LOS ANGELES, Jan. 7.-(/P)-BabeE
Ruth's former understudy with theI
New York Yankees, Sammy Byrd,
surprised everyone by grabbing theI
lead today in the $12,500 Los Angeles
Golf Championship with a dazzling
66 over the par 71 Wilshire Country
Club course.
Always a steady shotmaker, Byrd'
was. superlative today as he drove
long ones and putted flawlessly. He
rammed home six birdies and made
only one mistake during the entire
18 holes.
This pace -making performance was.
especially good because of the heavy
going caused by recent rains. The
slow greens spoiled the game of
many a competitor in the field of 135
qualifiers. It boosted him ahead of
such players as Jimmy Hines of New
York, Willie Hunter of Los Angeles'
Riviera Club, and Olin Dutra, the
host pro, all of whom had 69's. The
championship is being conducted
under winter rules.
Byrd, who quit baseball in 1936 and
took up golf seriously, had birdies
on the third, sixth, eighth. 14th, 15th,
and 16. On the par three he punched
a wedge short off the tee. That was
his only slip.
