Spectators Engulfed Golfers to Prevent Their Arrest
Spectators foiled law enforcement’s attempt to arrest three golfers in South Carolina.
On a sunny Sunday afternoon in Camden, South Carolina, in 1927, a crowd of spectators engulfed three golfers on a local course to prevent them from being taken into custody for the crime of playing golf on Sunday.
Almost since golf began in Scotland in the 1400s, its play on Sunday has often been a source of contention. In 1618, King James VI of England felt it necessary to confirm by decree the right of the populace to play golf on the Sabbath.
Over three hundred years later in the mid-1920s, playing golf on Sunday in Great Britain was still a touchy issue. So much so, that the Prince of Wales, a future King of England and later the Duke of Windsor, would make the short hop across the English Channel to France on Sunday at the controls of his small plane to get in a round.
Restrictions that regulated commerce and a number of other activities on Sunday in the United States were first enacted in New Haven, Connecticut in the late 17th century and eventually were on the books in all the colonies.
These statutes were called "blue laws." The origin of this term is subject to debate. One explanation for the term is that it comes from the expression "true blue" referring to people who don't change their convictions or policies. Others argue that the term was coined by critics to ridicule the effort to prevent "blue" or indecent behavior, such as drinking and gambling.
In this country, as the game of golf took hold in the Northeastern United States in the late 1880s, the enforcement of blue laws led to the arrest of golfers at the Harvard Yard in Cambridge, Massachusetts; in Connecticut ; and in and around New York City.
A jury ruling in favor of golfers in 1901 in Yonkers, New York was the apparent tipping point for the matter in the Northeast. That wasn't the case in other parts of the country, especially in the South, where it remained a hot button issue.
This was particularly the case in South Carolina in 1927. The newly elected Governor of the state, John Gardiner Richards, was making good on a campaign promise to rigorously enforce the state's blue laws.
In the Camden incident, one golfer was arrested before the crowd of spectators, estimated to be 75 in number, swooped around the other three players and blended them into their midst.
On the same afternoon thirty miles to the east, eight golfers in the town of Sumter were taken into custody. The week before golfers had been arrested in the cities of Aiken and Greenville.
But Governor's Richards's crusade against Sunday golf soon fizzled out, because juries, even in his own home county, refused to return guilty verdicts.
