(AP) — Steve Strieker's rise to pro golfs pe&k two years ago came amid the anticipation and excitement of bi» followers. His enauing fall drew whispers and wonderment from that same flock. Strieker has regained his footing and this week continue;* his quiet > climb back toward his 1996 form at The Olympic Club in San Francisco by playing in his fifth U.S. Open. Although he often felt uncomfortable with the attention, the Edgerton native remembers what it was like to be mentioned a> a contender for an event like this and has used the memory to get his name — and his game — back STRfCKER into the limelight. "In one respect, it's nice that hone of the attention is placed on me at all," Strieker said before leaving for the Open. "On the other end of it, it burns me that I was up there at one point; then went down to the bottom last year and now I'm starting to fight my way back up there." Strieker has enjoyed two top-10 finishes in three starts since switching to a TaylorMade driver with a metal head and a regular shaft before the Byron Nelson Classic, which started May 17. After switching endorsement deaU last year, Strieker searched for a combination of the company's bubble-shafted driver* with titanium heads and never found the right fit for him. "I bnven't hit a bubble-shafted driver since I started using one of their old metal heads," said Strieker, whc*« tumble from No. 4 in earnings in 1996 ($1.3x8 million) to No. 130 in 1997 ($167,552) was linked to the equipment change, Ontonagon golf coach modest about success RONTRETHEWEY Globe Correspondent ONTONAGON — Dennis Morin, Ironwood native, has had a more than successful career as coach of the.girls and boys golf teams at Ontonagon High School. Recently, the Detroit Free Press described some of his and his teams' achievements. DesprU? leading the boys to seven Upper Peninsula titles and the girls to 16, Morin knows a good deal of hw success was built on the hard work and achieve- r/Bftit of others. "When I took over in 1977, they already rind a successful program here under Lou Gregory," Morin said "Lou knew a jfrt-nt deal alxMit golf and fit about that time, the Strong boys (sonn of Dr. Jamf* und Flo«i«ie Strong, both accomplished golfers) wt-r* beginning to make their presence Ml. "] think Jim had two or thre* of the Strong* and I h»d JsfT.

"Of course, Tom Strong, who was chairman of the Greater Milwaukee Open, is one example of how some of our golfers have succeeded." Morin has a simple philosophy of teaching golf. "I used to subscribe to and read, various magazines, but the more I read, the more technical the game became and the more confused I got," he said. "I think it comes down to fitting four or five busies down and then practicing and working at them until they become nearly instinctive. "For example, there ar« ba<«ic approach** to teaching the gamp, such «* th* correct fundamental*! of jrnp, »t»nc«. addreiM, tempo and rhythm." h* added "The. b*«;t »pprr>«/:h i« to try to keep it aim- pje " Monn f**!s you can't rr>mp«r« hi* »u<:re«* M » crxn'h with « lot of i^'.lf ro«ch*a). m the rnor» poptj- Strieker still ranks low in driving distance (73rd) and driving accuracy (139th), but feels his re^ cent change is starting to pay dividends. He has been able to offset what problems he has off the tee with solid play on and around the green, ranking ninth in putting (1.72 putts per green), 15th in sand saves (60.4 percent) and 26th in a category callexl scrambling (63.6 percent). "It's just not for me," he said of the titanium driver. "I don't know if it's the size of the head or what. I went to one of their original (gold) metal heads and started to drive it a little better and got more confidence with the driver. That spilled over into my iron play." Firing at the pins on close to all cylinders, he has improved his standing on the money list. He ranks 37th entering the Open with $384,055, already making this his third-best year in five seasons on the PGA Tour. In addition, he is showing signs of the old Strieker — if, at age 32, there can be such a thing — with his steady play on a weekly basis. He has made 13 of 14 cuts and enjoyed six top-25 finishes, shades of his first three seasons when he made the cut in 61 of 71 starts and registered 29 top-25 finishes, including two victories. "I'm doing things I did well in 1996 nnd '95 and '94," Strieker said. Range Girl* Softball — JHIM Ik Iroavood Hurt*y Rotary 19, Jamea div«r ». On* Hour PhoU IB.
