(AP)-Dan Sikes plans to start a law career when he is through with golf, but the time when he will make the switch became more remote after he won the Doral Open's $9,000 top prize Sunday in a stretch duel with the veteran Sam Snead. The victory, his first in two years on the tour, won him a spot in the Masters at Augusta, Ga. He had sunk a 6-foot putt on the final hole to win the tournament and keep the hard-pressing 50-year-old Snead from forcing him into an 18-hole playoff. "Was that just a 6-footer?" he asked. "Boy, it looked like 20 feet." Sikes, a 6-foot-l, 170-pounder shot a 2-under-par 70 on his final round for a 72-hole total of 283. The aging Snead, limping on a sore foot, fired a 71 for 284 and second prize money of $4,600. Paul Barney, third round co- leader, and others faded on the last nine holes as Sikes and Snead fought it out down to the wire. Professional golf's big names, Arnold Palmer 290, and Gary Player, 293, were stymied by the tight 7,028-yard course and tricky winds. The 32-year-old Sikes actually won on the 10th when he curved a drive around the corner of a lake, dropped an 8 iron shot 15 feet from the pin and sank his putt for an eagle mat put him three strokes ahead. Sikes, who captained the University of Florida golf team in 1951 and won the Army championship in 1955 and the National Public Links tournament in 1958, has a law degree from Florida.
