BOW-AND-ARROW GOLF IS LATEST DIVERSION
Playing golf with bows and arrows, instead of the usual clubs and balls, is the latest diversion in the sporting world. Golfers of no mean ability have been defeated by as many as 20 strokes in contests with archers who shoot arrows from the tees to the cups. With the bow and arrow, “drives” of 250 and 300 yards are said to be a common occurrence, while the accuracy of approach to the greens would make any golfer envious. One thing is certain, any archer making the rounds of a course is never troubled by the “ball” overrunning the putting green. Neither do wet greens and fairways, nor the scientifically placed bunkers and traps, prove a hindrance to his game, or to the serenity of his temper.
