ossions on the Dossibility of a pro football career with the
Washington Redskins of the National Football League.
"We arn interest d," said Tim Tenerario nersonnel director
of the Redskins. "It would take him a long while to get
ready, bit I understand he is quick and has the agility to be a
def-nsive end or tackle.

team official said.

by the U.S. Open in his bid for
a Grand Slam of golf, made a
snectacular comeback after

gey six on the second hole.
le started his charge by
sinking a 35-foot birdie putt at
the fourth and added another
birdie on the 524-yard sixth,
rated by many as the toughest
hole of the course, and reached
the turn in par 36.
COMING HOME, he sank an
eight - footer for a birdie on the

for birdies on the 12th, rolled in
the 40-footer for an eagle-three
at the 14th, and got another
birdie at the 65th with a putt
from 12 feet.
