Jamieson, Snead are Gallery Choices in $100,000 Quad Cities Open BETTENDORF, Iowa (AP)— Ed Sneed and Dwight Nevil and sentimental favorites Sam Snead, Sam Adams and Jim Jamieson share the favorites role for the $100,000 Quad Cities Open. The 72-hole chase for the $20,000 first prize opens Thursday over the Crow Valley Golf Club's 6,501-yard course. The par-71 layout features heavily-trapped, small greens. The tournament, started as a satellite event in 1971, was held in the fall previously and was plagued by cold and rainy weather, but was given the prime July date this year when the Robinson, 111., Open was dropped from the tournament schedule. Most of the game's major luminaries again will be absent from the tournament that was elevated to a $100.000 event two years ago. Jack Nicklaus, leading money-winner Johnny Miller, U.S. Open champion Hal Irwin, three-time tour winner Hubert Green, Lee Trevino and Tom Weiskopf will be playing in the British Open and some of the game's other top stars are taking a week off. "Despite the lack of top money winners, we feel this is one of our most balanced fields," said tournament co-chairman Frank "Whitey" Barnard. Sneed rates a favorite tag on the strength of his victory last week in the $130,000 Milwaukee Open, where he won easily with a 276 total, and Nevil on the strength of previous strong showings over the Crow Valley course. Nevil finished second here a year ago as Adams won with a 268 total. Adams' successes have been few since his surprising win here 10 months ago. The 28-year-old native of Boone, N.C., one of the few lefthanders on the tour, has earned only $28,965 this year. ''Obviously, I'm frustrated," Adams said. "And I'm very disappointed that I haven't done more with the victory. I haven't been able to follow it up." Adams, who shot back-to- back 64s to vault into the tournament lead a year ago, makes no excuses about his poor 1974 showing. "Winning puts more pressure on you to play good," he said. "It really does. I've been playing bad, too. Just bad. There ain't no other way to say it." Adams' biggest worry is his putting. "It's just gone bad on me. And that's such a big part of my game. Usually I'm a good putter. "I'm starting to play a little better," he said. "I've made the cut in three of the last four tournaments. I know that's nothing much to talk about but it's better than I've been doing." Adams finished in a tie for 57th in last week's Milwaukee Open with a 293 total that featured a closing 70.

No major Change in CC Golf There were no major shake-ups in the two divisions of the Men's Golf Supper League Tuesday evening at the Carroll Country Club. All three of last week's leaders in the American Division lost by 8-2 scores, Farner-Bocken to Goodyear, Woodmen Accident & Life to Sharp Funeral Home and the Carroll Rendering Works Skinners to Bierl's Parkway Furniture. The wins by Sharp and Goodyear preserved their top spots in the National Division. In other team play, Commercial Savings Bank beat the Checkers 6-4, Carroll County State Bank topped Heires Electric 7-3, Standard Oil defeated the Jolly Boys 7-3, Greteman's Store whipped the Rover Boys 7-3, and John Whaley Chevrolet beat the Schlitzers 8-2. The Community Jewelry team of Bill Hammen, Jim DeBower, Greg Beck and Norm Winchester recorded the low team net of 120 while blanking Budweiser 10-0. Al Stroh of Commercial Savings carded the low scratch round with an even par 35, while Hammen's 28 was low in handicap play.

"I'm more of a summer tournament player," said Nevil. "That's why I'm anxious to play at Quad Cities and the B. C. Open (next week) tournaments. I think I've got a shot at winning each one." Jamieson of nearby Moline, 111., and Snead, the 62-year-old golfing legend, are expected to be the gallery's choices. Jamieson was instrumental in bringing the tournament to the Quad Cities but has not fared well in the four previous meets. He was 14 shots off the pace two years ago and finished eight back last year. Snead, who is credited with 134 tournament victories dating back to 1937, is making his first appearance here. He was among contenders until the final round last week at Milwaukee, but finished 13th with a closing 75 and a 287 total. The tournament competition opened Wednesday when 52 teams participated in the pro- amateur event. Tournament officials were predicting a turnout of 50,000 Weiskopf Ready to Defend Crown LYTHAM St. ANNES, England (AP) — Tom Weiskopf, the American golf star who used to brood and sulk when things were going wrong, set off calm and relaxed Wednesday to defend his British Open title. "The man who is going to win over these next four days will be a patient kind of fellow," said the once-explosive Weiskopf from Columbus, Ohio. "I don't worry so much any more, I don't get hung up and I feel good," said the man who has yet to win a 1974 tournament but claims his game is sharper than it has be_en for Putters in Muny Golf Lead Monica's Putters hold a comfortable 14 shot lead in the Ladies League at the municipal course after play Tuesday. Low scratch honors went to Rita McHugh with a 44 and Roni Lynch with a 45, while Jane Graham, Joleen Handles and Sally Heinrichs fired 30,30 and 31 respectively for low net. Sally's Slicers had a 132 for low team score. Team standings: Monica's Putters 1023 Fehring's Eagles. 1037 Jeri'sParettes.. 1040 Sally's Slicers 1046 Chris' Chippers 1069 Kanne's Kitties 1071 years. Weiskopf, third favorite to win his second straight British championship at bookies odds of 12-1, is a player all the 153 other competitors fear. Tony Jacklin, who became the first Briton to win the home championship for 18 years at Lytham in 1969 and went on to add the U.S. Open crown in 1970, picked Weiskopf to repeat his 1973 triumph over the 6,822-yard par-71 links here beside the often turbulent Irish Sea. "Tom is playing better than anyone I've ever seen play in practice for a major championship," Jacklin said. Weiskopf, 32, shrugged off the compliment. "It's nice of Tony to say that," he said, ' ! but if I was picking a winner in advance it would have to be Jack Nicklaus or Lee Trevino." Nicklaus was the 5-1 betting choice for the title he has won twice before. Gary Player of South Africa, hitting the ball better than he's done in a decade, was listed at 8-1 second favorite along with grim-featured Johnny Miller of San Francisco, who tops the U.S. money list with $200,000 after five major 1974 victories. Trevino, the fast-talker from El Paso, was listed at 10-1 to crash back into the British golf scene that he dominated as an Open winner at Royal Birkdale in 1971 and Scotland's Muirfield the following year. "I just hope it rains and keeps cold and the wind blows persons for the four days—almost double last year's turnout. "Two years ago we had 50,000 for four days," noted Barnard. "Last year the late dates cut into our attendance, but the prime July dates should help us this year." Others expected to mount a challenge include former Masters champion Charles Coody, Don Iverson, Dave Stockton, George Archer, Chuck Cortney, Curtis Sifford and John Schroeder, who holds the course record with a 63 shot in the first round a year ago. all day long," said Trevino. "I'm one of the few Americans who loves it here in the worst weather. "I hit the ball so low that no one can keep up with my company." Weiskopf, nursing a hairline fracture of a bone in his left wrist, was defending his title against doctors orders. Weiskopf said that winning the British Open changed his life. "It altered my whole outlook about the game," he said. I used to be mean and moody but I'm not like that anymore. "You see, now I know I can win the British Open. "At Troon last year I finally achieved something important in golf."
