MAIN 777-8879 Jack Nicklaus leads tournament ATLANTA (AP) - Jack Nicklaus enters today's shortened final round of the unusual $250,000 Tournament . Players Championship with a two-stroke lead over J.C. Snead and only five holes left to capture his first golf tournament in six months, "I haven't won for a long lime and I want to win," Nicklaus said Sunday. A victory would push Nicklaus over $200,000 in earnings for the year by capturing the $50,000 first prize. The unusual circumstances which set up the 10 a.mm, EOT, starting time ware brought about by Sunday's violent weather which turned the 6,883- yard, par 72 Atlanta Country Club course into a virtual swimming hole.

MOSES EXXON Service Station 3rd & Laurel 777-8558 Nicklaus put on one of his patented charges Sunday in what was expected to be the final round of the event, overcoming the three-shot lead which Snead had taken after the third round of play. There were 12 players still on the course when a third thundershower occurred, halting play for the day. Two earlier rain delays of two hours and 38 minutes had threatened to wipe out play, but 60 golfers in the field of 72 finished before the rains struck for the third time. Tournament officials said all scores would count and Nicklaus, who carded five birdies Sunday, through 13 holes, went off from the 14th tee today. Snead, 32, and the nephew of Sam Snead, was in the final threesome just behind Nicklaus and had six holes to play. ABC will televise the final holes beginning at 4:30 p.m., EOT. Snead birdied his first two holes Sunday for a five-stroke lead over Nicklaus before faltering. He bogied the third of six holes while Nicklaus got even with Snead, knocking in birdies on Nos. 3, 4 and 6. Nicklaus, who only won at Hawaii in February, then birdied 11 and 13 for his margin." "After being three shots back, I had to like my comeback," said Nicklaus. "Despite all the rain, I feel pretty good." Nicklaus said he kept dry while waiting out the rain delays by visiting at some of the homes just off the course. In third place behind Snead and Nicklaus, were Lou Graham, Gene Littler and Dave Hill, all at 10-under par. They will finish out their rounds today. Bob Murphy with a 68 for 279 was the leader Sunday among those who finished. PGA Champion Lee Trevino had a 74 for 284 while U.S. Open winner Hale Irwin shot a 72 for 288.

Serving YPM Since PR 7-443! — W* P*liv«r Winston likes to hurt people By MARKY KING Associated Press Writer FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — University of Arkansas assistant coach Jimmy Johnson on Dennis Winston: "He has such a great frame of mind for playing defense. In a way, he kind of wants to hurt people. He makes the kind of hit that can pick up a defense ... pick up the whole tempo." UA defensive back Rollen Smith on Winston: "Dennis is just mean. He likes to hurt people. He walks around beating on things." UA assistant coach Harold Horton on Winston: "He has a mean streak. He had a mean streak even when I saw him play basketball in high school." Dennis Winston on himself: "I don't do anything to psyche myself. When I get down to the fieldhouse it's all serious business. I just like to hit people out there all the time." Winston has done much to solve Arkansas' biggest defensive headache since being moved from defensive end in the spring to linebacker at the beginning of fall practice. "I feel much more confident than I did at the end of spring practice," said Horton, who coaches the UA linebackers. Horton said Winston is making the transition from defensive end to linebacker "better than I anticipated." "He's moving real well, getting to the football and reacting to what he's seeing," Horton said. "He throws a big punch when he does hit someone. He doesn't have the greatest technique, but being as physical as he is, he can hurt someone." Winston is 6-foot-l, weighs 220 and can run. Arkansas Coach Frank Broyles has said Winston could play any number of positions, including running back. "He gives us speed at linebacker," Horton said. "We put him to the weak side since most of the plays are going away from the formation. He has so much more speed than any of the other front seven. He can run people down. "And, he's physical enough to line up and whip someone com- ing right at him. When you're playing with a 200-pounder, it's a little different." Winston played linebacker as a junior at Mafianna but misses his senior year when the city had racial problems. He started at linebacker in ihe fall of 1973, but missed much of thq two-a-day practices with injuries. He was moved to defensive end and broke into the starting lineup at midseason. Broyles said Winston's biggest problem at linebacker would be reading the keys and going to the football without hesitation. "He can't take false steps," Horton said. "He's got to make the quickest and shortest path to the ball carrier or people are going to cut him off." Horton has also been pleased by the rapid development of Marvin Dailyn who was moved from fullback to linebacker a week ago. "He has a lot of natural instinct and complete vision of the football field," Horton said. Daily weighs 226 and runs the 40 in 4.8. Horton Wants him to play at about 218. Daily worked with the second defensive unit in Saturday's scrimmage and Horton said he "performed as well as any kid we've had in only his fourth or fifth day at linebacker." Daily was a step or two slow at fullback, Morton said he believed he was quicker from an up stance. "When he gets to the ball carrier, he has a lot of force," Horton said. He said Daily has a chance to make the starting lineup oh the strong side—a position now manned by Hal McAfee. McAfee was the team's leading tackier until he injured a knee in the Tulsa game in 1973. The injury to McAfee, the graduation of Danny Rhodes and the fact that Billy Burns has been injured during much of his college career prompted the movement of Winston and Daily. For Horton, the picture has turned from bleak to bright. Dolphins are dull, they win 8y JOHN R. SKiNNER A!* Sports Writer MIAMI (AP)-The methodical, run-dominated offense which has taken the Miami Dolphins to two straight Super Bowl crowns has been called dull and boring by critics, but to Coach Don Shula it's a thing of beauty. It wins. And for fullback I-arry Csonka's final year in the National Football League, it will remain. Shula badly wants to be the first coach to capture three straight Super Bowl titles, and he won't worry about finding replacements for World Football League defections Csonka, Jim Kiick and Paul Warfield until he has to in 1975. Shula escaped the players' r» ' , ir^^i strike with no sign of team dis- Pate captures golf title Mike Kolen, Doug Swift and Bob Matheson, cornerbacks Tim Foley and Curtis Johnson and safeties Dick Anderson and Jake Scott. The "53 defense," begun two years ago to solve an injury problem, has evolved into a key pass defense. It finds Matheson, who wears No. 53 oh his uniform, replacing a tackle and lining up either as an end or linebacker. The rule change which appears to hurt Miami the most is the moving of the goalposts back 10 yards. Soccer-style kicker cGaro Yepremian had been a threat to score whenever the Dolphins reached midfield. Tanner is confident By KAROL STONGER AP Sports Writer FOREST HILLS, N.Y. (AP) — Roscoe Tanner and Arthur Ashe, two of only five American men left in the U.S. Open Tennis Championships, figure that, for them, it is this year or never. "I have a lot confidence on grass " said Tanner after he upset Hie Nastase Monday, "I feel I play pretty well on it. Next year, it's going to go to clay and it's going to be awfully hard. "Arthur feels the same way. If we're going to do anything, we'll have to do it this year." Ashe, the No. 8 seed who won the U.S. crown in 1968, will try to "do something" today against Guillermo Vilas, the No. 9 seed from Argentina who is nine years his junior. Tanner, who beat Ashe in the third round of Wimbledon, did his thing Monday, upsetting seventh-seeded Nastase, the 1972 U.S. Open winner, 4-6, 6-7, 7-5, 6-4, 6-4.

ST. HOPE, ARK. Another one of the Americans, Marty Riessen, is scheduled to meet Indian Vijay Am- ritraj in the second feature of the day. Nastase's good friend, Jimmy Connors, and Stan Smith, who won here in 1971, are the other United States hopes for the title and the $23,500 first prize. Connors celebrated his 22nd birthday and protected his top seeding with a 6-1, 7-5, 6-7, 6-4 victory over John Alexander of Australia. Smith, seeded third, advanced to the fourth round with a 6-3, 7-5, 6-4 triumph over Brian Teacher, a fellow Californian. Second-seeded Billie Jean King led a march of four American women into the quarter-finals, bringing the U.S. total to five. Favored Chris Evert advanced earlier along with three Australians. Ms. King, like her compatriots, relied on experience in overcoming some youthful but promising players. She eliminated 17-year-oia Betsky Nagelsen of St. Petersburg, Fla., 64, 6-2, sixth-seeded Rosemary Casals beat 18-year- old Dianne Fromholtz of Australia 7-6, 6-2; Julie Heldman ousted 17-year-old Martina Nav- ratilova of Chezechoslovakia 64, 6-4 and Nancy Gunter sidelined 19-year-old Ann Kiyomura of San Mateo, Calif., 6-2, 6-2. unity, with 34 veterans reporting to camp during the strike. The only sign of unhappiness has been in veterans' demands for fat, renegotiated contracts which have been offered to only a handful to keep them from being snatched up by the WFL. A few rookies will probably make the team, like top draft pick Donald Reese, a defensive end, but none are likely to crack the veteran and still youthful lineup unless injuries develop. The Dolphins also have experienced backup men for every position. The offensive line of center Jim Langer, guards Larry Little and Bob Kuechenberg, tackles Norm Evans and Wayne Moore and tight end Jim Mandich is one of the NFL's best. With their blocking, Csonka has had three straight years of over 1,000 yards rushing and Mercury Morris just missed his second straight 1,000-yard year last season. Warfield and Marlin Briscoe give Shula the balance to keep foes from stacking defenses to stop the run. Quarterback Bob Griese threw for 1,422 yards and 17 touchdowns last year. The defense was the American Conference's stingiest last season and then smothered Cincinnati, Oakland and Minnesota in the playoffs. The defenders once known as the "No-Names" are now celebrities — tackles Bob Heinz and Manny Fernandez, ends Bill Stanfill and Vern Den Herder, linebackers Nick Buoniconti, RIDGEWOOD, N.J. (AP) Jerry Pate has missed six days of classes at the University of Alabama — usually not a smart move for a marketing major. But Pate, a 20-year-old senior from Pensacola, Fla., needn't worry — he did so with the blessing of Alabama's Paul "Bear" Bryant, better known as the Crimson Tide football coach but also the school's athletic director. The 6-foot-l, 165-pound Pate caotured amateur eolf's top prize on Saturday, the U.S. Amateur Golf Championship, defeating John Grace, a 26- year-old realtor from Fort Worth, Tex., 2 and 1 in a scheduled 36-hole match. Expressing no immediate plans to turn professional, Pate said he "owes a lot to my parents and the university. Sure, they want you to play good golf, but they also want you to get an education." While Grace is back in Texas selling commercial and industrial real estate, Pate is back in classes today. He's studying physics and accounting along with marketing — but on Saturday, it was all golf. Pate, a hard-hitting youngster who had trouble with his driver all week over the 6,754 <yard?"par-71 Ridgewbod" Country Club course, scrambled out of difficult situations throughout his match with Grace.
