Golf Gifts: Harry Vardon Postcard


Describing in the club, at lunch-time, with great accuracy of detail, how, after a terrifically long but slightly erratic tee shot, you had the misfortune to lose your ball in the whins, and immediately having the same ball, with your initials stamped on it, returned to you by one of your audience, who had found it exactly in the line you indicated with such precision- but some fifty or sixty yards nearer the tee.

– Horace G. Hutchinson
