By JOE SARGIS UPI Sports Writer PALM SPRINGS, Calif. (UPD— For one bright moment at least Arnold Palmer again is the king of golf. At age 41, the man who was king of all he could surgey in the 60s finally has won a tournament, in the 70s. How long he can keep it up no one knows but the moment is beautiful and Arhie, the one man responsible for making golf the big spectator sport it is today, plans to make the most ofit. He ended 14 months of bitter frustration Sunday with a pressure packed 25-foot birdie putt on the. first hole of a sudden death playoff with 28- year-old Ray Floyd to win the $140,000 Bob Hope Desert Classic. Playing in an area where being 60 and retired is beautiful, Palmer was the big attraction all week long as he plodded lip one course and down another in the 90-hole marathon Hope Classic. Wherever he went the crowds were there and to achieve his long, sought victory Palmer shot a five under 67 at La Quinta, a one under 71 at Tamarisk, a six .under 66 at IndianWells and 6870 at Bermuda Dunes in the final two rounds. . When it was all- over Sunday Palmer waved to an appreciative audience, collected his $28,000 winner's check, and headed to. the press tent to tell how he did it. "I was willing to do anything to get a victory again," said Palmer, who ended the longest drought of his career when he won the . Hope Classic, a tourney he had taken three times in 11 previous years. Now that he finally has won one, Palmer said he plans to let up a little. He should because he has played in six tourneys since January. Sunday's victory gave Palmer a total of '57 triumphs on the U.S. tour since he turned pro in 1955. No one ever has won that many but one of the elusive ones, for Palmer has been the PGA. On the extra hole with Floyd Sunday, Palmer stood over the ball a long time, and said later a lot of things crossed his mind. "I thought about how long it had been since I won anything," he said. "I also thought of all the chances I bad this year, the playoffs I had lost. Maybe I psyched myself because J. hit a real good putt, maybe, as good as I could possibly make." Floyd, who last won when be took the 1969 PGA title, took home a check for $16,000 for his trouble. He didn't seem too upset "1 thought I got off a good putt on the extra hole," said Floyd, "but I'm glad Arnie won it. He's some guy." Lost in the shuffle of the Palmer-Floyd duel was what happened to the rest of the field. Bert Yancey wound up at 14 under 346. Billy Casper, the 1970 player of the year, was at 348 and Jim Wiechers and Bob Rosburg tied at 349. Tom Shaw, winner of the Crosby and Hawaiian Open, finished down the list at 352 and defending champion Bruce Devlin was at 355..

After his weekend in Oregon, Coach John Wooden of rop- ranked UCLA may be glad to get back to the tremors of Los ngeles.
