Phi Phcewent Conrittoe At Augasta Coarse Cause Masters GoH Scores To Skyrocket AUGUSTA. G«. (AP) - The thrtc-min dawn patrol that toun Augusta National in guarded Mcrecy can turn the huh. wide open layout into · nightmare for the world'i best folfen. And since officials of the ctub take (reat pride in Augusta National's reputation as one of golf's toughest challenges, the dawn patrol often gets downright mean during the Masters. The dawn patrol is the Masters' pin-placement committee, and the trio of Augusta National m«mben take their work seriously. Nobody else-- not even club members, curious sports writers or caddies-- is alowed to accompany the patrol on its 11- hole tour at daybreak. The committee decides where the pin should be at each hole, and those decisions can be the difference between a 68 and a 75-- which is now Jack Nicklaus' scores changed from Thursday's opening round to Friday's action. "I think the Masters' people were unhappy with the low scores Thursday and decided to get even." said South Africa's Gary Player describing the pin placements Friday as "the toughest I have ever seen." Player, who said he played as well in the second round as he ever had at the Masters, shot « 70 "and anybody who broke 70 had to have a really hot putter." Nicklaus, the Golden Bear rivals claim was born for the course, said, "I've never seen it tougher." Bruce Devlin, the Australian Torre Trade Proves Valuable To Cardinals As They Take First New Season Victory NEW YORK (AP) - Three year-old Lauren Torre, says her father, is a little actress. "She stayed up waiting for me to come home and told me how much she missed me," said Joe Torre, who hadn't seen his family for a couple of weeks until he arrived in New York Thursday night with the St. Louis Cardinals. Now. he hopes he's on his way toward making the Atlanta Braves miss him. Ramay Blows Asii At Russellville's ( RUSSELLVILLE - For the second time in as many meetings, the Ramay Indians were victorious over the rival Darby Rangers as the Indians took meet honors over seven other junior high teams here yesterday.

'I've had a couple of sub-par year;, and this helps. It's only me day, but I know I can do it. n St. Louis I was pressing a lit- le hit. I just wanted to show I could do something and help the ;am." Torre also has to be thinking about the Braves, whom he left with less than cordial feelings. Torre isn't certain how he ar- roused the ire of Paul Richards, .he Braves' vice president, but ic feels it stemmed from his ac- :ive part in the players' pension dispute with the owners. "The thing that upset me. Torre said, "was that Richards nade those remarks about me. ihat he didn't care if he signed me or not. If you don't feel you're doing a good job. you don't want to be there. And I didn't want to be there. "I respect someone's opinion, but at least he should tell me in private. I read about it in the papers. I asked him if he said it and he said baseball isn't personal with him. It's a business. He said he hoped I would prove him « liar." After Friday's game Torre lias Exhibit A of the proof in hand. He singled in the first inning, ignited a two-run burst with a double in the third, homered in the seventh and scored what proved to be the winning run in the ninth after being walked in tcntionally. He scored by racing all the way around from first on Mike S h a n n o n ' s two-out double against the center field wall. Aggies End Hog Golfers Perfect Winning Streak FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.

Dan Sikes, titd for third at H after a second-round 71, said it was impossible to shoot for the flag. "A lot of the pins were inaccessible," he said. "You just couldn't go for them." Bob Goalby tried for the pin on the 13th, hit ball rolled off and settled between two rocks. The pins during the second round were placed on ridges in the rolling greens, on the edges near sand traps and just above water hazards. Only 16 players broke par in the second round, with Charles Coody's 68 the best of the day. During the opening round, when the pins were in more accessible areas, 23 players were under par and four players shot 68 or better, Casper leading with 66.
