Trevino cops U.S.

Hairston reveals
From Wire Service Reports
Wolverine basketball fandom tentatively received something
else to cheer about yesterday afternoon as the Associated Press
reported that Detroit Kettering's hoop ace Lindsay Hairston, one
of the most sought-after players in the state, apparently has decided
to enroll at Michigan next fall.
The 6-8 sharpshooter, who only a few weeks ago publicly re-
vealed his intention of attending Michigan State, reportedly in-
formed his former assistant basketball coach at Kettering, Ed
Williams, that he had changed his mind after mulling over several
offers.
Williams, assistant to Kettering coach Charles Nichols, said
that he had spoken with Hairston over the past weekend and that
Hairston indicated that he wished to attend Michigan along with
his teammate and friend Joe Johnson.
Johnson, a 6-0 guard who controlled the ball for theKettering
team, signed a Michigan letter of intent last week.
"Hairston and Johnson played together for three years on
our Kettering team and they are real close pals and Lindsay said
he wanted to stay with Johnson," Williams explained.
The switch came as news to MSU where an aide to MSU bas-
ketball mentor, Gus Ganakas, said "As far. as we are concerned.
we believe Lindsay is still coming to State although we have noth-
ing in writing and his scholarship application has not cleared
through the Big Ten athletic office as yet."
An athletic department spokesman indicated that Michigan
has received no word from the former Kettering star.

ARDMORE, Pa. (P) - Lee
Trevino abandoned his har
go-lucky role for that of grim
destroyer, shot a two-under
68 yesterday and beat Jack 1
laus in their 18-hole playoff for
the United States Open Golf
Championship. The frustrated
Nicklaus had a 71.
Nicklaus, favorite to make
this his third American national
open title, never recovered from
poor play out of the distinctive
white-sand traps on both the
second and third holes.
He failed to get it out on '
first try on each hole, taking a
bogey six and a double bogey
five. That gave Trevino, who
had bogeyed the first from a trap,
a two-stroke lead and he n(
trailed again,
It was all over when Nicklan
bogeyed the tough 17 from a
trap and Trevino got his par
with a one-putt. That put him
three ahead with one hole to play.
It was the second U.S. Open
title - generally considered t
most prestigious of all the
world's golf championships - ion
the 31-year-old Trevino, a Mexi-
can - American grandson of a.
Dallas gravedigger.
They started the day's play in
hot, humid weather that gave
way to a violent thunderstor i
that delayed play for 22 nminute
as they played the sixth hole.

But Trevino, chewing deter-
minedly on a cud of gum, went
two ahead again when he-hit the
flagstick with his approach on
the eighth hole, tae bail drop-
ping down less than a foot from
the flag.
Nicklaus got a ducce on the
ninth, hitting an iron to 30 inch-
es, but he bogeyed the 10th
when a poor seco'i d shot vas
short of the green.
Nicklaus closed to ons agaton
with a 12-foot birdie on the 111h,
but Trevino wouidn't quit. He
rammed in a 20-foot putt on the
next hole and the margir, was
back to two.

of the trap and danced on to the
green. He sank for the par he
didn't really need.
