Jack Nicklaus said a birdie putt on the ninth hole, a twisting 30-footer that jumped in the cup like a rabbit going in its burrow, was the key to his 2 and 1 victory over Frank Beard yesterday in the rich U.S. Professional Match Play Golf Championship.

Smith, who played a key role as the Colts led the National Football League in defense last year, was injured in the final quarter of Saturday's 16-13 exhibition victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Tampa, Fla. While running interference after teammate Rick Volk intercepted a Pittsburgh and double sculls were beaten in qualifying heats but get a second chance in the repechage, a qualifying trial for losers. Generally, it was a big opening day for the Yanks. Louis Self, a featherweight from Toledo, Ohio, won his first boxing bout. Three freestyle wrestlers pinned their opponents and Sergion Gonzales of Hawthorne, Calif., gained a draw with world champion Ibraham Jouadeour of Iran in the 105.5-pound class. Micki King, an Air .Force captain and Olympic veteran, placed second to Urika Knape and Agneta Heuriksson, both of Sweden, after three compulsory dives in the ladies' three-meter springboard diving event, to be decided tonight. Super heavyweight loses Cathy Rigby, 19-year-old Wizard, was impressive in the opening routines of the women's gymnastics competition, although the Soviet Union leaped to first place among the teams, with the United States fifth. In boxing, Self, 21, a former Golden Gloves champion, was very impressive. In beating Maurice Apeang, a Frenchman from Tahiti, he dropped his foe with a left hook in the first round, bloodied his nose in the second and went on to a unanimous decision. Russia's two-time gold medal winner, Alex Medved, edged America's 400-pound super heavyweight hopeful, Chris Taylor, as Olympic freestyle wrestling got under way. Outweighed by more than one hundred pounds by the 22-year-old Iowa State junior, Medved, 34, won by one point on a take down after dancing away from Taylor most of the match. pounds and sets a world record during Graham running, upset-minded Beard and the Golden Bear closed him out when Beard bogeyed the 17th hole to go two down with one hole to play. The victory, his sixth of the season, was worth $40,000 to Nicklaus and pushed his money winnings for the season to a fantastic record total of $280,482.16, acquired in only 16 events on the American tour. "It's different," he said of the match play format which started with only 16 men in the field. "You've only got four matches to get through and somebody is going to do it. golf scores Jim Wlechers 77-49-72-77390 620 Joe Carr 74-71-69-74 290 629 Bobby Cole 72-72-74-72-290 629 Ed Moehling 70-74-70-76-290 629 Ralph Baker 71-73-74-72-290 629 Ken Fulton 72-71-72-75-290 679 Steve Melnyk ... 70-74-72-75291 520 Gary Groh 70-75-72-74-291 520 Richard Karl 65-81-74-71291 520 Jim Jewell 72-71-71-78292 363 Tommy Aaron 73-70-73-76292 363 Bob Charles 70-76-71-75-292 363 Tom Shaw 72-74-72-74292 363 Bob Smith 73-71-74-74-292 363 Dick Croawford 74-70-74-78 292 363 David Glenz .72-71-76-73-292 363 Dale Douglass 72-74-76-70292 363 Richard Bassett 73-73-76-70 292 363 Dave Eichelberger .....71-70-76-76-293 220 Ron Cerrudo 71-76-71-75-293 220 George Knudson 73-73-77-70293 270 Dave Hill . .- 73-74-69-78-294 143 Ken Ellsworth 76-70-71-77-294 143 Jack Ewing . : 74-71-74-75-294 143 Billy Zlobro 73-71-75-75-294 143 Chuck Thorpt 68-76-75-75294 1 43 Mike Wynn 71-73-76-74-294 1 43 Gay Brewer 77-70-74.73294 1 43 x-Graham won In playoff. pass, Smith crashed into a first-down marker on the sidelines.

If you're not playing so well, you just hope you can get by with it. That's what happened to me in the first round. "I shot something like 73 but still won when I didn't play all that well. The rest of the time I played reasonable well, then couldn't get it going on the first eight holes of the finals." Nicklaus had eliminated Don Bies 2 and 1 and Beard took Babe Hiskey 1 up in the morning semifinals. In the medal play, Lou Graham of nashville, Tenn., survived a four-man, three-hole sudden-death playoff to take the $20,00 Ofirst prize. The medal event, a regular stroke play tournament, was billed as a companion piece to the match play and was competed on the same 6,988-yard course in the Carolina Sandhills. The 34-year-old Graham finished the regulation 72 holes with a score of 285-three under par and was tied with Hale Irwin, Larry Ziegler and Australian rookie David Graham. David Graham and Ziegler dropped out with bogeys on the first extra hole and Lou won it when Irwin put one in the water on the third playoff hole. Lou Graham had a final round 70, Irwin matched par 72 while Ziegler and David Graham had 73s. Nicklaus, easily the dominant figure in the game, had to work hard for his triumph over Beard, who has been in a slump all season. for season caused all the damage to Smith's knee, but team films of the game failed to show any unusual twisting of the leg that may have contributed to the injury. "I bellowed," Smith said, "I don't know exactly what happened, but it felt like someone was taking a huge mallet and driving a wedge into my leg." Smith, a veteran of five years in the NFL, was sent back to Baltimore for the operation, which was performed yesterday afternoon at Union Memorial Hospital. He suffered a torn lateral ligament, tendon damage and other injuries. - - i Associated Press talented Hector's By EARL COX Courier-Journal ft Times Executive Sports Editor MUNICH, West Germany Hector's got himself an Olympic basketball team . . . Hector Blondet, that is. Oh, the name of the team officially is Puerto Rico, but no one who saw last night's 81-74 victory over West Germany could doubt that Hector was the man in charge. Hector, the former Murray State star, was doing his things, the things he loves best in all the world: Talking and playing basketball. He talked in both English and Spanish, and he played basketball out of this world. More specifically, his passes were out of this world. Time and time again he brought the appreciative crowd roaring to its feet with most unusual passes. To give you an idea: Once he was headr ed for the basket. But wait, there's a guy in his way. What does Hector do? Without stopping, he takes the ball and bounces it between his legs behind him to a teammate. Hector is the team captain. His position is guard, but sometimes he lets someone else bring the ball up the floor. Then he goes to the corner and yells for the ball. He gets it. Only he can see a teammate open under the basket. He threads the ball through eight other people and finds his man wide open for an easy basket. Eight times in the first half Hector was credited with assists and most were spectacular. Hector didn't play much defense "I have this little cold, see." He made his first two shots, then missed the next five, made two more straight and then missed Beard, winner of 11 titles in his 11 seasons on the tour, jumped into the lead immediately when he birdied the opening hole and held it for seven of the next eight holes. Nicklaus, however, ran in a 30-foot birdie putt on the ninth hole to pull even. He went one up with a two-putt birdie on the par five 12th. They halved the next one with pars and the steady Beard rammed in a 40-foot putt for a birdie to win the 14th hole and make the match even again. But Beard bogeyed the next one. He used an iron off the tee and hit it into the rough and was short in two. Nicklaus won with a par to go one up again. The halved the 16th with pars and Beard lost it when he bogeyed the 17th. Associated Prass JACK NICKLAUS lets out a gasp as a long putt drops on the ninth hole in the final round of play at Pinehurst, N.C., where he beat Frank Beard 2 and 1. "l . "S A 66-35 rout U.S. 'Fuzz Kids' chew up Czechs Associated Press MUNICH The youngest Olympic basketball team ever to represent the United States started defense of its gold medal yesterday by walloping Czechoslovakia 66-35. The U.S. team started slowly, but, once gaining its poise, turned the contest into a rout. In one streak in the first half the youthful Yanks scored 16 straight points. Then, after giving up a free throw, they didn't yield a basket for six minutes. Kevin Joyce, a 6-foot-3 guard from the University of South Carolina, came off the bench just before the end of the half and hit on five of seven shots from about 20 feet, giving the Americans a 34-12 lead athalftime. All 12 players saw action with Tom Henderson, a 6-2 guard from San Jacinto Junior College, leading the scoring with 16 points. Dwight Jones, a 6-8 center from the University of Houston, got 15. 1 Iba cites mistakes Hank Iba, the old Oklahoma State coach who came out of retirement to lead the U.S. team into the Olympics for the third time, said the Americans were guilty of some mistakes and letdowns. "They were competitive about 31 per cent of the time," he said. "You must be competitive 37 per cent of the time to win here." Iba said the Americans got the jump early with their tight defense and noted that the Czechs had a hard time with their shooting. But, he added, on offense, "We must get better. There were many errors coming down the floor." The most difficult task, Iba said, "is got a heckuva team his last three finishing with four baskets in 12 tries. He made eight points in all. He also rebounded . . . once. "Hectors a better shooter than that, I'll guarantee you, and he'll prove it," said Gene Bartow, the Memphis State coach, who officially is in charge of the Puerto Rican tsam. "Did Cal Luther teach you to pass like that?" Hector was asked. Luther is the Murray coach. Pointing his finger at a reporter, Hector answered: "It's a gift." Hector was born in Puerto Rico, raised in New York City and has lived in Puerto Rico for the past three years. He attended school at Murray last spring. Earlier, the U.S. won its 56th Olympic basketball game without defeat. Davis lauds EDITOR'S NOTE: Kenny Davis, former star basketball player at Georgetown College, is a member of the United States team that crushed Czechoslovakia 66-35 in its first Olympic competition yesterday. He is writing for The Courier-Journal during the Olympics. By KENNY DAVIS MUNICH, West Germany Defense. That's what did it. We really put the defense to Czechoslovakia in the first 10 minutes. That broke it open. I'll tell you, when you give up just three baskets in an entire first half, as we did, and then just 13 for the game, you aren't going to lose many games. Remember Dwight Jones? Didn't I tell you in Sunday's paper that he was going to be tough? He made six of eight shots and scored 15 points. He's going to be the key to our success. Jim Brewer was really tough on defense and also scored 10 points. Kevin Joyce went in there and got hot, scoring 12 points. Our leading scorer was Tom Henderson with 16. That's good scoring balance. I was surprised that we won so easily. So was John McLendon, the former Kentucky State coach, who is our scout. Coach Hank Iba started Doug Collins and Henderson at guards, Jones at center, and Brewer and Ed Ratleff at forwards.

Czechoslovakian coach Vladimir Heger said he had prepared for a strong American defense, but "I was surprised how strong the defense was today." He was also surprised, he said, by the trouble the Americans had with their offense at times. Doug Collins, a guard from Illinois State, who played a strong defensive game, said, "We felt we had to clamp them off defensively and show them who was boss. After that they had their heads down." The U.S. held a 31-27 edge on the boards, with Jim Brewer pulling down nine rebounds. Jiri Balastik had five for the losers. Cosic sparks Yugoslavia In another game, U.S. student Kresimir Cosic scored 28 points, leading Yugoslavia to a 85-78 triumph over Italy.

"Do you ever think about that record?" U.S. coach Hank Iba was asked following the 66-35 runaway over Czechoslovakia. "I think about it, but I don't talk about it," answered the retired Oklahoma State coach. "I never talk to the men about it, but I don't have to. They've all been to school and can read." What about the players? What do they think about the victory string that began when basketball became an Olympic sport in 1936? Kenny Davis, the Kentuckian who is a member of the U.S. team, answered: "Oh, we've talked about it, but it doesn't bother us. It isn't like when you've won all your games for years in college and you're beginning your senior year with the burden of a long winning streak. "It's been a long time since 1968," said Davis. "We just don't relate to the 1968 team. So the pressure isn't there". U.S. defense next with 9 minutes and 34 seconds left in the first half. I got a quick, easy basket when Burleson tapped the ball to me at midcourt. I went all the way for a left-handed layup. That's a nice way to start the Olympics. In all, I played slightly over six minutes. I missed my only other shot, mssing everything from the corner in the second half. I sort of rushed that one. Way to go, Kenny. Naturally, I'd like more playing time, but so would a lot of other guys. The important thing is that we won. Here's what coach Iba told us: "You men played good defense. The offense was not pleasing and we must get better. The turnovers bothered me. We made too many errors. We can't continue to play this way." Coach said it is understandable that we made errors because we're the youngest and tallest team ever to represent the United States in Olympic competition. Our average age is 20 years, 8 months and I'm the old man of the team at 23. Going into yesterday's game, I had played in 26 international games. The rest of our whole team had played in just 25. Oh, yes. I'm also the shortest on the team at 6-foot-l. Coach said he was sure of three starters when we play Australia today. They are Collins, Ratleff and Jones. He also indicated that Brewer would start, and he isn't sure about his fifth starter. scoreboard 1.1O0; 5. Rvszard Wach, Poland, 1,100; . Gilbert 7,?led,a52; Mexico, 1,090; 7.
