10-A THE A B I L E N E REPORTER-NEWS Abilene, Texas, Wednesday Evening, A u g u s t 11, 1968 Morning ' .\f AWct Kv R I U , HAI-STIiAI) EVER SO often, a person pops up wilh tlic same name as sonie well-known sports figure, On record are a "civilian" Micky Mantle, a John Brotlic, a Hal Greer, and who knows how many Hal Smiths after a pair of former major league catchers with that monicker. Reverse Is Weird Not Inn o f t e n , I hough, docs an Instance occur when a well-known sports figure has virtually the same n a m e as an obscure sports writer. And when Dial is a fact, strange tilings can happen. Which is why this writer is going i n t o hiding Friday. Why Friday? Because t h a t ' s I he day I h e S w e c t w a I e r M e n ' s P a r t n e r s h i p G o l { Tournament opens, sporting an entry list of most of the top amateur swatters in North Central and West Texas. One of them is stmie nut from W i c h i t a Falls who lias the audacity til call himself Dill llolstead. Now, trying lo trade on such a name will get him practically nowhere, I can assure him. But let the record show that he, like me, is stuck w i t h it in one form or anolher, so he is forgiven. Hill Holstciul of Wichita Falls is a top-notch golfer, who was a high school .standout and has carved several louniatiient viclorics -anti there the dissimilarity ends. He is, 1 believe, 23 -- as is (his writer. He is somewhat lanky -- as is I h i s writer. He is right-handed in golf -- as is Ihis writer. And his reputation can he a real nuisance when you are on his 'turf." as it were. Trying lo make one's way around Wichita Falls while saddled w i l h such a name is a sad experience, believe me. I gol the full Irealment about the lime 1 was a sophomore in high school. My Dad had to go lo Wichita Boot- Into Oblivion Suddenly I fell like a f i g u r a t i v e field goal -kicked oft the tee into a three-point landing. And I slill didn't know what had happened. Chastened, I played alone and grimly returned the next day. Once more, the s i t u a t i o n presented itself tin Ihe firsl tee. "Bill Holstead, hah? Yeah, well, you must be prclly good, from all I read in Ihc papers. Slcp up and belt one and show us how it's done." No sir. 1 wasn't about lo make a fool of myself. One swing and they'd know I wasn'l Ihcir hometown hero R E A L fast. And then Ihe fun would begin all over again. Meekly I lied t h a t I was waiting for some friends lo show up. So the group teed off w i t h o u t me -- and I stormed i n t o Ihe clubhouse. "Hoy, jusl who the heck is Ihis Bill Holstead, anyway?" J fired al (he attendant. With a benign look, he informed me t h a t the young man was one of Ihc belter a m a t e u r golfers in Ihe area, and t h e n licked off a lengthy list of his accomplishments. "Say, tie should be rut here in a while -- you could ineel him if you stick a r o u n d . W h a t ' s your name, by Ihe way?'' HURLS SHUTOUT Falls on business, and he look the entire family along for a three-day scmi- vacalhin. Well, the old pro here promptly loaded his golt clubs, hot to try out a new course oi 1 two. Never one lo wait around, I showed up al Ihe Weeks Park municipal layout Ihe morning a f t e r we arrived. The course was hard-baked and made a prodigious driver oul ot anyone who could keep Hie ball low and hard. Thus, with a notable lack o( accuracy, I loured the place in 77 -- far belter t h a n t had ever done in Dallas. Cynics will note I lie round was shot in obscurity -- 1 played alone. Hindsight later fold me Ihe following two days should have been played liie same -- but ol' stupid paid no heed. The second morning, 1 ran i n t o a threesome on the first tec -- and Ihe spectre of Bill llolslead loomed for the firsl time. One of Ihcir number politely asked me lo join their group. Courteously, he introduced himself and his two buddies. W i t h an innocent grin, ! announced my i d e n t i t y -- anil was greeted with a stone-cold silence. Then, in a self-righteous roar, the biggest man let me have it. "What! Wlm're you k i d d i n g ? We all know Bill llolslead, and you aren't him. "What are you trying lo prove, fella? We won't stand for this nonsense -- get mil of here!" MarichaS Nabs 21st Victory liy I I A I / H O C K Assnclah'i!
