Mattison Threat in KVGA Tourney "If you are a four-handicapper, you are the best four-handicapper I have ever seen. You almost won the State Amateur," veteran golf champion Bill Campbell told Robert Melvin "Bunny" Mattison last Sunday after the Amateur at White Sulphur Springs. "Well, actually my handicap is now five at Sleepy Hollow," Mattison replied to Campbell. Whatever his handicap, the 39-year-old Mattison put on quite a show at the State Amateur. He hit into and out of trouble, chipped in from off the greens, sank long putts and made a good run at winner Jay Guthrie in the final round. Mattison was tied with Guthrie with three holes left and finally finished three strokes back because some putts refused to fall. Mattison, a South Carolina native who played college golf for Clemson, will try to keep his hot golf streak going in the Kanawha Valley Golf Assn. tournament coming up July 19-23. If he stays hot, the Carbide purchasing agent is going to be tough to beat. "It looks like the KVGA will have the strongest field ever." said tournament director Jim Chatfield. "Five former champions are entered. To that add the names of Bunny Mattison and Harold Payne, who played well in the State Am, and it should be a wide-open fight for the 72-hole tournament." The five former champions are Kenny Bowen (1967), Tom Mollencop (1968), Dr. Jack Shamblin (1973), John Spence (1970, 1971 and 1974) and Jim Passero (1975). This is the first time in several years that Bowen has entered the Kanawha Valley tourney. Payne had his troubles at the State Amateur, including the breaking of his putter in the final round, but the Marshall University golf captain could run away with the Kanawha Valley event if his game falls back in place. "There are a few openings left as of this date (July 5). The deadline for entries is July 12 (Monday)," Chatfield wrote. The tournament will consist of two flights-championship and first flight-based on handicaps. The qualifiers for the final round will depend on 54-hole scores. Clark Young will again serve as official starter and be in charge of the Scoreboard, Chatfield said. The Kanawha Valley tournament schedule is July 19 (Monday) at Berry Hills, July 20 (Tuesday) at Meadowbrook, July 22 (Thursday) at Edgewood and July 23 (Friday) at Sleepy Hollow. Young Three Events This Month for Junior Golfers July will be a big month for junior golfers in the state. There are three events coming up for the youngsters. Tbe first one is the Chevrolet-PGA junior golf qualifier Monday at Sleepy Hollow. There are 15 entries, with the top two boys advancing to a Tri-State tournament at Pittsburgh.

McTear To Miss Olympics PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. (AP) - Houston McTear, the schoolboy sprint star from Florida and one of the United States' top hopes for an Olympic track medal, was scratched from the Montreal Summer Games Saturday due to a torn hamstring in his left leg. He was replaced on the 100- meter squad by Johnny Jones, 18, a high school football star from Lampasas, Tex., a spokesman for the U.S. Olympic Committee said. The 19-year-old McTear went to Baker High School in Milligan, Fla., but now runs out of Santa Monica, Calif. The USOCsaid the 5-foot-8,170-pounder will remain with the team and be a member of offical delegation to Montreal. American officials agreed that McTear, who clocked 10.16 seconds for the 100 meters in the finals of the U.S. Olympic Trials at Eugene, Ore., could not compete because of the injury sustained in Thursday's practice. Jones finished fourth in the trials with a time of 10.23 seconds. The other two 100-meter men on the team are Harvey Glance, 19, who clocked 10.11 seconds, and Steve Riddick, 24, timed in 10.18. The announcement was made by the USOC following a meeting of the track and field coaches and the USOC medical staff headed by Dr. John Anderson of Brunswick, Maine. The USOC released a medical statement which said, in part, "Due to the extent of his injury and because the chance of injury with longterm damage was high, the decision was made that McTear will not com- nprp " Nastase Rolls Over Connors MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) - Hie Nastase of Romania rallied from a first- set drubbing and upended Jimmy Connors 0- 6, 6-4, 7-5 in a semifinal match of the Grand Slam of Tennis Saturday. Nastase, who arrived only Friday night from Hawaii, was unable to put his game together in the beginning. His serves had no power and Conners took advantage of the situation to blanket the net and volley powerfully for winners. "The first two games I didn't know what to do with the ball," Nastase said, pointing out that in little more than a week's time he has played on grass, carpet and clay surfaces. The Rumanian began the second set by winning his first game of the match but Conners scored a service break in the third game of the set and it appeared the match would end quickly. In the fifth game, Nastase finally appeared to get his power back, forcing several poor returns by Conners and won the game with the first of five aces he scored in the match. A thundershower forced the players off the court for about 1 hours, with Conners leading 3-2 in the second set. When they returned, Nastase picked up where he left off, gaining momentum as the match progressed. Conners won his next serve but it was his last of the set. Nastase was able to effectively shut off Conners' net game by hitting strong and deep to the baseline and passing Conners when he approached the net.

Improving Boating Facilities Said High On City's Priorities By Danny Wells Improving facilities for boaters in the Charleston area is a high priority in the city administration, according to Drew Summers, who is the Superintendent of the Parks and Recreation Commission. At present, there are only two ramps available for launching boats in the entire city of Charleston. The facilities become less adequate each summer as boaters increase in the area. Summers points out that studies are being made of two -possible site locations for a marina on Elk River which would include ramps, docking space and gasoline. The only place to buy gasoline on the Kanawha River in this area now is at St. Albans. The Charleston Boat Club has gas but it is sold to members only. "TWO SPECIFIC locations are under study," said Summers. "Both of them are on the Elk River. One location would be in conjunction with the central Charleston Community Center which is being built on urban renewal property. The river front involved would be between Donnally Street and the Interstate Bridge." Summers said the other location under consideration is closer to the Civic Center end of Elk River. Summers said the study of the two locations is being done by a consultant hired by the U.S. Corps of Engineers. "I'm very optimistic that a new facility for boaters will be available in Charleston Germans Capture Endurance Race WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (AP)-A turbo- charged Porsche 935, piloted by West Germans Rolf Stommelen and Manfred Schur- ti, held on for victory Saturday in the six- hour World Championship of Makes endurance race, despite brake problems in the final half of the race. in the next two or three years," said Summers. Summers said the study has been under way for about three months and the Final reports won't be made until early next summer. Summers said it is uncertain at this point how the new marina would be funded. "The city might have to pay for all of it," said Summers. "Or a cost-sharing agreement could be worked out with the Corps of Engineers. The only problem with the Corps of Engineers getting involved in the funding is that the city would have to deed the land to the United States Government." The city of Charleston spent close to Drew Summers Seeks Boat Facility $20,000 last spring to extend the ramps and build a small dock at the C P launching site in South Ruffner.
