BUI Is King of Hill in State Amateur Go BILL CAMPBELL Shonlitif! for \\. it Holmes, Estep Top South Hills' Loop Red Holmes and bill Estep lead the South Hills summer basketball league in scoring with 21 point averages after two games. St. Albans and The Hill are tied for first in the standings with 2-0 records. .; One tfiiag for sure In ihe State Amateur, You've got to call Bill The king of the hill. Tall Bill is so heady And his golf so steady. That the others may reckon They are playing for second. We apologize for our poor efforts at poetry but it's just another way of saying that Bill Campbell of Huntington is again favored in the West Virginia Amateur starting Thursday at White Sulphur Springs. In fact, you could call Campbell a 13-1 favorite. Bill has woo the title 13 times while all the other golfers in the field have won just one (Jim Ward in 1964). Campbell, now 51. has played in the State Am since he was lad of 13 but he hasn't lost his zest for it. "I'll be there Thursday morning just as anxious as the youngest guy playing in his first tournament." Bill said. Other golfers may shoot low rounds but Bill is so steady he usually prevails at the end. "1 just try to stay close to par." he said in revealing his game plan. "If I have a chance to make birdies, 1 do so but not at the risk of making bogeys." Campbell carded a two-under-par 278 total last year in winning by two strokes over Dr. Jack Shamblin of South Charleston and Brian Kneafsey of Huntington. The tourney record is 274 set by- Barney Thompson in 1969. .* * * Cuffaro Is Out; Sexton on Standby One of the veteran State Amateur players, Lou Cuffaro of Wheeling, will not be competing this year. 1 hear that Cuffaro won a car in a Puerto Rican golf tournament and forfeited his amateur status. The U. S. Golf Assn. puts a limit of $200 on amateur prizes. Frank Sexton of Barboursville. who won the recent Heck's Open, is not. listed in the 124-man State Amateur field but he still may play. There was a mix-up on Sexton's entry. To make a long story short. Sexton listed the Orchard Hills dub in Barboursville on his entry blank because he thought he still had a free member ship there. But an Orchard Hills official denied that Sexton was a member. Sexton is a dues-paying member of the Sugarwood club near Huntington. which makes him eligible for the Amateur. But by the time everything was cleared up, the field was full and Sexton was put on the standby list. "I don't want to wish anyone bad luck but 1 hope someone has to withdraw." Sexton told Huntington sports writers. "I'll be there in case there's a vacancy." There'are some new wrinkles in the amateur this year. The format has been changed to eliminate match play in the lower taittttal at Hoi Spriags Village, Ait. Bondea was a stroke betoad former WVU coach Juo Garten, »tx» had 17!. The wamwgcoacii- was the Air Force Academy's Bea Martia. who fired 73 aod 7* rounds for 151. Eddie Williams, the fiae black golfer at Scott High of Madison, has been offered a scholarship at Grambhng College in Louisiana. Williams plans to accept. He was the first black golfer ever to play in ihe State High School Tourcameai.

The 124-man field will be cut after 36 holes to the low 40 shooters and ties and anybody within ten strokes of the leader. With the money saved from not having to buy flight trophies, all of the golfers will have the chance for a free practice round Wednesday at The Greenbrier. The new system is so popular that tournament director Fred Burns said he received 28 entries over his limit. The Senior Amateur will be held at the same Thursday through Sunday and will remain match play. Ken Karl of Sistersville, who beat Jim Chatfield of Clmrleston in the finals last year, will be trying for his fifth straight Seniors title and sixth in all. * * * Let All Golf en in KVGA, Runynn Say$ Wes Runyan of 357 Eureka Road, Charleston, writes in support of my column last Sunday that the Kanawha Valley Golf Assn. Tournament should be opened to public course golfers and not be restricted to country club members. Runyan writes: "I want to say I loved your article in Sunday's paper about letting alll the good golfers in the valley compete to see * true KVGA champion: "I'm sure if you added names like (Bob) Johnson, (Kenny) Bowen and (Dave) Gillispie, you would have a much more exciting event and everyone in the valley would really get excited about the event. "I would plan my vacation every year just to play in it. "We need a good big event such as this to boom golf in the Kanawha Valley. "When you don't let everyone play, you don't have a true champion. "P. S.: I play at Big Bend and we have some of the best golfers in the valley play there," Runyan concluded. Thanks for your comments, Wes. I bet there are a lot of other golfers in the Kanawha Valley who agree with us. it it * Did Sam Shoot His Age -- 62? · CHIP SHOTS: That cracked rib sure didn't sideline Sam Snead for very long or hurt his golf game. Bill Campbell says he heard Snead shot 62 and 63 rounds at The Greenbrier last week. If Sam shot 62, he shot his age--which has to be a world record for the- lowest score ever to accomplish that feat. Only seven boys have entered the U. S. Junior Amateur qualifier at Sleepy Hollow Monday. The seven are Jay Robinson of Ravenswood, Bryan Beymer and John Norton of Huntington and- Paul McKnight, Scott Bibbee, Scott Gilmore and James Funkhauser of Parkersburg. In charge of the qualifier is P.-A. Thomas Jr. of Charleston. The medalist qualifies for the U. S. Junior Amateur at Fairfield, Conn., on July 23-24. Bobby Bowden of West Virginia University shot rounds of 87 and 85 for a 172 total in the National Football Coaches golf Invi- HAVE HE GOT BIKES?) Yes--The Cycle Shop Has The Righl Motorcycle For You!
