But when it did it drowned out the first round of the worlds richest Golf tournament. The deluge forced postponement until today of the first round in the $200,000 Carling world championship. And it was a bitter blow to Massachusetts Golf addicts who for years have pleaded for a regular place on the professional tournament schedule. The Rains came Down not once but twice during the first 18-Hole session of the 154-Man International tournament. The first storm soaked everyone but the second inundated the greens and completely washed out the 17th tee.

They based that decision on the fact that the huge galleries had already seen 127 entries Complete the rounds and the other 27 go at least half Way. Lanky George Archer 25, of Gilroy calif., was unquestionably the sorries to see the rain. His 67 score had led All others in the nearly completed round when pea officials invoked their washout Rule. Archer whose 65 had led the opening round of last years Carling tournament was trying for his third straight Early Lead today after wednesdays disappointment.

Arnold Palmer for example had wiped from his record the double bogey seven he scored on the 6th Hole Enro Ute to an unimpressive 73. Jack Nicklaus said he got Quot my bad putting round out of my system Quot while carding a 72.
