  • Description

    Amateur golf players from all over the world met at the Merion Golf Club, Ardmore, Pennsylvania, September 28 to start the three-day match for the Eisenhower Trophy.

    Previous game played under the aegis of the World Amateur Golf Council took place at St. Andrews, Scotland, regarded by many enthusiasts as the birthplace of golf.

    Filming rules on the course were so strict that the Visnews cameraman had to steal many of the shots included in this coverage.

    In a letter addressed to the World Amateur Golf Game Championship organization, Mr. Eisenhower said recently, "International competitions of this type, encouraging friendly rivalry among athletes of many countries, not only promote interest in the field of sports but also strengthen the tradition of fair play. This tradition is the only sound basis for building a world of mutual respect and understanding among men and nations."
    Perhaps if this game could be played in the grounds of the United Nations Building in New York, much of the hot wind generated by the 15th General Assembly could be cooled.
