PAT ON THE BACK

A salute to some who have earned the good opinion of the world of sport, if not yet its tallest headlines
March 28, 1955

MRS. EVELYN PRIMM
Dark-eyed Mrs. Evelyn Primm of Gardena, Calif. may be the most accurate woman trapshooter of all time. This beautiful former model now rates a 26-yard handicap, the highest for any woman in the history of the sport. Only two men, both with 27-yard handicaps, surpass her. Evelyn took up trapshooting three years ago because "it looked like fun." Evelyn is also a licensed pilot and a good water skier.

LADY NANCY ASTOR
Diminutive Lady Nancy Astor, Virginia-born and former member of the British House of Commons, characterizes herself as "just a fair woman golfer," despite a 20 handicap that makes her the envy of most women her age (75). Lady Astor did some golfing at Pinehurst, N.C. recently, got down in sixes and sevens for most holes. Her drives were straight, about 150 yards, but the rolling greens gave her putting troubles. She loves golf, has been playing about 30 years and had a 14 handicap at the height of her prowess. Lady Astor plays most of her golf at the venerable Royal St. George's Course at Sandwich in Kent. Once she reached the finals of the Parliamentary golf tournament. "It's a good healthy game," she enthuses, "and I don't like cocktail parties."
