Harbert, Snead Upset in PGA Openers

Sugar Ray Wins 10 Round,
Split Decision in Comeback

Palmer, Bolt Knock Out
Stars in Second Round
Burkemo, Other Ex-Champs Also Beaten
As 36-Hole Matches Get Under Way Today

SAN FRANCISCO (P) - Sugary
Ray Robinson, bouncing off the
canvas after a sixth round knock-
down, won a split decision over
number one middleweight conten-
der Rocky Castellani in their 10
round fight last night at the Cow
Palace.

New Champ
ROCKFORD, Ill. (P) - The
Western Amateur Golf Tourna-
ment was assured of a, new cham-
pion Monday as Hillman Robbins
Jr. of Memphis walloped defend-
ing titlist Bruce Cudd, Portland,
Ore., 8 and 6 in the 36-hole quar-
ter 'finals.
The wiry 23-year-old Memphis
State star, 1954 National Inter-
collegiate champion, moved into
today's double round semifinals
at the parched Rockford Country
Club against the home course vet-
eran, Alex Welsh.

after a shot at the song and dance
racket, was in almost complete
command except for the sixth
round, when he was knocked to his
knees by a left hook and right to
the head.
He made a three-point landing,
then got to his knees and took the
nine count.
Judge Frank Carter scored it 56-
54 for Robinson and referee Jack
Donie had the same figures. Judge
Jack Silver gave it to Castellani
by 56 to 54. The Associated Press
card showed Robinson the winner
57-53.
Concentrates on Body
Robinson, 34, concentrated his
attack . on Castellani's body
throughout the fight, shifting to
the head only when the Cleveland
fighter lowered his guard.
In the eighth round, Robinson
opened up with both hands to the
head briefly, long enough to shake
Castellani with a series of left and
rights. Rocky, obviously hurting,
hung on to last out the round.

DETROIT (R) - Johnny Palmer,
who's supposed to be too nice a guy
to win in tough golf competition,
and Tommy Bolt, who. can be
tough as a billy goat out on the
links, scored a pair of notable
victories in the second round of
the PGA championship yesterday
as two "sudden death" rounds re-
duced the field to 16 players.
Palmer, a finalist in the 1949
PGA championship but more often
a first round victim, ousted de-
fending champion Chick Harbert
1-up.
Bolt Downs Snead
Bolt trimmed three-time winner
Sammy Snead for the second time
in as many match play duels, 3
and 2, then jovially remarked he
"felt sorry" of Sam.
This match, a replay of their
heated 39-hole quarter-final duel
at St. Paul last year, drew the bulk
of a crowd of about 3,000 that
piled into the Meadowbrook Course

.to see some torrid golf on a steamy
day.
But compared to last year's
match, when Bolt threatened to
quit in the middle, it was an anti-
climax. Bolt was ahead all the way
Rocky Offered
Half Million
ROME (P)-The sports paper
Corriere Dello Sport said yes-
terday that an Italian promot-
er has offered world heavy-
weight champion Rocky Marci-
ano half a million dollars for a
title bout with European Champ
Franco Cavicchi.
as Snead's erratic putter, which
had worked well during two days
of qualifying, acted up again.
As a result of yesterday's two
18-hole rounds-the short matches
which the pros hate - the tourna-
ment was left without a single
ex-champion as it moved into the
36-hole stage beginning today.
Ex-Champs Beaten
Not only did Harbert and Snead
go out, but Walter Burkemo, 1953
champion and runner-up to Har-
bert last year, was beaten in the
first round by Cary Middlecoff, the'
winning-est player of the pro golf
season, "and older ex-champions
Gene Sarazen and Vic Ghezzi went
out in the second.
Jack Fleck of Davenport, Iowa,
the 1955 U.S. Open champion also
was among the winners, defeating
Jay Herbert of Woodmere, N. Y.
