with a 7-6, 6-1 victory over Kalamazoo's

about his ace's close match, however.
"His performance was a little bit sub-

"Because of making the transition out-

the match, he did win the match."

Neinken recovered from a slow start to

It's springtime in Augusta, and for the world of
golf, that's the equivalent of telling a priest that
Judgment Day has come.
You see, there's this little '01 golf tournament down
in Georgia that Bobby Jones and Clifford Roberts
started in 1934 for some of the world's best
professional and amateur players, and this week it
goes again for the 42nd time.
At first they called it the Augusta National In-
vitational Tournament, and while it did attract many
of the game's greats, it was assumed they came out
of respect for the immortal Jones. All Jones did was
win the Grand Slam, not to mention a fairway full of
other major championships, and then retire at the
appalling age of 28.
Some friends of Jones and various other be-seen-
around-the-clubhouse-in-ice cream-colored suits
types thought the tournament should be called the
Masters, since it did bring together all the "masters"
of golf. But Jones, a remarkably charming and in-
telligent athlete, thought the name to be too pompous,
too contrived.
Then ,in the second year of the tournament
something happened that would change the image of

the event forever, helping to publicize Augusta more
than all the flowering azeleas and pruning of junipers
have since.
Gene Sarazen, all clad in puffy knickers and a
wool cap, holed out a 220-yard four wood shot for a
double eagle on the par-five 15th. At the time,
Sarazen was three shots down to Craig Wood, who
was the leader in the clubhouse with a 282 total.
Sarazen was the only person with a mathematical
chance of beating Wood, but they were all set to give
the trophy to Wood before Sarazen pulled off his "shot
heard around the golfing world."
Sarazen managed to par the last three holes, for-
cing a 36-hole playoff match which he won by five
strokes. Since then, the Masters (Jones reluctantly
allowed the name change years later) has grown in
prestige and popularity to the point where it is now
the most sought after and illusive prize in all of golf.
Jones, and Roberts built the Augusta National Golf
Club with the aid of British golf architect Allister
MacKenzie on an old fruit farm along the banks of the
Savannah River which separated Georgia and South
Carolina. For Jones, it was a dream come true. He had
wanted to build the perfect course for a long time,
and this piece of real estate was ideal.

rs tradition
The old fruit farm was resting on a soft rolling
terrain. It had just the right amount of spicy
evergreens,, an assortment of flowers that bloom
spectaculary every spring and soil just right for
producing velvet-like fairways.
To play in the Masters, one has to be invited under
one of 13 qualifications. It is an elite invitation list,
and often many fine golfers are absent from it
because they don't meet the qualifications.
Since Jones was a an amateur, the Masters still
honors those play-the-game-for-fun players. Each
year from five to ten amateurs are invited, again
depending on certain qualifications. No amateur has
even won the Masters, though several have finished

pared to other years. 72 players will tee off tomorrow

nament is played amidst the memories and
gratitudes of that great athlete who played in the
Golden Era of sport. And for sure, this dream tour-
nament played on a dream course, is his everlasting
legacy to the game of golf-both for the amateurs, the
professionals and those that just love to play the

Playing their fifth match in 12 days,
Michigan's women's tennis team blew
Central Michigan off the courts yester-
day with a resounding 8-1 dual match
win at the Track and Tennis Building.
The Wolverines (12-2) lost their only
match of the day in singles when top-
seeded Kathy Karzen fell to Central's
Kellie Serges after a tough first set loss,
7-5, 6-1. Michigan tennis Coach Theo
Shepherd admitted, "After all the ten-
nis we've played, Kathy's loss was
probably a little of a letdown."
KARZEN'S LOSS had little effect on
the rest of the team, however, as the
Wolverines proceeded todestroy any
Chippewa hopes after their opening
win. Sophomore Sue Weber, playing
second singles, defeated Toni Serges 6-
0, 6-4. At third singles, Whit Stodghill
overwhelmed Sue Mather, 6-1, 6-0.
Senior Barb Fischley and junior Ann
Kercher both defeated their opponents
by identical margins, 6-2, 6-1. Lisa
