Austin, Texas Page 03 Sunday, Sept. 3, 1972 Austin Amrrtran-tatfHman i J-J GOLF JkW N0TES By Chuck Clark Man and the Mountain If massive enthusiasm could move mountains, as it were, then Terry Dill'.s Lost Creek Golf Course would have been built, groomed and manicured and open for play last July 1 as advertised. But. alas, the mountain Terry faced out in west Austin was named Reality. And Reality doesn't budge much, even under the driviand pressure and enthusiasm of an irrepressible Terry Dill. Consequently, there has been a delay in the opening of this newest golfing pasture. Some pf the immovable realities that have blocked the opening of LoStjCjeek, Dill pointed out last week, were (a) rain when he didnt want it; (b) pumps that wouldn't work without electricity; (c) n3?rigation system that wouldn't irrigate with pumps without Electricity; and (d) greens and fairways that wouldn't grow grass without irrigation. Even so, Dill is undaunted and work goes apace. On last week's tour jof the beautiful valley, Terry chose to look on the brighter side,; happily pointing out fairways covered with grass, greens sprouting ;green bent grass, a sprinkler system working in apple pie order and a sumptious clubhouse mushrooming to completion. '. "Naturally," says Dill, "we were disappointed about all the delajsbtit some things you just can't foresee. But it's coming along nof; and when it's finished, it'll be the finest course around. .;Hema:be right. Lost Creek, nestled in the valley of Barton Creek near the intersection of Bee Cave Road and Loop 360, is really beginning to look like a golf course. From the top of the Surrounding cliffs, it's a sight to behold, -i And Terry is anxious to show it off. This coming Saturday, at J 30 p.m.; bill and co-pro Bill Garrett have invited members and those whe might want to become members to a picnic on the bank of tree-shaded Barton Creek, a golf clinic and a tour of the course. A "progress report." As to "when do we play," Dill says he's confident the clubhouse will be completed shortly after Christmas, and the course will be cpeii for pay on March 1. :" "We'll make it," says Dill. "I know we will." 2; - " Z Trial gotf meeting . . . A 'reporton the golf meeting held last Thursday (not Monday) at "HicHland Mall, sponsored by the Austin Golf Association; .' 'Soml50 interested golfers (a record attendance for such a eatherlnfS attended and heard from Mayor pro tern Dan Love, new Citv MananerDan Davidson. Parks and Recreation Director Beverly Sheffield and city golf administrator Ronald Armstrong. Site r- possible sites for new golf courses were discussed: Decker Lake is being given top priority for a new 18-holer; Walnut Creek (out near Coxville Zoo) has been surveyed and found to be unsuitable due to terrain; City Park property (out by Lake Austin) doesn't have enough top soil, and the expense of hauling in soil would be prohibitive; Camp Mabry area is just too small. But the search goes on for other sites. Old Muny: Love reported that if the University of Texas regents' "intent" has been interpreted properly, the city may retain use of Muny for another three years UT's takeover is predicated on when the City obtains another golf facility, which mav take another three to five years. Some thought is being given by the City Recreation Task Force to making the golf program a separate, self-supporting department. If the Task Force should come up with such nroDOsal. Love is prepared to support it before the Council. Green fees. Sheffield reports an increase is being considered to offset rising maintenance costs and to help meet salary increase for employes. Maybe up four bits. ' What can golfers do to help the situation? Mr. Love and Mr, Davidson: Support the Capital Improvements Program bond issue to be voted on th' Saturday -'and support and give direction to your own golf association and the Task Force. That sounds fair enough. "I At a business meeting after this session, the AGA voted to support the CIP program and to do what it can to encourage - present city officials in their efforts to improve city golf facilities Members of the Task Force reported later strong inclination to : propose a "separate, self-supporting" golf department in the City administration. , Keep your fingers crossed. Opinion .... A vote for the CIP is a vote for golf. Ave. Giles Destined To Win Title CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) fell behind on the third hole of felt I was destined to win this tournament," said a happy and relieved Vinny Giles after he finally nailed down the elu sive U.S. Amateur Golf Championship Saturday. He had ended years of frus tration minutes earlier by shooting a one-over-par 72 for a 285 total and a three-shot edge over Ben Crenshaw, the pre tournament favorite, and Mark Hayes. Giles, a 29-year-old, red-hair ed, freckled, investment banker from Richmond, Va., had led the tournament by one shot after 36 and 54 holes. But it ap peared he once more might be disappointed when he lost his lead on the third hole of the fl round and trailed Hayes by two shots with 11 holes left. Giles said that because he had finished second three times a row and was third once, some people naa iota nun ne must be thinking negatively about it. But it was just the oppo site," he said. "I was thinking positively all week. I never felt like I played a safe shot or a dumb shot today. I just played my game all week. I had lots of confidence. It was my best tournament of the year." He pointed to the eighth and 13th as key holes. On the eighth, he picked up a shot on Hayes with a 10-foot putt for a par. On No. 13 he hit a No. 4; iron four feet from the hole for a birdie three and a two-stroke pickup as Hayes bogeyed. "I spent 45 minutes hitting long irons after Friday's round and the practice paid off on that hole," he said. He led this year by one stroke after 36 and 5;4 holes, but round and trailed two strokes with 11 the final Hayes by holes left. But Giles drew even on the 10th, then birdied three nf four holes starting at No. 13 to re gain the lead. Giles had rounds of 73-68-72-72 for his trips around the sunbaked 6,811-yard, par 71, Charlotte Country Club course. Marty West of Washington, D.C., finished with 72 for fourth place at 289, one stroke ahead of Atlanta veteran Charlie Har rison, who finished with a 71. Immediately after the tournament ended, the U.S. Golf Association selected Giles, Crenshaw, Hayes and West to the team that will compete for the World Amateur Cup next month at Buenos Aires, Argentina. Danny Edwards of Edmond, Okla., and Jim McLean of Seattle were named as alternates. Giles, looking back on his round, said, "I played my best golf of the week from tee to green, but didn t cash in my many birdie chances on the front nine. In all, I think I played a solid round of golf." 1", 1 I f .A i : 1 (' it v- j YANKS Lundell Cops Penick Golf Advantage Lester Lundell shot a two-under par 68 to take the first round lead of the championship flite in the annual Harvey Penick Invitation Golf Tournament at the Austin Country Club Saturday.

The East Germans dominated the 2,000 meter course on the nian-made lake, winning three gold medals, one silver and three bronze to match the performance of German rowers in the 1936 Games at Berlin. However, the East Germans were denied tne crown in me blue-ribbon eights, where a crew of New zeaianaers, wno sold lottery tickets to finance their trip, won over the American eight with the East Germans third. The New Zealanders led after the first 500 meters and, stroked by Tony Hurt, won in the good time of 6:08.94. Stroked by Lawrence Terry of Concord, Mass., one of the six Harvard men aboard, the Americans put up a good fight but couldn't make it, finishing in 6:11.94. The only other U.S. reprcsen tatives in the finals were the coxed fours, which finished fifth behind a West German crew, and Jim Dietz, the 6-foot-6 single sculler from New York, a distant fifth back of Russia's Yuri Malishev, who upset the favored Alberto Demiddi of Argentina. In shooting, Wigger tied Boris Melnik of Russia with a score of 1,155 of a possible 1,200. But the major won the medal because of a better score in his final series. Trevind, Beman Lead Hartford WETHERSFIELD, (AP) Lee Trevino the final hole of the second: round to finish with a 68 and tie Deane Beman for the lead in the $125,000 Greater Hartford Open Golf Tournament Saturday. Trevino, with a 36-hole total of 10-under-par 132, was one- stroke off the pace after Fri day's opening round. He fired four birdies Saturday after starting off with a bogey on the first hole. "If today's round is my worst of the tournament, then I have an excellent chance to win," Trevino said. Beman, teeing off early Sat urday, waited in the clubhouse to see if his second-round 66 would be good enough to give him possession of first place going into Sunday's round on the par 71, 6,583-yard course Lee Elder, tied with Trevino behind leader Bert Yancey after the first round, finished the wrong club all day," Yancey said, added he was fooled from time to time by the tri-ckey crosswinds.

ATLANTA (AP) - Bobby Howfield, an English-import, s o c c e r-style place kicker booted three field goals as the New York Jets beat the Atlanta Falcons 9-3 in a National Foot ball League exhibition game Saturday. Howfield's first field goal of 12 yards came late in the sec ond quarter after another Jet kicker, Grant Guthrie, missed two attempts. Howfield connected on kicks of 29 and 32 yards in the fourth period. Atlanta's only score came on Bill Bell's 20-yard field goal in the third quarter. FOREST HILLS, N.Y. (AP) English giant killer Mark Cox stunningly upset second- seeded Ken Rosewall 1-6, 6-3, 7-6, 7-6 Saturday in second-round play of the U.S. Open Tennis Championships. The 29-year-old Cox, who got the label upset-maker in 1968 when he became the first ama teur to beat a pro in an open event, took command against the 38-year-old Rosewall in the second set. Cox broke Rosewall's service in the eighth game when tne Aussie veteran double-faulted at game point and later netted an easy volley. The curly-haired, 29-year-old Cox held service in the next game in the set and then sur prised the packed house at the West Side Tennis Club by win ning tie-breakers in the next two sets. It was easily the biggest up set in the first four days of play in the championship that Rose wall won in 1970. Rosewall was the picture of dismay and frustration, often looking to the gray, leaden skies as if seeking help. He once pounded his fist on the rain-slicked grass after missing a shot, several times batting balls angrily away after Cox had scored a point. "I just couldn't get enough serves back into play," the disgusted Rosewall said. "I also had a little trouble with my footing," said Rose wall, who took at least four spills in the two-hour match, once just lying there in a sprawl and pounding his fist on the grass, his teeth bared in an angry grimace. "My serve was the turning point," said Cox, a ranking player in Great Britain but un seeded in this tournament. Rosewall was seeded just be hind defending titleholder and Wimbledon king Stan Smith who did not play Saturday. Roger Taylor, another upset- minded Briton, took fourth seeded Hie Nastase of Romania to a tie-breaker in the fifth set before bowing 7-5, 6-2, 6-7, 2-6, 7-6. After the first two sets, Nastase lost his blazing fast serve and had to rely on brilliant play to stay in the match. Taylor meanwhile grew stronger. After taking the third set tie-breaker 5-3, he closed out the fourth set by winning five straight games, breaking Nastase, last week's Eastern Grass Courts winner, twice en-route. In the fifth set, both players held and Nastase took the tiebreaker 5-1, closing out play with a overhead slam and a backhand slam. Still another seeded player, No. 10 Manuel Orantes of Spain, was extended to the lim it before putting away Jonny Parun of New Zealand, 6-1, 3-6, 3-6, 7-5, 6-4. The third set of the Rosewall-Cox match follow ed service through the first 12 games, but Cox built a quick 4- 1 lead in the tie-breaker and took it at 5-3 when Rosewall's return was out. That gave him 2-1 lead in sets and the fourth followed service through li) games. Rosewall broke him in the 11th game, Cox netting a backhand, but the stocky, sturdy English man broke back in the next one to send it to a tie-breaker. Cox again built a lead of 4-2, but Rosewall won the next two points, pulling even with a service ace. Cox nailed it down with a backhand that Rosewall couldn't handle. The rest went generally ac cording to form and all other seeded players in singles action advanced. Evonne Goolagong, the sec ond ranked woman's player from Australia, took coun trywoman Karen Krantzke 6-3, 7-5; pretty Chris Evert of Fort Lauderdale, the No. 3 swept past ;SIarila Redonddf .of National City," Calif., 6-1, and No. 7 Francoise Durr";f France beat Kristy Pigeon', Danville, Calif., 6-7, 6-1, -4.j Australian John Newcomlje, the No. 5 men's seed, elym; nated Eddie Dibbs of Miam jS? 3, 6-4, 6-3; Tom Okker of the Netherlands, ; the No. 7 seed. made quick -work of Harold Salomon of Silver Springs, MS., 6-1, 6-2, 6-2;Hwt No. 9 Marfy Riessen, Evanston, III., had to work hard foa-3, 7-5, 6-7,;7-5 decision over -Mai Anderson of Australia. - DANCING" AT THE BACKDOOR 500 Comal " . 478-0483 Dave aV Sun Resendex September 3rd: FRANK NUNEZ And The Imperials September 4th: DUETO CARTA BLANCKA Y SU CONJUNTO Georg and Margie f?S0IDW SERVICE M Most Jobs While You Wait! j Kf" ALIGNMENT' III u ? mm ALL?
