Great Contractor moved up on the turn to challenge Bold Forbes as Best Laid Plans, who has been second most of the way, faded. Then McKenzie Bridge sailed down the middle of the stretch to pass Great Contractor and just missed getting Bold Forbes. The time for the IVi miles was 2:29 flat as Bold Forbes cut out fractions of 234-5 for the quarter, 47 for the half, 1:11 for the three quarters and 2:014-5 for the mile and a quarter. The three-quarter time was a full two seconds slower than in the Preakness, when Bold Forbes burned himself out and fell prey to t h e s t r e t c h r u n s o f Elocutionist and Play the Red.

Siderowf a two-time winner ST. ANDREWS, Scotland (AP) -Dick Siderowf, a 38-year-old stockbroker from Westport, Conn., sank a six-foot putt at the 37th hole--the first sudden-death hole--Saturday and edged John Davies of England to become only the third two- time American winner of the British Amateur Golf Championship. After seven hours of cut-and-thrust match play in this prestigious 91-year-oid event, the two men finished the scheduled 36 holes level and the marathon contest went to sudden death. At the 37th hole. Siderowf, who had not been putting well, found his touch and sank one from six feet. Davies, needing a four-foot putt to stay alive, missed. "It was just about the first good putt I had made all day," Siderowf said. "Neither of us played well on the second 18 holes. ! guess it was a combination of tension and fatigue. "The worst thing about this championship is not to win it," Siderowf added as he clutched the big silver trophy. "I'm sorry for John Davies. Ths pressure is so great on an occasion like this. "There is so much that goes with winning, and so little that goes wiUYlosing." Siderowf, who previously won the title in 1973, joined Lawson Little, 1934-35, and Frank Stranahan, 1948-50, as American two-time champions here. fVCC signs trio Flathead Valley Community College coaches Mike Persna and Neil Eliason have announced the signing of three female athletes from Montana.
