Northwest Arkansas TIMES, Man., F«b. 19, 1973 Bob Dickson Wins Andy Williams Tournament 10 YEARS AGO THIS MONTH On February 11,1963 Arkansas football coach Frank Broyles presented B i l l y Moore with the Crip Hall Award for the best performance in the Arkansas homecoming game w i t h Baylor. By JAN PR1DDY .ssocUted Press Sports Writer PHILADELPHIA (AP) -'he Philadelphia 76ers. the aughingstock or the National Basketball Association this sea- on, are beginning to make :ven veteran coaches like Red loltzman take notice. "We're a pro basketball team and now we're playing like a ro basketball team," veteran layer and rookie Coach Kevin ^oughery beamed Sunday after his 76ers won their third game SAN DIEGO (AP) -- For several years Bob Dickson had been an object of pily, of concern, of puzzled looks and occasional head-shaking. The bright promise of certain stardom had not been fulfilled. One-third of the time last season he couldn't even get into a tournament. He'd even thought of quitting the pro golf tour. It all ended Sunday when Dickson reached in the cup on the 72nri hole to pluck out the ball that made him a winner for the first time since 1968. "It was, well, it was a kind of animal Joy," said the soft-spoken 29-year-old from Tulsn, Okla., a three-stroke winner in the Andy Williams-San Diego Open Golf Tournament. "It's just the way It was meant to be," said Australian veteran Bruce Crampton, who opened the gates for Dickson ·with a fantastic collapse on the final f i v e holes. Dickson won it with a par 72 for the final round on the sunny Torrey Pines Golf Course, a 7,047-yard layout stretching along rugged cliffs facing the Pacific Ocean. He finished with a 278 total--10 under par. Crampton, a 37-year-old who won both Arizona tournament? this year and was threatening to make the tour his persona] toy, lost one stroke on each ol four consecutive holes down the stretch and could do no bcltor than a fat 76. That dropped Crampton hack Into a four-way tie for seconc at 281. Also at that figure were Phil Ttodgers, veteran lad a 71, Rodgers closed with a 65 and Jones a 75. Tied at 282 were Tommy Jacobs. Miller Barher, Dave Ei- chelbcrger and Hale Irwin. Jacobs had the day's best round, a 65. Barber took a 66, Eichel- iierger 73 and Irwin 72. Jim Johnson To Join Razorback Coaching Staff Jim Johnson, a former Razorback, has joined the U n i v e r sity of Arkansas football coach ing s t a f f , head coach Frank Broyles said Saturday. The 29-year-old Johnson has been a member of the U n i v e r - sity of Oklahoma coaching staff for the past three yoars. He began his coaching career at Louisiana Tech in 1965 and became a defensive line coach at Wichita State in 1967. Johnson assumed the duties as defensive coordinator at Iowa Stale in 1968 and then joined the Oklahoma staff as defensive line coach in 1970. Johnson earned All-Soulhwosl C o n f e r e n c e recognition a s m i d d l e guard on A r k a n s a s ' 1964 unbeaten team and received the Chism Reed Award for out standing senior leadership. Casper and Crier Jones. Casper Tex. He is a native of Port Arthur British Open champ Lee Trevino really never was in it. He had a final 74 f o r 291. Jack N i c k l a u s and Arnold Palmer did not compete. The victory was particularly sweet for the usually articulate Dickson, who couid only mur- m u r : 'I'm still semi-numb." He came on the tour with ·some of the most impressive a m a t e u r credentials ever put together. He swept the amateur championships of America and B r i t a i n in 1967 and was the first man to take them both in the .ame year since the immortal Bobby Jones. He won the Haig Open as a rookie pro and was lagged with a "can't miss" label. Then it all went wrong. He slumped in 1989. By 1970 he was back among the rabbit ranks as a Monday morning qualifier. His game was shot, his length off the t^e was gone, He had troubles with his grip, with his swing. His fellow pros spoke in locker room whispers of his problems. Dickson never complained. Never once. But he did. at one lime, think of giving up the tour. Last year he cnlered 36 tournaments. In 12 of them he didn't qualify. This time it all turned around. "For the f i r s t time i n 4'/z years I f i n n l l y played four rounds of good to better than good golf," he said. The victory was worth $34.000 to Dickson, more than he has won. in any of the three previous seasons. Crampton picked up $11.692. On February 13 the Rice Owls stopped the Razorbacks 69-65 with giant center Kendal Rhine who stood 6-9. Jim Wilson had 19 points ancl free throw shooting ace Tommy Boyer 16.

It's hard playing against (Bill) Walton. Your lay-ins are nil and you just can't beat them by shooting jump shots for 40 minutes."

Seattle was plenty tough for he Celtics, who needed Don Jelson's tip-in in the closing seconds for the victory that enabled them to open a 3%-gam» Atlantic Division lead over the Knicks. Archie Clark, who missed Baltimore's first 43 games while holding out for more money, rounded into shape just in time for the clash with Milwaukee, He hit a season-high 25 points, including two on free Ihrows with five seconds to go after the Bucks had wiped out the Bullets' 10-point lead.
