' A r k a n s a s Coach Frank Broyles, a two-time tournament winner was in hot pursuit of the leader, firing twin 38's lor an opening round 75. Broyles was followed by Houston Coach Bill Yeoman who shot a 37 on the tront side but dipped lo a 40 on the back for a 77. "I wish this was i otic-day tournament." laughed Martin, who has finished third in two previous coaches' tournaments. Martin said he thought that anything under 150 should win the SB-hole event. Texas Coach Darrcl Royal, another two-lime winner, and Lavell Edwards ot Brigharn Young, were tied at 78. Dave Smith of Southern Methodist earned a 79. Koyal said he hit the ball well, but didn't make any putts. "I lost four shots in two holes at No. 18 and No. 1," he added. "1 was scrambling."

Cin! 16; By GRANT HALL TIMES Sports Writer HOT SPRINGS -- After Frank Broyles completed his first nine holes at the DeSoto golf course here Monday, he said to no one in particular, "I played well enough to be hvo under par." And he did. But instead he was two over par. Besides missing three-foot par putts on the first and ninth hole, Broyles failed to capitalize on three birdie putts of 15 feet less. He hit eight straight greens on regulation after underclubbing on the f i r s t hole. Broyles' score was of particular interest, what with the late withdrawal of defending champion Steve Sloan. With the Vanderbilt coach absent, most observers made Broyles the favorite: Beginning al. number 11. however, Broyles missed five straight greens. Included in that stretch of holes were four missed fairways, three shots in the sand t r a p and one tooth kick off the lee. The swing which had worked so beautifully for ten holes was no where to be found. "You think this isn't a game of Tcel?' ". Broyles kept asking. "I had it but now it's gone. I'm steering instead ol swinging.' Fortunately for him his short gunie arrived while his long game was on the 'holes'. He saved par on three of the five holes by m a k i n g putts of 15 and six feet and chipping to wilttin six inches. Broyles finally righted him self on the three finishing holes, making regulation pars on each, and finished with another wo over par 38 for a 76. Tli vas bettered in the coaches division only by Ben Martin': 73. "I can't play any better, 1 said the A i r Force Academ; coadl. "These greens are s great that 1 made five birdies plus a lot of par putts. I'm normally not that good a put cr." He added, "It's amazing low quickly this coiu'se ha rebounded from tlie storm dam age -- it shows what sunshine little rain and a lot of work can do." M a r t i n has played in eigh ircvious coaches tournaments .wice finishing third. "Once wa at Cherokee Village and th other time was at Bella Vista and I didn't get a prize eithe Lime for that." Asked wha score he thought it would taki Lo win this lime, tic said, "Any thing under 150." Broyles predicted 148 wouli win after he played three holes "We're allowed lo drop out o the sand traps, because of th water in them," he explained Garvey. LA, 16. TRIPLE--Giirr, A.Oliver. Pgh. 6.

Burieson Signed SEATTLE -- The Seattle Su- pernnics of the National Basketball Association signed first- round draft choice Tom Bur- ieson. the 7-fool-4 center from North Carolina Slate, to a [ive year contract. In addition, l i e s could be improved anywhere a n d a putts inside .the leather wer 'gitmnics'. The Broyles-Marlin rivalr did not begin this week, no will it end here. The two playe football against each othc when A l a r t i n was at Navy an Broyles at Georgia Tecb. No year Air Force will open it s e a s o n against Arkansas "We're looking forward to and hope lo schedule Arkansa again,' said Martin. "This wi be tlie first time a service ac? demy has every played in thi part of the country." Lurking behind Martin Broyles were Bill Yeoman Darrell Royal who shot 77 an 78 respectively. Y e o m a n round was highlighted by a yard hole-out for a birdie tbrc on the fifth hole. Royal, who started on th hack nine, made 14 pars, tv, bogies and two double bogio lie went five over par on Lhree hole stretch, doub bogeying the 18th and firs holes and bogeying the seconr "I had a flip wedge lo the grcc on number IS and hit it in II: water, f only hit about six ii dies behind the ball." He continued, "I've played betlcr arid I've played worse. But I came here to have a good time, and I've taken care of that part of it. These folks are tremendous hosts, and have Then Royal took a moment answer for the umpteenth me the question of whether oosevelt Leaks will play for exus next fall. "Trouble lat these people who are laking statements about Leaks ren't qualified to make them, doctor Jerry Julian, an ortlmpc surgeon who operated or caks, says there's not enough me to rehabilitate Ihe knee or 1974. Roosevelt is sayiu; c's fjoing to play, but every uccessful athlele thinks he can .ay the next Saturday." One guy who won't m i s s J eaks is Jerry Waggoner, yed-in-the-wool Texas AM an who's sports editor of the iryan Eagle. After hilling rranl lee shot Monday, Waggo muttered. "That's what I et for using an orange tee." W a g g o n e r played wilh Broyles and nolccl, "1 couk ever get over being tense ccause he lakes the game so eriously. I'm not used to laying wilh the big boys." Lou Hollz of North Carolina i t a I e, another of Broyles' laying partners was less ner- 'ous; for o n e thing, he nevei it wood all day. "I figure thai iuce my job doesn't depend on I, golf is for fun,' he said 'It's no fun lo lose balls am can't keep them in play with my woods so I go with the one rou." Despite such prudence Holt/ still managed lo f i n d deep I ·ough a few limes. "1 always onnd my ball," he said. "But losl more clanged cigars after * set them down in the rough." ,ess believable was his claim hat he lost his puller in a growlh of heather. Kansas Slale coach Vince Gibson lost his puller another \\' a y : "I'll apologue for .browing that thing, but after the 15th three-putt green, I just couldn't stand it any longer." When Broyles babied a few putts on the front nine.hosl lohn Cooper admonished him: "Quite playing 6afe; that's not your game." To .which an irrc- /erant byslander whispered. "It is in football." In the media division the leader is Larry Guesl of Orlando, Florida with a 74. That convor- ,ed to a 71 under the Galloway system, which is more complicated than a slide rule and mpossiblc lo explain. No one icre even wants to learn it. Least of all Tulsa's Steve Za- iriskie who was married Saturday afternoon and is honeymooning here. Zabriskic, w h o 'lad never broken 110 on n golf course, went out Monday and shot a 91. ndo Sentinel-Star posted a 74 defense of his championship. e held a four-shot lead over e earlier finishers. Joe Eason. president of the stro-Blue Bonnet Bowl, shot a or the lead in the special icst division. Under the rules of the tourna- *nt, called the Galloway Sys- m, each golfer is allowed to educt part of his final score lo termine his net score. The sorer his score, the more he ay deduct. Here are the scores of some the coaches for the first und, with the net listed after -- 80 (74).
