Summary Note

Kenneth gives a detailed description of the golf game he arranged for the Prime Minister and the President of the United States. Originally planned as simply a lunch, Kenneth decided that, because they were both interested in golf, he would set up a match between the two. Kenneth tells that the President gave the Prime Minister a set of clubs as a gift which were clearly too big for him, allowing Eisenhower to beat him, quite handily. The Prime Minister thought it was quite a humorous affair. (Length 3:27)
