Annual Robinson ROBINSON, 111. (UPI) -Once again they are asking: Can a little Southern Illinois town of 7,200 survive as a stop on the PGA tour? This is the sixth year of the annual "Golf Classic'' in this remote town, li5 miles east of St. Louis and about 200. miles south of Chicago. Each year skeptics predict hardly anyone will come artil Robinson will vanish from the PGA scene, it is particularly bad this year, they argue, because the tourney dates clash with the hallowed British Open. But Robinson i9 a fooler. Not only is it back, but bigger than ever. The purse is up to $125,000 this year, $25,000 more than last, and for the first time the Shriners have hooked, tip with Robinson. This year it will be called the Shrine-Robinson Open Golf Classic and proceeds will go to Shriner hospitals for crippled children. When golfers tee up for the pro - am today some of the nation's top corporate executives, many of them members of the Shrine, will be playing with a full field of 150 professionals. Register-Mail SPORTS • •t Galesburg, 111., Wednesday, July 11, 1973 Page 33 There is no Nicklaus, Trevino or Palmier, but Robinson has most of the top players not entered in the British Open. They include from the current top 20 money winners, Homero Blancas, Jim Colbert, Charles Coody, Jerry Heard and Bob Dickson. Gfier Jones, the 1072 winner, is back along with well-known names like George Archer, Frank Beard, Lee Elder, Bobby Nichols, Bob Rosburg. Two Illinois natives, Bob Goalby and Jim Jamieson also are entered. The crowds through the tournament conclusion Sunday are expected to total nearly a match for the entire population of Crawford County—33,000 people. The Robinson tournament, which was started by golf addicts in the Health' family, makers of candy bars by that name, has a unique history. Not only is Robinson probably the smallest, town on the tour, it is the only tournament to be decided in sudden death playoffs in the last four years. It also is the only PGA event which had at least one round rained out in three of the last four years—but that was when it was played in late September instead of July. The Robinson Country Club course is a relatively short 4,556 yards, par 71. But it demands accuracy or "it will jump up and get you," club pro Tom Tantnall says. Miller Is Confident of Winning By ROGER SARGENT TROON, Scotland (UPI) Johnny Miller, 26-year-old US. Open champion, tees off today in the 102nd British Open confident he can repeat his success of last month at Oakmont, Pa. "I'm relaxed and had a good practice round today," Miller said Tuesday. "I'm still mentally in tune and I think I can do well." But Miller's dreams of a double face stiff opposition from fellow U.S. stars Lee Trevino and Jack Nicklaus, both of whom stand poised on the brink of golfing history. Trevino, winner of the last two British Opens at Royal Birkdale in 1971 and Muirfield last year, seeks a victory that will make him only the second man this century to win the British championship three years in succession. And Nicklaus, winner of the British Open in 1970 at St. Andrews and 1966 at Muirfield, seeks a record-breaking 14th major tourney victory. But, a field of .the world's greatest golfers apart, all three must also beat Troon, the windswept west Scottish coast course which last hosted the British Open 11 years ago when Arnold Palmer established a British Open record with a dazzling 276. Troon, a 7,064-yard, par-72 of ' switchbacked gorsc and sand traps, Tuesday snapped back at both Nicklaus and Miller. The two blonde Americans fell victim to Troon's 8th hole, the 126-yard "postage stamp" a cunningly devised green surrounded by five sand traps and a deep drop on two sides. Tuesday he ballooned Jus tee shot yards over the tiny green and said wryly: "I just didn't realize it was that short."

Buddy always had the good tools." Monday night Bradford singled and scored the winning run in a ninth inning rally for a 4-3 win over the New York Yankees. Tuesday night the Sox won 2-1 and Bradford scored Chicago's first run and then batted in the winning run, collecting Angels 9 Stanton Rips 3 Homers By United Press International There's something about hitting three homers in one game that is leaving American" Leaguers speechless this year. Lee Stanton became the second player in the league to do it this season when he clouted three against the Baltimore Orioles to give the California Angels a 10-8 victory in 10 innings and tie seemed so two of the three hits the Sox could make off Yankee pitcher Lindy McDaniel, starting a game for the first time since 1967. "That's what I'm supposed to do," Bradford said. "There was no pressure on me because I'm trying to get a hit every time I bat." Bradford's single in the fifth turned into Chicago's first run when he reached second on an;went deep into center field to error by Bemic Allen on Ed;haul in a long fly by Ron Blom- Hermnann's ground ball, i berg. advanced on a sacrifice and scored on Eddie Leon's infield force-out. In tire sixth Bradford singled in the winning run after Bill Melton and Ken Henderson had walked. Bradford also made the standout catch of the game when he "Blombcrg's ball probably would have been out of the park if the wind hadn't been blowing in," winning pitcher Stan Bahn- scn said. "I knew the wind was blowing in and he did what I wanted him to do, hit to center, field."

"Well, it just felt good, that's all," he said, "what I'm trying to do is get myself in a groove. Everything just felt right tonight." Stanton had just six RBIs all season coming into the game but he drove in five more runs in the game to boost his total to 11. He wound up 4-for-5 in the game as he also collected a single. Two of the homers and a single were off Jim Palmer and the two-run blast .that won the game in the 10th inning was a shot off Eddie Watt. | In other American League action, Boston downed Minnesota, 2-1, Chicago edged New York, 2-1, Detroit nipped Texas, 5-4, Kansas City topped Mil WARM TOMORROW Time to Insulate WHITE'S PHONE 342-0185 wauked, 5^, and Cleveland defeated Oakland, 7-5.
