'u CAPTAIN DICK EVANS FIRES 142 TO LEAD MICHIGAN
* s *
Down OSU, MSC
By TED PAPE S
Michigan's weekend record of
success was kept intact by the
golf team at the University Course
The Wolverines swept both ends
of a combination meet with two
Conference foes, defeating Ohio
r State, 20-16, and Michigan State,
VICTORY OVER the Buckeyes
came only after a bitter battle
which. wasn't decided until the
"X last of the day's 12 individual
matches was completed.
Captain Dick Evans was the
sharpest golfer in the entire
field, as he captured the medal
with a 36-hole total of 142
strokes, two under par.
He tossed a blanket over 111'/2
of the 12 possible points he could
have won from his opponets, Bob
Anderson of Ohio and Don Perne
of the Spartans.
AN IMPOSSIBLE lie behind a
tree on the 18th hole caused Evans
y- to shoot away from the green on
his second swing, enabling Ander-
son' to sneak in for a split of one
t point, marring Dick's otherwise
Dean Lind of Michigan fash-
toned two r~ounds into a 149
mnark to finish second best. He
collected four of six possible&
from Ohio's number two player,
Don' Johnson, and all of six
from Michigan State's Reggie
The tightest duel of the day was
between the number one golfers,
Tom Nieporte of the Bucks and
Wolverine Bob Olson.
THEY DIVIDED three points
over the first 18 holes, and going
into the 17th on their second
round they were still deadlocked.
Olson weakened momentarily to
muff a 30-inch putt and Nieporte
took full advantage to score a one
stroke victory good for 21/ of the
three team points at stake.
Neither Olson nor Nieporte
were equal to the pace set by
Evans, Olson carding 152 and
the Ohio ace 151.
It remained for Hugh Wright,
playing in the number six spot, toII
nail'down the edge over the Buck-
He made the 27-hole turn in
the twilight with four out of four
points already in the bag, and
then came down the stretch to
clip the two remaining markers
from Jim Tewart on the final nine
BIRKDALE, Eng. - (PM - The
United States gave the British
their once-every-two-years glimpse
of the Walker Cup yesterday, then
wrapped up the big golf trophy to
return it to its perennial Ameri-
The British fought with amaze-
ing strength to prevent that re-
curring trip, but they bowed in
the end, six matches to three,
with three halved.
THE THREE British victories
were over a trio of America's fin-
est players -- Frank Stranahan,
Charlie Coe, and the American
Captain, Willie Turnesa.
Sam Urzetta, Jim McHale, Bill
Campbell, Dick Chapman, and
Harold Paddock Jr., scored vic-
tories for the United States.

ing of Jacobi, MEwen, Konrad,

Neuman, Konrad, and LaRue.
The Wolverines' Tom Emblad
and Arnold Smith of Michigan
State tied for first place in the
pole vault with a jump of 12' 6",
while Bob Evans and Bud Sexton
of Michigan, and Ray McKay and
Alex Andrulis of the Spartans, all
tied for first in the high jump with
a leap of 5' 11".

CAPTAIN DICK EVANS had himself another "day" at the golf course
'yesterday, and it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.
The big swinger from Shaker Heights, Ohio found himself in
a fa miliar spot when the 36-hole action had subsided-ahead of the
pack by a wide margin of seven strokes.
He teed of unceremoniously in the number three match early in
the morning, playing once again in the shadow of Michigan's most
publicized golfer, Bob Olson, who seems to have some sort of a
monopoly on the number one position. That didn'tr Prevent Evans
from going right to the front in the scoring, however.
Putter Takes a Beating
A T THE OUTSET it'looked as though he was headed for real trouble.
0n the very first green he flubbed a tiny two-foot putt for a bogey
five, and as he strode toward the second tee he whacked his putter
into the ground-and broke it!
H~e calmly called his caddy aside and sent him scampering
back to the clubhouse after another instrument, and then pro-
ceeded to stroke toward the next green which fortunately was 545
yards in the distance.
The new putter arrived just in time for him to tap in a birdie
putt and send him on his way even with par. He was more careful
from that point on as he added two more birds to make the turn in 34.
It looked like he had a record in the making when he hit his
tenth consecutive green for another birdie on number ten, but
he lost the touch for a spell and was saddled with four bogeys to
finish the first round with a par '72.
He fought, scrambled and swung his way to a neat 70 on his
afternoon excursion for medalist distinction, and a big edge over
Ohio State, traditional golfing arch-rival of Michigan.
Three Title Contenders
T HE EVENT brought together three of the top candidates for this
year's individual Western Conference golfing title, Olson, Evans
and Tom Nieporte of the Buckeyes. The latter was second to champion
Fred Wampler in last year's tournament at Columbus. Evans was sixth
in the field and first for Michigan in the same playoffs, while Olson
was ineligible to compete.
Nieporte and Olson can play better golf than they displayed
,yesterday. Evans can play better only if his putter quits failing him
in crucial spots. He has no peer on the tees and fairways but the
greens have always meant trouble for him.
Even with the ball~y putter he usually cards scores that threaten
standard figures. Yesterday he was talking to himself and the ball
after some of his putts went awry. On the 14th green he spent at
least three minutes convincing *everyone that he was about to miss
a 30-incher, only to slide it neatly into the cup.
Kie ppl er Feels the Pain
COACH BOB KEPPLER of Ohio State was on hand yesterday in his
Ctraditional scarlet sport coat to get some indication of what to
expect from the Wolverines when they meet again in Evanston later
this month for the Big Ten Championships.
The dapper Buckeye coach must feel the pain every time one
of his teams r'uns up against Evans, who could just as well be an Ohio
friend instead of a bitter foe. The big Michigan captain is quite proud
of the fact that he was the 1949 Amateur Champion of Ohio. Last
year an attack of appendicitis hampered his defense of the state
crown, but he may return this summer to try to regain it, much to the
chagrin of Ohio State boosters.
Besides being the top Michigan golfer in my book, Evans rates
as one of the finest young Wolverine athletes from a. personality
standpoint. The popular lad was ,followed by an appreciative gallery
yesterday, including his father and mother who had driven from
their home in suburban Cleveland to witness another in their son's
long list of successes.
IDick will be rated only as a darkhorse contender for the crown
at Evanston in a couple of weeks but his winning complex cannot be
Once again the passing was on
the spotty side. Either the passer
couldn't get rid of the ball be-
fore he had to eat it or the re-
ceivers dropped the pigskin.
JUST ABOUT everybody got into
the passing act. Kress, Putich,
Oldham, Dick Balzhiser and Don
ZanFagna'took turns chucking the
ball, all having about equal success.
Ends Bary McDermott and Tim
Greene were the most reliable tar-
gets for the paspers. Green and Tad
Stanford went for considerable
yardage on the end around, with
wingmen George Dutter and Bob
Top also carrying occasionally.
Dave Tinkham, right half on of-
fense but left half on defense,
proved to be a rough customer on
defense for the Red squad. On one
play Tink drifted the width of the
field to stop Tom Witherspoon
with a beautiful tackle.
