Expect Pros To Belt Par At '500' By ED SAINSBURY INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (UP)-A free scoring chas'e was likely today in the opening of one of golf's richest tournaments, the $50,000 "500" Festival Open which will pay the victor $9,000 Sunday. Fifty-two of the 142 pros in today's starting field warmed up on the 6,605-yard, par-71 links in the pro-am Wednesday and more than half had par or better. They were led by course record-holder Billy Casper, who rattled a 65, six under par, but still three strokes behind the competitive mark for the course he set two years ago in the first of these annual tour- nies. Casper was 1 hard pressed by numerous others. Buster Cupit and Paul Harney were only a stroke behind at 66, and four others were at 67 — Dave Ragan, Ken Venturi, .Lionel Hebert and Doug Ford. Ford was the target for the field, : since he has-won both of the previous Speedway events lo pick up $18,000 of tlie total purse of $100,000 over the two years. Today, Ford aimed for his ninth consecutive round of 69 or better in tournament play here. There was little doubt that Casper, second-leading money winner with earnings of $32,208 this year, would make a strong run at Ford. Others who rated as contenders were Venturi, Hebert, Gary Player, Mike' Souchak, Bob Rosburg, and Jerry Barber, who was runner-up to Ford two years ago. Two of the top three 1962 money-winners; front-runner Arnold Palmer and Gene Littler, in third place, were not in the event this year.
