A. Denham) lOLLOWING faithfully the footsteps of in 17 Donald Parson, who won the seventh annual Carolina Tournament in November, and mindful of the noble precepts enunciated by most of the speakers at the Federated Clubwomen's convention, held at Pinehurst last week, Mrs. Parson saw her husband and went him one better by winning the second annual Carolina Tournament for Women at the 19th hole of a game uphill final battle against Miss Louise Fordyce, Ohio State champion, medalist and favorite. It is no disparagement of Mrs. Parson's golfing ability to say that her victory in the final contest with Miss Fordyce was a good deal of a surprise. Mrs. Parson's 19th hole triumph over a player of Miss Fordyce's calibre and reputation, a player who had led Mrs. Parson by eight strokes in the qualifying round and who had won the medal by a margin of two strokes over the field, was in fact referred to by the press of the country as the first noteworthy upset that had so far occurred during the present winter golf season. Airs. Parson played a steady and consistent game from the start to the finish of the final match and made every stroke count. Miss Fordyce played a sterling game for the first seven holes of the contest and had her opponent 3 down at that stage of the game. And it was due solely to the intervention of a stymie on the sixth green that Miss Fordyce was not 4 .up at the seventh hole. Starting from that point, however, the Ohio title holder began to slip. Time and again she played her irons and brassies into the rough and lost a stroke which cost her the hole or tied her down to a half when a win was in reasonable prospect. She lost both the eighth and ninth in that way, her third shot for the ninth landing up even with the green but in the rough f.

Miss Fordyce got back one of the lost holes in a hurry by winning the tenth with a finely played par 4 but slipped back again to her opponent's winning 3 on the short eleventh. And then Mrs. Parson got on even terms, for the first time in the match, when she laid a perfect brassie third within five feet of the pin, at the twelfth, while Miss Fordyce was playing into a trap and out of it into the rough. Both were on in 2, at the thirteenth, and Miss Fordyce holed a six footer for a win which was negatived immediately thereafter by more rough work on the medalist's part on the way to the fourteenth. That left them all even and it was the last hole won by either contestant during the rest of the round. They halved the fifteenth in 5's. Miss Fordyce missed chances for wins at the 16th and 17th and Mrs. Parson failed to negotiate a five foot putt for the match, on the home green. The gallery, which had dwindled down to relatively small proportions during the earlier stages of the battle, was reinforced by the entire population of Pinehurst when the finalists started for the extra hole. Mrs. Parson's drive was a long one and straight down the middle. Miss Fordyce, plainly nervous, slipped up on her drive altogether, for the first time during the match, and got about 75 yards out of it. Her third shot drifted into a. trap and Mrs. Parson put her third on the green. A great recovery shot by Miss Fordyce left, her ball within five feet of the cup but she missed the putt and Mrs. Parson, taking the two she had to spare, went down in 5 and won the match and the first tournament victory of her career. Incidentally, and dragged in by the heels as a matter of admittedly and relatively little moment, Mrs. Parson's husband also registered his first tournament win this season.
