Nicklaus Shoots Poor Round on Memphis Course By KELSO STURGEON Associated Press Sports Writer MEMPHIS, Term. (AP) — There is little Jack Nicklaus hai not done in his four yean as a professional golfer, but he's finally run into a course that gives him nightmares. "I hope I'm getting all this out of my system today," Nicklaus said as he shot a miserable round in the pro-am of the $60,000 Memphis Open Wednesday. "There is just no reason for this, ' he said after he missed one of many two-foot putts. "I've seen beginners play better than this." Despite the round and the fact that he's never played well on the short, par 70 Colonial Country Club course, Nicklaus was installed the favorite to take the $9,000 first-place money. In the pro-am, Nicklaus shot a 43 on the par 34 front nine but was two-under par with a M on the par 36 backside. A field of 144 was set to tee otf today in the Memphis Open. The 6,466-yard course has whipped Nicklaus both times he's played in the Memphis Open. He finished llth in 1963 and tied for 12th in 1964. Also attracting a lot of attention Wednesday was defending champion Mike Souchak and young Bill Martindale, who finished in a tie for second Sunday in the $100,000 New Orleans Open. Another man who will bear watching is the New Orleans winner, Dick Mayer, who at 41 has started a sensational comeback after sitting on the sidelines for seven years. led by Lawrence Levra as he!
