6G CORPUS CHR1STI TIMES, Wed., Aug. 18, 1971 Jack Seeks Money Lead PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Jack Nicklaus will be gunning for the top spot on the year's money winning list and possibly an all time record nigh for a single season in the 5150,000 Philadelphia G o l f Classic. The 72-hole test gets under way T h u r s d a y on the 6.708-yard, par-72 Whitemarsh Valley Country Club course wi!h Nicklaus the only one of the top five money winners in the 147-man field. Nicklaus, winner of the PGA championship and three other tiles this season, has won §194,813 in only 14 starts this season and trails Lee Trevino by only ?2,406. If the records are any indication, Nicklaus is almost certain to pass Super Max Trevino, who is recovering from an emergency appendectomy in New Mexico. Nicklaus, idle last week and a late arrival here, has averaged $13,201 a start this sea- son and has been fourth or better nine times, a performance-level that is matched only by the idle Trevino. And, too, he could break his own single-season money winning record of $211,556 by finishing second ($17,100) or pulling down the $30,000 first- place prize. He's favored to do just that, what with Trevino, No. 3 money winner Arnold Palmer, No. 4 Gary Player and No. 5 Miller Barber all among the missing. Palmer is taking a week off, Player is home in South Africa and Barber is competing in Europe. Gene Littler, a two- time winner this season and No. 8 on the money list, also is taking time off. Nicklaus' chief competition is expected to come from defending champion Billy Casper, the 1970 Piayer of the Year who has had some difficulties this season. AGUIRRE RALLIES Warren Whacks Decision Willie Warren and Alfonso Aguirre showed plenty, of courage, but an impressive first five rounds by Warren won him an unanimous decision in the main event on the Coastal Bend Promotions, Inc. boxing card at Memorial Coliseum last night. Warren cut Aguirre severely and nearly knocked him out in the fifth but the San Antonio resident came back to hold Warren almost even in the last five rounds, displaying remarkable bravery. In the other ten rounder, popular local favorite Calvin Todd wore down Jesse Leija The Day By Th* Associated Press PITCHING - Claude Osteen, Dodgers,hurled a three- hitter for his I2th victory as Los Angeles defeated the New York Mets 4-0.

The eight round opener saw Sam Torres of San Antonio win by a TKO over Corpus Christi's Robert Perez with knockdowns in both the third and fourth rounds. The fourth round knockdown nearly sent the local boxer out of the ring and the fight was called after 43 seconds. Amateur winners in preliminaries were Joe Lopez of the Boys Club over Ray Hodriquez of AAA Boxing Club by unanimous decision; Victor Jones of the Salvation Army over Frank Franco, AAA, by unanimous decision; Alex Garza, AAA, by TKO over Henry Moore, Salvation Army and Tony Franco, AAA, over Ernie Gallegos, Boys Club, on a split decision.

MEXICO CITY (AP) - Muhammad Ali left Mexico City for New York Tuesday after a one-day visit during which he said he discussed the possibili- % of a fight here against Jerry Quarry Oct. 5. Alt also said that a rematch here against Joe Frazier next year was a possibility. The f o r m e r heavyweight champion told newsmen at the airport that he would fly to Caracas, Venezuela later this week. Jftajor boxing matches rarely are. held in the capital itself because the price of tickets is controlled by law and is so low that promoters cannot ' make a profit on the fights. In the past fights have been held in.the state of Mexico, adjacent to Mexico City, in a bull ring which has been under reconstruction for many months.
