'Golf Team Hits for Winning

Year, but Flops at Big

T

at 308; junior football quarterback
Frosty Evashevski at, 313; and
sophomore Pete Passink in with
320 strokes.
Katzenmeyer displayed disap-
pointment over the second day's
poor performance. The team the
previous year had staged quite a
surprise and had wound up third,
only 14 shots behind winner Indi-
ana. Using hindsight, Katzen-
meyer later remarked that his de-
cision to have the team play con-
servative golf probably cost them
the meet. "After talking with the
team members after their Thurs-

day practive rounds, we decided
to play safe on about eight holes,"
he stated. "To play otherwise
would have enhanced the pros-
pects of going out of bounds. We
got into more trouble with trees
and sand playing that way though,
and it cost us strokes."
Compiling a 3-0 conference dual
meet record and 4-1 over-all this
season, the Wolverines began the
year with their annual spring trip.
This year for the first time they
went to Miami Beach instead of
Pinehurst, North Carolina,
Split in Miami
In two meets with Miami, the
Wolverines dropped the first, 8%-
12%2, but pulled out a squeaker the.
next day with an 11-10 victory.
The real competition got under
way later in the week, though, in
the Miami Invitational Golf Tour-
nament over the par 71 Biltmore
Golf Course in Coral Gables. With
12 teams entered, Michigan fin-
ished fourth with a 1209 aggregate.
Miami won with 1181 shots.
Letterman Cameron headed the
Wolverines with a 300 total which
was good for a sixth-place finish
among the field. Passink and Pen-
dlebury had 302 totals. Junior Tom
Clark, sophomore Mark Yahn,

Newton and Evashevski composed
the remander of the team.
Big Ten competition began the
week after spring vacation as
Michigan traveled to Columbus to
play in the quadrangular meet
against Ohio State, Indiana and
Purdue. With bitter cold winds
ripping the par 72 Scarlet Course,.
the Boilermakers turned in a
medalist total of 788 strokes. Mich-
igan finished second just one
stroke behind, with Ohio State and
Indiana in with 794 and 803 re-
spectively.
Newton Leads
Newton took medalist honors
with 73-80-153 while Pendlebury,
the varsity hockey player, and
Evashevski each fired 156's. Eva-
shevski ,who shot an 83 in the
morning round, caught fire after
lunch and parred the back nine
for his 73.
Katzenmeyer commented, "I was.
pleased with the team's perform-
ance at Ohio State. At the time, I
felt Purdue would be a definite
threat in the upcoming champion-
ship match; also, Indiana was de-
fending conference champion."
In a rain-abbreviated match two
weeks later at East Lansing, the
Wolverines hung on to their 15-9
morning lead and defeated Michi-

gan State, 17%-14%. Evashevski
and Mouw toured the Forest Aker
Course with 3 over par 74's in the
morning, as rain halted the after-
noon matches after nine holes.
Evashevski picked up all four pos-
sible points from his opponent
while Mouw and Mike Goode took.
three.
Neither Goode or Mouw had
made the spring trip and they dis-
played their talents in their first'
competition of the season. Mouw
had earned his letter the previous
year as a sophomore, while Goode.
had been a letterman from two
years previous,
Still Beat OSU
With the Big Ten Meet only one
week away, Michigan hosted the
Buckeyes in a dual meet, minus
the services of Newton and Pass-
ink.
The Wolverines crushed Ohio
State 23%-12%/, as Pendlebury
shot a 76-73-149 over the par 71
University Blue Course. Newton
and Passink were withheld from
competition as Katzenmeyer had
already selected them for the
squad traveling to Madison. The
remainder of the Michigan team
was left to battle it out for the
other four positions on a perform-
ance basis.

Pendlebury picked up 3% i
from opponent Jim Brown
Evashevski took 153 blows
once again shut out his oppc
6-0. Teammate Clark, a letter
ner two years ago, captured
points from his rival.

Michigan crushed the Spa

match in succession, comp

occupied last year back to the
guard spot which he originally.
occupied as a sophomore. In addi-
tion he is expected to play at
around 235 -pounds, nearly 20
pounds heavier than his playing
weight last year.
The Wolverine line will also be
regaining the services of 240 pound
John Houtman. Houtman was
granted an extra year of eligibility
after injuring his knee in the
opener last year..
Realignment
Michigan's coaches have re-
aligned their defensive formation
to take advantage of the particu-
lar physical characteristics of this
year's group of linemen.
The standard defensive lineup
for the Wolverines last year wasi
a six-man line with the center and
the fullback in linebacker's slots
and the quarterback and the two
halfs in the umbrella formation.
This year Elliott's braintrust has
come up with a new wrinkle. They
have dropped the right end off
the line to give Michigan a five-
mlian line. The fullback and center
stay at the linebacker position,

halfs and the stray end now form
a four-man umbrella.
Brand 'X' and Brand 'Y'
The principal reason for this
change is that Michigan's ends
fall in two distinct categories.
Ends like Jim Conley, Ben Fara-
bee and sophomore Steve Smith
fall into the rugged defensive end
category and will stay on the line.
Ends like Bill Laskey, soph Jeff
Hoyne and John Henderson are
more akin to the halfback and so
will play in a defensive halfback
capacity.
This move is made Possible by
the addition of Yearby to the
right side of the line. Yearby will
play what appears to be right end
but will actually be right tackle.
At 6'2" and 220 pounds Yearby
still possesses the speed necessary
to make him a good man in pur-
suit of rival ball carriers.
New Receivers
On offense Hoyne andL Hender-
son are hoped to give a more con-
sistent!target for passes than the
Wolverine quarterbacks enjoyed
last year. Henderson, especially, is
well respected for his pass receiv-
ing ability but will first have to
overcome a scholastic eligibility
problem before he can put his'
talents to use for Michigan.
Other linemen who will be much
in use next fall are tackle Tom
Keating, who Elliott calls his out-
standing lineman next to O'Don-
nell, and guards Dave Kurtz and
John Marcum.
With 24 returning lettermen and
a promising group of sophomores
to work with, Elliott seemingly is
ready once again to start on the
trail back to the top. But if this
is to happen it is necessary that
many untried and unseasoned Big
Ten players take hold.
On the surface many seem to
have the ability but until the

Big Ten football schedule gets un- it adds up to we're not quite sure,
derway no one can tell who will but we would like to think it adds
and who won't make it. up to a sounder team.
Not even Elliott is sure of just "We have better depth than last
what level his team will perform year; it's just a question of what
at. As he himself puts it, "What level it is."
