Associated Press Writer I LYTHAM St. ANNES, En-gland (AP) -- Tom Weiskopf, the American golf star who used to brood and sulk when things were going wrong, set olt calm and relaxed Wednesday to defend his British Open title. "The man who is going to win over these next four days will be a patient kind of fellow," said the once-explosive Weiskopf from Columbus, Ohio. "I don't worry so much any more, I don't get hung up and I feel ·good," said the man who has yet to win a 1974 tournament but claims his game is sharper than it has been for years. Weiskopf, third favorite o win his second straight Brit- sh championship at bookies odds of 12-1, is a player all the 53 other competitors fear. Tony Jacklin, who became .lie first Briton to win the home championship for 18 years at Lytham in 1969 and went on to add the U.S. Open crown in 1970, picked Weiskopf to repeat his 1973 triumph over the 6.B22 yard, par-71 links here beside the often turbulent Irish Sea. "Tom is playing better than anyone I've ever seen play in practice for a major champion ship," Jacklin said. Weiskopf, 32, shrugged off the complement. "It's nice of Tony to say that," he said, "but if I was picking a winner in ad vance it would have to be Jacl Vicklaus or Lee Trevino." Nicklaus was the 5-1 betting choice for the tille he has won ,wice before. Gary Player of South Africa, hitting the ball better than he's done in a decade, was listed at 8-1 second favorite along with ^rim-featured Johnny Miller of San Francisco, who tops the U.S. money list with $200,000 alter five major 1974 victories. Trevino, the fast-talker from El Paso, was listed at. 10-1 to crash back into the British golf scene/that he dominated as an Open winner at Royal Birkdale in 1971 and Scotland's Muirfield the following year. "I. just hope it rains and keeps cold and the wind blows all day long," said Trevino. I'm one of the few Americans who loves it here in the worst wcalher. "I hit the ball so low that no one can keep up with my company." Weiskopf, nursing a hairline fracture of a bone in his left wrist, was defending his title against doctors orders. Weiskopf said that winning the British Open changed his "It altered my whole outlook: about the game," he said. I used to he mean and moody but I'm not like that any more. "You see, now I know I can win the British Open. "At Tioon last year I finally achieved something important in golf." STRIKING IS TOUGH WORK . . .

Management said it. was ready to meet, but . .. .The striking football players mion said it was ready to meet, but ... And Chicago Tribune Charities, sponsor of the College All- Star Game, said it would held a news conference tonight--9 p.m., EOT--to ., ,,, i^* TM announce the fate of the 1974 contest. An ultimatum had been issued Monday by the agency of the Chicago newspaper giving both sides in the dispute 48 hours to make ironclad assurances that the July 26 All-Slar Game would be played without interference. The old "Alphonse and Gaston" routine, you will recall, is "After you." "No you first.' And so on. That is exactly how the war ring sides sounded in exchanges in the early morning hours today. The National Football League Management Council, bargain ing agency of. the 26 club own ers of the NFL, repeated that i was ready to resume negotia lions and claimed that the NF1 Players Association, whic went on strike July 1, was stall ing. The NFLPA said, in effect the opposite. The union wants managemen to come to the bargaining tabl with 63 counterproposals, ii writing, to the 63 demands th union made when talks brok off some 10 days before th strike started. Managemen says it wants to talk about it. "There will not be any meet ing between the owners and th layers because Jim Scearce, he federal mediator, said he ouldn't assure any kind of leeting except on Friday, so tere won't be a meeting," Ed larvey, the NFLPA executive ircctor, told The Associated 'ress in Washington early to- ay. In New' York, John Thompon, executive . director of the pwners' bargaining unit. count- Ted:. "It is totally and grossly unfair when Garvey says we von't meet until Friday. "If there is not 'going to be a neeting between the owners and the players, it only con- irms the intent of Ed Garvey and the union to destroy the All Star Game," Thompson added. Neither side would officially say what the significance of Friday had to do with th ere- sumption of talks, but it was earned . that management negotiators had told Scearce on Monday that labor lawyer The odore Kheel, counsel for the SfFLMC, had long ago sched uled ,a mid-week trip, not con nected with the strike, to Cali [ornia. NFLMC sources said Knee would have canceled his trip i it appeared that the two side; would start talking again, nu he went ahead with his plan when the federal mediato couldn't get Garvey to agree to new negotiations. The union's 63 demands in elude the so-called "freedom is sues." which call for players t have the right to negotiate wit any team they wish and to vet trades, as well as an end to th reserve and waiver clauses an drastic curbs on the dis eiplinary powers of coaches owners and the league commis sioner to impose fines. "We will not consider elinu nations, but we will conside lOdifications," repeated hompson early today. But Thompson wouldn't sug- est any modifications. And the nion says it is management's me to . make a counter- roposal. In other developments Tuesay: ·NFL Commissioner Pete lozelle told The Associated Press that granting total free- om to the players from bind- ng contracts would mean that few rich teams would domi- jate the league, some poorer earns would eventually go out f business, over-all revenues would drop and fan interest would decline. -Officials of the Pro Football Hall of Fame at Canton, Ohio, said the second scheduled NFL exhibition, the July 27 game be- ween St. Louis and Buffalo, would not be played if the players' strike halts preseason raining for rookies. Except for the College All-Stars, who stopped practicing until nego- .iations resumed, rookie drills are under way in all training camps that have opened. --The Los Awgeles Times said this year's' charity exhibition game it is to sponsor, the Los Angeles Rams vs. the Cleveland Browns on Aug. 2, would be played "players' strike or no.'-' Owner Carroll Rosenbloom of the Rams told the Times: "As far as we are concerned, we intend to play the game. As a matter of fact, we may play with the same team with which we will play all season iong." --Pickets from the NFLPA marched near the eight NFL. camps which were open by Tuesday. --And Johnny Unitas, the veteran quarterback of the San Diego Chargers, said he would report to camp as scheduled on Friday. · | Highway 71 S.
