WDAY, MARCH I!, 1966 T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N 31 Nicklaus' Golf Dips, Zarley Leads Doral MIAMI, Fla. --(B-- Big Jack Nicklaus has been so used to shooting birds in South Africa that he's almost forgotten how to bag birdies, but he's not losing any sleep over it. "I'll be ready for the Masters," the .210-pound Columbus, Ohio, slugger said today as he started the second round of the $100,000 Doral Open Golf Tournament 12 strokes back of Kermit arley, the young dark-horse leader from Yakima, Wash. Zarley, 24-year-old college champion while attending the University of Houston,, took the lead yesterday with a seven-under-par 65, equalling the tournament record set by Doug Sanders last year. Nicklaus was more than 100 names back with aa un-Nicklaus-like 77. "So what?" Nicklaus said with a shrug of his shoulders. "Golf isn't my whole life. I enjoyed the trip to South Africa. I'll get my game back." Nicklaus, the leading money winner the last two years, also is unconcerned that he has spotted his chief rival, Arnold Palmer, $14,412.50 starting the 1966 season. That's what Palmer has FourWUdcat Netters Set For Tourney Two members of the University of Arizona varsity tennis team and two freshmen will take part hi the Arizona Closed Tournament to be held at the Encanto courts in Phoenix tomorrow and Sunday.

SAN FRANCISCO - UPI -- The Lucky International golf tournament lost $5,780 this year because of bad weather but the sponsors say they'll try it again in 1967. John J. Keane, tournament chairman, 1 blamed a rain-out in the third round of play for preventing the tournament from at least breaking, even. But eane said General Brewing Corp., sponsors of the PGA event, "considers the 1966 Lucky a success and . we currently are negotiating a contract with the professional golfers association for 1967 dates." Ken Venturi of San Frandisco won this year's Lucky. RACING Enjoy the lickety-split action of greyhound racing. 11-Race program Wed. thru Sun. 8 P.M. Admission 500, Clubhouse 500 extra.

"I'm not competing with any- K)dy for money winning honors," Nicklaus said. Jack's rustiness was evident n the opening round of the Doral -- his first tournament since he Crosby in late January. He returned Wednesday from South Africa where he spent six weeks playing golf, hunting and fishing with Gary Player. "YOU MIGHT say I haven't )layed any golf since the Cros- jy," Nicklaus added. "I played on strange courses with different grasses. I used the small ball. It's almost a different game. "Surprisingly, I drove well lere. I just didn't have any finesse. I kept hitting wedge shots into the traps. But I'll play Orlando and Jacksonville, skip Greensboro and go to Augusta for a week of practice. I'll be ready." ,., Nicklaus;is defending champion and a two-time winner in the Wasters, but he will face a de- Brmined Palmer who has won four times -- every even year since 1958. Palmer, with a victory, two seconds and a third on the winter tour, rallied Thursday after two bogeys and shot a 69 -- with an eagle at the eighth -to remain in the running. ZARLEY, WHO canned eight )irdies and bogeyed only one lole, had a one-stroke lead over Tommy Jacobs and putting whiz Jay Dolan, tied at 66; three strokes on Johnny Pott, Jack McGowan and Gordon Jones, Bracketed at 68, and four on Palmer, Phil Rodgers and Ken Still. \ Defending champion Doug Sanders and Tony Lema were tied at 74.

Caballeros Headed For Fine Spring Last of a series on the city's high'school track and field prospects. By SCOTT MOSS Flowing Wells Correspondent Seven returning starters set the stage for what could be Flowing Wells' most productive baseball season. The only question mark will be pitching. "If we can just get some boys to pitching good ball we should be tough," says baseball Coach Dick Griesser. RIGHT-HANDER John Cirelli and southpaw Ken McDonald, a pair of seniors, will probably handle the hurling chores. Both saw limited pitching action last year. McDonald started at first and Cirelli at shortstop last year. Other returning starters include catcher Don McMurtrey, second baseman Bill Donatelli, third baseman Chuck Holben, outfielders Ed Weaver and Del Morgan. The Caballeros' track program should also be fairly strong with some 12 lettermen returning. HEADING THE list of returnees are sprinters Dave Anderson (10.4) and Jerry Black (54.4), shot putter Clark Spencer (42-0), pole vaulter David Milligan (10-6) and distance men Lee Mike Gardner, Andy Hansen, Hugh Lemen and Jan Meneley. Coach Ray Claridge also has three promising spikers in Snowf.:'.t t r a n s f e r Matt Abrams, a 10.2 100-yard dash runner; frosh miler Frank Galvez (5:05) and soph pole vaulter Herb Sudduth (10-6).

Last Chance Spurs Russell By Associated Press Cazzie Russell, Michigan's college basketball player of the year, starts tonight on the road he hopes will reach his one remaining goal in the college sport. He never has played on a national championship team and this is his last chance. The two-time All-America has sparked Michigan to three straight Big Ten titles. He leads the Wolverines against dangerous Western Kentucky, the Ohio Valley Conference champs, in the Mideast regkmals at Iowa City, Iowa. The NCAA championship tournament enters its second round with eight games at four regional sites. MEANTIME, THE NIT opened in New York Thursday night with Temple beating Virginia Tech 88-73 and NYU edging De Paul 68-65. Southern Illinois and Kentucky Wesleyan reached the final of the NCAA small college tourney while Central State of Ohio, the defending champion, was eliminated in the quarterfinals of .the NAIA. In his sophomore year, Russell led Michigan to a third place finish in the NCAA and to second place behind UCLA last season. Another natch upwards this year and Russell will reach his goal. The 6-foot-5 senior from Chicago was highly praised by Johnny Oldham, coach of the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers. "We have looked at 270 minutes of films on Russell and agree that he can do everything with a basketball except to autograph it. I never saw a better basketball player. We have a tremendous job trying to defense him." THE NATIONALLY top-ranked Kentucky Wildcats battle the Dayton Flyers in the first game of the Mideast regionals at Iowa City.
