72 yesterday early in the first round
of the 75th United States Open G olf
Fitzsimons, a lightly-considered long-
shot in a field of the world's best shot-

in one on the second hole, needed only
four putts on the first five holes and
scrambled home over the wet and sog-

Steeler's sign Greenwood
PITTSBURGH - Defensive end L. C.
Greenwood signed a multi-year contract

ending speculation that he might join
another football team.

But the Americans failed to fulfill con-
tractual obligations and eventually fold-
ed. That opened the way for the 6-foot-
6, 245-pound All Pro to return to the
World Champion Steelers.
