galisbufg RdaistCf«Mail> GalesbufQ, HI Mefidav, July 30, II 9 -Lity Posts 12-Stroke Bob Dredge Is Second ByJOEMORRISSEY (SporU Editor) if there WAS a contest in the final round of the AtttUty Golf Tournament, it was not tor first place. that's because Bab Coe Jr. completely dominated things as he coasted to his fourth city championship in five years. Haying four rounds of con- sisrtent vgolf, the hard-Mitittg Coe led all the way as he recorded a (Minder par 281 to win the All-City championship by a total of 12 strokes. The 12 strokes was the widest margin of victory in the 16- year history of the tournament. The previous high was seven by Coe in 1970. Not that he needed much help, but Coe credited Larry Lowery, pro at Lake Bracken, and former tournament winner Dave Lundstrom, now assistrnt pro ait Sunkist Country Club in Biloxi, Miss., with giving him tips that attributed to his dominating play. "Davey helped me out with my wedge, and Larry spotted something f was doing wrong in putting last week at Bracken," Coe explained. In the final round Sunday, Coe thwarted any ideas the rest of the field might have had by firing a 3-under par 69 and won going away. Bob Dredge, Mime winner of the All-City was 73 for the day Sunday and finished in second place with a 293. It was the second year that he has been runner-up. Defending champion Jim Wetherbee was still in the running for the title until he took a 7-over par 79 in the third round at Soangetaha Saturday. Wetherbee came back strong with a 3-under 69 Sunday at Bunker Links, finishing with a 296 in third place. . There were three 69s fired in the lihail round yesterday and one of them was by young Bill KirkendaM who tied with Sam Swan son at 299 for fourth place. Swanson ended with a 1-under 72 at Bunker Links Sunday. Bill Fox, who was running second to Coe at the hallway point, just five strokes cuff the pace, had his troubles at Lake Rice Saturday when he fired a 13-over par 85. * Fox came back with a 75 Sunday, but wound up with a 306 and a tie for ninth place. Coe had a 1-under par 71 at Soangetaha Saturday but he and other golfers said that the Has Near Miss Bill KirkendaU's second shot on No. 18 at Bunker Links Sunday just misses, stopping at the lip of the cup. He had a birdie three on the hole. Plan Testimonial For Dave Parker There will be a testimonial dinner held for Dave Parker, (ialesburg's young superstar of tennis. The dinner is scheduled for Aug. 29 at the Holiday Inn. Parker won the 1973 Illinois High School tennis title this spring and recently rocketed into national fame with a victory in the National Inter- schoolastic Tennis tournament Like a ^ooci neighbor, State Farm is there. with help for your CM hume life and health iibuidilte See me. STATS f At* INSUI*NC| STATE FARM Insurance Companies Home Offices: Bloomlngton, Illinois BUD NELSON J43-U39 929 N. Henderson held at Durham, N.C. A member of the 1973 graduating class of Galesburg Senior High School, Parker was recently honored in Sports Illustrated's Faces in the Crowd section, following his triumph at the Duke University campus in Durham, where he handily won the National Interschoiastic Championship. Recruited literally by hundreds of colleges and universi- t'ts as the most highly-regarded college prospect of the year, Parker decided upon UCLA, a school which has spawned such ter.nis talent as Arthur Ashe. Parker will be the only recruit entering the UCLA tennis program this year. Ranked as one of the top players in his age grouping the past few years, Parker had been favored to win the Illinois High School Association's singles crown in 1972, but he was thwarted in a tough semifinal match. The oddson favorite to take the title this year, he dominated the state meet as no player had since the days of Marty Riessen. Speaking at the Dinner will be Dick LeFebvre, tennis coach at Southern Illinois University. Ticket information may be obtained at WGIL Radio or the Tennis Pro Shop at Lakelawn Swim and Tennis Club in Galesburg. Other ticket outlets will be announced later. course was playing unusually tough despite the fact that it was In good condition. "The course was playing exceptionally tough with a strong wind out of the west," Coe said. It was the fourth win in the last five years for Coe who had a string of three straight titles going before Wetherbee dethroned him last year. Wetherbee won with a 280 Jscore, 11-under par, and this tied him for the record with Coe. The big 1973 champion missed by one stroke of (matching this mark again this year. The 16th annual 72-medal play tournament is co-sponsored annually by the Galesburg Register-Mail and radio station WGIL. Coe never gave his challengers much of a chance, jumping off to a 4-stroke lead with a 69 in the first and qualifying round at Bunker Links and playing steady golf the rest of the way. Oddly enough the only trouble he had in the entire tournament came on the back nine at Lake Bracken, his home course. iBut this came after a good front [side and was so minor that it didn't open anything up for his opponents. With Coe leading by five at the halfway point, most observers felt that the only hope for the rest of the field was to have him falter in third round play at Lake Rice. As it turned out most of the rest of the field faltered, but Coe didn't. The 1-under 71 he had under tough conditions may have been his best effort of the tournament. After the Saturday round, Coe was sitting on an 8-stroke lead and, as most people expected, it was little more than a formality in the final round Sunday. To add insult to injury, Coe chipped in a couple on the back side — one for a birdie ion No. 12 and one for an eagle on No. 16. Both came after Coe dropped when his ball came to rest in a ground-under-repair area. Wetherbee made the biggest charge in the final round, but after his middle rounds of 75 and 79, his 69 at Bunker was of no avail. Golfers were presented with gift certificates and trophies at soecial awards ceremonies held at Holiday Inn immediately following the tournament. Presentations were made by Roger Coleman, WGIL station manager. Bob Coe Jr.. 69-72.71-69—281. Bob Dredge. 75-72-73-73—293. * Jim Wetherbee. 73-75-79-69—296. Sam Swanson, 74-74-80-71—299.
