Magic Number: 100
Best wishes Detroit! With the
win against Oakland last night
coupled with Baltimore's de-
feat, the number on the big
board now reads 100. You all
remember the legend that states:
a team that can reduce its magic
. :"; ; t ':r il |.. number to 100 by June 23 is a
sure bet to represent its league

no cracked four straight hits in-

night and regained first place
in' baseball's National League

George Culver, 2-0, the sec-

Houston's r e 1 i e f special-
ist, picked up the save, his
sixth of the season.


Jamieson and veteran R. H. Sik-
es each battled biting cold with
a five-hole hot streak yesterday
and shared the firstround lead in
the $150,000 Western Open Golf
Tournament at 68.
The, slim, Indian-dark Sikes,
slump-ridden all season, birdied
five holes in a row over the wind-
swept 6,716-yard par 71 Sunset
Ridge Country Club course.
Jamieson, a nonwinner w h o
repeatedly has placed high on
the tour this season, also was
five-under-par on one five-hole
stretch and included an eagle
three in his drive.
They shared a one-stroke lead
over Tom Weiskopf, Hale Ir-
win and Steve Oppermann tied
at 69.
Jim Wiechers, Australian Da-
vid Graham, Bob Barbarossa
were at 70 and were the only
other players in the 147-man
field able to break par in the
cold and windy weather.
The blustery winds, which had
gusts up to about 35 miles an
hour and increased the dis-

comfort of the temperatures in
the mid-50s, helped contribute to
some extremely high scores.
Bruce Crampton of Australia,
the defending champion and run-
ner-up to Jack Nicklaus in last
week's U.S. Open Championship,
was two over par at 73.
Billy Casper, a two-time cham-
pion in this old tournament, took
a 75 and England's Tony Jacklin
shivered home with the same,
four-over-par total.
George Archer, winner of two
titles and more than $100,000 this
season, took a 76.
Nicklaus, Lee Trevino, Arnold
Palmer and South African Gary
Player are not competing in this
chase for a $30,000 first prize.
The 31-year-old Sikes, who said
he has won "only a little over
a couple of thousand dollars"
this year, attributed his sudden-
ly improved scoring to the gift
of a driver, a putter and a mys-
terious lesson from old pro Dutch
"I've had a lot of trouble driv-
ing for two years," he said. "A
lot of fellows on the tour have

tried to help me. Maybe 15 of
them. Some of them almost help-
ed me off the tour.
"Last week I went to St. Louis
to see Dutch. He knows me and
my swing. He showed me some-
thing about my swing that I'm
working on. I don't have it yet,
but I may have it by the end
of the week."
"No," he said, in reply to a
question, "I don't want to say
what it is,"
Sikes had a fantastically er-
ratic start and didn't make par
on the first 11 holes, He was
three over par on the first six
holes, with most of his trouble
coming on the 447-yard, par four
fifth where he made double
bogey. He had a poor drive,
was short in two, chipped to
15 feet and three-putted.
But he started a five-hole birdie
string on the seventh, scoring on
putts of 15, 20, 20 and 15 feet
before lacing a seven iron to
within a foot of the cup on the
11th. He also holed a 40-foot
birdie putt for a share of the
lead on the 13th.
Jamieson, who came to n a -
tional prominence. with a sur-
prise challenge in the Masters,
played the back nine first and
made his big move with a streak
that started on the first hole,
He made a 30-foot putt there,
hit a six iron to five feet on the
third, cut a four wood second
shot into the wind and dropped
it feather-soft 18 inches from
the cup for eagle three on the
fourth and holed from 18 feet
on the next hole.

No news is wet news
Thursday, June 23, 1972 was a day when most of what little
sports action was to have taken place, did not because of that
revolting white blob at the upper right of the picture. Rain, rain
go away!
