his normal form. W. J. Leaver made his first round in 81, and his second In 83. Brace, who had the best morning card of 79, broke down completely in the afternoon, taking 92. This made his total 171. which placed him "out of the money." Willie Fernie, of Penarth, was in ill-health, and could only manage 178, which made him 1 down to his son, who finished with 177. Hutcheson. of Porthcawl, who took fourth prize with 167. would have been higher up the list but for his indifferent play through the greens. He Jras al.so pulling his drives. What was certainly the most remarkable achievement of the day was that of Humble, the Llandrindod professional, who holed in 2 with a mashie shot from the far side of the bunker at Xo. 9. Those twho retired were Johns. Arnold, Howe, Booth, Wakerley, and Chitty. The following were the competi- tors:â W. Fernie (Glamorgan) v. W. J. Leaver (Royal St. David's). S. G. Htrtcheson (Porthcawl) v. P. N. Leaver (Aberdovey). W. H. Booth (Swansea Bay) v. George Dun- can (Carnarvonshire). Arthur Day (Tenby) v. R. Wakerley (Radyr). W. Coombes (Aehburnham) v.

The match was played under medal rules, and the prizes were:-First, ten guineas; second, five guineas; third, three guineas; and fourth, one g-ninea. The assistants' prizes were won by C. Morris (first) and W. Brace (second). The results of the sweepstakes were as follow:â1st, J. H. Morgan; 2nd. Dr. Mitchell Stevens and H. Joscelyn (tie). An interesting foursoma was played in the afternoon between Captain Hughes Morgan and Yardon and Mr. Riddell and Braid. The result was a win for the latter couple by 1 up. The prizes were distributed among the suc- cessful professionals by Mr. Riddell. who con- gratulated the winners, and proposed a vote of thanks to the captain, committee, and hon. secretary of the Radyr Club for the excellent arrangements they had made. The success of the meeting, he added, would do a good deal to encourage the game of golf locally. He also remarked that the Profes- sional Golfers' Association were anxious to have a Welsh branch formed, and it was expected that the qualifying round for the "News of the World tournament would be played in Wales by the Welsh professionals, who would thus save travelling expenses. The Rev. W. E. Shaw formally acknowledged the vote of thanks on behalf of the officials of the club, and proposed a vote of thanks to Mr. Riddell and Captain Hughes-Morgan, to whom, he said, they were indebted for the visit of Vardon, Taylor, Braid, and Thomson. They were also indebted to the "Western Mail" for their generosity in providing the presents. The professionals then assembled in front of the pavilion, and Mr. Riddell addressed them on the subject of forming a Welsh branch of the association. Immediately afterwards a meeting of the professionals was held, and the following twelve new members joined the Professional Golfers' Association:âLloyd (Newport). Booth (Swansea). Fernie (Penarth), Hutcheson (Porthcawl), Day (Tenby), W. J. Leaver (Har- lech), Duncan (Conway), and Collins (Llan- dudno). A Welsh branch of the association was formed, with Wakerley as hon. secre- tar v. BRAID DENIES AN ALLEGED INTERVIEW. uraia was nigniy inaignf.ni with a state- ment attributed to him in a Cardiff contem- porary, in which he was stated to have found fault with the course. All I said," remarked Braid to one of onr representa- tivess, was that No. 7 was not quite wide enough, but I knew that it was a new hole and that they are going to widen it. As for saying the ground is too dry and hard. I never said anything of the kind. The fact of the matter is that the four of us who played yesterday were highly pleased with the course, and we expressed our surprise at the splendid con- dition into which it had been worked in so short a time. The only suggestion I made was that No. 7 hole should be widened. ThiR is a first-class course, and one which is bound to improve." Vardon bore out this statement. having heard the conversation between Braid and our contemporary's representative on the previous day. Vardon and Braid will play an exhibition game at Porthcawl this (Saturday) afternoon
