Sport: Havers

The British Open Golf Champion, Arthur G. Havers, defeated Gene Sarazen, onetime U. S. Open Champion, 5 up and 4 to play. Such a thing has never been done except by Walter Hagen.

The first 36 holes were played at Cedarbrook, Philadelphia, and there Sarazen acquired a 3-hole lead. But of the next 18 holes (Westchester Biltmore, New York) Sarazen won only 3, whereas Havers took 10, placing himself safely in the lead.
