(AP Wirephoto) Nicklaus Captures Westchester Title HARRISON, N.Y. (AP) -The glory dream of golf's Grand Slam is gone--at least for this season--but Jack Nicklaus is flirting now with a new goal: $300,000 in winnings for a single season. "It would be great lo win $300,000," Nicklaus said aHer pushing his winnings to $240,000 Sunday with his victory in. Ihe rich Westchesler Golf Classic, "but I just don't know if I'll be able to play enough to do it." "You always want to try to better yourself," said Nicklaus, who won a record $244,000 last year, "and I'd particularly like to to it this season for one reason: I feel that I'm a better golfer this year than I ever have been before in my life." The record would back him up. In only 15 starts on the American tour this year the Golden Bear has won five--the Masters, U.S. Open, Bing Crosby Pro-am and Doral-Eastern prior to the Weslchester--lost in a playoff for the title in the Tournament of ' Champions, failed by a stroke .in the Jackie Gleason and tied for second at New Orleans. And, of course, he lost by a single stroke in the British Open.. He's averaging $16,028 per starl in the United States. His record of $244,000 seems certain to go. But ?300,000 could he difficult. "I'd have to win at least one m o r e , ' m a y b e two, to do it,' Nicklaus said. "I'd like lo, bu I really don't know it I'll play enough." Nicklaus won the Westcheste. with almost casual ease, for glng B. beautifully-played four undcr-par 68 in Ihe final round on the Westchester Country 31ub course. The 18-under-pa total, of 270 was the best on Ihe tour this season. He was never headed in th hot and muggy final round ani won by three strokes over Jim Colbert, who had a hole-in-on and an eagle three en roule t a 65 and 273. Dwight Nevil, the soft-spokei former Dallas fireman who wa the surprise, of the tournamenl held on. with a 71 and thin place at 275. He later donate $2,000 from his 'purge of $17,75 to a Newburgh, N.Y., hospital. Arnold Palmer, who score his last individual triumph i this one a year ago, didn't qua ify for the final two rounds British Open champ Lee Tre vino didn't compete. South Afr can Gary Player, the PGA tille holder, .closed his regula American schedule with a 7. r 285 and was far back. In 2-1 And 8-3 Decisions Phillies, Expos Split Twifibill By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Steve Carllon was once again all but untouchable--and it's getting to look the same for the Pittsburgh Pirates. Carlton, Philadelphia's veteran' left-hander who has been baffling the rest of the National League for Ihe past 2% months, did it again Sunday, stopping Montreal on just three bits for his 19th yiclory of the baseball season and 14th in a row as the Phillies won the opener o'f their doubleheader 2-1. The Expos rebounded to take Ihe second game. 8-3. The Pirates, meanwhile, silenced by St. .Louis' Rick Wise 2-0 in their opener,'got. back in the groove in the nightcap by beating the Cardinals 7-5. In National League a c t i o n , San Francisco edged Houston 4-3, the Chicago Cubs whipped the New York Mets 7-4 and Los Angeles defeated San Diego 5-3. · "I didn't have good stuff and I couldn't gel the slider over," Carlton said after raising his record lo 19-6, best in the league, and fanned eight Expos to raise his strikeout total lo 240, best hi the majors. "I was lucky to get away with it. "I'm not thinking aboul records or strikeouts," lie added when reminded that he's Pabst Classic Winner Marilyn Smith of Siawnrf, Snmlny of llio Classic.

"I want .the win," Carlton said. "Those other things take care o f - themselves." The Phils took care of him with a pair of first-inning runs, coming on Willie Montancz' double and Greg Luzinski's single. Carlton lost his no-hit and shutout bid In the fourth on Bob Bailey's home run. Montreal pushed, across four runs in the fourth inning and three more in the ninth lo gain the split, saddling Billy Champion wilh his 10th straight defeat. Balor Moore and reliever Mike Marshall teamed for a four-hilter for the Expos. "They're going to be tough lo catch," St. Lous Manager Ed Schoendienst said of the Pirates. "They've got loo much on the club. Of course, it's possible," he added, "but they've been playing well without Robera Clemente and he'll be back one of Ihese days. They're 28 games over .500 and you've got to figure the odds are with them." Sieve Blass, who needed last- out relief help to record his 13lh victory in (he second tf.ime. added: "It's a good Itiing lo be able to look forward to Clemenle coming hack and having ns leading by eight, nine or 10 games." And Sues Manager Bill Virclon chipped in with: "Of course, you can't replace Clemenle--but we're not k i l l i n g ourselves playing some of Iheso olher guys who are hil- InR .3.10 or .3'IO." The Pirales fell behind 4-0 in the third inning bill, as Virclon put it, "they did a hell of a job coming back, They didn't quil." They scored three runs in the f o u r t h inning, two of them on Mill May's double, then scored four more in Ihc sixth, Al Oliver and Richie llcbncr each doubling for one run and Bob Robertson singling for two more. Wise, who came lo Ihe Cards in the deal lhat sent Carlfon to Philadelphia, lossed a five-hitter to win Ihe opener, "I don't make comparisons between Carlton ami myself," he said. "Sports writers keep bringing it up, but it doesn't concern me, I Just want lo win for Ihe Cardinals." The Reds, opening their West Division lead over Houston to 5V4 gamos, got two runs batted in nplece from Pole Rose and Cesar Geronimo nmi .took nd- vnnliifjc of 11 walk* lo heal the Hrnvcs, Rookie Jim WUloughby of the Slants, recently recalled from Phoenix of the Pacific Coast League, scattered five hits to beat the Astros. It was his second victory, each of them coming on a Sunday against Houston. "Yeah, I've got something going." he quipped. "But 1 really don't know. The only two games I've pitched were on Sunday." Handy Hundley hit his fifth home run and Ron Santo drove in runs with a sacrifice fly and a bases-loaded walk to lead the Cubs past the Mels, who gol homers from Tommie Agee anc Willie Mays. The victory pullec the Cubs within a game of second-place New York in the East. Willie Davis belted his llth and 12th homers, the latter a three-run shot in the eighth in ning, to power the Dodgers pasi the Padres.
