We all know Bill Holstead and you aren't him are you trying to prove fella? We stand for this nonsense get out of here!" Not too often though does an instance occur when a well-known sports figure has virtually the same name as an obscure sports writer And when that is a bet strange things can happen Which is why this writer is going into hiding Friday Why Friday? Because that's the day the Sweetwater Men's Partnership Golf Tournament opens sporting an entry list of most of the top amateur swatters in North Central and West Texas One of them is some nut from Wichita Falki who has the audacity to call himself Bill Halstead Now trying to trade on such a name will get him practically nowhere I can assure him But let the record show that he like me is stuck with it in one form or another so he is forgiven Bill Holstead of Wichita Falls is a top-notch golfer who was a high school standout and has carved several tournament victories there the dissimilarity ends He is I believe 23 as is this writer He is somewhat lanky as is this writer He is right-handed in golf as is this writer And his reputation can be a real nuisance when you are on his as it were Trying to make way around Wichita Falls while saddled with such a name is a sad experience believe me I got the full treatment about the time I was a sophomore in high school My Dad had to go to Wichita with the number of teurnrnentf won In parentheses a Carol Mann (7) 832200 Kathy 1 Whitworth (4) 829675 Sandra!

Yeah well you must be petty good from all I read in the papers Step up and belt one and show us how done" No sir 1 wasn't about to make a fool of myself One swing and know I their hometown hero REAL fast And then the fun would begin all over again Meekly I lied that I was waiting for some friends to show up So the group teed off without me and I stormed into the clubhouse just who the heck is this Bill Holstead I fired at the attendant With a benign look he informed me that the young man was one of the better amateur golfers in the area and then ticked off a lengthy list of his accomplishments "Say he should be out here in a while you could meet him if you stick around your name by the way?" i Baidak AFB winner of last work's district tournament 145'split its first two games 74-74-11 in the SAC Command softball tournament at Dyess Tuesday night After clobbering Grand Forks AFB 11-1 Barksdale fell to i Castle AFB of California 2-1 7373-145 carjy Wednesday morning In other games Goose AFB of Labrador bumped off Ramey 2-1 and Ramey dropped Grand lto 14 Omaha Jim Shade Norfolk Neb At Tulsa Okla Mike Norman Tulsa Bob Karlovich Tulsa Doug Tewell Stills Iwater Carter Ham Ft Sill Okla At Memphis Ttnn Bobby Greenwood Cookeville Tenn Steve Llphlman Memphis At Creve Coeur Me James Holtgrieve St Louis Gerald Sctirelber Evansville Ind Richard Dalton Forks 7-1 150 150 Two Dyess players picked up St Louis James Greber 150: by Barksdale for SAC James St Louis At Port Huron Mich tournament led trie Louisiana 151 1 base to its victory over Grand Forks Virt Peterson hurled a nifty five hitter while holding 737-142 Qramj fqj-Jjj 0 a ione fi 7372-144 inning run and Wolfgang Mich Orchard Lake Chuck Knscls Red Run Mich Christian Klin exas Amateurs Led by Rogers cedarhurS! ny Halbig j0 145! homered to drive to two runs to 1-77-145 lead a 13 hit attack Four games are on tap Wed nesday in the Olympic style round-robin tournament with two games scheduled to complete action Thursday afternoon John French Bloomfield Hills Mich Ted Talbot 7372-14 Sarnia Mkh Al Columbus Ohio Dale Morey 70-73-143 High Point NC Jack Hosier Columbus Ohio Bob Bourne Oherlin Okie Frill Schmidt By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The Texas qualifying champion for the Amateur Golf Championship in Columbus Ohio Aug 28-30 is Hamilton Rogers of Corpus ChristL Rogers carved out a six-under par Tuesday over the par 72 Lubbock Country Club The other Lubbock qualifier was Robert McKinney who shot Dallas qualifiers were Chip Stewart Jr of Dallas Rik Massengaleof Jacksboro Bob Rawlins of Dallas Don Brown of Dallas Ed Hopkins of Dallas and John Boh-mann of Dallas Hopkins had to birdie the first hole of a swatfest with David Turner of Fort Worth and Tom Kite of Austin Turner who shot 72-76-148 and Kite who had were named alter nates Three golfers qualified Monday In Houston at the par 71 Sharpstown Country Club Floyd Addington of Jasper Tex had a 138 which was four-under par John Paul Cain of Houstor with a 140 and Tommy Cruse of Houston with 1 141 also quail tied Imagine!
