Wednesday, June 26, 1974 : Ukiah jbaily;, Journal, Ukiah Calif— n Practicing extension Survives firsf cut well Gary Shimmin tied for 11th in State golf GARY PLAYER'S GOLF CLASS: yidah's Gary Shitnmin, son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Shimmin,. this morning embarked on his second 36 holes of highly competitive golf play at fabled Pebble Beach and Caress golf courses tied for 11th after the first day of the California State Amateur Golf Championship qualifying. Shimmin shot steady rounds of 77 and 78 respectively at Pebble Beach and Cypress, two of the most beautiful and challenging golfing layouts in the .entire golfing world. His 155 left him tied for 11th place with eight others, "nine" strokev<^ the pace of leader Craig Stadler, United States Amateur champion from, USC, 'who had a 146. But Shimmin's comparative taming of both Pebble and Cypress' tough par 72, 76 rated courses, left him afhong the leadtag quallifyers the first day, and well up among the leaders of the 64 out of 200 first day golfers who are still "alive" for two more shots, at the courses today. The top 16 after today — and Shimmin is on the brink of. making the top 16 if he can put together two more strong rounds, being no worse than 18th and actually in a tie playoff position if it comes, to,that — will begin head to head match play Thursday ^ for the California State championship. ^•Three Strokes ahead, of Shimmin going into today's play , is an .old (but young) and respected golfing rival, Napa's , Mark "Lye, with a 152. Defending champion Mike Brennan of Salinas is tied with the 1973 runner-up three strokes behind Stadler. (See adjoining story.) r , .' Many of the 200 golfers had hot and cold rounds —some bouncing from 81 to 74 (Par is 72); some from 74 to 81. ^ ^immin, himself, had good fortune. He not only played the terrifying open water .^oles where most golfers see their best shots fall short into the . raging surf and picturesque rocks with cool steadiness; he alsobad.a "lucky break" on a key shot. He told his father, a Savings Bank of 'Mendocino County official, by phone that at one point he was in trouble in a sand trap. But he played the'ball as best he could, swinging \vith determination and the purpose . of getting out of the sand and on -toward the green. The ball cleared the 'bunker, gained some altitude,' then hit a limb! But instead of bouncing back toward the. trap the ball bounced forward toward and onto the green, saving the watching Shimmin more , strokes and worry. Not as familiar with the Pebble and Cypress courses as many of the bigger name golfers are, and not able to devote as much time as the USC golfing^ star and- other golfers currently are able to do, Shimmin, a former Ukiahi and Santa Clara University player a few years back, is happy to be where he is. He's holding his own with the golfing dite in California — and even national —amateur golf. There's not more the Santas Rosa insurance eniploye could wish — except to survive today and maybe take on some of the other top is'golfers in the Stat^ Amateur, head-on, starting ITiursday. Shooting for par on each hole is paying off. By MILLie GILLESPIE Remember to attend tonight's golf clinic, scheduled for 7:30. Pro Paul Underwood will be dispensing the tips.

Defensive tackle Bill Sandifer,. one of two" top 1974 draft picks, underwent knee surgery Tuesday to repair ligament damage he suffered last Saturday during this year's contest. The operation on the big UCLA lineman was. termed a success and a club spokesman said his chances for a complete recovery were "excellent" al-, though he will miss training camp. The 49ers other first choice, Alabama running back Wilbur Jackson, suffered a spraine<^ ankle in the game, but his condition is not bdieyed to be serious. Last year's top pick, defensive back. Mike Holmes, was injiired in the coach's game and never played one miilute for the 49ers all season. PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (UPI) — Craig Stadler not only is the leader today in the California State Amateur Golf Championship, but he's hopefully a little wiser. The University of Southern California senior, bidding to add the prestigious California title to his U.S. amateur crown, shot what, he thought was a one-under-par 71 at tougn Pebble Beach in - the second round Tuesday, but found out it actually was a 73. Stadler aifeady had putted out on the fifth green when he repaired spike marks in the line of putt for former Trojan teammate .Mike Haney. He didn't think there was anything wrong with what-he did. But, when' Stadler stepped off the iath green, officials were waiting and slapped the two- shot penalty on him. "I didn't realize there was a rule against it since I had said "already putted out,' Stadler, who holds a three-shot lead going into today's third round An the marathon • State event. "But you learn something about golf every time you play." ' The first yo-yo was, marketed in 1867 by Charles Kirchof, in Newark, N.J., its • name was the VPatent Return Wheel." SOCCER FRANCHISE ST. LOUIS, Mo. (UPI) - Comm'igsioner Phil Woosnam of the North American Soccer League said Tiiesday the league would add a franchise°-in San • Antonio nextspason. The^^franchise, awarded to a group of San Antonio businessmen headed by H. Ward Lay, a construction executive, will .expand the league to 17 teams. The NASL, which operated with 15 teams this year,, awarded a franchise last we^ek to Tampa.'Woosnam said three, more teams may be a'dded for the 1975 season.- Twelve cities dropped out of the NASL in 1968. BY MIKE IIUGHES .WIMBLEDON, England (UPI) Rosie C^saJs would like to win Wimbledoii ,but "she/is not too exfiited about being here. But to win Wimbledon you've got to play the 12-day tournament at the M^ca of tennis where change comes slowly no matter what e^se is happening in the sport. Sponsorship is the name of tiie game around the world today. Nobody plays in white any longer, but Wimbledon has firmly''turned its back on sponsorship and insists on the all-white dress rule. The crowds still come .in the thousands so the club can Easily find the record $234,480 it hag- put up in prize money this year. Casals enjoys the atmosphere of World Team Tennis where everything goes, unlike Wimbledon where silence is the rule -during-rallies. "I find Wimbledon staid after team tennis wherp people cheer during rallies and come apart while'joining in the action. It's good fof"spectators to get in:, volved. I certainly enjoy it. "It reaiiy is funny to hear the umpire call for 'quiet' here," ' Rosie said. ' Casals also is not happy about .. playing on grass, even Wim-- > bledon's grass which tournament officials claim is the best in the world. "After playing on an artificial carpet indoors, where you can play your strokes without fear, it's hard to change to grass where the bounce is irregular."
