Ht holtd out this trap shot in (rent ef Ihi 11th grt«n at Augusta lor i U and tht 1(57 Masters championship. By HUGH FULLERTON JR. ATLANTA, Ga. OP -- Exultant Doug Ford called his final shot with the 1957 Masters Golf Tournament "The greatest shot I ever played." Later he decided that another great wallop on the 15th hole at Augusta National was the deciding factor in his victory and the final blast that holed out on the ISth creen was just window dressing for a fine round. But what window dressing. Ford was three strokes off Sam Snead's pace when he started the last round on a sunny, almost- windless afternoon on the sprawling 6,%Oy«rd Augusta National course. Four others were ahead of him and most of the players felt that with conditions so favorable one of the four would post a score too low for Ford to catcb up. But it was Doug who caught fire and, as word spread of his Cubs Keep Trying succession of birdies on the back nine, he began to pick up a large part of the huge Masters gal '·Vs. 1 lery.

"I didn't want to hit it too bard because I was afraid of going way up on the back of the green," Ford explains. "I hit up on the ball and it went way up in the air and dropped in the sand." The ball appeared half buried and the hole couldn't be seen. But Ford didn't hestitate an instant, lie strode into the trap, took his itance, waggled his club once and hit the bal!. It was what Ford described as a wedge run shot For an instant it appeared the ball wouldn't clear ihe bank of the green, but it did hopped a couple of times ant rolled toward the hole 30 fee away. The crowd began to shou as the ball neared the pin and the shout became a shrill scream as the ball dropped into the hol for a birdie three. That gave Ford a siiunderpa 66 for the round and a 72-hol score of 283. Snead, who had been leading the tournament with ony riine holes to go, was on the 13th when hi heard an incorrect report Fort Fifihts i couple of bogies acd decided gamble on beating that total, am pramptly knocked one Into file's Creek and took I bogey sit n a hole where it's easy for him 0 get birdies.
