Tiger Horton shelved
DETROIT - Detroit Tiger outfielder Willie Horton will enter
a hospital here today for treatment on a knee injury that has
handicapped him for nearly two months.
Horton, 30, who ruptured cartilage in his knee when he col-
lided with the grandstand wall at Tiger Stadium in May, will be
placed on the disabled list for a minimum of 15 days, team Gen-
eral Manager Jim Campbell said.-
Doctors said Horton's knee -would be placed in a cast
for about a week. Further tests will then be made to deter-
mine whether he will need surgery, they said.
Since May, Horton has been able to start only 10 of 27 Tiger
games. He will be replaced on the Tiger roster by outfielder Jim
Nettles, 26, bought from Evansville of the American Association.
Nettles will join the Tigers in Kansas City for this weekend's
series, Campbell said. The brother of New York Yankee third
baseman Graig Nettles, he bit .285 with 47 runs, 11 homers and
47 RBIs in 75 games with Evansville.

Wilkes a Warrior
OAKLAND - The Golden State Warriors announced yester-
day the signing of All-America UCLA forward Keith Wilkes to a
multi-year contract with the National Basketball Association

tract's financial terms. "It's a good offer, and I am happy
about it," Wilkes said at a news conference.

years with UCLA. He was overshadowed on the Bruins, who won
two NCAA titles, by center Bill Walton, drafted and signed by

as Nicklaus charges
LYTHAM ST. ANNE'S, Eng-
land (') - Gary Player's sear-
ing sub-par pace cooled yester-
day, and the dour little South
African looked over his should-
er to see the advancing shadow
of Jack Nicklaus with one round
to play in the British Open Golf
"Sure, I'm uncomfortable, I'm
very nervous," he said after
seeing his five-stroke lead chop-
ped to three by England's Peter
Olosterhuis and - the awesome
Nicklaus coming from nine back
to within four of the top.
Jack is free-wheeling and
I'm choking. Any man who
says he doesn't choke is a liar.
Saturday will be one hell of a
After brilliant sub-par rounds
of 69 and 68, Player's blades
proved they were subject to hu-
man frailty and he had to be
satisfied with a 75 for a 54-hole
score of 212.
His chagrin at this falldown
was heightened when he left a
bll in a bunker at the 162-vard
ninth hole and wound up with a
doasble bogey five.
"In 10 years of tournament
golf I don't remember blading
the ball as I did then," he said.
"I hit it like a duffer."
Player is rated the finest sand
player in the world.
While the part-time Johannes-
burg rancher was encountering
his problems, the 6-foot4 Oos-
terhuis was shooting a fine 73
to put him in second place at
215 and Nicklaus was charging
out of the pack with a one-under
par 70 for 216.
"I thought I was going to
have my Saturday round on
Friday," the golden-haired
Nicklaus, winner of a record
14 major championships, said.
"I had it made up and then
I gave it back."
Sailing toward a possible 66
or 67, big Jack encountered a
thick growth of willow scrub on
the 15th hole, pitched the ball
in a bunker and failed to get out
on his first try, winding up with
a double bogey six. He lost ano-
ther shot at the 16th, chipping
poorly, but salvaged a birdie
on the 17th to break par for the,
"I am fortunate to be this
close," Nicklaus said. "Certain-
ly, anything is on from here."
Nicklaus is renowned here for
last-day rallies, having shot
rounds of 66 and 6S on the final
days the last two years.
Hubert Green of Birming-
ham, Ala., second leading mon-
ey winner on the U.S. Tour,
shot a 72 for 217 and. moved
into fourth place just behind
Nicklaus and ahead of defend-
ing chomnion Tom Weiskopf
of Columbus, Ohio, and Bobby
Cole of South Africa, tied at
Weiskopf had an erratic put-
ting round with 36 putts and
wvent over par on his jinx bole
-the 445-vard 14th - for the
third straight day in shooting a
74. Young Cole, a copper-hair-
ed copy of Player, caught up
with his more illvstrous coun-
tryman midway of the round but
faded to a 75.
