Arnold himself reused to say anything about it. at :he time, but a friend later let :he cat out of the bag, saying that the growth hampered Palmer's walking and swinging. There was a report that he had undergone a secret operation during the course of the tournament. This proved to be false. "It's true I have a cyst and it gave" me some trouble," Palmer said when pressed on the matter. "I saw a doctor there but there was no operation. I thought about pulling out, but decided against it." This .was in deference to the tournament chairman, S. M. Bingham.

An operation, if nee- issary,' would be a minor one and apparently would not interfere measurably with Palmer's golf plans. · "Mainly, I just felt lousy," Palmer said. "I have been in the habit of. taking time off from golf during the fall -- from September until late December. But I haven't done tliis for the last four or five years. I've been too busy. , "The result is I've picked up some bad golfing habits.·' I'm not hitting the ball well at aU. These are some bugs in my game I must get rid of."

Ten years ago Drobny was considered one of the world's greatest amateurs. He won the Wimbledon tournament in 1954. Since then, he says, the quality of the amateur tennis field has dropped considerably. "But there is a valid reason for this, he said. "AU the best amateurs have turned professional before players were really ready to replace them in the amateur field . A tennis player needs five to eight years to reach his peak. The young amateurs of today are iust prospects. As soon as they reach their peak, they will be lured into the professional camp." Who are the best amateurs today?
