A if i had t gotten that invitation i would have packed up and gone Home Quot Venturi said later. Not Only would he have missed the thunderbird but he might have also skipped the . Open at Washington which he won that year. But after 1964, came another near disaster. Suddenly victimized by a circulatory ailment which left his hands numb and lifeless and eventually required a delicate operation Venturi managed to win Only a paltry $295 All last year. Then came the . Open in june. It was held in a town just outside St. Louis called Creve Coeur which Means a broken heart Quot in French. That s the same Way Venturi played or rather tried to. He hacked his Way around in 160 strokes for the first two rounds and that did t qualify him for the last two. He zipped up his bag that Day and never really knew whether he d Ever use his clubs again. It s Nice to report he s using them Fine right now.
