S - Monday, July 1, 1963 Red/onds Daily Facts Pressure packed -Finish Palmer, Lema, Aaron Playoff for $22,000 CLEVELAND (UPI) - Tony Lema, who sank a pressure putt; Arnold Palmer, who missed one, end Tommy Aaron, who birdied tour holes in a row, met todav In a playoff for the S22,000 first place money in the Cleveland Open golf tournament. In the closest and most pressure-packed tournament in PGA history, they tied for first place with 11-under-par totals of 273 Sunday over the sun-baked and heat-seared Beechmont Country Club course. There were actually 12 players in contention in the fourth round, but one by one they fell by the wayside until Lema and Palmer, who led most of the way, charged to the wire to tie Aaron. The 26-year-old Aaron, who just a week ago finished last in the U.S. Open after shooting a third- round 91. was sitting in the clubhouse after shooting birdies on the final four holes when Palmer and Lema, playing in the fina! threesome, teed off for the final three holes. They were 11 under par, the figure at which Aaron, atoning for his sorry open showing, had finished. Both Par Uth It didn't look too good for Aaron after both parred the 16th, because the 17th and 18th are relatively easy birdie holes. For Lema, it looked like curtains on the par-four 17th when his approach shot buried in a sand trap. But he blasted out to within 10 feet of the pin and sank what he called "a real money putt" to stay in contention. Palmer, meanwhile, parred the hole, so they teed off for the final hole, needing pars to tie Aaron and birdies to beat him. Playing with them was Jackie Burke, just one stroke off the pace. Burke hit the rough with his drive, put his second on the green of the par-four 38S-yard hole, 12 feet from the pin. Lema, in the fairway, went to the fringe of the green. Palmer, who outdrove them all, flipped his second shot 10 feet from the cup. Lema PuM$ First Lema putted first and went two feet past the hole. He tapped it ui, tying him with Aaron. Then Burke, with a chance to tie, rimmed the cup and was out of it That left it up to Palmer, golf's "money bags." His putt went on the high side and missed. So, for the third time in three weeks, he found himself in a playoff. Last week, he lost to Julius Boros in the U.S. Open; the week before, he had beaten Paul Harney on the first e.xtra hole of a sudden death affair for the $25,000 first-place money in the Thunderbird at Rye, N.V.

"When he hit it, I thought it was going in," said Lema. "I was just hoping I'd be in the playoff today." said Aaron, who seemed to be the happiest of them all. Boros Is Next Also happy, or at least he claimed he was, was Boros, who had finished an hour before the last group with a 10-under- par 274. "I'm just too tired for another playoff," said Boros. "I just want to go home and rest." As it was, that gave Boros $4,316 as he tied for fourth place with Burke and Sammy Snead. They were one stroke off the pace at 274. birdied the last hole for a 275 to pick up $3,450. Behind him at 276 came Gary Player, former Masters champion Art Wall and Don January, all at 276.
