MAURY WILLS Pete Gent Plays Wait Game DALLAS, Tex.

Gent has been waiting since Cowboys head coach Tom Lari- dry notified him last week he was being placed on waivers in an attempt to attract a trade offer or give him his outright release. (UIj£ fmijtotntt &ttti ^^^^^— 5P0PTS SHAVING STROKES by Frank Beard 13-1 r on-Clad Philosophy Like most people, I divide my irons into three categories—long, middle and short. My attitude toward each group is, ! think, unshakable. The long iron is either the I, 2 and 3 or the 2, 3 and 4, depending on the individual. I never approach these irons with the thought of hitting them close to the hole. Because they are so difficult to use, I have found it not worth the gamble. You don't-make birdies with long irons, you get them on the green and two-putt for pars. Maybe you hit long irons better than I do; but I've discovered that if I gear my mental approach to taking the long iron and shooting for the fat part of the green —regardless of where the pin is—I'll ha--e^much more consistent results. The short irons are the 7 8, 9 and wedge and, for them, I use the opposite ap C roach. I feel these are my irdie or pay-off clubs and must get these close for one putts. From here, more than any other place, I charge the pin. .The midirons are at leas the 5 and 6 and they could go to 4, again depending on the individual. With these, I lean a little toward the short iron approach—zeroing in—but ; want to make sure I ge them on the green. . All this goes into the wholi game plan before you tee off. And I find if I don't var t from this, no matter how much I need a birdie, my results will be more con sis tent. I'll save more bogeys than I would have made birdie*. niirpr'm Ann.)
