SThe "Golden Bear" birdied five
of six holes starting at the 12th
and Coody began to feel the strain.
The 6-foot-2 Texan, who b le w
a chance to win this tournament
in 1969 when he bogeyed the final
three holes, took a three-putt bog-
ey on the 14th.
He managed to par the 520-yard
15th, then three-putted again on
the 16th, missing a three-footer
on his second.
And on ; the 17th, he was near
a tree trunk with his tee shot,
in a trap with his second and was
on the green, seven feet from the
pin with his third.
He missed it.
"It would be impossible not to
know that a man like Nicklaus is
gaining on you," Coody said.
"I had an impossible shot to get
to the green in two on 17. I made
a good trap shot and had all you
could ask for, a six or seven-footer
for a par.
"I knew it was slow and didn't
quite hit it solidly enough and it
died right at the cup."

FUNLOVING DEAN CHANCE plays baseball because it's fun.
He also plays because he makes a lot of money. But the
most interesting reason he has for playing baseball is to get
"You're going to college to get an education," he said at the
Tiger Press Day early one morning last week, "but you also
get a tremendous education in baseball. There are tremendous
Those who remember Chance as a reported swinging
playboy might snicker at that remark, but Bo Belinsky's
old pal added, "There are occupational opportunities. What
will I do after my career is over? Me, I don't know yet.
Even if I could make twice as much money doing something
out of baseball, I would still play baseball as long as I
Chance, the former boy wonder of the American League, is
now 29, not the age to be washed up, but he has a shoulder
that just doesn't work the way it used to. At the age of 23, he
put together one of the greatest years of any pitcher of the
past decade, with a record of 20-9, an earned run average of
1.65 and 11 shutouts. For those marks, he was given the Cy
Young Award, which in those days was bestowed on the best
pitcher in all of baseball, not just one league.
Chance never had another year quite so great, but even
still, by the time he was 27, he had thrown 32 shutouts. By con-
trast, Hall of Famer Bob Feller, voted the best right hander
ever, only threw 44, and he pitched for 18 years.
Then in1969, while with the divisional pennant-bound
Minnesota Twins, Chance's shoulder kicked the bucket. The
next year he was with the Cleveland Indians, until the last
month of the season when he was sent to the pennant
contending New York Mets. That was last summer, and
this spring he found his way back to Billy Martin on the
pitching-poor Tigers. Today he makes his first start of
the year against Baltimore.
Though he has bounced around a lot :lately, Chance is
philosophical about being traded. There's always a reason for
a trade. "Cleveland needed money," he said, "and I was sold
for $150,000 to the Mets. I went and had a good spring, but
the Mets have a lot of pitching and I guess they felt they could
get more for me than anyone else.
Chance has played for both contending clubs and sorry
also-rans, and, as he yawned and rubbed the sleep, out of
his eyes in the brisk mid-morning air, he recalled what it's
like on a loser. "It's tough. You know you haveto perform
perfectly because you're not going to get much help.
"We lost by one game in '67 (when the Red Sox beat out
the Twins, Tigers and White Sox in a free-for-all) and that
was tough, too. As far as I'm concerned the worst team won.
But I never played on a pennant winner."
He paused then, reflecting, as if trying to concentrate
over the fatigue. "What am I saying?" he said. "In '69 we
won the division with Billy."
Chance, who still looks like the awe-struck Rube he was
when he became famous as the starry-eyed playboy com-
panion of Belinsky on the Los Angeles Angels, claims his
reputation is undeserved. "People forget that that was my
But he doesn't seem to care too much what people think
of him. "It don't matter what you do off the field. What your
future is depends on what you do on the mound."
