Dodging the delay is a fine art First of all you have to turn off all radios including the one in the car Never answer the telephone Cross the street when you see someone coming who looks as ifhe might ever have held a putter in his hand Your ploy is not to get in any situation where someone can whisper The butler did it if you know what I mean There are some things you must make sure to do Like 1 Never Roll Down a Car Window In I960 when the Open in Denver was delayed a few hours for the West Coast I had carefully avoided coming into contact with anyone who knew a cleat from a cleek had shut down all the electronic means of communications and even though it was a hot day had headed home with the win dows rolled tightly up lest a guy in an open convertible drive by with his radio blaring and news of the Open on I got within the last stoplight of home and was waiting for it to change when a friend drove alongside and began gesticulating wildly I thought perhaps he was having a seizure of some kind so I rol led down the window Isnt it wonderful about Palmer he shouted And let the air out of my evening Never Look at a News Rack In 1971 in the British Open at had taken aU the usual precautions and avoided all the pitfalls of infor mation for 8Vi of the required nine hours when I had to go to the store for a loaf of bread Out side the market a neighbor hailed me to complain that the news rack at the market was always out of copies of our paper Without thinking I glanced at the rack Sure enough our papers were all gone But there were copies of a rival paper and across the top was the headline Trevino Wins British 3 Instruct Your Wife Not to Talk to Strangers Like the Mailman or the Bottled Water Deliverer In 1964 when I thought I was hermetically sea led off from the real world till the delayed telecast cameon my wife came in sorting let ters I was just talking to the she said Whos Tony Lema Well you can see dodging the delay should be an Olympic sport In this day and age the instant something happens Channel S has two helicopters at the site 90 million telephones are relaying the news across state lines every FM station in the world keeps repeating it over and over and skywriters are spelling it out over City Hall Trying not to find out something is harder than find ing gold It doesnt always help to warn your friends that if they know who won the British Open not to tell you In 1967 when Jack Nicklaus and Roberto de Vin cenzo were heading into the final round I warned a guest not to tell me if he knew and the friend a casual but not dedi cated sports fan shrugged I never heard of the guy any I wanted to poison his cocktail because even he had heard of Nicklaus The only year I didnt find out who won the British premature ly was the year I went to it 1969 Even then I had the eerie feel ing standing on No 17 that someone was going to come along and whisper in my ear Nicklaus will bogey here and Tony Jacklin will birdie and then will par 18 to become tne first Britisher in 18 years to win I felt all along that Saturday that along about 3 a voice would come out of the sky say ing Isnt it wonderful about Watson Or that a guest would arrive and say Well I wont tell you who won but that man cant win them Or that it would be like the year 1972 when I did ali the right things and kept myself in a nine hour news then turned on the TV to find the whole community was in a news blackout The power had failed on the Mth hole of the replay My wife takes all this in rtride Only the other day I heard her on the phone to a friend who was coming over Do me a favor will you Dont bring up World War II and tell my husband how it came out He wants to watch Victory at Sea and not know whose it ibrhM ibrhW 4210 8333 4110 5331 4211 6432 2100 4634

of the ninth inning enabled the Dodgers to score a 53 victory over the New York Mets and Manager Tom Lasor da had watery eyes and the usu ally unemotional Reggie Smith admitted he was close to tears

streak and built the Dodgers lead over the Hollis Stacy Withstands The Pressure Cincinnati Reds to 1012 games in the National Leagues West ern Division I hit a fastball away for the home said Lopes I dont know where I got the power but maybe it was from the Big Dodger in the sky I dont think Ive ever been so emotional in my life When the baU started out I thought I had a chance for a double My

PGA circuit showed em all that he hasnt lost much of the skill that has made him one of pro golfs mil lionaires The 37yearold Trevino com pletely recovered from back surgery performed last year made it to the winners circle for the firat time since May of 1976 Sunday when he carded a final round of 74 to win the Cana dian Open for the second time in his career Starting the day with a six stroke lead Trevino was never seriously challenged He lost only two strokes to par and his lead on the Glen Abbey course to finish with a 72hole total of eightunder par 280 and grab the first prize of Sometimes people who think theyre tough need to get knocked down Then they re member what got them there was hard said Trevino When you get hurt you want to prove something that youre not washed up Thats the road Im on now It was a pretty easy day for me I actually didnt play the back very well especially the last four or five holes I kept looking at the board and nobody was doing anything so I started hitting it to the center of the greens Trevino injured his back last year attempting to move an ear thfilled pot Doctors diagnosed the injury as a torn ligament and Trevino remained in bed for most of eight weeks before re sorting to surgery The heaviest thing I Lift now is a 12ounce can of he quipped Trevino who had earned only on the tour this year prior to the tournament pushed his

Oosterhuis who now lives in California I had a chance to finish eightunder but I just played each shot as it came along I just played with much better concentration than Ive had I think weve all forgotten how good he really Oos terhuis said of Trevino Tom Kite who at one point closed to within three strokes of the lead with birdies on the first two holes recorded a final round 73 to finish in
