  • Short Summary

    Golfing technique of famous players is demonstrated.

  • Description

    No title. M/S of Bobby Jones demonstrating his golfing technique - seen in slow motion. "In just the hardest tussles "Bobby" (as he is known to thousands) is a master of power and control. Playing with Jesse Sweetser (who won our Amateur Championship) he leads an attack on Sarazen and Hagen (what a quartette!)" M/S of Bobby seen from behind. Crowds stand by and watch his technique. Jesse Sweetser takes a shot. (The players may be the other way around. Hard to tell). The two players take several more shots. L/S of the spectators moving en masse to watch the next play. "Do golf fans ever get excited? Here's the answer..." The crowd runs along past the camera. There are lots of women amongst the spectators.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 433.

    Note: cataloguing this on machine with a fault - cannot modify the lamp so difficult to see certain shots.
