7,1*74 Three New Tourneys Considered WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS - TV MW officers of the West Virginia Golf ASM - preside* Albeit "Bertie" Scnwabe of Cbarkstoa and secretary E. M. "Ned" Payne of Beckley - are comideriBg three new Uwraameats. "We have some ideas we would like to put H effect," said Schwabe. "One thtBf we definitely want to do is fet a state junior golf program and tournament started. We'd like to do it this year if possible. "We also are considering a match play state tournament in addition to our current stroke play State Amateur," he said. "Both would be sponsored by the West Virginia Golf Assn. Several states have both match play and stroke play tournaments. "Aarther idea we have in mind is to issue an iavhatiw to Vir- gMia to reinstate the oU Virginia-West Virginia Batches," Schwahe CMtuwed. "The ton 12 finishers frwn h»th states e*uld play each tther. We cwiU htU it here at The Greenhrier, for instance, er maybe at the Homestead in ffot Strings." Schwabe said the West Virginia Amateur will continue to be played at The Greenbrier. "I don't know of any other course in' the state that has the facilities or the desire to put on the State Amateur." Bertie commented. farasfdlkttke dny Mhe CMM hdp Jne Pante wM *e ra« Stale Amateur Entry Fee May Be Raised The entry fee for the State Amateur may have to be raised, however. Schwabe noted. "We are going to need some more revenue to pay for these new tournaments," he remarked. "We might consider raising the entry fee by $3 to IS. I don't think most of the guys would object to that. "We also will take a good, hard look at the dues that the member clubs are paying into the West Virginia Golf Assn.," ·Schwabe added. "The smaller clubs pay the same dues as the '.larger clubs and that doesn't seem too equitable." : Schwabe, Payne and vice president Staurt Bloch of Wheeling 'were elected to one-year terms and take over their offices Monday after the conclusion of the State Amateur. "We have all 'agreed to stay on for two years if needed," Schwabe stated. "We ·also want to appoint more committees and get more people involved in the West Virgiaia Golf Assn." ; Retired Huntington sports editor Fred Burns said he would continue as tournament director for another year to help acquaint Schwabe and Payne with all the details of running a State - Amateur. "But they had better start looking for someone to take ; ;my place," remarked Burns, who is 74 and hopes to spend more time with his grandchildren.

He is out of our class," remarked Kenny Bowen of South Charleston. "Well, anyway we did get rid of Barney Thompson (who turned pro two years ago). It used to be Barney and Bill on top and the rest of us playing for third. Now at least we are playing for second," Bowen added with a smile. Campbell feels the greens on the Old White course are much easier to putt this year. "The greens used to be very grainy," Bill said. "Now most of the grain is gone except for just a tiny little nap. It is no longer a factor. I think that is one of the reasons that Sam Snead has been taking the course apart the past few weeks, shooting in.tbe low 60s. Of course, Sam always plays well but the greens are just so much easier to putt." Greg Powers, 21, of Huntington drew a laugh from the small gallery in front of The Greenbrier casino Friday when he tied a white rag around his putter and walked off the course saving, "I surrender." Greg shot a 77 but did manage to make the cut. Robert Mitchell, who took over this year as superintendent of The Greenbrier's three golf courses, has them in excellent shape. "Mitchell really knows his business on taking care of golf courses and he is an easy man to work with," remarked Greenbrier golf manager Emmet Simpson. Bad Back Keeps Foutche From Playing Dick Foutche of Charleston was here to watch the Amateur and all of his friends were asking him how he was feeling. "I've had back trouble for the last eight months and I've only been able to play golf once this year," Foutche said. "My back has really been othering me the last three months." Dick has lost 35 pounds. Veteran WCHS sportscaster Ernie Sawders also came to the tournament not feeliag very well. Eraie has been in the hospital Trapshoot To Open Friday The Carbide Gun Club in Putnam County near St. Albans will be the scene of the 54th annual West Virginia Trapshoot next Friday through Sunday, July 12-14. Shooters from around the state will compete in a total of five events, highlighted by the state singles championship on Saturday. Other events will include the doubles championship on Friday and the handicap championship on Sunday. The remaining two events will be preliminary shoots on Friday, sandwiched. around the doubles event. "atayte law atayt at The Gfteahrier an «a* 1 need to reesjawraie."

The Reds, fighting for their lives suddenly after sinking 10 games behind, send 21-year- old Tom Carroll against Bob Forsch of the St. Louis Cardinals. The rookie duel of righthan- ders is set for the first game of a doubleheader between the two title contenders. The Cards are fighting to keep the lead in the Eastern Division. The Reds are giving the highly-regarded Carroll an op- portunity to fill the breach left by injury-prone starter Roger Nelson. Forsch, 24, is a brother to Houston Astros pitcher Ken Forsch. Carroll is no relation to the Reds' veteral reliever Clay Carroll. A year ago they were opposing each other in the minor leagues. "You can't help but be a little nervous," said Forsch, who was switched from an ail- Star third baseman ft pitcher three years ago. "I remember watching the Reds in the World Series right after that. I never gave it much thought that I might be pitching against them someday,',' said the Sacramento, Calif., native.

William Talkington of New Martinsville in doubles, and Frank Hall of Charleston in singles. The singles shoot has been dominated in recent years by Charleston area shooters, with Hall winning in 1972, Sebe Campbell of St. Albans in 1971 and Jim Yates of Poca in 1970 and 1969. The singles championship is a 200-target affair, starting at 8 a.m. on Saturday. Numerous trophies will be awarded, including to the state lady and junior champions, and to open and resident high guns. The doubles championship on Friday will be a 58-pair shoot, while the handicap championship on Sunday will be over the IW-target route. Following the conclusion of the three-day event, a West Virginia all-round champion will be chosen on the basis of combined score in singles, double and handicap. Defending doubles champion Talkington is also the all-around defending champion. The Carbide Hunting and Fishing Club will host the state shoot.
