George Von Elm
Jones was not to make it three in a row. George Von Elm of the Rancho
Golf Club, Los Angeles, Calif., was in good form, improving each day until
he reached the final and upset Jones, the medalist (143).
Entries numbered 157, and another change was tried in the form of play,
reversion to the old method of 36-hole qualifying for 32 places, but the
draw was seeded for eight players. There were 36-hole matches Thursday,
Friday and Saturday.
The Championship was played at the Baltusrol Golf Club in Springfield,
