Grant Hall Even Gentle Ben Does It It came as quite a surprise to Bill Brown to wnkc up Wednesday morning as something of a celebrity. He had played for the University of Arkansas golT team Tor four years in relnlivo obscurity, hut an incident at the Southwest Conference tournament in Houston had suddenly changed all that. A reporter saw , Brown break some golf clubs, and wrote something about it. Jack Gallagher of the Houston Post picked up the story and had some f u n with it in a column, which was (hen reprinted in an Arkansas newspaper. Said Brown. "I thought the column was funny, hut it seems ironic t h a t after four years it took something like this for my name and picture to appear in a state paper. 11 Bill would like it known that ho is not really a madman, and that club breaking among good players is hardly unique: "I can't think of a single player, who really cares about the game, that hasn't broken a club. H's only natural that an average player wouldn't do H, because he doesn't know why he hits bad shots. Rut we know why, and so we get mad. "I once saw Ben Crenshaw hit a ball five feet out of the fairway. Ho broke his driver over his knee, while the gallery was applauding what seemed to be a good shot." For Brown, the c!ub- hroaking spree was the culmination of a frustrating college career-." A I w a y s before, there was another t o u r n a m e n t to play in," he said. Rut this lime, 1 knew it wa.s over ami that I hadn't accomplished w h a t I wanted lo." HOT-SHOT JUNIOR Back nt Little Rock Mc- Clcllan High School, he was considered a hot-shot, golfer. "I won the city j u n i o r tournament, and made the quarter finals of Ihe national juniors'," he recalled. "I lost to Bruce Leit?.kn, who later made All-America at the University of Houston. "Then we finished socond in the conference my freshman year here, and I made Ihe top 32 in the NCAA tournament. Ever since then, it's been all d o w n h i l l , We dropped lo t h i r d my sophomore year, fourth last year and seventh this year. "I hit more practice balls this year than in the previous : three put together. I knew 1 'hat college golf was going to be it for me--I'm not in tercsted in golf as a career. So T tried hard and actually q u a l i f i e d number one twice, but F always played number hvo. That really put a damper on my mental altitude." Then he developed back trouble, and couldn't swing a club for two weeks prior to the All-America tournament in Houston. Iti the two tournaments at Houston, neither Brown nor any of his teammates played a good round in the first five days and 9i) holes. But on the f i n a l day of the l e a g u e meet. Brown and Bo Baumcister played together and got it going for Arkansas. Baumeister played the last 27 holes in two over par, and Brown stayed close lo him SPORTS SECTION C FAYETTEVILU, ARKANSAS, SUNDAY, MAY 5, 1974 Leads Homero Blancas By A Stroke for 18 holes with nines o! 39 and 38. ONE UNINTENTIONAL Bill had started the day with 10 clubs in his hag. He normally carries two woods, 10 irons and a putter, but he broke three irons the previous day. One was unintentional, the result of a bad lie against a tree root. He still had nine clubs intact when he got lo the 14th hole, hut broke two after missing a short putt there. Two holes later, he broke the offending putter. "I putted extremely well with a four- iron on the last two holes," lie said. By the lime he got to the clubhouse. Bill had spared only two clubs: his wedge and his roommate's three-wood. He denies reports that he tried lo bvcak the wedge, loo. "When I want to break one, it's broken," he said. "I have a perfect record." Because of that proficiency, I asked if he could supply some helpful hints for the weekend club-breaker. "If you just want to give Ihe club a warning," he said, "spin it horizontally along (he ground. But if it's premeditated breaking, try the vertical-pounding method. Of course, the quickest way is to snap it over your knee. That way, you can put both pieces in your bag and go right on." It's quile possible lliat sonic of Brown's clubs had been weakened from snake-killing "The Bear Creek course where we played Ihe conference tournament is a championship layout, but it's new and still pretty rough," he said. "I killed four colton- mouths, and all of them were in the fairway." NO STUNT Brown concluded. "What I did to those clubs was between Ihe game of golf and me. Tt wasn't a publicity stunt, and I didn't break all [be clubs at once in front of G o d ' a n d country." He also stressed that he gets along well \viih all of his teammates a n d all the conference golfers. "Some of Ihe quotes mntie me look like an idiot," he said. "I'm sure none · of the guys were serious." Brown noted that the Arkansas athletic department had been "nice to me and great to our team. We got lo choose our own tournaments, and they flew us to three of them. If our spring-break period had come at another time, we could have played in San Diego." After his final-round 80 at Houston, Brown said lie was going to quit golf. Asked if he still feels that w a y , he said. "Let's jusl say I'm going lo lake a long vacalion from Ihe game. Right now I'm studying for finals. I hope lo get illy degree in mar- keling this summer, and then find a job with some security. I can a l w a y s fall back on golf as a career if 1 have lo." That ended the interview, except for one little item. I suggested that maybe he and I could play golf sometime. His reply was quick and decisive: "Sure. I'd like to.'" "But what about your clubs?" "Well. I never liked the irons, anyway." Allin Blazes To 63 At Nelson DALLAS (AP) -- Tiny Buddy Ulin blil/ed Preston Trail Golf 3lub with eight birdies for a course-record eight-under-oar 3 Saturday to take a one-shot ead after 54 holes of the Byron s'elson Classic with a 12-under- lar 201 total. The 29-year-old Allin, a deco- "ated Army artillery officer in Vietnam, charged from five shots off the pace lo lap 36-holet eader Jim Simons in the chase for the $30.000 first prize. The wise-cracking Blancas. icro of the middle age set with his bulging midrift, shot a four- under par 67 for a 202 total. He was the leader after the first round on the par 35-36-71 course which plays to 6,957 yards. The 5-foot-9, 135 pound Allin toured the front nine in threc- under 32 and bird led Nos. 8, 9, 10, 15 and 17 for 31 on the incoming nine. The old course record of 64 was stablished bv Kermit Zarley in 1968. Allin, who won the Doral- Eastern Open earlier this year and is in eighth place on the money list with $73,919. fired consecutive 69s before unleashing his birdie barrage. In one stretch, he birdied six of eight holes. Bright sunshine, soft greens, and a light breeze made scoring conditions perfect as Allin negotiated the dangers of While Rock Creek like he was on a pitch-and-putt layout. "You can shoot any course in ow numbers when you have jerfect conditions like this," said AlHn. "The greens were holding perfeclly. "I didn't rcali/e until I heard someone say it on the last bole This is the best round I've ever had on the tour." Allin was two shols ahead of young Tom Watson, who shot a four-under par 67. Watson was at 10-under 203. The streak-shooting Blancas bogeyed the final hole to fall off the sizzling pace set by Allin who has won three tour events in his four years as a pro out of Brigham Young University. Lee Trevino, who shot 66, and Bruce Cramplon, who fired 68, hart nine-under-par-- 204 lolals and were within charging distance for Sunday's final round. Simons stumbled to a one- over-par 72 to fall hack to eight under for the tournament. Allin holed birdie pulls of six. 18, and 12 feet on the front side. He tapped in Uvo six-inchers, holed a 15-foolcr, a two footer and a six-footer on the back side. He missed putts of seven and 10 feet which could have given him an even more incredible 61. There were 35 sub-par rounds Saturday as the pros assaulted Preston Trail like never before. Lanny Wadkfns, t h e defending; champion who did not make the cut, won the t o u r n a m e n t in 1971 with a thi'cc-imclcr-par-277 total. Third round srore.

Jockey Angel Cordero, riding in his fourth Derby, held Cannonade off the pace for the first three-quarters of a mile, then began his move as the field of 23 went into the turn. Midway through the bend, he was almost abreast of Hudson County and at the quarter-pole had the leader hooked. With a *ew strides, he was in front to stay. Olin, with his first Derby vic- ory, collected the winner's share of $274,000, far and away ,he largest p u r s e in the history of the race. It came from a total purse of $326,500. Flip Sal, winner of a division of the Wood Memorial in his ast start before the Derby, failed lo finish after breaking down in the backsiretch. In addition to the large purse, Olin received a $16,000 dia- fiold cup and England's Princess Margaret presented him with an antique silver bowl. been consid- half of the Woody Stephens entry, but he far outshined his stablem^te, Judgcr, when it counted.

He had asked that i C | his horse won, that Lynn Stone, president of Churchill Downs, accept the trophies in his he- lalf. "I just couldn't be happier," Stephens said in the winner's circle flfter the race. "This ·lorsc has done so well." Stephens, GO, had trained six Derby starters in previous races and had seen them finish second, third, fourth and fifth recent years. This one, he said before the race, could "complete my set." "The Derby is an important to you as our English Derby," Princess Margaret said as she made her presentation.

He became the first streaking flagpole sitter. Flagpole sitting was one of the fads of the 1930s just as running around threadbare is the newest college craze. · About 3% hours before the start of the Derby, a youth climbed a flag pole in the infield, in full view of thousands, and proceeded to haul down his slacks and shorts. The crowd watched with delight. He stayed there for about 10 minutes, then put on his clothes and came clown lo the wailing a r m s of iwlice, who were bombarded with beer cans an paper cups as they led htm away to face a $300 fine and possible jail term. During the commotion, anoth er young man attired in his birthday .suit leaped the fence to the north of the pagoda, ran to a flower bed, jumped bncl over the fence and disappears in the crowd.
