Wallace Shaw was a member of the Tekoa Country Club in Westfield, Massachusetts, so he had quite a trip to get to St. Louis in 1904. He was in the first group off the tee in qualifying, paired with [Raymond Havemeyer], who opened the tournament. When Shaw’s name was called to tee off, there was a delay, until he came running to the tee with his bag, explaining that his train was delayed and he had only just arrived. Needless to say, he did not play well, shooting 209 in the qualifying. He qualified for the second flight of the consolation tournament where he lost his first round match.
