Republic photo bv Kevin Scofield The Valley High Girls Golf Association wound .up its season with this talented threesome in championship finals. Julie Stanger, left, defeated 'Sandy Borg, center, in Friday's title duel at Camelback Country Club and Tanya Taylor won the nine-hole division in playoff. Stanger nips Borg, 1 up, for golf title In a seesaw match that wasn't settled until the 18th green, 16-y e a r -o I d Julie Stanger edged Sandy Borg by a 1-up margin Friday in win- ning the annual Valley High Girls Golf Association championship at Camelback Country Club. Julie, from Central High, More about Palmer faltering Continued from Page D-l Irwin, a 28-year-old who has been a regular on the pro ; tour for six years, had a very 1 solid effort. "It was an ex, tremely steady round," he ; said. "It all blended in together pretty well." He missed cnly two fairways and one green and didn't have a bogey as he ; made a bid for his first victory since the 1971 Heritage Classic. ' • Irwin made a 10-footer for '. a duece on his second hole, punched short-irons' within 18 inches on two other birdie holes and chipped up to six : inches for an easy save on ^the only green he missed on ' 'the front nine. He pulled in front alone with birdies- 'on two.of his last three holes, one with an eight-foot putt and the other with a 10-footer on his final hole. The tight little layout yielded some extremely low scores, but the best was a sparkling, seven-under-par 64 by Leonard Thompson, a second-year pro from Wake Forest. He-had a 141 total. made the turn 1-up over her rival and then won the 10th hole before Sandy rallied. The Arcadia High graduate won 13, 14 and 15—latter with a 25-foot par putt—and took the lead, only to have Julie win the 16th hole and square the match. 'They bothparred. the short 17th and then Miss .Sfanger snatched the title on the par-5 18th, twoputting from 45 feet for a winning par as her opponent took four shots to 'reach the green. It marked two consecutive runnerup endings for luckless Miss Borg, second-place finisher in the recent state junior championship. Becky Winslow beat Barbara Bueter, 5-4. in championship consolation finals and Tanya Taylor defeated Patty Stewart for the nine- hole division title, winning a one-hole playoff, after they tied at 212 for 36 holes.

F o 11 o w i n g an afternoon meeting With the New York Yankee outfielder, Kuhn announced the fine in the following statement: "I met this afternoon with Bobby Murcer regarding his recent statements about President Cronin and myself. He apologized for his remarks, In light of the apology, I have limited! the fine to $250." But Murcer, asked prior to the Yankees' game against the Indians- and Perry-Friday night whether he had .apologized, replied, "We had just lost a close game which I felt we should have won. I told him a lot of things are said in the locker room after'you've lost a close game." He then repeated his charge that Perry uses a foreign substance on the ball, and that the American League umpires are doing nothing to stop him. "Yes, Perry throws grease- balls," Murcer declared. "It doesn't look like a forkball or a fastball, it's got to be a greaseball. The pitch comes in real fast and it just drops. "I have felt substance on the ball I don't think'the umpires want to feel the substance on the ball." Then he explained, "Most of the time'when the umpires look at the ball, they're looking for scuff marks or dirt on the ball. They're just not looking for a clear substance." Asked about him meeting with Kuhn, Murcer said, "We had a discussion about the comment I made to the papers in Cleveland. I wasn't told not tft discuss the matter. He just said I ought to be a little more discrete }n my comments. "No, I don't think I de- ser.ved the fine, but I can't deny the fact that I made the statement." Do many pitchers throw spitters or greaseballs? "Yes, Perry's not alone in throwing it," Murcer said. "S i n c e he's been in the league, there's been an u> creasing number of pitchers in the league trying V? thjnw it. '^ .."It looks liko :;'s been legalized They don't allow us to use "> illegal bat, I don't think !(.'& right for a pitcher to use an illegal pitch. Anything illegal should be stopped. "You got to be lucky to hit* that pitch. It's the most diffi^ cult pitch in the world to hit'.' If they legalize it, we'll all te hitting .250." Murcer made his charges after New York's 4-2 loss to Perry at Cleveland Monday night. Perry, the A m e r i c a.'.n League's Cy Young 'Award winner when he compiled a 24-16 record and a 1.92 earned run average, came to the Indians before the 1972 season from the San Francisc-o Giants. with $30,000 to $20,000'to third..
