Nine more golf stories told by the Oldest Member. In two of them, set in
America, we meet a fine couple of fat multi-millionaires who are rivals at
golf (both very bad, and arrant cheats) and rivals as collectors of golf
treasures (such as J. H. Taylor's shirt stud). They play each other for
high stakes. Bradbury Fisher has a baffy Bobby Jones had used in the
Infants All-in Championship of Atlanta, Georgia, and he is prepared to
trade it for Gladstone Bott's English butler, Blizzard, the finest on Long
Island. And then back from England comes Mrs Bott, with Vosper, the butler
supreme lured from the Duke of Bootle's establishment. In two stories we
watch the romance of William Bates and Jane Packard, golfers, result in
marriage and the birth of young Braid Vardon Bates. We meet this lot again
in Nothing Serious.
