'Wins When
Kroll Drops
34th Hole
CANTON, Mass. (P) - Stretch-
runner Jack Burke, Jr., turned a
frosty putter into a blade of blaz-
ing steel yesterday for a comebak
3 and 2 victory over Ted Kroll
which added the Professional Golf-
ers Association title to his Masters
Championship.
The boyish-looking, 33-year-old
Houston pro thus became the
second man to win these two
major championships in a single
year. Sam Snead did it in 1949.
On Birdie Binge
Three down through the 19th
hole after missing four putts of
four feet and under, Burke went
on a birdie binge on the front
nine of the afternoon round to
crack the iron spirit of Kroll, the
37-year-old ex-infantry sergeant
from Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
The new champion nailed five
i birdies in six holes, starting at
the 20th, and four birdies in a
row--from the 24th through the
28th.
He sank an 18-foot birdie putt
on the 22nd and then in his fan-
tastic finishing spurt on the front
side dropped consecutive birdie
- birdie putts of eight, three, two
and seven feet-attesting to brilli-
ant iron play and renewed confi-
dence on the greens.
From three-down at one stage,
he quickly reversed the trend of
the match to take a two-hole lead
at the 27th which he stubbornly
refused to relinquish,
The holes ran out for Kroll on
the 187-yard par three 34th, where
the Florida professional hooked
his tee shot wide of the green,
chipped 10 feet past the hole and
took a bogey four, losing to Burke's
par three.
Before this hole seVen straight
holes had been halved - the 27th
tlrough the 33rd - as the two
finalists shot stroke for stroke in
even par golf.

To Key Chip Shooting

CANTON, Mass. (o)-A smiling,
towel-draped Jackie Burke Jr.
confessed to "an amazing round
of chipping" in the final 18 holes
of his PGA Championship victory
yesterday over Ted Kroll.
The baby-faced Texan, two-
down after the morning round,
notched four straight birdies in
the afternoon and held on for a
3 and 2 triumph.
"I had an amazing round of
chipping this afternoon," said the
33-year-old winner of this year's
Master's Tournament.
"I was too tired and he played
like gangbusters" was Kroll's ex-
planation of the sudden turnabout
in {the action.
"I had a system of putting
which deserted me in the morn-
ing but I got it back for the final
round," Burke said. Burke ex-
panded on his system by saying
he squares the face of his mallet-
type putter with the course he in-
tends the ball to take - not at
the hole itself.
When asked what he felt was
the deciding factor of the match,
Burke replied:
"It was my par four on the 32nd
hole."
On that hole Burke - trying to
hold on to his lead against his
dangerous foe - drove to a fair-
way trap on the right. His seven-
iron shot at a tree-obscured green

sailed high with a slice that put
it directly in front of the green.
His chip went within four feet of
the pin and Jackie dropped his
putt for a par.
Kroll thought he would surely
gain ground on the hole after driv-
ing long and true but wound up
with a discouraging halve.

YPISLANTI (1-A half dozen
veterans and more than 30 rookies
trying to land steady jobs with
the Detroit Lions had a pair of
workouts yesterday at Eastern
Michigan College.
Coach Buddy Parker wasted no
time in getting the squad to work
after more than an hour devoted

to picture-taking. The squad got
out of full-dress suits and into
shorts for brisk drills in the 80-
plus degree weather.
'Rough Stuff' Today
"We'll get down to the rough
stuff tomorrow," said Parker. "We
have a big job to do, and we can't
afford to lose any time."
The "big job" the veteran coach
referred to is rebuilding the Lions
into title contenders again. The
club finished last in the National
Football League's Western Divis-
ion last year after a string of suc-
cesses.
Gene Gedman, one of three ser-
vicemen returning for the drills,
arrived late and missed the first-
wourkouts. But Yale Lary, a de-
fensive back, and tackle Oliver
Spencer were on hand and both re-
ported themselves in good condi-
tion.

The Lions also are missing three
of their top backfield, choices-
Howard Cassady of Ohio State,
Jerry Reichow of Iowa and Don
McIlhenny of Southern Methodist.
All three are working out with the
College All-Stars on the North-
western campus at Evanston, Ill,
and will take part in the Aug. 10
contest between the collegians and
the pro champion C lev e lan d
Browns.
So Parker is assured that those
three will be in top condition when
they arrive at the Ypsilanti camp.
Barry Basel, a big tackle who
played at Michigan Normal (now
Eastern Michigan College) last
season, failed to report.
Another absentee was first-
string offensive guard George At-
kins, who sent word through Harry
Gilmer, Lion quarterback, that he
did not plan to report. The coaches
could not explain the move.
