CLEVELAND tP) - Newly-
crowned United States Op e n
golf champion Lee Trevino
doesn't plan on heeding Jac k
Nicklaus' advice to slow down
- at least not for a while.
"I'll play 'em all, whether
-they're for $60,000 or $250,040.
It doesn't matter to me. If
they've got a golf tournament
going, I'll be there. If they're
putting up the money, I'll play
on a gravel road," Trevino said
yesterday before a practice
round at the Beechmont Coun-
try Club.
Trevino, although again in
possession of the golf world's
most prized title, doesn't plan
on taking any time off for sev-
eral weeks.
Most winners of the U.S.
Open title take a few weeks
off after their triumph to come
back to earth.
Not Trevino.
He beat Nicklaus, probably
the most feared competitor in
the game today, in the 18-
hole playoff at Ardmore, Pa.

tern Open in Chicago.
He doesn't plan a week off
until sometime in August.
He's played 20 tournaments
out of a maximum of 24 - and
missed a couple because of the
illness of his mother and with-
drew from two others for the
same reason.
In those 20 he has been in the
