Nicklaus favored in U.S. Open
but Trevino thinks otherwise

It's about that time again
when all golf pundits proclaim
that this is the year that Jack
Nicklaus finally garners the mod-
ern version of B o b b y Jones'
Grand Slam, the Masters, the
U.S. Open, the PGA, and the
British Open. From all over the
country more ink will be thrown
out in an effort to convince the
reading public that the Golden
Bear has the golden touch.
And who can quarrel with that
fact. The Ohio State grad has
won each of the above titles
twice, though, of course, not in
the same year. He is yearly one
of the top money winners. Nick-

lais has the strokes, the power
and precision. When his game is
right, Nicklaus dominates a
course the way no other golfer
has ever done so.
But today Nicklaus is tense.
He is living with the pressure
and he grimly realizes that he
is the man whom every one else
is looking to knock off.
Lee Trevino, the man who
broke Nicklaus' string last year,
terms him "the greatest player
to ever hold a stick," But Tre-
vino, with that cocky assurance
that is his alone, drawls, "I
can beat him."
Trevino and Nicklaus have
been installed as the pre-rounds

favorites. Both have won this
event twice and Nicklaus has
won the Bing Crosby here at
Pebble Beach in January with
essentially the same layout as
the Open.
Despite some pre tee-off psy-
chology on the part of both
players, as well as verbal drives
from challengers Tony Jacklin
and Gary Player, the Open,
which commences on Thursday
to the heaviest TV coverage in
golfing history, should be one of
the finest played contests of
the year.
Held at Pebble Beach, the
Open could surely be Nicklaus'
this year. The course is made
almost to his specifications. It's
a driving. course with long wind-
ing fairways, which have been
narrowed for this event. New
bunkers have been placed in
the holes which were once con-
sidered giveaways. For water
hazards, the omnipresent Pacific
Ocean on the seventeenth is cer-
tainly threatening.
The course is one of Nicklaus'
favorites. "Pebble Beach is one
of the finest courses in the world
fro ma strategy standpoint. In
many respects. it's a lot like
some of the British seaside
A great deal will depend on
the weather. If the breezes come
in from the ocean, the scores
will go imp at least ten strokes
a round over a round played on
a beautiful California day.
Maybe, most likely, all the ink
will become fact. The Bear has
the best chance to growl at
Pebble Beach of all linksmen.
Nicklaus wants this tourna-
ment very much and has set his
sights on it. And when Jack
plays tough, all predictions must
favor him.
