Kelland and Golf

Email from a CBK Affecianado: 

Many years ago my father J. Raymond Lenahan passed away and while going threw his belongings I found a golf scorecard from a round that was played at Pepper Pike G.C. in Ohio. It is dated Sept. 10, 1935. The foursome contained the following players; Ray Lenahan, Bud Kelland, Francis Ouimet, and Bob Jones. I beleive they played prior to the US Open which was being held in the area. My dad and Ouimet were long time friends from New England golf. It made for one fantastic afternoon I'm sure. Your's truly John Lenahan  

Kelland Quotes

 My father didn't tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it.

I believe I have discovered the one great, moving, compelling force which makes every man what he becomes in the end. This, I believe, is the greatest force in the universe. I believe all other causes are secondary to it. It is so powerful that the slightest human effort cannot be put forth until it has done its work; and if it should suddenly be annihilated from the world, all activity would come to a standstill, and humanity would become a mass of automatons moving about in meaningless circles. This force is not love; it is not religion; it is not virtue; it is not ambition -- for none of these could exist an hour without it...it is imagination. (Quoted in Imagination: Mind's Dominant Power, GD Leeming, 1926)
