Two stroke lead at Las Vegas Nkklaus cans 42-foot birdie putt to win LAS VEGAS, Ncv. (UPD— i And on 18, he boomed out ono Jack Nicklaus is a champion I of his patented 250-yard-plu<: golfer because he comes through under pressure. The big fellow needed only a routine par four on tlie final hole Sunday to win SI2.000 and the Tournament of Champions lillc for the second siraight year. So what did he do? He knocked in a 42-foot pult for a birdie three, won by two big shots and mined the playoff hopes of Doug Sanders and Al Geibcrger. Going into the final two holes of play in the annual desert classic, golfs leading money winner looked like he might come unstuck and throw away the tide. On the 17th hole he had a pressure putt of four feet to maintain his one stroke lead. He knocked it right in the back of the cup. drives, but left his approach barely on the front edge of the green. If he had taken three putis, he could liavc forced Ihe tournament into a tie. But he canned it for his bird ie and thereby boosted his earnings for tlic year in official PGA money to S46.150. He also broke a siring of 19 touma mcnts in which different players liave won PGA titles—and he became the first backto- back Tournament of Champions titlist since Gene Littler won three straight in 1955-5G-57. Nicklaus had rounds of 68-7355-73 for a total of 279, nine shots under par on the long and windswept Desert Inn Country Club course. Tlie colorful Sanders made the best run at Nicklaus in the final round. He was nine shots behind at the start but a six undcr-par 66 got him seven strokes back and enabled him to pick up $6,000, the same amount Geibergcr won for finishing in a two-way tie for sec ond. Geibergcr, winner of the Ala meda Open last fall, closed with a 69 for a four-round total of 281. Collecting S3,020 apiece for tieing for third place at 282, were Juan (Chi Chi) Rodri guez, the second round leader who faded to a 73 in the final round. Tommy Jacobs, Julius Boros, Paul Harney and Don Fairfield. Arnold Palmer, who had six birdies in his final round but still could score only 70 won S1,S50 for his ninth place finish at 284. U.

Shoemaker taken in by Hill Rise By OSCAR FRALEY UPI Sports Writer NEW- YORK (UPI) — Norih- ern Dancer's victory in the Kentucky Derby must stand today as a monument to the irrevocable fact that nobody, but nobody, can pick horse race winners with infallible precision. If the lady says she has to bet a horse called "Curler" because she had her hair set that day, don't interfere. If a guy says he's betting the 10 horse because his birthday is the 29th and two and nine make 10, don't challenge his arithmetic. As a case in point, I give you Willie Shoemaker. "Willie the Shoe." as he is known to the racing fraternity, has lo be one of the greatest jockeys of all time. His mounts already have won the second highest total money in history. But now you must stop and consider the case of "WilUc the Shoe" in the race called the Kentucky Derby. This past winter, "Shoe" rode Northern Dancer to victory in the Flamingo at Hialcah and then in the Florida Derby at Gulfstrcam. But like any ordinary racegoer he was taken in by the West Coast performance of a colt called Hill Rise. This despite the fact that a great number of colls which were sensational on western tracks have fallen on their silken muzzles when they reached Churchill Downs. Anyhow, he switched from Northern Dancer to Hill Rise— and lost the Derby on Saturday by a short neck. So he made a mistake. But it wasn't the first time. Just two years ago he had the mount on a colt called Decidedly. So "Willie the Shoe" switched to Sunrise County and finished fifth while Decidedly went on to win. Then, back in 1957, "Shoe" was romping down the Derby stretch to victory on a colt named Gallant Man when he misjudged the finish line, started to pull up his horse, and then realized that they hadn't gone under the wire. He finished second to Iron Liege. The beneficiary of the action, strangely enough, in all three cases was none other than Bill (don't call me Willie) Hartack. Those three gifts from Willie to Bill, along with a Derby triumph which Hartack scored on Venetian Way in 1960, now have made Hartack the second leading winner among jockeys in Derby history. Hartack has won four times in six Derby starts, finishing second with Fabius in 1956 and 13th aboard Easy Spur in 1959. Only the immortal Eddie Arcaro, with five victories, is ahead of him. And, while he had to have the horse under him, Hartack won this one with a heady ride and a pair of eyeballs that had to be swiveling atop his head like the red blinker on the roof of a police car. "I kept an eye on Mr. Brick and The Scoundrel. «ho seemed to be nmning the best in front of us," he said. "But I also kept an eye on Hill Rise behind us." Shoemaker still may have had the best horse. But all you can believe is the way they finished and the feeling in this comer is that Hartack "stole" it by making a quick, une.xpect- ed move when the pack fled into the far turn and began to swing for home. "He got a little far away from us at the head of the stretch," Shoemaker admitted later. "We were getting to him slowly but I felt we weren't going to get there when we passed the eighth pole." "Shoe" simply got started a bit late. But it's interesfing that in all three errors of judgment, HarUck has come up smelling like roses.
