BRITISH AMATIUR GOLF 41 Americans KO'd By TOM REEDY CARNOUSTIE, Scotland (AP) —Two Scots, a Frenchman and a South African played today for the 1966 British Amateur Golf championship and the question arose: what has happened to the Americans? + * * The trophy, first put up In 1881, once practically belonged to Americans, going back to the days of Bobby Jones and then on to Willie Turnesa, Frank Stranaban, Dick Chapman and Harvie Ward. But the last American to win it was Dick Davies of Pasadena Calif., and that was back In Lights Out! And then the light* went out. Randall Company was leading Courier Newa 2-1 in the bottom of the fourth on the Randall lot in the YMCA league last night when a .power failure halted tha action. Courier Newi players deny sabotage. The game has been rescheduled for Wednesday night. W2. Forty-one Americans entered this time and fell one by one to Carnoustie's 7,959-yard par 71 course. The victims included 50- year-old Bill Hyndman of Phila delphia and Bill Campbell, Huntington, W.Va., who was a British finalist in 1954. Campbell may have part «f file answer. He observed: "When our youngsters are any good, they turn professional. The rewards are very high." There may be something in that. The American contingent this time was studded with veterans ranging in age up to Hyndman's 50 and Truman Council's 49. These veterans are a sort of club which has grown up over the years. They keep coming back for their own pleasure, but that is not what wins major golf championships.
