The first of the "designated tournaments." events in which the game's leading players are required to compete, was held just two weeks abo in the Colonial National at Fort Worth, Tex. It was the firsl time the touring professionals had been shipped of their jealously guarded' right to pick and choose their tournaments; they were forced to play or lace penalties up to and including a suspension of their right to play on the tour. Their reactions ranged from enthusiastic acceptance by Lee Trevino to outright rejection by Arnold Palmer, from a "wait and see" attitude by Jack Nick' laus to a change of heart by Tom Weiskopf, once strongly opposed to the plan. Now Gary Player has addec his voice to those who wonder if the new idea is the answer. "1 don't like it," said Player, the little South African who won the Masters and added a second American title in lasl week's Danny Thonias-Mem phis Classic. "When and if they go to 1( designated tournaments, you'd be' locked into your schedule. You'd have no flexibility at all It would be very, very difficul for me."
