GOLF NOTES RE HANDICAPPING: GOLFERS WHO ARE CRICKETERS [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 29 July 1916

GOLF NOTES RE HANDICAPPING: GOLFERS WHO ARE CRICKETERS By TEE TEE. Some time ago the handicapping committee reduced the handicap of Fcstus Lees to 5 medal and 3 bogey, much to '.lis dici.ust. His com plaint was that a return of 80 r.ct did not merit a reduction. Players have an idea that the committee ought to base their handicapping only on cards which nrc returned in competi tions, and not on form they may display at orlicr times. I have always held the view that all authen tic scores should be taken into consideration. Suppose a man is on the limit, and has tuition and practice say for a year, during which time he never enters for a competition, it would not be claimed, surely, that the player ought to remain on his original handicap. I have taken the opportunity to carefully watch the play of Lees, and think his handicap still far too high in relation to the other mem bers of the club. During last week he put up a 77 and 79, and on Saturday did a 79 in com petition, with represe...

CUMBERLAMDERS GOING STRONG. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 29 July 1916

CUMBERLAHDERS GOING STRONG. The Cumberland Club, with headquarters at Parramatta, has been the most active motor cycling organisation in the State for the last two years. It has contributed its quota of Anzacs — 10 per cent, of its members — and also kept the sport going for those who were for various reasons compelled to remain behind. The officials — the energetic honorary secre tary, W. B. Pynor, in particular— deserve prcat praise for the manner in which- they have kept going in such strenuous times. The club has been having a short spell, but early in August there is to be a general meet ing of members, at which the programme for the ensuing year will be arranged. Here 13 an example for other clubs to follow, and, what is more, the Parramatta men can be depended upon to adhere to any programme it outlines.

MOTOR CYCLING BOOTH AVERAGES 95 3-4 MILES AN HOUR IN NEW RECORD [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 29 July 1916

MOTOR CYCLING BOOTH AVERAGES 95 3-4 MILES AN HOUR IN NEW RECORD By BEDE CARROLL. Though the previous holder of the mile world's record at 43 2-5sec, Jack Booth, was not satisfied with it, on Tuesday, in Melbourne, he astounded the motor-cycling world by co- vering the distance in the phenomenal time of 3- 3-5sec— an improvement of 5 4-5scc upon his previous best. The performance is remarkable, and likely to stand for many a long day. He averaged 95 miles 1310 yards per hour. The Australian champion has certainly given the other record-chasers something to do to beat his mile figurcs. He was electrically timed. The record is rapidly approaching the two- miles-a-minute mark. Booth's mount was a 7 h.p. Indian. Bob Finlay is to be the next aspirant for record-breaking honors on a 7 Excelsior. It is many a long day since the Motor-cycle Club of N.S.W. promoted anything in the com- petition line. The old club has at last got a move on, however. At this week's committee meeting it was deci...

VERA PEARCE'S PALS LETTERS FROM SOLDIER ADMIRERS. Miss Vcra P.-nrce is very popular with the boys at the front. Every mail brings a budget of letters to her.

AUSTRALIAN HURDLES THIS AFTERNOON WISCONSIN IN DEMAND. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 5 August 1916

AUSTRALIAN HURDLES THIS AFTERNOON WISCONSIN IN DEMAND. Wisconsin it best favorite for the Australian Hurdles, and it seems fairly safe to say he will start at rather a short price. He ran at Moonee Valley on Saturday in the Jumpers' Flat Race, and from all accounts shaped fairly wen. He is, nowever, ratner an in-ana-out | customer, and has failed so often that it is , difficult to stand him, notwithstanding his win - at Caulfield. It was rumored here early in the week that ' all was not well with Van Homrcigh, but as ! he has retained his place in the betting market, I everything must be O.K., as the bookmakers are not the worst in finding out things. Lord Grey must have s great chance, as he is a splendid stayer, and the Held not being very big will be in his favor.

ANCIENT BUT USEFUL SUNLIKE'S WIN. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 5 August 1916

ANCIENT BUT USEFUL SUNLIKE'S WINL It was about up to old Sunliie to have a win, as his last was at Rosehill in March, 19M, but he clearly demonstrated on Thursday that he carried his age (11 years) lightly, by the way he accounted for the Flying Handicap. The field was certainly not high-class, but he won rather well, and his retirement seems a long way off, especially now that his leg, which troubled him when he was racing before, appears to be as sound as a bell. Writing of Barden's string brings to mind that Wallace Isinglass is engaged at Wcrwick Farm on Monday, and will probably be given a run. Although not at his best, hisform will be interesting in view of his Spring engage ments. He looks nice and has been doing strid ing work for some time pest.

TO-DAY'S MOOREFIELD PROSPECTS FIELDS NOT AS BIG AS USUAL. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 5 August 1916

TO-DAY'S MOOREFIELD PROSPECTS FIELDS NOT AS BIG AS US0AL. The fields at Moorefield this afternoon will not be quite up to the average for that track, but are quite big enough to ensure good racing, and although Moorefield is very much a backer's course, it would not be surpris ing if it were the opposite this afternoon, al though after Thursday's Canterbury Park form backers should be able to sum up rather ac curately. It is not the least surprising that the field.-! are smaller, for considering the amount of racing we have had during the past few weeks, something must give way, and if not backers it will probably be the horses. As Bee's connection had the fweep in the Canterbury Park Cup and did not run, then it seems peifcctly cafe to assume that that mare will be an absentee this afternoon in the Moorefield Handicap. There is nothing the matter with her, however, Dut 1 heard tnat she is not fond of the heavy going. Charle villc was another malcontent in the Cup, but he may run to...
