M» - *«!• *"** Dickinson Wins Title After Five-Year Wait By HAL PARIS Associated Press Sports Writer CLEVELAND, Ohio (A) It was a long five-year drought, . but Gardner Dickinson figures "' the first place money of $20,700 : was worth waiting for. "It was a very satisfying vic- • tory," the slightly built, 153- pound Florida pro noted after • hs breezed home in even par 70 < Sunday to win the Cleveland Open golf championship. He •finished nine-under for the 72 holes with a 271. * * * :. It was the first tour title since 1962 for the steady Dickinson • who has .become a familiar ; trademark on golf courses everywhere with his white-billed -. cap.. "I've played very consistently for a good while and haven't missei) very many fairways. I've worked hard. But I can't give enough credit to Tony Penna who has worked tirelessly with roe to help my game the last six years. ' ' Penna is i * pro * * from Palm Beach, Fla. Dickinson, whose best previous finish this year was a tie for third at Phoenix Ariz., also credited fabled Ben Hogan for some lessons in 54 when the Florida golfer got out of the Army. Dickinson, Who played the tight 6,611-yard Aurora Country Club course with precision accuracy, wasn't quite as sharp as in earlier rounds when he post- ed scores of 68, 66 and 67. Two Texans, Miller Barber and Homero Blancas, finished tied for second with 275s. Tommy Aaron, who had the day's best round with a 66, closed in a five-way deadlock for fourth place with Jerry Edwards, Allen Henning, Phil Rod. gers and Lou Graham. All had 277s. * * * A stroke back at 278 were Co bie LeGrange, Wayne Yates and Arnold Palmer. Grouped at 279 were Lionel Hebert, Gene Littler, Bert Weaver and Billy Cas. per. U. S. Open king Jack Nicklaus and Masters champion Gay Brewer were locked at 282 with four others. Irwin Remorseful After NCAA Win SHAWNKE ON DELAWARE', Pa. (AP) - Hale, Irwin, the University of Colorado marketing student who won the 70th annual NCAA golf championship Is a painfully honest young man. He had just won college golf's most coveted title, an accomplishment that bypassed such greats as Arnold Palmer, Lawson Little, Charley Coe and Bobby Jones. He .had a right to be elated, cocky, ready to liek the world. Not this 6-foot-6-inch football star who looks more like a golfer. In effect, he said he was terrible and that he almost backed into the title he wanted so badly. He wasn't sure he belonged in the company of last year's winner, Bob Murphy Of Florida, or the 65 champ, Marty Fleckman, or such previous NCAA kings as Jack Nickiaus, Phil Rodgers, R.H. Sikes and Kermit Zarley. The fly in his championship ointment was a final round seven-over-par 79 Saturday on the 7,025-yard Shawnee Inn Golf Course. "I don't like to .end a tournament playing so badly," he said, when he could have said, winning is the thing. "I don't know how to explain this round" he declared. "I was a combination of fatigue, generally poor play and an element of choke." He headed home after his four rounds of 70-72-65-79—286, gave him a two stroke win over a trio deadlocked at 288 - Bunky Henry, Georgia Tech placekick- er; Ross Randall, San Jose State and Robert Drue Johnson, Arizona State. Henry shot a final round two- under-par 70, Johnson and Randall each 71 in the fruitless assault on Irwin's five-stroke 54- hole lead. .
