U. S. Open to commence
action today in New York

By KEVIN KERBER
The U. S. Open, the most
prestigious golf tournament in
the world, begins today at the
Winged Foot Golf Club in Ma-
maroneck, New York.
The course promises to be
one of the most difficult ever
prepared for the Open. The
United States Golf Association
has ordered the fairways nar-
rowed to thirtyyards so that
any off line drive will land in
rough several inches tall.
In addition, the course is al-
most 7,000 yards in length -
very long for a par 70. The five
finishing holes - which aver-
age 439 yards-will prove espe-
cially difficult for the pros.
Attention, natives of Seattle
and Dgnverl To find out what
the NHL just did to your home
towns, turn to page 11. And if
you're from Kansas City or
Washington, prepare to weep.
The greens are relatively
small and over three acres of
sand traps are scattered around
the course.
ALL OF THESE factors fav-
or players like Jack Nicklaus
and Tom Weiskopf, who are
particularly adept at hitting
high long iron shots to tight
pin placements. The course
places its greatest emphasis on
accurate approach shots to the
greens.

Open, and Gary Player. Play- history to win each of the four

"Cool Wayman" fires
WAYMAN BRITI, seen here shooting against Ohio State, has
not been idle this summer. Cool Wayman has been working
hard on perfecting his twenty foot jump shot, which could
make him a dangerous scoring threat for next season. And
he has not been playing tennis, either.
