Furlong demonstrated the fundamentals of a proper golf swing. “It’s such a thrill to see kids so inspired and so enthusiastic about golf," Furlong said. “They arc a pleasure to work with.” Sundance officials also recognized Bill Daffin, formerly of New Braunfels, who set a new course record at the course. Daffin, who currently resides in San Antonio, shot a 4-under 54 earlier this month. He played from the blue tees and hit the green with his first shot on 17 of the 18 holes. ATLANTA (AP) — The memories came flooding back to Lenny Wilkens once again. His first thought after coaching his 1,000th victory was of the lone championship he has won, with Seattle in 1979. Not far behind were becoming the NBA’s winnmgest coach last year, coaching in four NBA All-Star games and his 1990 induction into the Basketball Hall of Fame for accomplishments as a player. “Perhaps I’ll get in (to the Hall) as a coach, too,” Wilkens said after the Atlanta Hawks defeated Cleveland 74-68 Friday night. “Not many coaches do that.” In this case, count on it. Here is a man who has shown that nice guys can survive and thrive. Here is someone who has demonstrated that a coach doesn’t have to yell and scream and stomp around on the sideline to get results. Take note, all you young coaching hotheads, of a man who has won 1,000 games with quiet dignity. “You don’t sec that often in any sport." said Atlanta guard Craig Ehlo, who has played for Wilkens since 1987, “I’d say Lenny’s record is pretty safe.” Of course, on a night when nostalgia and reminiscing were in order, it didn’t take long for Wilkens to return his focus to the tasks ahead. At age 58, the fire to coach still bums with white-hot intensi ty. Wilkens will fulfill another goal this summer when he coaches Dream Team III at the Atlanta Olympics, but he said his primary aim is to bring the city its first NBA title. “If we add one more quality player, we’ll be good,” he said. "That doesn’t mean I’m giving up on this year.” The Hawks are a team devoid of any true superstars, yet they stood at 32-24 heading into Saturday night’s game at Milwaukee. Atlanta was tied for fifth in the Eastern Conference, one game behind Cleveland for homecourt advantage in the first round of the playoffs. This may be the trademark team of his career, which is marked by his ability to push mediocre teams and players to victories.
