(AP) Tom Weiskopf is a professional golfer with a name as difficult to spell as to remember, but the likeable young fellow from Bedford, Ohio, is changing that.

He was a forerunner of Nicklaus on the golf team at Ohio State. Tom went into the final round tied with Nicklaus and Geiberger. The smart fellows figured he'd never make It to the vjcto- ry stand. But the new Tom Swift of golf still led after 63 holes and made It stick, Of the final hole, Weiskopf said that he knew he and Geiberger were tied 13 shots under par, He then discovered that Floyd had already finished, al« so 13 under. "I felt 'goodness gracious, now there's three of us tied, 1 " Weis. kopf said. Tom's approach landed on the apron. He says he merely planned to lag the ball up and go for a birdie, figuring the pressure would then be on Gei» berger, who was away, to birdie. "I never thought the ball would drop in until it was about four inches from the cup. Then I knew I had it," he said. Nicklaus, who changed Ws mind at the last hour and decided to play in the Phoenix Open this week, had this parting observation on the pitfalls of golf: "That was a pretty expensive last round." What Jack meant was, he collected $6,450 - not the $30,000 everyone thought he'd win. Sliced Slab Bacon & Lbs. i$f| ButtermilK Biscuits Cans 49 Solid Oleo Cougar has a unning male.
