A mistake. Perhaps a misquote. He's not mad at the Houston Golf Association. "I don't have any fuss with 99 per cent of the members of the HGA," Hill snid. "I've just got, a fuss with one man." - The stormy. controversia Hill made the comments after a dramatic comeback victory in the f i n a l round Sunday, shooting a severvundcr-par fia for a 276 total and a one-stroke triumph over Sieve Melnyk, Rod Curl and Andy North in the Houston Open. Then he took off at the press. "I don't like to talk to the press." Hill said. "Evcrytime 1 do, it comes out wrong. Evcry- t i m c I do. they cut me. Ol 1 Davey don't have much blood left, They don't hear what I say. They hear what they want to hear." He particularly objected to an article in a local paper and said he'd like to nwet the author. "1 f l u n k e d English and he writes like I do," Hill said, It all centered on comments H i l l marie Saturday. He snid then the only reason he had come to this tournament was "to gel even." He had been refused permission by John Davis, executive director of the HGA, Lo withdraw from this tournament a year ago. He flew inlo town l a t e Wednesday night, took a motel near the airport and said he "got up at five o'clock" to make an early Eec time. "I didn't know where the course was. I lonk a cab. 1L cost me $32, The cab driver couldn't find it either," he said He plnyed one round and. a he is entitled to do, then with drew, "It cost me $500 to play one round of golf," iie said. He came back this year looking for an avenging victory. .It came on a dramatic f i n a l round after he apparently had fallen out of contention with a 74 in Sunday's morning romici. A double round of Sfi holes was forced when Friday's play was rained out. .He played the front nine in the afternoon in 32, four under par. He dropped two birdie pulls of 15 feet, two-pulled for a bi rdic on a pa r-f i vc and chipped close on the other one . Melnyk, Curl and North were one stroke back at 277, Melnyk had a f i n a l 70. Curl and North 69s in the muggy heat. ·HGA President Bill ChapHne. in making the presentation after Hill's victory, h a n d e d him a-chcck and said: VI hope t h i s makes up for the cab fare we owe you." ;Hill looked al" the $.10.000 check and replied: -"Hell, it even makes up for the plane fare."
