LACEY'S GREAT SCORE
A remarkable last round of 67, played with an injured right hand and including only 27 putts, brought victory to Arthur Lacey, of Berkshire, at Wentworth, Surrey, in the Dunlop-Metropolitan £500 tournament, states an English journal.
Although a dry. summer has provided many low-scoring feats, none can compare with the performance of Lacey in the last big professional event of the season in playing 72 holes on a course 6700 yards long for an aggregate of 277.
The West course at Wentworth has four short holes, each a par three, five par four holes, and nine par five. Lac.ey's aggregate was not only 31 better than the total scratch score for 72 holes, but eleven under an average of fours.
