Then came the detour, The lanky, red-haired Canadian had won two straight tournaments. He had a chance in the $ 100,000 Dor al Open to tn ake it three in a row—a feat last accomplished In 1960 when Arnold Palmer racked up the Texas, Baton Rouge and Pensacola opens in succession, But In Thursday's opening round, Knudson veered onto a sideroad rough with bogeys. "It was a terrible effort," he said after posting a 76 and winding up 11 distant strokes behind the leader, Gardner Dickinson. Knudson had come here bubbling with confidence after his victories' at Phoenix and Tucson made him the year's top money winner. In less than throe months, he had earned $50,310, more than he had ever banked before in an entire year. He didn't realize it then, but the paessure was beginning to get to him. Shortly after starting his round Thursday he said he realized that "1 was getting pretty tied up—all on edge." Suddenly, the ball wasn't going where he aimed it. "It was awful from the first shot to the last," he said."Iwas never with it all day long." There were no birdies along (he road, only bogeys. He collected five of them. Two came on the eighth and 10th holes when shots pulled out of line by the tension dropped into Doral's notorious water hazards and he took one-stroke penalties. But when the shock wore off, Knudson decided that, "It's a relief actually." "I knew I couldn't keep Jt up," he said. "I've broken/a string and now I'll just have to try to start a new one." Dickinson, with no problem of pressure, fired a record-tying, seven-under-par 65 and went into Friday's second round with a two-stroke margin over Lionel Hebert and Howie Johnson.

Bad Blood Finally Stills Out So. Caro. 101, Virginia 78 Rockets Tie Another ^ HBA Record By THE'ASSOCIATED PRESS 0 Henry Finkel topped his entire 1966-67 season output, but he couldn't keep the San Diego Rockets from tying another National Basketball Association record for futility. Finkel scored 41 points Thursday night, one more than he scored in 27 games as a rookie with the Los Angeles Lakers last season, as the Rockets lost to the Lakers 119-102. For the Rockets, who have won just 15 times in 76 games, the loss was their 29th at home, tying an NBA record set by the 1964-65 San Francisco Warriors, Earlier this season, the Rockets lost 17 straight, which tied a league mark held by those same Warriors.

Pittsburgh nipped Oakland 119-114, Houston downed Indiana 115-104 and Minnesota took Ana- helm 124-115 in the American Basketball Association. Finkel scored 29 of his team's 46 first-half points en route to a single-game record for the first-year-old club, The previous best San Diego scoring perform* ance was 37 points by Don Ko- Jls.

The Minnesota Mwskies also scored on the road over Ana- hejm 124-115 and the Houston Mavericks \von at home over the Indiana Pacers 115-104 in the other ABA games sched- By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS There's been bad blood between Eddie Shack and Larry Zeldel for 10 years and Thursday night some of it spilled. Shack, the burly Boston forward, and Zeidel, a Philadelphia defenseman who has brawled his way through 17 seasons of professional hockey, cut ;each other about the head in an 'agonizing stick-swinging duel that .'cost'.each •'player a match penalty, automatic ^lOg-fln^.and possible suspension^"*"'^j? The National Hockey League 'game>was played on neutral Toronto Ice— Philadelphia's Spectrum is closed because of wind damage—and Boston eked out a 2-1 victory to climb within one point of idle New York in the race for second place in the East Division. Los Angeles and Minnesota moved Into a second^lace tie in the West, two points behind Philadelphia. The Kings walloped Oakland, 9-2, while the North Stars battled to a 2-2, deadlock with Pittsburgh. The Shack-Zeidel feud dates back to an October 1958 exhibition game at Niagara Falls, N.Y., when Shack was a rookie with New York and Zeldel was playing for Hershey of the 1 American League. They went at each other with fists then, first on the ice and eventually in the stands. Both were arrested, with Zeidel later fined $200 on a charge of assaulting a police officer. Zeidel wasn't content to fence with Shack Thursday after the pair collided on the ice. He almost ripped off the doors In the first-aid room in an effort to get at the Boston player. The Bruins suffered another In a string of injuries when rookie ace Derek Sanderson was struck in the left eye by a teammate's slap shot and needed 12 stitches to close a cut, The eye swelled shut, Goals by Ken Hodge and Gary Poak and the tight defense of goalie Gerry Cheevers carried Boston to victory.

Detroit at Bradenton, Fla, Robinson Signs for $/J5,000 By HERSCHEL NISSENSON Associated Press Sports Writer Baltimore's Frank Robinson and/Philadelphia's Johnny Callison finally set pen to paper Thursday but the New York Yankees still are having trouble putting bat to ball. While Robinson was signing for about $115,000 with the Orioles and Callison was wrangling more than $40,000 from the Phillies, the best the weak-hitting Yankees could manage off a trio of Washington hurlers was three hits in squeezing out a 1-0 victory over the Senators in the first Grapefruit League exhibition. "I didn't get exactly what I wanted, but I'm satisfied or else I would not have signed," said the 32-year-old Robinson, who won the Triple Crown while leading the Orioles to the 1966 world championship. Robinson missed a month of the 1967 season with double vision after a baseline collision but still batted .311, second best In the American League. The slugging outfielder missed sev» en full days of practice but suit' ed up soon after a signing and worked out. Harry Dalton, Baltimore per» sonnei director, said Robinson's contract makes him "one of the highest paid players in baseball history, probably the highest in the American League today," Like Robinson, who had asked $125,000, Caliison also had to compromise a bit, "! didn't get what i wanted," Cailison echoed, "but then, I didn't sign for what they wanted me to, either," The right fielder, who slumped to a .261 batting avei> age, 14 homers and 64 runs bat. ted in last season, said he was in good shape-T M the best shape I've ever been in"^and hoped to be in the exhibition lineup in about a week.
