To Decisive Birdie At No. 15 Half time Pep Talk Spurs rJlartin By GRANT HALL TIMES Sports Editor HOT SPRINGS VILLAGE -"If I can birdie one of these last four holes, I'll have a chance to win," said Frank Broyles as he stepped up to the sixth tee of the DeSoto Course here Tuesday. Broyles had started his round on Ihe 10th hole and Ben Martin had begun on number one, but the Arkansas coa6h benefited f r o m friendly electric-cart messengers who continually updated him on Martin's progress. On the sixth and seventh holes, Broyles had to be content with pars. He two-putted the par-five sixth from 35 feet and made a saving 15-foot putt on number seven. Broyles, who :akes these tournamenls more seriously than anyone else here, feigned a heart attack and a coughing spell when his 15- Footer curled in. Still alive, he charged over to number eighl and lashed his best fee shot of the tournament on the 485-yard, par-five hole. There was no chance to reach the green in two. because the second shot was uphill and into the wind. But Broyles hit the best shot possible, getting to within 15 yards of the putting surface. The ball was headed right at the pin, and might have finished very close to the hole without the wind. Broyles had gotten up and down from the same distance on the previous hole, but he left himself another 15-foot putt and couldn't make two in a row. "I just didn't want to win it." he said then, scolding himself for the weak chip shot. On the ninth tee, word case that Martin had finished at 151. Broytes had 16 have a two on the 177-yard, par-three hole to tie. But the ninth had been yielding precious few of those -- the pin was placed on the right front part of the green, tucked in behind the lake which distinguishes the hole, FAULT YDIRECTION Broyles had the right distance, but his five-iron shot was 60 feet to the left of Ihe hole. He three-pulled to finish at 153. but he could have six-putted and still been runner-up. His three-putt did cost him a share of second under the Galloway iyslem. Martin was a little surprised o learn he had won by two strokes. "1 thought I needed a jirdie on 18," he said. "When ! left my putt there a half-inch short, I thought it might be over for me." Promotion Takes To The Streets Frailer, Quarry M eet Monday NEW YORK CAP) -- Joe Frazier and Jerry Quarry took to the streets Tuesday to promote their Monday night fight--the one that each thinks will bring him a step closer to the world heavyweight championship. "When I win this fight, I'll be in line for the championship," said Frazier, who lost the title to George Foreman in January of 1973. -"This time 1 think I'll beat Foreman." "I am deadly serious now." said Quarry. "I'm giving boxing the one shot I should have given il earlier. I'm giving it everything I've got now, and if don't win the title I'll know it's just because I don't hpve the ability, no other reason."
