Johnny Fischer's Pitch Shots
Alumni Trophy Again Bobs Up
* * *
OHNNY FISCHER, Intercollegiate golf champion, was in
the clubhouse the other day talking to other members of
the golf team. The question came up as to the left wrist at
the point of contact with the ball on the down swing.
The traditional feeling is that about a foot or so away
from the contact of clubhead and ball, the right wrist
takes over the shot, snapping back into position and add-
ing a large amount of strength to the shot.
However there is a newer school of golf, principally
among younger players, that the development of the left
wrist for a larger part of this movement is desirable and
will bring better results. Meve slamming the ball is not always to a player's
advantage. Control of all shots is now deemed to be more important than
actual superior distance.
A strong left wrist, working at this juncture, will increase control, while
ut the same time not cut down very much on distance. Of course the left
hand is all-important in the whole shot, and always has been, but the
importance of the left wrists at the moment of contact is a fairly new mode.
Fischer himself has extremely well-developed wrists. They are respon-
sible for his long woods but even more important for his successful short'
game. He has five pitch irons, ranging from his xnashie to niblic, and it is on
this particular division of his game i

that he rests most of his hopes.
He has one advantage over most
golfers and that is the accuracy of
his pitches. His total putts for a
round often hovers around 25. This
is due to seven or eight one-putt
greens which in turn are due to fine
We played a round with Johnny
last spring when he was off direc-
tion on his woods but he still turned
in a 74. His long drives off the tee
found the rough more often than the
fairway, his long irons were just so-
so, but his approaches were perfect.
He had four one-putters on the out
nine, three of which were conceded
by us who think that all putts should
be downed everytime. The four ap-
proaches varied in distance from a
bunker off the green to 125 yards.
Yet everyone of them were inside a
two-foot radius from the cup.

THE CHICAGO Alumni Trophy

football practice and is voted to the
freshman who had the best record
during the practice sessions. Attend-
ance, ability, attitude, and the pos-
sibility of a Varsity post in the next
season are the factors considered by
the coaches in voting it.
Four backfield men, two ends and
a guard are given a good chance ofi
winning it. Bolas, Dauksza, Remias,
and Triplehorn are the backs with
Remias outstanding. Wells is the
guard. Johnson and Malashevich
are the two ends under consideration.
Although the vote has not been an-
nounced, the last named is rated as
the best guess. Malashevich is ex-
pected to give Ward a real run for
the right end position next fall. Both
can catch passes like Oosterbaan,
both are fast, and both are clever
defensive performers. It looks like a
Dauksza and Remias stood out in
the last Saturday's game but above
them stood Malashevich. He dem-

after he caught them.

I Annual Meet
The University of Michigan Varsity!
golf team handed the freshman
squad its annual beating yesterday
to the tune of 181/ to 151. The
frosh, however put up some good
playing but the experienced upper-
classmen were just too good for them.
Of the eight matches played, the
Varsity took all but two. Woody Mal-
loy, of the freshman team, shooting
a 78 over his opponent's 79, won
over George David, 2% to %. The
other yearling victory came with
Schaberg's win over Keith Crossman,
2 to 1.
Jolly Doesn't Play
Markham, Muzzey, Sweet, and See-
ley, of the Varsity squad took deci-
sive matches from Williams, Van
Zile, Smith, and Heusel, each of the
victors winning by a score of 3 to 0.
The match scheduled between Cap-
tain Jolly of the Varsity and Wen-
ham did not take place because of
classes in the afternoon. This match
will come off today but will not have
much effect upon the present score.
These matches have had a good
effect in getting the Varsity in con-
dition for the meet here, Saturday'
between Michigan and Ohio State.

With Buck Waterbor back in shape

be ready to face Ohio State at Ferry
Field at 4 p. m. today, in what will
mark the Wolverines' third Confer-
Art Patchin is slated to do the
pitching for the Maize-and-Blue
nine, seeking their second consecu-
tive victory over a Big Ten ball
team. The sophomore right-hander
has showed his mettle against M. S.
N. C. and Hillsdale in practice games,
but has yet to win his spurs against
a Conference nine.
Ohio State, providing the opposi-
tion in the first of a two-game series
this afternoon, had a poor season to
date. With only two veterans avail-
able and a new coach, the Scarlet-
and-Gray diamond team has yet to
score a Conference victory.
The only two experienced men in
the Buckeye lineup are Captain
Roger Sharp, who does the catching,
and Sid Hale. Hale, starting the sea-
son at third base, suffered an attack
of bad fielding, and will probably be
in right field today.
Three new men have been sharing
the pitching for Ohio State this
season, Marvin Ulrich, Ansell Estell,
and Ken Williams, with Ulrich a
right-hander, the logical choice to
draw today's pitching assignment
against Patchin. Estell, a southpaw,
is due to get the call for tomorrow's
game. His appearance will mark the
first time Wolverines have faced
left-handed twirling this season.
The Ohio State infield will have

If Hale is still off form he will be
in right field for the Buckeyes, with
Bobby Colburn, basketball star, in
center, and Bob Blue in left. With
Hale at the hot corner, Prosenjak
will be out in right field.
The Michigan lineup will be the
same as that which faced Chicago
and batted out a 12-to-2 victory over
the Maroons last Saturday, barring
a change of pitchers.
Ken Manuel, Buck Waterbor, Jack
Teitelbaum, and Russ Oliver, will be
the starting infield for the Wolver-
ines, the oufield comprising Ted
Petoskey, Gene Braendle, and Avon
Artz. Artz and Petoskey will resume
their fighting for the batting cham-
pionship of the team in this game.

The pitching assignment for Sat-
urday's game will go to Whitey Wis-
tert, who pitched a masterful game
against Chicago as well as securing
four hits. Should today's game be
rained out a double-header will be
played on Saturday.
