Lost By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LAS VEGAS, Nev, - Denny Moyer, 159, Portland, Ore., stopped Eddie Coffey, 157, Her* mosillo, Mex,, 6, TOKYO - Ushlw&kamaru Ha* rada, 118, Japan, knocked out Tom Rico, 115%, Philippines, 8, Sanders Would Like to Do It Aga in MIAMI, Fla. (AP) - Last year, Doug Sanders won the Doral Open Golf Tournament for the second time, and the $20,000 prize launched him on the biggest money winning spree of his career. This year, after a slow start, the dapper Georgian could again make the Doral a spring board-if he can stand off George Knudson, the redhot Canadian, and Jack Nicklaus, who plays Doral's "Blue Monster" course more consistently then any other pro. "Now that I'm back in Florida," Sanders says, "I should be getting a little sharper." Sanders, a former University of Florida player, needs the warm weather and the familiar course to get him off and running. In six tournaments so far on the winter tour, his best finish was a tie for 19th at Los Angeles. He has won only $5,300. Knudson, the 30-year-old Toronto star who climbed to the top of this year's money winning list with successive victories in tournaments of Phoenix and Tucson, Ariz., was drawing big galleries here. Billy Casper, the only two- time winner besides Sanders, skipped this year's doral to entertain U.S. troops in Viet Nam. Arnold Palmer also Is sitting this one out. That makes Nicklaus again a popular favorite. He has not won the tournament, but the long, demanding course Is made to order for his powerful game, and his six-year average score of 70.7' tops that of all players, "Including 1 Casper and Sanders. In a pro-am warmup Wednesday in calm sunshiny weather, the day's standout was Dudley Wysong; who shot a course- record eight-under-par 64. He hit 10 birdies and made two bogeys. Frank Beard, Dick Sikes and Bruce Crampton came in with 60s in the warmup, touring the 7,028-yard course at six under par. Sanders led the favorites with a 69, Nicklaus took a 71, and Knudson settled for 73. Started Away Unexpectedly PORTLAND, Ore.
