The attached golf article first appeared in a 1922 Vanity Fair titled "The Royal and Ancient Game". Penned by golf legend Charles "Chick" Evans, Jr. (1890 - 1979) it traces the birth of the game and its migration across the sea where the game was heartily welcomed:

"Golf seemed a gift from an high. Across the water it came and our best people took it up. They had discovered it in their travels abroad. It is true that poor people played it in Britain, but it seemed very sure that they would not do so in America..."

Much to his credit, in 1930 Evans had successfully launched a college scholarship program for eligible golf caddies. The Evans Scholarship fund continues to this day and has, up to this writing, sent over 8,000 golf caddies to college.
