    Full title reads: "Are you a Golfer? Here are some hints on the ancient but evergreen game by A.J. Lacey, French and Belgian Open Champion 1932."

    C/U of A.J. Lacey standing with a golf club held on his shoulder. He is wearing plus fours. He speaks about how to be as natural as possible when playing golf and to avoid jerkiness. As he speaks about technique people walk into shot to watch his demonstration.

    Slow motion footage of his stroke, several people watch - lots of women.

    "Incidentally, A.J. Lacey, who is the well-known Selsdon Park Professional and has played for England, is reputed to be one of Britain's longest drivers."

    A very serious man asks Lacey how he gets such good length on his drive. Lacey describes his technique and slowly demonstrates. He then takes a proper swing. Various shots including C/U of Lacey's hands on the club. "What is the difference between an iron shot and a drive?" Lacey demonstrates. We then see him taking shots in a bunker. Some shots seen in slow motion.

    We see Lacey approaching the 18th Green at Selsdon Park. He describes his putting technique and we see him put a ball into the hole. A man is tending the flag and lifts it out of the hole as the ball approaches.

    Note: not sure where Selsdon Park golf course is.
