'NO PLACE FOR SHOTMAKING
Elder statesman Snead blames problems On
SAN ANTONIO, Tex. (P)-Sam
Snead, shooting for his fourth
PGA title here this week at the
age of 56, says golf is not much
fun; any more-the architects have
made it a drag.
"There no longer is any place
for shotmaking," the hillbilly styl-
ist added Tuesday as he took a
practice swing around the 7,896,-
yard Pecan Valley Country Club
Course with Open Champion Lee
Trevino. "It's all grunt and groan.
"Every course now has to be
more than 1,000 yards. It's not
unusual any more to have 263-
yard par three holes dead into the
wind or 480-yard par fours uphill.
"The fairways are so narrow
you can still have a perfect shot
and not have a chance for the
green, and then you can lose a
ball in the rough a foot off the
Slammin' Samnmy-as he was
affectionately called back in the
1940s and 1950s-is the elder
statesman of the 168 teaching and
tournament pros who tee off
Thursday in the 50th professional
golfers association championship.
He isn't taken lightly by his
rivals, not even those half his age.
His swing is the silkiest in the
game, a model fd rthe youngsters.
His problems, lie ,other of the
aging, is on the greens and Sam
has tried everything from cro-
quet-style now outlawed to side-
saddle and orthodox.
He recaptured some of his old
form last week to get second mo-
ney in the Milwaukee Open, won I
by young Dave Stockton.
"Like all courses, this one is,
built for the hitter," Sam said.
"You just crank up and-wham-
mo. That's the name of the game
" "You have to favor hig hitters
such as Jack Nicklaus, Tom Weis-
kopf and Bobby Nichols, but don't
count out this little guy."
fHe pointed to Trevino, the
Mexican-American from El Paso
and Dallos who won the Open at
Rochester, N.Y. last month.
"He keeps the ball in play. He's
great around the greens." .
Snead had most of his hair and
very little of his present paunch
when he won his first PGA in
1942 when the event was match
play. He. won again in 1949 and
1951. He was xunner-up ,in 1938
Trevino has lost 12
much of it.around his middle, but
none of his brashness since he
played the role of rollicking star
at Oak Hill.
"This is my country," the little
Mexican-American said. "Man,
I'm so keyed .up I want to jump
right out of my skin."
Like Snead, Trevino just toyed
around the course, hitting two
and three balls on some holes.
"The course plays long, and
you've got to be straight," Trevino
said, "but I life it. The tighter
the fairways, the heavier the
rough, the better it is for me. I
think the rough ought to be up
to your knees."
Three former champions-Vic,
Ghezzi, Jack Burke and Chick
Harbert-withdrew, but 17 men
who have won this title were left
in the field.
Trevino is one of seven Open
winners in the field, which in-
cludes Nicklaus, Bill Casper and
Arnold Palmer, just back from the
bone-chilling winds and gorse of A
Old Carnoustie in Scotland.
South Africa's Gary Player, who
won there last week, isn't entered.

Defending champion Don Jan-
uary, a Texan accustomed to the
intense heat anid courses that fa-
vor the pitch-and-run, said he
believed those' players who com-
peted in Britain last week would
be severely handicapped.

five-hour time difference-I just
don't see how they can do it," he A

ued Colavito, who was born and
raised in the Bronx. "I waited !
outside this stadium for auto-

"He made some good pitches,
that son - of - a - gun," Colavito
said. "I had batting practice that

anyone missed me.".
The homer was the 370th of
his career and tied him with Gil
Hodges for 15th place on the, all-

The Yanks signed him after

"No, I wasn't nervous," he said.
"I've been here so many times

the stadium the Yanks were on."
