September 17, 1913 US Open Wednesday Qualifier

 

Ted Ray was low Wednesday qualifier, and low qualifier for the tournament. In the process he establishes what will be a very short lived Country Club record for a 36-hole single day outing. 

Francis Ouimet meets famous golf writer Bernard Darwin, and asks Mr. Darwin if he has ever played golf. Bernard Darwin was not only one of the top golf writers of all time but in his prime was a very highly ranked British Amateur. Twice making the British Amateur Championship semi-finals.

Wilfred Reid and Robert McDonald both shoot 72's in the morning round but back to back 74's by Edward Ray make him low qualifier for the day.

Late afternoon Francis finds the pairing board and learns he'll be teeing off at 10:30 with Canadian professional Karl Keffer  1909 and 1914 Canadian Open Champion.

Tom Bonnar of Mecklenburg GC finds himself paired with Harry Vardon.

"ENGLISH GOLFERS BEST AT BROOKLINE 
 Great Britain has yet to lose its supremacy in the world of golf"

(Can't you just feel it the competitive juices starting to boil....)
