When they arrived in Darien four days before the Amateur, they decided to spend a day sightseeing in New York, doing the tourist bit on their first trip to the Big City. "We took a sightseeing bus around Manhattan, but the bus broke down and we had to push it to get it started."
Jane drove Martha and Cindy to the course for their 36-hole championship match, and then the girls had breakfast together. Cindy—wearing her Budweiser flip-it hat, smoking cigarettes, chewing gum—birdied the 17th and 18th holes of the morning round to take a 1-up lead to lunch. But after an hour-and-a-half recess Martha surged back and won the first three holes to take a 2-up lead as Cindy experienced some trouble with her driver—hitting into a trap on No. 1, pulling too far left on No. 2 and hooking out-of-bounds on No. 3. Cindy won the fourth with a birdie two, however, and she seemed ready to even the match at the fifth.
Instead she made a poor approach, and Martha dropped a tricky putt for her par. That turned the match, as Martha then won the 7th hole to go 3 up and later birdied the 10th to take a 4-up lead. Martha closed out the championship at the 16th when Cindy, whose nickname is Ducky, hit an approach shot into the water. "Any time I'm near the water," Cindy said, "I hit the ball into it. That's what a duck is supposed to do, isn't it?"
Right. And a President is supposed to call a champion.
