Price shoots 67, cruises to victory in TPC

T- I
SPORTING VIEWS.

PONTE VEDRA, Fla. (AP) -
Nick Price, with those around him
fading, shot a 5-under-par 67
Sunday to cruise to a record-setting
victory Sunday in The Players
Championship.
The PGA champion from Zim-
babwe won by five strokes, a wire-
to-wire triumph in the 20th annual
championship of golf's touring pros.
Of the 11 men closest to Price's
54-hole lead, only two could break
par. One of the most popular and re-
spected men on the U.S. tour, Price
won with a 270 total on the TPC at
Sawgrass, three strokes better than
the course record of 273 set by Mark
McCumber in 1988.

The sixth victory of Price's 11-
season career on the PGA tour was
worth $450,000 from the total purse
of $2.5 million, the largest in the
world for a full-field event.
It was Price's fifth triumph in
less than 24 months, moving him
from fifth to third in the world
rankings.
Bernhard Langer of Germany,
with a birdie on the island-green of.
the par-3 17th, shot a 71 and took
second at 275.
"I was always trying to win the
tournament, but he just kept making
birdies and Greg (Norman) and I just
kept struggling to make the putts,"
Langer said.

Norman, a winner earlier this
month, posed the last threat to Price.
But Norman's bid failed when his
tee shot slipped off the island and
into the pond on the 17th.
A bogey-bogey finish left
Norman with a par-72, dropping
behind Langer and into a tie for third
with Gil Morgan at 276.
Morgan, who played more than
an hour in front of the other leaders,
shot a 65, the best round on a windy
day, to surge from 26th place. Mark
O'Meara was next at 73-277.
Paul Azinger, Ken Green, Rocco
Mediate and Joe Ozaki of Japan fol-
lowed at 278. Ozaki shot 70,
Mediate 71, Green 72 and Azinger

73.
Price led by one at the start of the
day. He birdied all four of the par-5
holes and slammed the door on the
victory with a pair of great shots
from the banks of fairway bunkers
on the fourth and 10th holes.
Price's first birdie-4 came on the
second hole and gave him a two-shot
advantage. He built it to three with a
spectacular shot from an awkward
stance in a bunker along the fourth
fairway. The probable bogey turned
into a birdie when Price sent the ball
to within three feet of the flag.
After playing the front in 33,
Price put himself in trouble again
with a drive that drifted onto the
bank of another fairway bunker. He
had to play his second with the ball
at knee-level, but got on the green
and two-putted for a valuable par.
With no one able to make a con-
certed move at him, Price eased
home. A birdie from about seven
feet on the par-5 16th gave him a
five-shot lead with two holes to
play.
The Michigan men's
cagers, under the
tutelage of Coach Dave
Strack, made
back-to-back trips to
the Final Four in 1964
and 1965. Neither time
did they return with a
national championship.

Atlanta will make
thi~rd time a charm
by Michael Rosenberg
Daily Sports Writer
Springtime is here, and with it comes baseball. So, without further ado,
here are my picks for the 1993 baseball season. (After all, who needs ado?)
American League East
1. Baltimore - Great ballpark. Solid pitching. Good defense. Decent
hitting. What more could you ask for?
2. Toronto - The Blue Jays probably have the most talent in the AL.,
but, as Vanilla Ice showed, talent isn't everything.
3. New York - George is back. Unfortunately, so is Pat Kelly.
4. Cleveland - The Tribe was devastated by the boating accident that
killed pitchers Tim Crews and Steve Olin. Hopefully the team will recover.
5. Detroit - Sorry. The only race worth watching in the Motor City
this summer will be the one for mayor.
6. Milwaukee - Maybe interim commissioner/Brewers owner Bud Selig
can design a 20-team playoff, so that Milwaukee at least has a chance.
7. Boston - Roger Clemens may win twenty for the Red Sox this year.
Of course, that could be half of Boston's total.
American League West
1. Chicago - On the one hand, the White Sox should be the best team
in the American League. On the other hand, they play in Chicago, which
hasn't produced a pennant winner since 1957.
2. Minnesota - Andy MacPhail has put together another solid all-
around ballclub. If no team dominates this division, watch the Twins.
3. Kansas City - Once again, it looks like the Royals should be
contenders. But this team has a habit of getting eliminated by July fourth.
4. Oakland - Rickey pouts, LaRussa shouts, Oakland ends up twenty
games out.
5. Seattle - New ownership. New philosophy. Same old Mariners.
6. Texas - Awesome hitting, but, as usual, the Rangers have fewer
arms than Switzerland.
7. California - Three pitchers and a crowd of busts.
National League East
1. New York - It won't take much to win the N.L. East this season,
and the Mets are the best of the lot.
2. Montreal - Once again, the Expos will give everybody a scare but
finish out of first.
3. St. Louis - Cardinals' sin: not enough pitching.
4. Philadelphia - Phillies don't have the depth to contend.
5. Pittsburgh - The Team That Free Agency Beat.
6. Chicago - The lights at Wrigley will be the brightest thing about
