The current crop, safely settled in Los Angeles, has nothing but fond memories of the battered old ball yard on lh c Harlem River where the hapless New York Mets pla'y friendly host. Dodger hearts grew fonder of the place Sunday as the National League leader s played their last two games ever at the Polo Grounds, won them both, stretched their lead to six full game s and salvaged a road trip a golf club. The 32-year-old Californian, a former U.S. Open champion, wondered whether his golf career had ended. But one day the hand began to respond to medical treatment and after a few practice sessions, he accepted a challenge to play Jack Nicklaus in an exhibition. The hand hurt a little, but he shot a 08. Deciding to test (he hand in PGA tournament play again, he entered the $40,000 Insurance City Open and won top money, $6,400. The tourney ended Sunday. Casper, with a 13-under par 271, downed big George Bayer, the third round leader, by a stroke. Wes Ellis, who set the pace in the first and second rounds, was third with 275, and Doug Ford was fourth with 277. The victory brought Billy's career earnings to $272,229.
