Golfer On Board

On this day in 1938, Canadian pro golfer, Ross (Shandy) Somerville, arrived in New York aboard the Queen Mary. Somerville had gone to England to participate in the British Amateur Championship, losing to Cecil Ewing.

"Both of us played poor golf and, if Ewing had lost he would have been unlucky," he said as he left the liner.
