By ROBERT JONES AP Sports Writer CARNOUST1E, Scotland (AP) - One hundred and fifty of the world's top golfers teed off for the 104th British Open Championship today. And 149 of them were praying that Britain's five-week drought would end, the rain would fall and Carnoustie's iron-hard course would soften up. The odd man out was Jack Nicklaus, the biggest hitter in the modern game. He has been burning up the 7,065-yard, par- 72 courss in practice and, over the past two days, has turned in a phenomenal 24-under-par 264 for four rounds. He'd be more than happy if things stayed as they are, with the fairways hard and the greens true -- and his power game allowed its head. After his earlier burst of big hitting, which included a couple of seven under par 65s, Nicklaus took things easier Tuesday and merely tried out a few practice holes. "I'm a bit surprised to find a course this fast and with no rough," he said later. "But I've never yet seen a British Open when the weather conditions didn't play a big part in the scoring. We're getting to real Carnoustie weather now - -with an east wind getting up. I'd be surprised if Ben Hogan's 282 record (in 1953) gets broken -but there again, it depends on the weather. "You might get 10 under -you might get 20 over." Thirty American golfers were to tee off today starting at 2:20 a.m., EOT. Nicklaus, scheduled to start at 9:45 a.m., was the man to beat in the chase for the $16,500 top prize. Twice a British Open winner -- in 1966 and 1970 -and four times a runnerup, he was undeniably the hot favorite, rated by Britain's legal bookmakers at 7-2 to win a third. But the weather forecast was for some rain, which would slow the course and leave things wide open for a field that included last year's champion, South African Gary Player, who won last time the Open was played here seven years ago; 'U.S. Open champion Lou Graham; 1973 British Open winner Tom Weiskopf, and Lee Trevino, who won the British Open in 1971-72.

Mahan is third in the standings now with $17,335. The two richest rodeos over the Fourth were the Greeley Independence Stampede and the St. Paul, Ore., rodeo, which ended Sunday. The Greeley contest ended on the Fourth. Biggest winners at Greeley were J. D. Yates of Pueblo, Colo., and Mike Pyeatt of Lamar, Colo., who took first in team roping with a total time of 14.2 seconds on two steers. Each won $2,176.

Austin, Tex., 52,092. NEW YORK (AP) - When Ray Volpe takes over as commissioner of the Ladies' Professional Golf Association on July 21, he will face problems that are older than some of the players. "What they're complaining about now is not much different than when I started the tour," said Fred Corcoran, who founded the LPGA in 1948 with six players and a $3,500 tournament. "They wanted more tournaments, more money and they didn't want to socialize." "Babe would," he said of Babe Zaharias. "She'd go anyplace. Babe had all the color. She was the Pele of golf. Without her, we wouldn't have had a tour." Corcoran, who has stayed close to the LPGA scene since he gave up the tour in 1960, said he thought the women .were doing very well but they need a star, a Billie Jean King of golf. "That Baugh girl has potential," he said of Laura Baugh, bally-hooed two years ago as the best-looking, most-talented pro since the Bauer sister. But she hasn't won yet. You gotta win. Carol Mann is colorful, too." Miss Mann, who recorded her 35th tour victory earlier this season, is the go-get-'em president of the LPGA who was the power behind firing E.M. "Bud" Eriekson as executive director and hiring Volpe, the LPGA's first commissioner. Volpe, a mod-looktog, smooth-talking 36-year-old former Madison Avenue ad-man who spent the last 3% years dreaming up promotions for the National Hockey League, was named head of the LPGA on Tuesday. With the new man comes the new title of commissioner, new headquarters in New York and new power. "We found that 'executive director' means about as much as rolling a guy out of a closet "We want people to know that we have a strong man who has as much authority as commissioners in other professional sports." As for moving their offices from Atlanta to New York, Miss Mann said: "We feel we need to be in the media and marketing capital of the world." She also is confident that Volpe, who has a three-year contract, can resolve the other LPGA issues at hand. Despite promises of total authority, he has a tough job. As Miss Mann described it, his mission is. to "improve the recognition, credibility, dignity and integrity of pro golf. Women's golf, starting at the junior level, has gotten a rotten deal...," despite the fact that Eriekson, in five years, built the tour purses from $530,000 to $1.8 million. Lou Brock of the St. Louis Cardinals stole four bases in and giving him a trophy," the one game against the San outspoken Miss Mann said. Francisco Giants last season. Thompson to sign Sunday We helped this business increase business. SHELBY, N.C.I AP) -David Thompson of North Carolina State, the college basketball player of the year, says it was his quest for a' degree, rather than any wish to win a second national championship, which prompted him to return for his final year of college play rather than turn pro immediately. He reportedly turned down a $2 million offer from the Philadelphia 76ers of the National Basketball Association last summer. But now the 6-foot-4 Thompson has decided to sign with Denver of the American Basketball Association instead of the NBA. Thompson, who was the No. 1 draft choice of the Atlanta Hawks, will be a millionaire before he turns 21 this Sunday. "It has always been my major goal to graduate," he said in an inteview this week. "I wanted to prove that you can be a student as well as an athlete. I remember some people were critical of Charlie Scott Forbes trial to MINNEAPOLIS, Minn.
