«D -June 9.1974 Sunday Gazette-Mail Charleston, VY?st Virginia Mrs. Helena Evans and Dr. Jack Shamblin, both of South Charleston, will defend their titles in the Kanawha Valley golf tournaments during the next two weeks. The Kanawha Valley Women's Golf Tournament will begin Monday morning at Meadowbrook. The ladies will move to Kanawha Country Club Tuesday, take Wednesday off, then go to Berry Hills Thursday before winding up Friday at Sleepy Hollow. This is the second year that the ladies are playing 72 holes over four different courses. Mrs. Evans, who shot a 77 in the final round at Kanawha last year to win with a 331 total, likes the stroke play format. ' "I love stroke play much better than match play," Mrs. Evans said. "It is the way the pros play. It makes you work on your game and get your score down. In match play, if you have a bad hole, you don't care about your score." Mrs. Evans said she is ready to defend her title. "My woods have been giving me some trouble. But I went out and worked on it and I think I've got it figured out," commented "Teen." Two former champions, Cathy Payne and Marie Hall, have entered. Some of the other woman golfers include Jeri Long, Janice Volosin, Jeannene Francis, Dorothy Kaemmerer, Mary Ellen Coleman, Brenda Thayer, Betty Jo Giudice, Isabelle Hedge, Glo Anderson and tournament chairman Lou Ella Carr. The list of K. V. women's golf champions since 1966 follows: 1966, Nell Carpenter; 1967 Betty Dean; 1968, Priscilla Payne; 1969, Cathy Payne; 1970, Betty Dean; 1971 Lissa Mohler; 1972 Marie Hall; and 1973, Helena Evans. * * -Some Changes in KVGA Men's Tourney '. - '. The Kanawha Valley Golf Assn. tournament for men, which ; 'will be held next week (June 17-21), has some changes. For inst- - lance, the Edgewood Country Club course has been taken into the '. -rotation. "We have five clubs and we will skip one each year. 'Meadowbrook will sit out this time," commented KVGA secre- ; -tary Jim Chatfield. ; - * The KVGA men's tournament will open Monday, June 17, at 'Edgewood, move to Sleepy Hollow June 18, shift to Kanawha June 20 and wind up at Berry Hills June 21. In another change, the third flight has been dropped, leaving only two flights. There are 32 golfers with handicaps of eight or under in the championship flight and 40 golfers with handicaps of nine and above hi the first flight. Dr. Shamblin carded a 298 total last year to beat John Spence by two shots and Harold Payne by four shots. All three are entered again. The veteran Spence, who won in 1970 and 1971, will keep alive his streak of playing in the KVGA every year since 1948. Another former champion in the field is Tom Mollencop. The youthful Payne, who led the Marshall University golf team this spring with a 76.7 average, has the lowest handicap of zero (even par). Bill Holder and Buzz Curtis are next with handicaps of one. Bob Thaxton, Pug Lowery, Frank Pava, Dick Rhodes and Jim Passero all have handicaps of two. HELENA EVANS DR. JACK SHAMBLIN Will Defend Women's Title Defending Men's Champion There are three father-son combinations entered, Chatfield pointed out. They are Dr. Shamblin and his father Jack Shamblin Sr., Harold Payne and his father Raymond Payne, and George Washington High graduate Tom Steindler and his father Dave Steindler. The list of KVGA champions in the stroke play format are: 1966, Dick Young; 1967, Kenny Bowen; 1968, Tom Mollencop; 1969, Toby Lawson; 1970, John Spence; 1971, John Spence; 1972, Bob Hunter; and 1973, Dr. Jack Shamblin. * * * Field Almost Full for State Amateur The field is almost full for the West Virginia Amateur Championship at White Sulphur Springs July 4-7, tourney director Fred Burns said. "Anybody interested in playing had better get their entries in by Wednesday or they will be out of luck," Burns remarked. The U. S. Open starts Thursday at the Winged Foot club near New York City? Guess who shares the Winged Foot course record of 67? That's right, Sam Snead. The slammer and Bob Rosburg both shot 67 in the third round of the 1959 U. S. Open there. Snead had rounds of 73, 72, 67 and 75 for a 287 total to tie for eighth with Ben Hogan. They finished five shots behind 1959 champion Bill Casper, who had 282. Now 62, Snead will be playing in the Open once again this week along with fellow West Virginians Bill Campbell of Huntington and Barney Thompson of Barboursville. It will be Bill's 14th Open and Barneu's second. Marshall University golf coach Joe Feaganes has only one scholarship to give this year and he has signed Scott Davis of Triadelphia High. However, Eddie Williams, the outstanding black golfer at Scott High of Madison, is also planning to attend Marshall but on a work study grant. "I would have to work after school, which would keep me from playing golf," Williams said. Paul McKnight, who shot an 82 for state champion Parkersburg in the State High School Tournament at Guyan last Monday, is going to play for Sleepy Hollow in the boys' inter-club matches starting Wednesday at Sandy Brae. McKnight lived at Scott Depot before moving to Parkersburg. "My father kept his membership at Sleepy Hollow," Paul said. Scott Gilmore, who shot a 77 for Parkersburg in the schoolboy tourney, is the son of Maxine Gilmore, one of the best women, golfers in the state. "When my game is off, I just ask Mom, 'Let's go out and play nine holes,' and she always straightens me out," commented Scott, who is only a sophomore.
