Nicklaus Fires 76 Amid British Gale ST. ANDREWS, Scotland (AP) —Jack Nicklaus sank a 30-foot putt on the 18th green for a birdie bat still finished with a four-over-par 76 today, five strokes behind the leader in the first round of the British Open Golf Tournament played in gale winds. Deane Beaman, former British and current U.S. Amateur champion, had an 82. Other scores soared in the gale that was so strong that Nicklaus, the big Ohio Golden Bear, said: "It kept blowing me over." Beaman said he found it hard to stand up in the wind. Nicklaus three putted the ninth, 12th and 14th, and had to make a beautiful shot out of the bunker at the 17th to save his par there. Earlier, Champagne Tony Lema toured the historic Old Course in a 73, including a 45- foot birdie putt on the last hole. Only two players among the early finishers managed (o break par, Irish veteran Christy O'Connor and Jean Garaildo of France. Both had 71s. Phil Rodgers of La JoIIa.f Calif., the stocky ex-Marine, who lost the title to Bob Charles in a playoff last year, managed a i 74 after a poor start. "I three-putted three greens but otherwise I played fairly well," Rodgers said. ! Lema, winner of three recent titles on the U.S. tour who is playing in Britain for the first time, said of the course: "It's a son of a gun. It's a fight to get your par on any hole." Asked which was the most difficult, Lema said: "The first 18." The San Lcanrire, Calif., play- j er said, however, that he cn- j joyed the par he got at 17—the road hole — when he hit a fine second shot and got down in two putts. "I'll settle for a four on that hole any day," he said. "Give me three more fours on it and that will make me happy." Doug Ford of Yonkcrs, N. Y., shot, a 76, while two other members of the eight-man American contingent soared. Fifty - year- old Johnny Bulla had 78 and Bill Johnston had 77. Both are from Phoenix. Johnston said: "There are some holes out there almost impossible to play in this wind." Gary Player, former British Open winner and big money winner in flip United States, skied to 78 with putter trouble. "I've no excuses he said. I three-putted six of the first 11 holes." Kel Nagle, who beat Arnold Palmer in a playoff for the 1960 title, had troubles, too, and finished with 77. "It blew out there." said Nagle. AMERICAN LEAGUE Won L«t Pef.

The International Lawn Tennis Federation turned down a British proposal for an experimental open at Wimbledon in 1965. The United States was instrumental in killing the idea. There have been reports, however, that the British might move ahead on open tennis in ! defiance of the [LTF. T h i s could not be. immediately confirmed. The British bid, co-sponsored ! by France and strongly opposed i by the United States and Aus-j tralia, failed to obtain the required two-thirds of the votes of 65 delegates representing 43 member countries at the annual ILTF Congress. The United States and Austra-1 lia, leading the o p p o s i t i o n : group, were assisted by West I Germany, plus the Soviet Union ; and other Communist members, i In turning down the idea of i admitting professionals to the j 1965 and 1966 Wimbledon tourna- i ments on a trial basis, the i delegates also took a stronq '' stand against anv open toiirna- Co/fs Purchase Outfielder Hardy HOUSTON (AP) - Carroll Hardy, 31, right-hand hitting outfielder, has been purchased I by the Houston Colts from their i Oklahoma City farm club, General Manager Paul Richards : announced today. ments.

McDonald Pens Contract DALLAS (AP) -Flankerhack Tommy McDonald, formerly with the Philadelphia Eagles, has signed a contract with the Dallas Cowboys after nearly six months negotiating. McDonald's signing with manager Tex Schramm Tuesday, came only 11 days before McDonald was due to report to the Cowboys' training camp at Thousand Oaks, Calif. "I'm very happy that Tommy was able to work out his personal business and problems so he could sign his contract," Schramm said. What McDonald received was not disclosed, but it was believed the Cowboys gave him a better contract than the one they got. in trade from the Eagles ($22,000). McDonald's delay in signing with the Cowboys was believed due to his leaving a reported lucrative sideline with the advertising department of a Philadelphia cigar company. The Dallas contract contains no provisions tor side deals.
