JUNIOR TOURNEY STAR-Joe Brisson, a Detroit sophomore,
is one of the keys to the balanced varsity golf team that Michigan
Coach Bert Katzenmeyer plans to start against the University of
Detroit tomorrow.

Two Sophs Crack M' Golf Lineup

Can Michigan's golf team be
blessed with the wonderful case
of sophomoritis that the Wol-
verines used to plague the Big
Ten basketball, track, swimming,
wrestling and gymnastics circles
this year?

During Our Annual "Spring Housecleaning"

Coach Bert Katzenmeyer !says
he hopes so, and has turned to
former junior tournament aces,
Joe Brisson and Dick Youngberg.
Katzenmeyer plans to fit this
duo into his balanced six - man
team that will meet the University
of Detroit at Detroit tomorrow.
Brisson lists a Detroit Junior
Championship, the Michigan State
Jaycee Championship and a ninth-
place finish in the. National Junior
Jaycee finals among his honors.
Both Katzenmeyer and Brisson
admit the latter wasn't as low-
scoring as was hoped on the Easter
trip to North Carolina.
Youngberg, of Northbrook, Ill.,
has a background similar rto Bris-
son. He won his state junior Jaycee
meet in 1956 and finished second
the following season. He also
placed 19th and 15th in the Na-
tional Jaycee meets in those years.
Like Brisson, he found spring
trip problems, despite two wins
and a loss.
"I had trouble cutting across
the ball," he said. "But I've been
eliminating the difficulty since

Ntmn Must Adapt Game
To Suit Various. Surf aces

Katzenmeyer says that these'
sophomores must fit in the over-
all balance of the team if Michigan
is to improve last year's ninth
place finish in the Big Ten.

To the novice tennis player, the
court's surface has little meaning.
In contrast is the expert who,
puts a certain value on every type
of court on which he plays.
On each of the five predominant
types of playing surfaces - as-
phalt, clay (dirt), grass, cement
or wood - the ball reacts differ-
ently, and in turn the player must
alter his type of play to corres-
pond with this reaction.

backcourt and take advantage of
my speed."
Frank Fulton, whose court play
a1most duplicates Sassone's,
agreed. Fulton is one who "likes
to- run around."
Rounding out the advocates of
a clay-type court is Larry Zeit-
zeff, a transfer student who has
earned- his niche on the squad.
Referring to the indoor wood-
type courts which provide the
tennis ball with a low, fast bounce
Zeitzeff commented, "Wood courts
are' great for helping one get into
shape, because footing' is better
and it is easier to move up to the
