“FIT FELLA WINS THE 1909 BALFOUR CUP”

On June 24th 1909 the Manchester Evening News ran the following article relating to the Balfour Cup which had been played at Timperley Golf Club that year:

Mr. Frank Whitworth, Hon Secretary of the Competitions Committee for the Balfour and Houldsworth Cup, has received the following letter from Sir W. H. Houldsworth:

" Let me congratulate you upon the great success of the Balfour Cup tournament this year. It seems to have been a most interesting contest, and the winner to win under the special circumstances in which he was placed deserves great praise.

I should imagine that it is a new and unique instance in the history of golf for a man to play a good round in the forenoon (top score), then go off and bowl for some hours in a cricket match, and then return to play a second round at golf, and beat his man on the post. If I knew his address, I would write to congratulate him. The second man must have been a good one too."

The winner after the 18-hole play-off was V Hope of Macclesfield Golf Club.

Must have been a fit fella!
