Hoylake Man's Golf Honour

Cambridge Univ. Captain

by Leslie Edwards

Robin Meyer, 20-years-old elder son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Meyer of Bertram Drive, Meols, has been elected captain of Cambridge University golf club.

It is little more than a fortnight since he became a Blue for the first time. He was successful in both his matches against Oxford in the 74th University match completed over the Royal Birkdale links on Saturday.

Mrs. Meyer said to-day: "This is all a tremendous surprise to us. It never entered our heads that Robin would be made captain."

Robin, who is reading Classics at St. Catherine's, was educated at The Leas School, Hoylake, where his father is a master, and at Marlborough College. He is a member of Cheshire Colts' team.

With other members of the winning Cambridge team, he left yesterday for a tour of Scotland.

In The Family

Tony Meyer, the younger son, is an all-rounder. He represented Marlborough College at golf, rugby and boxing. He will be going to Liverpool University next term.

He is expected to develop into one of the finest golfers the Royal Liverpool club has had for many years.
