"Maybe we're all just getting too old," the big hitter from Columbus. Ohio, said today when asked why many of the name players were being shoved aside by a breed of new young golfers early in this 1969 pro tour season. Big Jack was reminded he was still a baby at 29. "I don't mean necessarily in age, but I have been playing golf a long time," he said. "I lave been playing tournament ?olf since I was 10 years old. That is « long time to tee up the jail for competition." Nicklaus was offended a few years ago by those who said he had reached his peak because he had been playing tournament golf for such a long time. At the time, Snead said a man could only go into big time competition so many times before burning himself out. "I don't think this is happening to me," Jack said in talking about a slump that has plagued him during the spring tourna ments on the tour. "I am still eager. I still want to win. I work as hard as I ever did. "But because 1 work so hard I do find that I get nettled and sore at myself when I make a bad shot. And that just esca lates my troubles. Three or four years ago, I never let things like that bother me." Nicklaus flew into Dayton for a preview of the 6,910-yard, par 71 NCR Country Club course, where the PGA championship will be played Aug. 14-17, and found himself confronted with questions slump. about his golfing i! | winner as a senior at Wesleyan |,I. .. . ______ . *:,,:,.!,,,. 1 1 rtl, ',* SMALL MAN IN BIG FIELD Yosliinki.
