7D --June 9,1974 Sunday Gazette-Mail _ Crwlesfon. West Virginia Player Seeks 2nd Leg Of Golfs Holy Grail Well Shod CHESS Lee Elder, the first black to become eligible to play in the Masters Golf Tournament, looks over the 50 pair of shoes he has in his wardrobe. Watching is his wife, Rose. (AP Wirephoto) By John S. RadOsia (C) New York Times Service This year it's Gary Player's turn. Whenever a strong golfer like Ben Hogan, Sam Snead, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus or Player wins the Masters in April, the speculation immediately swings to his chances of winning the next three elements of the Grand Slam of professional golf, the Holy Grail that no man has yet found. Having won this year's Masters w i t h a handsome 10-under-par 278, Player is now set for the second stage of the slam - the 74th United States Open, which plays from Thursday through next Sunday over the superbly prepared Winged Foot Golf Club at Mamaroneck, N.Y. "If I win the Open and get two legs on the slam, it would really shake everybody up, wouldn't it?" Player asked after a gratifying practice round. In this biggest of golf tournaments, which he won in 1965, the jaunty 37-year-old golfer-rancher from South Africa will have 149 competitors, survivors of a qualifying process that began with 4,000 aspirants. . Player is quite confident. "I'm really enthusiastic about my chances," he said the other day. "I am playing as well, if not better, than at any time in my life, and I have never been more prepared mentally." And Player has a goal. If he can win this Open he will curtail his globe-trotting schedule so that he can spend more time with his family on his ranch near Johannesburg. "Frankly," Player says, "I want this championship so much I can taste it." The sequence of the Grand Slam is the Masters. The United States Open, the British Open in July and the Professional Golfers Association championship in August. Gene Sarazen, Hogan, Nicklaus and Player are the only men who have won all four tournaments, but no one has ever won them all in one year. Hogan came closest in 1953, missing out on the P.G.A. Player found his practice round at Winged Foot last Wednesday a plus in his favor. * * * "I LOVE this course," he said. "It's an old-fashioned style. The greens are relatively small and they're well trapped. The fairways are tight. "In other words, you can't just stand on the tee and bang away. You have to think. You have to know how to place your shots. I have always played my best on this type of course. "But I think my biggest ··*. weapon is incentive. If I win here I will have won four major championships twice around, and I will have two legs up on the o n e - y e a r grand slam." Player's incentive augments the excellent form with which he has been playing lately. In nine events on this year's American pro tour, he has won twice and earned nearly $100,000. So he has to be one of the pre-tournament favorites along with Nicklaus (the winner in 1962, 1967 and 1972); Lee Trevino (1968 and 1971), who has been recapturing his o l d f o r m , a n d d e f e n d i n g champion Johnny Miller, winner of five tournaments this season, not to mention any one of an army of other players who may just catch lightning in a bottle those four days. World Team Play Started on Small Scale By Edward M. Foy Chess teams from 75 countries commenced play in the 21st Chess O y m p i a d last Thursday at the Exhibition Palace on the Riviera at Nice, France. But the beginnings of the world team tournaments were on a m u c h h u m b l e r scale. 50 years ago, 18 teams of 3 players each, representing national chess associations. · competed in the first such' tourney. Czechoslovakia won. Later in that .same year, 1924, the International Chess Federation (the FIDE) was or- · ganized and under its auspices '.· the first "official" Olympiad 1 was played in London in 1927. · for the Hamilton Trussell Trophy. Hungary led 15 other teams, to finish with 40 points, nosing out Denmark by IVfe -. points. ; In all, eight Olympiads were held up to the outbreak of , World War II in 1939, with the USA winning four consecutive I . c h a m p i o n s h i p s : Prague : (1931), Folkstone (1933), War- ·' saw (1935) and Stockholm .' (1937). »··· The Olympiads were re- '· newed in 1950, the 9th being «,,- held in Dubrovnik, with the home team (Yugoslavia) win- ning. The Yugoslavs fielded strong teams in future years, too, but starting with the next team tournament, the 10th Olympiad at Helsinki, 1952, the USSR entered the Olympiads and won No. 10 and then continued to win the next 10 team tournaments, also. THE CHARLESTON CHESS Club held a business meeting last Tuesday evening during their regular weekly session at St. John's Parish House, 1105 Q u a r r i e r St. Among other, business, it was decided to separate the chess ladder from the club tournament, with the first-named event to start in a week or two. Incidentally, there will be a brief meeting this Tuesday, too. Last week-end, the Kings Queens Chess Club ( N i t r o ) championship tournament was held. Twelve players competed in this 4-round Swiss System event, Tim Gillion winning the title with four straight wins. John Kincaid. Edwin Goeller, and Jeanne- marie Homer each scored 3 to 1. Miss Homer played in the recent state J u n i o r H i g h school tourney, winning 5 out of 6 games. BONUS DISCOUNT SALE! ALL CARS AND TRUCKS AT BEFORE-PRICE-INCREASE PRICES!
