SUTTON, Mass. (AP) Dave Stockton hit a young girl with an errant shot and gained a new admirer en route to a $33,000 victory in the $165,000 Massachusetts Golf Classic. "I lucked out,". Stockton ·said Sunday after his one- stroke -victory over Ray Floyd in a pressure-packed finish at Pleasant Valley Country Club. "I got a very good break and it may have been the turning point."' : After "taking the lead with a 14-foot birdie putt on the 60th hole, Stockton hit a five-iron shot which appeared headed for a hazard off the seventh green. The ball struck, a girl, though, and dropped on the fringe, enabling Stockton to hold his par. "The girl, about 10 years old, wasn't hurt," he said. "I holed out and gave her the ball. She followed me around the rest of the way. I saw her several times after that. "You know, that's another good thing about playing near SPORT FANS 1 I BET YOU 99DNT KNOW I I Mike BV Gersmanir; the end in the final round. There are always crowds around the greens. If you hit the ball low and call "fore" softly enough, a bad shot will hit somebody and you can stay out of trouble." Stockton, a former Southern California star who will be 30 in November, was in a joking mood after his first victory since he won the PGA championship one year ago. However, he had to be all business on the course to ward off the challenge by Floyd, Hod F u n s e t h and Bruce Crampton down the stretch of the 72-hole tournament. Stockton, playing with Funseth ahead of Floyd, applied the pressure from the outset, sinking a 12-foot birdie putt to start the final round. He moved into a tie for the lead with a 16-foot birdie putt on the 58th hole and went aheaff to stay on the 60th. He added birdies on the llth, 14th and 15th greens for a sizzling 66 and a total of 13 ·under par 275, breaking Pleas- · ant Valley's tournament record of 276 set by Arnold Palmer in 1968. He had earlier rounds of 69, 71, 71 as he pushed his career earnings over $425,000. J.G.W. U.G.I.Y.P.?
