Back from Last Year
Playing the opening match of the
1945 golf schedule, the Michigan
linksmen will encounter the Univer-
sity of Detroit today in Detroit.
With practically the identical team
that won the Big Ten title in 1944,
the Wolverine squad will face the
Titans in its initial contest under new
golf Coach, Bill Barclay. Four var-
sity letterwinners, including Capt.
Paul O'Hara, John Jenswold, Phil
Marcellus, John Tews, and one first-
year man, Bob Ernst, have been cho-
sen by Barclay to make the trip.
Barclay Names Doubles Combination
Barclay announced yesterday that
the contest will include matches in
both doubles and singles play. The
IWolverine pairs who will face the
Titan doubles combination will be
Marcellus and Tews, and Jenswold
and O'Hara. Ernst will only parti-
cipate in the singles playoffs.
The Maize and Blue golf mentor
said that the team has good balance
and he hopes the squad will be vic-
torious, since the linksmen are aim-
ing at their fourth straight Confer-
ence championship. The Detroit
matches will give them a fine start,
Weather Detains Practice
Appraising the team; Barclay said
that it is a little early in the season
to make any definite predictions, be-
cause the llayers have not had ample
opportunity to practice, owing toad-
verse weather conditions. Up to date,
Barclay states, the squad shapes up
It is reported that the Detroiters
will be a much improved club over
last year's Titan squad which were
defeated twice by the Wolverines.
Coach William Joyce's team will have
three first-year men in the top berths.
The Titans will tee off under Harold
Cook in the number one position, fol-
