16 Goltskurg Register -Mall* GalMb+jra, HI,Monday, Sept,. 16 f 1963 Dick Sikes Finds Bright, NewWorldin U.S. Amateur Year's Eve all wrapped up in one for this ihreadbar young man from a broken home whose mother had struggled valiantly to raise a brood of nine children. Sunny For SIkcs Gray clouds scudded low over the Wakonda Club course as he teed it up against Deane Beman, a silver-spoon 25-year-old Irom the Maryland Country Club set who once before had possessed the U.S. title in addition to the British Amateur crown but it was sunny and bright for the drawling young man from the Arkansas hill country. "1 couldn't think of much except that here I was in the finals of the Amateur," he recalled tie of his own. Beyond his wild- 1 Saturday evening after it all had est expectations, he had reached! ended. "Then 1 tried to shut lhat the finals of the Amateur that out and think only of my game." Little won back to back in 1934 Stalking through the gloom that and 1935. i finally was dispersed by a warm It was Christmas and New I sun, Sikes had the dream within £ (Reg. U.S. Pat. Off.) By OSCAR FRALEY UPI Sports Writer DES MOINES, fowa (UPD- For seven and one-half hours, young Dick Sikes was in a bright new world all to himself. The Dodgers and the Cardinals were battling tooth and nail for the National League pennant. Football was getting under way across the nation and 1,800 miles away in a San Francisco hospital Lawson Little, who won the U.S. Amateur golf championship 28 years ago to the day, was fighting for his life. But Sikes, a 23-year-old from the Ozarks, never gave any of those occurrences a thought because he was involved in a bat- his grasp when he went 3 up on Beman on the 13th hole. "I had everything shut out," he said. "I didn't see anything but my shot and what I was trying to do. Everything else faded away." His had been a swift rise, two years from nowhere to the threshold of the crown room which housed golf's mightiest- storied names such as Bobby Jones, Chick Evans, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Gene Littler, Francis Ouimet and the once powerful Little. "I don't follow baseball," said Sikes. "I like football and basketball. But I had everything shut out." Everything, including that bus trip from his native Springdale, Ark., to Wichita in 1961 to visit his sister. And the memory o( the man who saw him playing on a course there and suggested that Mongo Wins UN Handicap R»c Again Mongo showed who was boss on the $125,000 United Nations Handicap for the second straight year when he whipped nine rivals including Never Bend and Carry Back in the Atlantic City grass course classic. Kelso, who is a lead pipe cinch for an unprecedented fourth consecutive horse of the year title unless he's stopped in the next few weeks, looked unbeatable when he bombed his opposition in the $100,000 Aqueduct Stakes on Labor Day. A meeting of the top horse echelon may be forthcoming at Aqueduct Sept. 28. in the $100,000 Woodward Stakes at VA miles, the final 18 holes and closed i The 6-year-old Kelso has made he try to qualify for the National Public Links championship. Wasn't In The Cards Sikes did, and, carrying his own bag at Detroit, won it. And won it again last year — as well as getting scholarship to the University of Arkansas and repaying them with the national collegiate championship. He would have been the first man to have won those three crowns, Publinx, Collegiate and U.S. Amateur. But it wasn't in the cards. Beman struck back by winning four holes in the morning with three birdies and a par. Then he pounded out a 2 up margin on Bob Nichols Cops Honors In Seattle Open Tourney Major League Box Scores SECOND GAME MILWAUKEE I ST.

Sikes out, 2 and 1. You might think that the dream had turned into a nightmare. But, for the young man whose family has scratched for its living, it was unbelievable in itself. "After all," he rationalized "not many fellows get this far," It had been a magic carpet trip for a poor kid from the Ozarks. Even the starkness of reality couldn't spoil it for him as he came back to a mundane world. Sport Scribes Pick Wildcats To Win Title CHICAGO (AP) — Northwestern was picked to win the 1963 Big Ten football championship by a group of 25 midwestern sports writers who completed a plane tour of conference camps over the weekend. Northwestern collected 11 first place votes, while defending champion Wisconsin took second place in the balloting with seven top votes. Ohio State was ranked third with four first-place ballots. Illinois, tabbed one of the league's most improved teams, was picked to finish fourth, with Michigan State fifth, Purdue sixth, Minnesota seventh, Indiana and Michigan tied for eighth and Iowa tenth. the Woodward his personal property the last two years. Mongo, owned by the Munt- pelier Farm of Virginia's Marion duPont Scott and piloted by Wayne Chambers, caught Cain Hoy Stable's Never Bend in the late stretch Saturday and won the 1 3-16-mile United Nations by two lengths. Never Bend, who set the pace, took second by three quarters of a length from Mrs. Katherine Price's spunky Carry Back. Chateaugay, who beat the now injured Candy Spots in the Kentucky Derby and the Belmont Stakes, poured on the power near the finish and won the $57,300 Jerome Handicap by one-half length over Colonial Farm's Accordant.

Write to "Penny" Care of Register-Mail "Penny" Appears Every Tuesday and Friday SEATTLE, Wash. (UPI)-Bobby Nichol9 may not be as well known on the professional golf tour as Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus or Julius Boros but he's doing all right. The handsome 27-year-old from Corona, Calif., banked a fat check for $5,300 today as a result of winning the $35,000 Greater Seattle Open golf tournament with a 16-under-par total of 272. That boosted Nichols up to eighth in the money winning list- for the 1963 tour ahead of such illustrious fairway favorites as Gene Littler, Billy Casper and Don January. The six-foot-one 195-pounder has salted away $28,709 so far this year. He was the ninth leading money winner in 1962. Playing Lhe hilly 6,667-yard, par-72 Inglewood Country Club course, Nichols fired four consecutive sparkling rounds — 66-6868-70. Although he fired three birdies in the closing round Sunday, the hole that meant the big difference was the par-three, 204-yard 16th. "I think I won it right there," he said. "I hit my tee shot to the left of the green and didn't make a good chip. But I got a 15-foot putt down for a par and that's what I needed." Another tour unknown, 21-year- old Raymond Floyd of Fayetteville, N.C., and veteran Stan Leonard of Vancouver, B.C., tied for second money of $2,800 apiece with 274. Phil Rodgers, the stocky ex- Marine from Perdido Bay, Fla., dropped a three-iron shot in the cup on the 216-yard eighth hole and walked away with $10,000 for his hole in one. Jack Nicklaus, the 1962 cham» pion at Seattle and the defending titleholder in the $30,000 Portland, Ore,, Open next week, spent the last two days fishing instead of playing golf. He failed'to make the 36-hole cut for only the fourth time in his meteoric career—but he will be on hand next weekend to defend his title at Portland.
