, O HARRY HAMPTON IS DEPENDABLE GOLFER MEMPHIS, Tenn. (P) Har ry Hampton, the stocky Memphis professional, who flashed into the headlines and the temporary leadership leadership in the recent National open, and then tied with several, others for eighth place, is such a quiet sort of a fellow that few or.t.ide of Dixie ever heard of hi;n before. Hampton is a strong, consistent golfer. Last year he finished sixth in the National. In ''aeh of the eight tournaments in which he has played he has been near the top but not on the top. Hampton has an unorthodox style all his own. Heavily muscled shoulders enable him to get more power behind a short swing than most golfers got with a full swing. Like most pros, his iron shots are the best in his bag and he is fairly consistent on the greens.
