"Sometimes you get the impression that reading a couple of boxing magazines and watching several 'Rocky films is all that's necessary for someone to become a trainer," he said. "If you want to be a plumber or a carpenter you have to serve an apprenticeship. If you want to be a doctor or lawyer, well you know what you have to do," said the Staten Islander, whose best-known pupil is choreographer Twyla Tharp. Atlas' background could serve as an example for those either considering a ' career as a trainer, or those novice boxers Interested in finding a competent coach. Forced out by bad back "I was in the Adirondack and Massachusetts Golden Gloves and won them, but had to quit because of a bad back," said Teddy, who wears a scar from a long-ago knife fight "Then, for about eight years, I studied with ' Cur' ; D'Amato." '"" Tharp enlisted Atlas when she wanted to make a comeback as a dancer and decided prize fighters are the best conditioned athletes. It worked very well, and Tharp herself has been known to attend the Gloves when they're at the Felt Forum. Atlas also works with former Gloves middleweight champ Chris Reid, who is now 11-0 as a pro with 10 knockouts and a healthy following in Ireland. Teddy has also worked with Barry McGuigan, the WBA featherweight champion from Ulster. "This year, in the Gloves, I am working with Robert Williams, a 20-year-old from the Bronx who is an open light-heavyweight," Atlas said. "He won the Spanish Gloves and is about to go to Puerto Rico for his first international competition. "That should help him improve his confidence. When that happens, the flow of things improves. What may have been marked by hesitation in the gym can flow smoothly when that confidence comes together. I know Riddick Bowe (a light-heavy who is ranked No. 1 in the nation) is an awesome puncher, but Robert will give, him a good contest I'm sure of that" ' Zoeller takes Skins, thanks Jack THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MURIETTA, Calif. It was precisely the situation Fuzzy Zoeller wanted: an uphill, 12 foot birdie putt for $150,000. "That's what it's all about," Zoeller said. "It's not a feeling of nervousness, there's not a feeling of tension, but there's a hole in your stomach. "It's what golf is all about. "Like I told you, I just wanted to put myself in a position like that to choke for that kind of money." "He didn't choke," said Tom Watson. "It suprised me," said Fuzzy, who added another $105,000 later in the day. finished the nine holes with $255,000 and planted a mock kiss on a startled Jack Nicklaus. Video game Zoeller, making his first appearance in this two-day, 18-hole made for-televlson match and playing against three of golf's legendary figures, rapped the putt into the back of the cup. He went on to a money-winning victory yesterday in the third edition of golf's Skins Game. "Thank you guys for carrying me," Zoeller said to Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Watson. Zoeller had picked up twice and hadn't really threatened until he won the biggest skin of the match. There had been five carryovers, each worth $25,000, when Zoeller made the big-money putt." "My gut was really Jumping," said Zoeller. Three holes later, with $70,000 at stake on the par 3 15th at Nicklaus' Bear Creek Club, the relaxed Zoeller fit v, ' - r ZZ,-: V t-c 4 ., , v.- ......
