Jack Nicklaus, girding for the fast finish- he needs, admits his pride is at stake going into the windup of the pro golf season. "It's a matter of personal pride," Nicklaus said Wednesday on the eve of the start of the 1 $250,000 Westchester Classic. : And it's to satisfy that pride that the Golden Bear seeks to avoid the poorest season of his pro career. He's won but once this season. In 12 previous seasons as a touring pro he has never won fewer than two. He failed to win one of the Big Four titles -the first time in five years that he has not won either the U.S. or British Opens or the Masters or PGA. "It's not the first time I've been ehut out in the majors -- and it won't be the last," Nicklaus said. Big Four. But there's nothing I can do about it now. "The encouraging thing about that is that I'm beginning to play better. I really played pretty well--probably the best I've -played all year--in the PGA." He lost by one stroke to Lee Tre.vino in that one and now needs a couple of victories to salvage, something of the sea- on. The odds are in his-favor. ASU Coach Praises Defense JONESBORO, Ark.
