The field for this year's $125,000-added Belmont is expected to include Kentucky Derby winner Cannonade and Preakness winner Little Current. Little Current, owned by John Galbreath, probably will go off as the favorite. He made a big run' in the traffic-troubled Derby that brought him from way back in the 23-horse field to fifth at the finish, beaten less than 6'/z lengths by Cannonade. He then won the Preakness by seven widening lengths over Neapolitan Way, with Cannonade third. Neapolitan Way also is a BeTmbnt probable, although it would cost Elizabeth Thomas $12,000 to start him since he wasn't nominated and would have to be a supplementary entry. Intriguing Probable Perhaps the most intriguing probable is Hatchet Man who has raced only twice. The son of Ax II-Beebopper finished third in a six-furlong debut but then won by 10 lengths in his second start last Friday, rac- .ing one mile in 1:344-5. Hatchet Man is owned by Greentree Stable and trained by John Gaver. the combination that won the 1968 Belmont with Stage Door Johnny. Stage Door Johnny raced four times before winning a IVs-mile allowance race just 23 days before the Belmont. In his f i r s t two r a c e s , Hatchet Man has been ridden by Ron Turcotte, who won the last two Belmonts, on Riva R i d g e a n d S e c r e t a r i a t . The unbeaten George Washington Patriots of Charleston are expected to battle it out with the unbeaten Parkersburg Big Reds for the State High School Golf Tournament title Monday at the Guyan course in Huntington. Parkersburg posted the low team score (298) in regional play last week. The Big Reds' individual standout was Scott Bibbee, who fired a 71 at Clarksburg Country Club. George Washington had a 314 score to lead its regional at Sandy Brae but the Patriots weren't satisfied. "We can do a lot better," said G. W. player Bill Lickert. "But we're hoping we're saving our best score for the state tournament. Last year we wasted it in the regional." The Patriots had the home course advantage in the 1973 state tournament at Kanawha Country Club but settled for a second place tie. This year they admit they don't know much about the Guyan course. "Not a one of our boys has ever played at Guyan," said G. W. golf coach Steve Edwards. "But I imagine some, of them will go down and walk around the course." "We're going to handle the state tournament like a PGA tour event," commented Gordon Eismon, executive secretary of the Secondary' School Activities Commission. '"We're going to play summer rules and have rules personnel on the course, headed by Fred Burns. We'll start at noon Monday with boys going off the first and 10th tees. They are also planning to feed the coaches and all the boys." * * * Williams .Sparks Scott High Team Scott High of Madison qualified for the state golf tournament for the first time in 20 years. Scott was the state champion in 1954. The Skyhawks posted a 23-4 record in match play and finished second to Beckley in the Region Five tournament. Scott's Ed Williams tied for medalist honors in the regional with a fine 74 round on the tough Pipestem State Park course. "Williams has a number of colleges interested in him and is a strong candidate for state medalist," feels Scott golf coach David Radcliff. "Ed has averaged a sizzling 69 in our last three matches." Other members of the Scott team are Jim Brown, Tony Hensley, Frank Smith and Steve Lilly. "The members of Riverview Country Club have gone out of their way to help the team," commented coach Radcliff. "To many golf is a minor sport but in Madison golf is becoming a major sport." * * * Miller to Play in Ptnlly Pro-Am This shapes up as a busy week for Les Miller, a 17-year-old senior at Gauley Bridge High. Les qualified to compete in the state tournament Monday and then he's going to fly to Philadelphia to play in the pro-am preliminary Wednesday before the $150,000 Philadelphia Classic. Miller's uncle, Clyde Goff, lives in Philadelphia and is sponsoring him in the pro-am. In fact, his uncle put him in the 1971 Philadelphia Classic pro-am when Les was only 14 years old. Les played in a foursome with well-known touring pro Lou Graham that time. LICKERT THOMAS VOLOSIN "Graham wasn't playing too well that day but he was super nice to all of us." Les recalled. Les shot a 91 score himself, which is pretty good for a 14-year-old kid playing before a gallery on a pro tour like Whitemarsh Valley. Miller has been playing golf since he was nine years old. A1-; though still a teen-ager, he is the club champion at the Hawk's Nest course near Gauley Bridge.''My best score has been a 72 at Hawk's Nest." Les said. * * * Heck's Open Field Is All Fitted Up If you haven't already entered the Heck's Open, forget it. "We already have 128 golfers and we are filled up," said Jay Thomas, of Heck's. "Our biggest problem is turning down golfers." The Heck's Open is slated June 22-23 at the Riverview course near Madison. Berry Hills pro Joe Taylor and State Amateur champion Bill Campbell will compete Tuesday in the 36-hole U. S. Open sectional qualifier at the Sewickley Heights club near Pittsburgh. Pros Pete Byer and Linden Meade and Huntington amateur Billy Wellman will attempt to qualify at Cincinnati. Sam Snead will compete with many of the touring pros in the open qualifier at Charlotte Monday. Sam, at the ripe old age of 62. still hasn't given hopes of winning an Open. Speaking of the U. S. Open, there is a fine column about Sam Snead and his Open troubles over the years in the June issue of Golf Magazine. In the same issue is a pro pointer from former Beckley player Slugger White, who is now at New Smyrna Beach, Fla. George Volosin is back on the job at Sandy Brae Golf Club after serious gall bladder surgery this spring. George can ride ar-' ound in a cart to check on the course but he can't swing a golf club. "I'm going to ask the doctor in a few days if he'll let me start playing again.'' commented George, who looks good. Pro Quenton Stewart is available to give lessons at John Smiley's driving range off 1-64 near St. Albans. "I used to be at the old Nitro Rock Branch course and worked at Kanawha Country Club but I was gone from here 25 years," said Stewart. "I was at a driving range outside Cleveland for 17 years. I've been in golf for 39 years." he added. Former Huntington sports writer David Kempton. 31. has been named a media official to assist pro golf tour public information director Tom Place. '"Meadowbrook will have 20 golf carts by June 10 in time for our Kanawha Valley Women's Golf Tournament round there," remarked Mrs. Raymond Payne Saturday. "We had heard that some of the ladies weren't signing up because they thought Mea- · dowbrook didn't have enough carts and they didn't want to walk. But we will have enough carts at all four courses," said Mrs. Payne. The women's tournament will open at Meadowbrook June 10 and then move to Kanawha, Berry Hills and Sleepy Hollow. Mrs. Glenn Carr is the tournament chairman. Hudson Nabs Tourney Garnett Hudson of Scott Depot won $150 for finishing first in a 3-6-9 bowling tournament at the Imperial Lanes in Huntington. In a 3-6-9 tourney, a bowler is given free strikes in the third, sixth and ninth frames. Mrs. Hudson had a 836 score with handicap. The event was held in conjunction with the recent State Women's Bowling Tournament.
