Y, THURSDAY, JTJIT «, MM, SMITH THREAT IN PGA Chicagoan Changes Style Ot Play to Better His Game Considerably NEW' YORK (ffi) -- Advice to tellers clept.: Don't believe the aged adage that you can't teach an old dog a new trick or two. Take the case of Horton Smith, the blond Chicagoan, who lias been "often a bridesmaid but never a bride" in 12 years of topflight goli, or more simply, a lad who never has won a major golf championship. Worried, he went to Alex Morrison last Spring and they probed Horton's game -- which had been good enough to win the North- South, the Master at Augusta twice, the French open and plenty of others -- to find out why it didn't click when the big blue chips were down. They found out, as a result Horton is one of the real threats of | the current P. G. A. tournament. It's a highly technical change, hard to describe, but its effects are immediately apparent in his play since then -- notably in the National Open in which he was a factor until the...63rd hole, the Massachusetts open and in an exhibition at Oak Park, 111., where his 66 set a competitive course record. /.' '- Today he is pitted against E. J. (Dutch) Harrison, who works for Horton's brother out in Oak Park, 111. Horton entered the 36-hole quarter-final round at the Pomonok C. C., yesterday with a well-turned- out 4 and 2 victory over Clarence Doser, who rudely upset Ralph Guldahl the day before. Harrison got into the select group with a 27-hole victory over Bruce Coltart. Marching along with, but wary of. the mighty Smith in today's lower bracket were Emerick Kocsis, the slugging surprise from Michigan, and open champion Byron Nelson. In the upper sector defending champion Paul Runyan, who celebrated his 31st birthday yesterday by handing young Ben Hogan a 2 and 1 licking meets handsome Dick Metz, and Rod Munday, Runyan's assistant, will have his hands full Pi:ard, the Hershey hurricane. Those'eight are all that are left after as rousing a third round of championship golf as the venerable P. G. A. ever has seen. Par took such a shellacking it's doubtful if it, or the Pomonok members, will recover. Harrison played 27 holes in 99 shots, an average of a bit over 3.5 per hole; Picard had 14 threes on his card in toppling Al Watrous, and even Munday and Kocsis, who hadn't ever figured in major tournaments before, shot a 69 and a 68, respectively.
