Michigan's golfers should haV%
one one thought in mind this
year: grab the Big Ten Cham-
pionship which barely eluded
them in 1959 when the Confer-
ence tourney was held on the
friendly fairways of the Univer-
sity Course.
The second-place Wolverines of
1959 will begin the 1960 season
with a nucleus of three lettermen,
including Captain Larry Mark-
man and juniors Joe Brisson and
Dick Youngberg who were fifth
and tenth respectively in the Cony.
ference Meet last spring.
Lost by graduation from the
squad that was runner-up to
powerful Purdue are ex-captain
Ray Lovell, and lettermen Pat
Keefe and Chuck Blackett.
The three-man nucleus will
need plenty of help, ,especially
from the sophomores, according
to 'Coach Bert Katzenmeyer who
says that the Conference. will be
much stronger in 1960.
"It gets stronger every year,"
said the coach. He explained that

ing, with three transfers from

a couple of juniors, Frank James
and Bob Davis, who led the Con-
ference Meet at the half-way
mark as sophs last spring. Davis,
a 25-year-old service veteran,
went on to finish second to Pur-
due's perennial champ, John Kon-
sek, who has won the Big Ten two
straight years and will be around

The Boilermakers, Big Tenh
Champs two straight years along
with their ace, will have three
other members of the 1959 squad
back. The only two graduationr
losses were Carl Mitchell and
Harley Drake.
Indiana, which tied for third
place with Ohio State last spring,
certainly should not be any
weaker with their entire team re-
turning plus a 1958 letterman who
didn't play in the conference, not4
to mention the usual promising
sophomores. LARRY MARKMAN
Ohio State fits into the sameg
category along with all the other

Michigan State, Northwestern,
Minnesota, and Illinois.
Counts on Two
To combat this improvement of
the rest of the conference, Katz-
enmeyer has singled out two boys
as likely to come through for the
linksmen this spring.
One is junior John Everhardus,
an Ann Arbor product who was on
the varsity last year but didn't
make the first team. "John was
under serious consideration all
year," said Katzenmeyer.
The other is Tom Wilson, a
transfer student from Valparasio.
who played on the freshman
squad in 1959. "I singled out Tom
because of his tournament back-
ground," explained Katzenmeyer.
Wilson, a Detroiter, will be a
senior in credits this year, but is
only a junior in eligibility, thus,
he could play two years for the
Wolverines.
Letter Winners Strengthen Squad
One thing the 1960 Wolverines
can't do is make the comeback
that the 1959 team did, a jump
from ninth to second in the Big
Ten.

In relation to this, Katzenmeye'r
said that he, and especially the
boys, were still disappointed.
"We had a grip on the Cham-
pionship but it slipped away," he
said. "Don't get me wrong, how-
ever. Second is certainly better
than ninth. The boys worked
hard and the Conference Meet
was the climax, but I guess we
were just not supposed to win it."
The Wolverines, who had com-
piled a 8-5 dual meet record dur-
ing the regular season, were the
first day leaders in the Big Ten

Meet on their home course. The
margin was a slim one, three
strokes over Indiana, but it ex-
isted.
The next day, Purdue's experi-
enced Boilermakers seemed to
thrive in the early morning rain
and took a 54-hole lead of five
strokes over Michigan and Indi-
ana into the final 18 holes.
At this point, the Purdue team
really turned on the steam to
win the title going away with a
20-stroke margin, 1555-1575 over
the host squad.
