Up a everyone s got problems. Cassius Clay keeps moaning because he has to Shell out All that Alimony Money Sandy Koufax control Isnit quite what it should be and now Jack Nicklaus comes along with some troubles of his own. The first Man Ever to wrap up two straight masters titles does no to particularly like the Way his wedge is working. Before anyone runs out and starts taking up a collection for him let it be noted that he does no to have any great degree of difficulty with the 13 other clubs in his bag. A my wedge play does t excite me a pointed out the Beefy Blond 26-year-old Columbus Clouter not too Long after he climbed into the fancy Green jacket they always give the masters Winner Here. A it could be a lot better he went on. A a in a still not getting As much spin on the Ball As id Nicklaus a Man who has hauled Down <70,000 Here alone during the past four years Wasny to really complaining so much As he was stating a fact. Jack is a rather unusual fellow. For example after finishing in the three Way tie with Tommy Jacobs and Gay Brewer at the end of the regulation 72 holes sunday he did two unorthodox things Springfield College hosts annual Loaches Springfield mass. A the annual two Day Springfield College football clinic will open Friday night april 15 at 7 30 in the memorial Field House according to 1965 new England College division coach of the year Ted Dunn.

Which he Felt help him in mondays playoff round. First he hustled out in the Twilight of the Augusta nationals practice Green and painstakingly worked on his putting for nearly a half hour. Something about him looking Over the Ball wrong Only he said it was too involved to explain in precise detail. That condition corrected the hungry 210-Pound ohioan realized he still Hadnot eaten his dinner so he took care of that Little matter by polishing off four steaks. Better make that three and a half. He did no to want to Over eat so he gave half of his last tenderloin to someone else. Nicklaus unquestionably one of the finest golfers of this decade and quite possibly of All time has a Way of minimizing his own talents. From the Way he spoke following his decisive playoff Victory Over Jacobs and the battered Brewer monday he almost seemed to be apologizing for his Victory. A i was very fortunate to be in the playoff because i made too Many mistakes he declared. A this was a tournament that was lost not won. I won it last year but this year a Lotta fellas lost it by making a Lotta Nicklaus explained some of the a mental lapses a he had suffered during the five Day grind and then topped them off with still another one when he got Back to the Green jacket he was wearing. A this is the same one they gave me in 1953,�?T�?T he said. A i mean 1963, he laughed quickly correcting himself. A Hogan like that particular reference was to Ben hogans masters Triumph in 1953 at which time Nicklaus was 13 and just beginning to learn the facts of life about Golf. For statistic keepers and there seem to be As Many in Golf As there Are in baseball the 53-year-old Hogan looked Good for a while in this year s masters then tired and came in seven strokes Back. Hogan had the record Here for a dozen years with his 14-under-Par 274 and guess who came along and broke it Nicklaus of course with his 17-under-Par 271 a year ago. He shot a Only a 288 for four rounds this time. Maybe it was that Balky wedge of his or something he ate. One thing it Wasny to for sure and that was his Driver. Jacobs said he went into the playoff with Only one piece of strategy. A i Wasny to Gonna watch Jack drive a he offered laughingly. That was a mistake too. Jacobs missed the Best show of the Day. A father figures keeps track of celts playoff statistics i i a ii i Jesu los Philadelphia up a Percy Manning 147, Philadelphia out pointed Luis Rodriguez 151, Cuba to. By Dick Oeh up sports writer Boston up a he a a teacher of scripture latin greek and ethics but around Boston Garden he a called a father figures a for his statistical studies. The gentleman in question is father John Earley a priest who teaches at our lady of Providence Seminary in Warwick r.i., during the try but compiles playoff statistics and roots the eight time Champion Boston celtics Home in his spare time. Father Farley a teacher for 18 years and a frustrated athlete since he was a boy is just As ready to produce basketball facts and figures As he is to discuss religion. He carries his athletic interest even farther by coaching both Schoolboy basketball and baseball in Rhode Island in Between shuttling trips to Boston Garden. Oddly Fathe. By Bec. Involved As a member of the celtics unofficial but productive family because of a heart attack. The Man stricken was the club publicist j. Howard Mchugh eight years ago. Howie recalls worrying after the attack that he be Able to produce the usual mass of facts and figures for the writers and broadcasters covering the celtics 1958 playoff championship bid. But father Farley stopped into Mchughs Boston Garden office Learned of the difficulty and promptly took Over the task. He a been at it Ever since. A a in be always been interested in statistics a he recalls a dating right Back to knowing baseball batting averages when i was a boy. In those Days if you did no to know just about everyone a batting average there was something wrong with in any event father Farley produced the 1958 statistics and has been turning them out for Bostons playoff bids Ever since. He keeps piles of notes and clippings during the regular season and extracts at playoff time those figures relating to the current celtic rival. If for example you a like to know How Many Points Wilt Chamberlain averaged against the celtics in nine regular season games look up father figures fact Sheet. If you want to know How the celtics and 76ers made out against each other this year last year in the last ten years or since the club was formed As the old Syracuse Nat Slook it up on father figures sheets. He reports such Choice titbits As the fact that ten Boston players fouled out against Philadelphia this season the largest total a since i have been Holder of a season ticket to celtic Home games father Farley manages to see about half the clubs Boston Garden games and of course All their Providence appearances in addition to an occasional trip to other cities. Holder of Abma and St degrees in theology from Catholic University in Washington father Farley admits he developed his statistical ability from his father who at 70, is still Active As a Church Sexton and who frequently accompanies his son to celtic games. A the used to Correct adding machines so i guess its natural for me to enjoy working with statistics. As Long As they re figures on the celtics a father figures said.
