Golf stars Mildred "Babe" Didrikson Zaharias and Patty Berg whipped duffers Bob Hope and Bing Crosby in a scratch game in the Frank Condon Tournament at the San Gabriel Country Club. At the sixth tee, Zaharias hit a ball that whacked a diamond ring worn by a female spectator. The stone tumbled out of the ring, the ball rolled onto the green, and Zaharias sank an 8-foot putt. The diamond was found afterward. The Times called the shot a "birdie diamond."
