"I didn't know what Moose was doing," January Confessed later. "I was a little upset that I didn't know he was so close." It could have been even closer — a tie or even'defeat for January. On the fina.1 hole Bo ~ faced a 45-foot chip for an three which at that stage wo have tied' him : with playing two holes behind The ball 'died just an inch or so from the hole. Boros got th» birdie which led to a typical Biros understatement. "Another roll of the ball would have gone in," he said simply, No mention that it was- a putt for an eagle and possibly the difference between January's $30,000 and the $18,000 he got for second place. - Young Randy Glover of Fo-, rence, N.C., finished with a 68 for 279 and $12,000, while tha. sentimental favorite of many, Bob Goalby, after a disappointing 75,- tied with Gardnei Dickinson, 69, at 281.
