He doesn'1 believe in leaving a S20.000 check lying carelessly, around the house and because baseball usually puts him to sleep, anyway. Nicklaus, the pudgy. 25-year- old son of a Columbus. Ohio, druggist, says money no longer is so important to him and you could honestly make' the same statement if you raked in almost half a million bucks as he has since becoming a golf professional .four years ago. "There's no question I play golf more now for the accomplishment than, for the money." said Nicklaus shortly after he cracked Ben Hogan's record total with his own 271 Sunday. Winning It Secondary. "I don't even know what I won jiere," he shrugged because up to that time no one had told him. Informed it was $20,000, Nicklaus didn't even blink his baby blue eyes but continued talking about how much pride he felt in his accomplishment. "I don't care if they didn't pay a penny for winning this toumtunent Tbc gold medel He meant the S20.000. . of course, and the way he played the tough, 6,980-yard Augusta National course during the four days of the' Masters no one was ever more entitled to the money.

He confessed Sunday he wasn't even sure at the time that he. deserved the traditional green jacket which annually goes to the winner. "I had a funny feeling the Erst time I won here," he said. "Oh. I knew I had the lowest score all right • but it wasn't so much as a result of my own playing as it was some of the others faltering. This one was different. In this one.I had control of the ball all the way." Nicklaus could say that again because after the second round which ended with Arnold Palmer, Gary Player and he" being tied for tite lead it was strictly, no contest.' Palmer, perhaps, put it best of all when he said, "I have never seen anyone shoot fouf belter round* «f «oif." , BOSTON—The Boston Celtics took i a 3-2 edge over Philadelphia in their be.sf-of-seven Easl- ern Division till beating the 76ers 114-10S.
