Palmer qualified for the 575,000 World Series of Goli when he j smacked down Phil Rodgers and Jacky Cupit Tuesday in a three- man playoff. Palmer shot a one- under-par 69 over the Firestone Country Club's ".IBS-yard course, which played unusually long because of receni rains. Rodgers and Cupit simply bowed to (he course, as neiiher carded a birdie. Rodgers had a 37-37--7-1 a/id Cupit 3S-3S--76. while Palmer came in with 34-35, nailing two birdies and straying from par only once. I Palmer will defend his American Golf Classic, title beginning Thursday, and the N'o. 1 challenger will be Nicklaus. The 550,000 Classic has drawn a field of 92 and including some of the country's lop amateurs. First place is worth $9,000. and there is an ad- diiional $15,000 in bonuses.
