As a Tournament committee member and in reference to the current split among pros he recalls, "The issues are very much the same today. Even though I served on the committee, I never shared its group philosophy, even as chairman. It never made sense me that the administration of the Tour should be handled by those men playing in the tournaments. It's basically Incorrect. I've never agreed with this sort of thing yet this is historically what the fellows want. They resent anyone with authority telling them what they can or cannot do. It can't be done. The counterparts of those who supervised things before will have to be created, and you'll find again that this authority will be resented." Bobby Jones Speaks Out The PGA has now carried Its fight with the APG Into the Federal Appeals court. Losing out In Federal District Court in Wilmington, Del. in its bid for an Injunction to restrain the APG, It has filed an appeal with the Federal District Court In Philadelphia. It's coming up Nov. 29. The bid of the APG to form Its own tour has had tacit acceptance In some quarters but the golfing public is unhappy about it and what It can do to harm golf. Bobby Jones, the Emperor of Golf back in the 30s, the only amateur ever to win the British and U.S. Opens, the British and U.S. amateur championships in the same year, has some comments on the issues which were released by the United States Golf Association for publication today. Jones says there is little appreciation today that golf Is an amateur game, developed and supported by those who love to play it. "Amateurs have built the great golf courses where the playing professionals play for so much money; amateurs maintain the clubs and public links organizations that provide jobs for working professionals; amateurs spend millions of dollars each year on golf equipment and clothing; and amateurs rule and administer the game on both sides of the Atlantic. In this way, golf has prospered for several centuries. It would appear to be the best possible arrangement. "In the current controversy, the tour players are apparently choosing to regard themselves only as performers whose skills are to be sold to the highest bidder. They have great box office appeal in person and on television, and so earn magnificent Incomes. Even so they feel they can get more money under a different set-up. "That is certainly within the rights of the players, but it would seem they are risking two things: (1) that they may price themselves right out of the market and, (2) they may disrupt the PGA which appears to be the best hope for a permanent ruling body of the professional game. It is difficult to see that anyone Is suffering under the present arrangement. "It is the amateur who supports the game, the tour and professional golfers. There is no indication the tour players have any great concern for the multitude ... It may be the tour players can go their way and leaving the teaching pros go theirs, but I very much doubt It. It would be much better if they could find shelter under one roof." Shuttered Clubs Are Reopening.
