Laker Pair

Continued from preceding page

long, long way," says Link.
"Probably over 275 (yards).
His irons are extremely long
as well. He can hit a four-iron
about 200. But that's also his
weakness because he can't
keep it straight. His distance
and power are phenomenal;
it's his control that he's hav-
ing a little trouble with.
That's just a young player.
What I've learned in the past
is that you don't want to in-
hibit the distance, but we
want to encourage the control
so that he might lose 10 yards
on some of his irons, but he'd
increase his accuracy and
make his scores come down a
lot easier . . . He's got a great
future, no question about it,
because he's got the physical
attributes to be a fine golfer.
He's just got to refine 'ern."

Modell Scores
Links Success

Cranbrook High junior J.J.
Modell, a second-year varsity
golfer, is having a good year
for a strong Cranes' squad.
He shoots about 40-41 for a
nine-hole round, with a low
score of 39. He shot an 80 in
the 18-hole Oakland County
tournament, in which Cran-
brook took fifth.
"He's a very good player,"
says Cranbrook coach Delvin
Walden. "He is our third
man."
Modell's strength, says
Walden, is not - his technical
skill, but his attitude. "He's
just very dedicated to the
• game. He works at it very
hard. When he knows that
things are going wrong, he
wants to correct it. He's not
the kind of player who says,
`Well, that's the way it is.' He
will try to identify the pro-
blem and do something about
it. Either asking us as
coaches to help him or going
to . . . a professional who
might be able to help him:'
Link adds that Modell is "a
good putter."

Gilbert Wins
Bronze Medal

Professional tennis star
Brad Gilbert was a co-winner
of a bronze medal in the
recently-completed Olympic
Games in Seoul, South Korea,
last week. Gilbert shared
third place with Sweden's
Stefan Edberg. Miroslav
Mecir of Czechoslovakia beat
American Tim Mayotte to
win the gold.
Gilbert was one of two
Jewish American athletes to
win an Olympic medal.
Swimmer Dara Thrres also
won a bronze in the
400-meter freestyle relay.
Gilbert was selected for the
team early in the year, based
on his top-10 world ranking.
Injuries hampered Gilbert
this summer. Many question-
ed the early selection process
which tabbed Gilbert, noting
the recent rise of teenage
phenom Andre Agassi to
number four in the world
rankings. But Gilbert's suc-
cess in Seoul showed that the
1981 Maccabiah Games silver
medalist is back on track.
These were the first Olym-
pics in which tennis was a
medal sport. All of the world's
top professionals were eligible
to compete, although, as with
all Olympic events, no prize
money was awarded.

Weisenthal
Center Will
Honor Reagan

Los Angeles — President
and Mrs. Reagan will be in
Los Angeles on Oct. 30 to ac-
cept the 1988 Humanitarian
Award of the Simon Wiesen-
thal Center.
At the same dinner, Nazi-
hunter Wiesenthal will be
honored on his 80th birthday,
with British actor Ben Kings-
ley serving as the evening's
master of ceremonies. Among
the dinner chairmen are actor
Arnold Schwarzenegger and
TV personality Barbara
Walters.
The award to the president
will recognize his staunch
support of Israel, his personal
commitment to the cause of
Soviet Jewry and his efforts to
prevent nuclear war, said
Rabbi Marvin Hier.
Reagan, speaking just one
week before the national elec-
tion, is expected to talk for 15
minutes on a topic relevant to
the concerns of the Jewish
community.
The First Lady will receive
the Center's first Beit Hash-
° ah/Museum of Tolerance
award.
