WEDNESDAY, JULY 8, 195S m,YTHEVTT,T,E (ARK.V COURIER NEWS PAGE SEVEN Bold Burkemo's Goal Was Ryder Cup Team By HUGH FULLERTO.V, JR. BIRMINGHAM, Mich. (AP) Wally Burkemo, the new Professional Golfers Association champion, is a 34-year-old ex-sergeant whose most noticeable characteristics are a shock of unruly blond hair and an upright swing. He has. in addition, a tempera- 'mental approach to the game that is ideal for the PGA match play tournament. And this week he had burning desire to win a place on the Ryder Cup team after PGA officials decided the 1S53 winner trip. "The Ryder Cup was my ultimate aim. I think all golfers desire to play on that team more than anything else," Burkemo said only a few minutes after he had struggled to a 2 to 1 final victory would qualify automatically for the over Felice Torza. the little "Tiger" Arkansas Sporteffes Bowden Wyatt: For An End, Sleepless Nights By CARL BELL LITTLE ROCK (AP) — There's an old football axiom that must not be making Bo\Vden Wyatt's sleep any more restful these hot summer nights. off-season. Last summer he held down a Little Rock brink job that was pretty soft — for the muscles. Experts long have said that a football team is never stronger than its ends. And Mr. Wyatt, as you know, is vhead football coach at the University of Arkansas, where, when ends are mentioned, they talk about the past,— not the future. Wingmen like Wear Schoonover, Jimmy Ben- A major crisis arose recently at Arkansas War Memorial Stadium, where the Razorbacks play their Little Rock games and other state colleges do considerable head knocking.

"Bold" is the word his fellow golf pros use most often in talking' about Burkemo's game. He's a deci.sive hitter who picks the right club for the distance he has to go and wallops with a full swing. That's what helps him when he gets behind. He really bears down then and gets the most out of every shot. That frequently-mentioned boldness cropped up at just the right time in yesterday's 36-hole final match, just as it had all through the week. Torza, the stubborn "chiller" who had cooled off one "hot" golfer after another, matched him almost stroke for stroke during the morning round over the 6,465-yard, par 36-35--71 Birmingham Country Club course. Wally way content to stay clows to par then as a strong, gusty wind proved troublesome on many holes. "I figured the way that wind was blowing, I wouldn't be badly off around par and I might be a couple up." But at the start ol the afternoon 18. Burkemo cut loose. He shot birdies on the first two holes, going for the pins with his approaches rolling his putts into the cups. MR. LUCKY — Movie actor Cameron Mitchell polishes up the putter he used to sink a 576-foot hole in one, longest recorded "putt" in history, off the 15th tee of Los Angeles' Riviera Golf Club course, and prepares to ship it to President D wight D Eisenhower as a gift.

That leaves one known, probable starting end — Floyd Sagely, the basketballer with sticky fingers that make for good pass receiving and a fiery competitor who has proved his defensive ability as a linebacker but not as a wingman. How about that other end? And what about reserves? Pass Mr. Wyatt the sleeping pills, please. dallas grass cropped up ' Stadium, threatening to smother out the bermuda and take the field.
