Absent: Robyn Hamb State Open or Closed? Some Kanawha Valley golfers think the West Virginia Open golf tournament should be renamed the West Virginia Closed. Harold Harris of St. Albans and several other players at the Big Bend course near St. Albans sent their entries in recently for the West Virginia Open, scheduled for Sept. 12-14 at the Canaan Valley State Park course in Tucker County. They got a form letter back from Canaan Valley golf pro Carl Kreyenbuhl saying that their entries could not be accepted because their club (Big Bend) did not belong to the West Virginia Open Assn. The letter said the golfers could play if Big Bend joined the WVOA for a fee ($50 for 18-hole courses and $35 for nine-hole courses.) However, the checks which the golfers sent in with their entry forms were not returned. Harris, who said he never had any trouble entering State Open tournaments before, was irked by the refusal and wrote back to Kreyenbuhl: "I wonder how you can call your tournament the West Virginia Open. It should be called the West Virginia Closed. "There are five or six people from our club (Big Bend) who had planned to participate in the so-called West Virginia Open. "I can't understand how you can turn down $175 or more in favor of $50 membership in your WVOA. It seems to me that instead of encouraging golf in West Virginia, you are discouraging it. "You, the pros, are the ones to benefit in the long run but without amateurs, I believe your pot will be empty," Harris wrote. This writer agrees with Harris. This is one of the big things that is wrong with golf in the state. You can't play in such-a- such tournament because you don't belong to such-a-such group. You can't play in the Kanawha Valley Golf Assn. tournament unless you belong to a local country club. You can't play in the West Virginia Amateur unless you are a member of a club belonging to the West Virginia Golf Assn. And now you can't play in the West Virginia Open unless your club belongs to the West Virginia Open Assn. State golf pros started the West Virginia Open Assn. this year in a bit of anger against the amateur-run West Virginia Golf Assn. The pros were irked for two reasons. 1) Some of their members could not play in the State Amateur because their clubs did not belong to the W.Va. Golf Assn. and {2) the pros were sick and tired of having to put on the State Open every year with absolutely no help from W.Va. Golf Assn. amateur officials. So I can sympathize with the state pros to a certain extent. But I think they are wrong in this instance. All they are going to do is cause added bitterness among state golfers and unjustly keep out some amateur players who have no control over whether their clubs join an organization or not. Don "Moon''' Mullins of St. Albans brings up another point. "Since Canaan Valley is a state-owned golf course, how can the park officials restrict any citizen from playing in a State tournament there?" Mullins asks. I don't know. But I do know the game of golf in West Virginia would be a lot better off if all the organizations dropped their restrictions and made their tournaments open to everybody. You don't have to be a club member to play in tennis or Softball tournaments. Why should golf be so much different? 110WVU Grid'ders To Report MORGANTOWN - Vacations, summer jobs and summer classroom work comes to an end today for the West Virginia University Mountaineers football players. The WVU gridders report to their annual preseason camp tonight. Around 110 varsity candidates, including 29 scholarship freshmen, will meet the coaches in the Towers dormitory complex at 8 p.m. The team will undergo physical examinations and check out equipment Monday morning, and hi the afternoon will pose for photographers and chat with the visiting news media. The real work begins on Tuesday as the team will start two-a-day drills without pads for three days. Contact work in full gear begins Friday. "We'll be trying to stress conditioning the first week," says head coach Bobby Bowden. "We'll be finding out who came to play." * * Big Bend Tourney Slated Sept. 20-21 PRACTICE SESSIONS are tentatively scheduled from 9 to 11:30 a.m. on the As- troTurf-covered Mountaineer Field and 3:30 to 6 p.m. on the natural turf of the . Evansdale practice field during the two-a- day drills. During these sessions for the first three days, the veterans will work separately from the freshmen, transfers and "walk-ons." A scrimmage is slated for 2 p.m. Saturday and each Saturday thereafter. Classes begin Wednesday, Aug. 27, so practice will be limited to one afternoon session per day throughout the rest of the fall. Practice sessions after the season begins will be divided between Mountaineer Field and the Evansdale field. WVU will practice on natural grass prior to the California (Sept. 20), Penn State (Oct. 11), Richmond (Nov. 15) and Syracuse (Nov. 22) games. Those four opponents play on natural turf at home. All practice sessions are open to the public. Here's one tournament that is open to any amateur golfer: the Big Bend tournament. It will be held Sept. 20-21 at the Big Bend course at Tornado. A practice round is scheduled Friday, Sept. 19. Big Bend manager Jim Evans has sent out posters to area clubs. The first 168 en- tries will be accepted and the entry fee is $25, Evans said. Frank Pava won last year's Big Bend tournament with a two-round total of 142. Terry Crislip and Kenny Bowen were one stroke back at 143. * * * Oxbow Course in Ohio Is Fun to Play Do you like to play new golf courses? Here's one you might want to try if you are in the p'arkersburg area. The course is the Oxbow Golf and Country Club near Belpre. Ohio. Take the Memorial Bridge across the Ohio River, drive south on U.S. 50 for 4.5 miles and then turn right on Ohio route 339 for 2 miles. I had the chance to play Oxbow last week in company with Gazette editor Harry Hoffmann. Ravenswood News publisher Phil Fourney and St. Marys Oracle publisher Roy Owens. We enjoyed our round and Hoffmann almost had a hole-in-one on 'the 130-yard 13lh hole. The Oxbow course is 6,733 from the back tees and 6,413 yards from the regular men's tees. It has been open since June, 1974. The course has rolling terrain and sits in sort of a bowl, with several lakes and a small stream winding through it. Oxbow pro Gary Blake said they recently held a best-ball tournament there and the winning score was par--which says something for the difficulty of the course. There's an added benefit when you play Oxbow. Owner Ned Tanner has three attractive college-age daughters who like to swim in the golf course ponds in bikinis. It's hard to keep your eye on the ball when they are around. Marcie Louie Beats DuPont For Canadian Tennis Title ' TORONTO (AP) - Marcie Louie of San Francisco defeated Laura Dupont 6-1.4-6. 6- 4 for the women's singles crown in the $130.000 Canadian Open Tennis championships Saturday. The victory was worth $6.000 from the total purse of $30.000. Hie Nastase of Romania recovered from an early tantrum to post a 6-4. 7-6 victory over Phil Dent of Austriia to move into Sunday's men's final against Manuel Orantes of Spain. . Orantes gained the final for the third straight year by defeating countryman -Juan Gisbert 64. 6-2. Miss Louie totally dominated the first set. but Miss Dupont. of Charlotte. N.C.. took up the challenge in the second before once again failing in the third. Nastase exhibited several tempera- ^ T mental outbursts on questionable line- calls. He was called four times for foot faults in the first set by one linesman, who subsequently was replaced at Nastase's request. After the official was replaced, the Romanian regained his composure, seemed to put his game back together and broke Dent's serve in the 10th game to go one set up. There were five service breaks in the first set. three of them by Nastase. Nastase raced to a 3-0 lead in the second set, but Dent fought back and broke service three times, tying the set at 5-5. Both held service, and Nastase won the tie-breaker 7-4. Orantes had little trouble with his doubles partner in advancing to the final, which carries a first prize of $16,000. Hampton's T.D. Beats Colts, 10-3 LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A first-quarter touchdown by Dave Hampton gave the Atlanta Falcons a 10-3 victory over the Baltimore Colts in a National Football League exhibition game Saturday. The touchdown was set up by a 15-yard fourth-down pass from Kim McQuilken to Alfred Jenkins. The first score of the game came when Nick Mike-Mayer kicked a 28-yard field goal for Atlanta. The Falcons got field position when Herb Mul-Key fumbled a punt reception into the hands of Rick Byas on the Colts' 22. The Colts only score occurred when Tony Linhart kicked a 19- yard field goal in the third quarter. The Colts had to settle for the three-pointer after they were unable to turn a first-andgoal on the one-yard line into a touchdown. Steve Bartkowski, the first player to go in this year's college draft, saw his first professional pass intercepted by Colt linebacker Jim Cheyunski.
