English Golf Writer Henry Leach's
The American Golfer November 1912
The peregrinations of Mr. Henry Leach, the noted English writer on golfing subjects, who had undertaken to give in this issue an exclusive article on his impressions of golf in this country, have been of a far more extensive nature than originally contemplated. So much so that it has been found impracticable to prepare the paper in time. All the better, for it will be the more comprehensive by reason of a broader view-point. It will appear in the December number.
The American Golfer December 1912
I'm not sure but I think in today's terms, these comments mean "You Suck !"
|For those that think Leach's and Hilton comments should have been taken lightly, it should be noted that when presenting the British Amateur Trophy to United States Golfer Walter Travis in 1904 at Sandwich, Lord Northbourne made a point of saying that he hoped such a disaster would never happen again. The Royal and Ancient then went on to ban the Schenectady putter that Travis used, saying its use amounted to cheating.|
