Birmingham's 8-0 walloping of Little Rock left the Barons only one game behind Chatanooga. Four days ago, the Lookouts had a four-game edge.

Little Comes Through in Open Play By JERRY LISKA Associated Press Sport* Writ*? BIRMINGHAM, Mich. (AP) — Pro golf's roaming tribe will be led by newly crowned U.S. Open champion, Gene (The Machine) Littler, into the $30,000 Western Open starting Thursday at Grand Rapids, Mich. Replacing South African Gary Player, the leading PGA money- winner, and faltering Arnold Palmer—still second in the cash list—(he 30-year-old Littler will be the man in the spotlight in this shift of the golf warpath from eastern to western Michigan. Besides the tremendous prestige Littler acquired in his 281 triumph in the 61st National Open at tricky Oakland Hills course Saturday, he also vaulted from 34th to fourth place in the PGA money list. Littler's one-stroke victory in a thrilling photo finish was worth $14,000—hiking his year's' earnings to $21,866. Player, who finished the Open in a three-way t|e for ninth at 287, continues as top official money-winner with $53,70i. Palmer, who now has; been knocked off the Master's'.[throne —by Player in April — and unseated as U.S. Open king by the losing three of four to Atlanta, pleads to Macon. The Vols are tied for fourth plarc with the slumping j Little Rock Travelers, whoj open a scries at Mobile. i '; rejuvenated Littler, picked up $900 for Ms three-way tic for 14th at 289, to hold second in the cash race at $45,585. Palmer started too late with too little, after rounds of 74-75, to match the roaring finish from seven strokes off the pace which gave him the 1960 U.S. crown at Denver's Cherry Hills with a closing 65 for 280 Only other cash-collector ahead of Littler in the PGA lucre sweepstakes now is Doug Sanders, the man who didn't make it in Saturday's, hectic closing open double- round. Sanders had a 14-foot birdie piitt rim the 71st hole and trickle a foot away which cost him a possible tie with Littler and notched him second with Bob Goalby at 282. Sanders' $6,000 take gave him a 1961 total of $35,531." In seven previous opens, Littler had won a total of only $6,880. Long regarded as a fine mechanical player, -Littler floundered for several years trying to improve his grip and backswing. He attributed some of his success in his 73-68-72-68 Open conquest to a tip from fellow pro Ted Kroll. "Ted suggested, before the tournament, that 1 swing a little more upright and direct," said Littler, ."I was swinging to flat and hitting the ball'in the neck."
