Emr a pen remaining in Charlotte to play at Carmel country club s facility the open which follows this week s Philadelphia Ivy classic will be at winged foot a highly respected course. I like the course very much. Masters Champion Gary player noted. It s a very Good one there s a lot of trap play one of player s specialities and tight fairways its going to be a great test Quot player added that the Quail hollow country Hub course Home of the Kemper open has a Chance to Quot be one of the world s great Golf courses. Of they d strengthen the areas around the greens. Bring in the water some it would be a tremendous course he explained. Player who shot modest rounds of 70-7272-72 after sizzling performances in recent tournaments saw no ill Omen going into the second leg of Golf s grand slam. When i done to play Well. I Don t have any excuses. He stressed Quot but no Man can play Well every week i m not discouraged at All. Have Stockton is it me of Manv players who expects the worst at winged foot to always played Well in the masters in fact. I be never finished worse than 16th arum. I be never played badly in the pc. But i be never played Well in the open perhaps it s because the course Hasni to been my kind of course. Quot i like winged foot or at least i liked it the Way it used to be he added Quot i m sure it looks a lot different now than the last time i saw it. There a no telling what the l sea has done to it. I m sure it la be Tough because they re still hot about Johnny Miller s 63 last year at Jim Wiechers is another who expects a rigid test in this year s open Wiechers finished with a 68 sunday for a six under Par total of 282 Quot you always expect the worst in the he smiled. Quot i be played winged foot twice and ifs a Long course anyway. With the rough up As High As in a sure if la be. It will make it a lot longer ifs a great driving Leonard Thompson fired a closing 65 sunday pulling the former Wake Forest golfer out of last place in the Field and into a higher payoff bracket. But Thompson Wasny to taking any chances about getting into trouble with is opinions about the . Open. Quot you re not going to trap me into answering questions about the open Quot he joked. Quot any Way you answer them in t Miller Barber was rather matter of fact about golfs second major event Quot i m going to try to qualify Here monday for the open Quot he said. Quot and ifs Fine if i do and Fine if i Don to. If what i hear about their prices up there this year is True. Quot i hear they re going to charge us $65 a Day for rooms. That s just a Little bit Steep Don t you think Quot Barber s Iron game was Superb sunday in a closing 65 As he needed Only one Birdie putt of any length a 40-footer on no. 4. The rest were from five feet or less. Quot my game is real Good right now Quot he offered Quot my wife and i just had a Little baby boy about two weeks ago and now i can get my mind Back on business. I Only missed one Fairway and i feel like in a playing really Monty Kaser a 31-year-old off and on tour performer finished at 284. Four strokes under Par in sundays final round that be very significant except that Kaser a native of Wichita kan., scored a Hole in one on the 149-Yard second Hole to the Delight of a surrounding gallery and to his personal enrichment. The Ace was Worth $5,000, More than Matching his 1974 tour earnings. Quot i hit an 8-Iron and i really thought it was going to be too he recalled happily Quot but it flew right in the Hole. It did no to Bounce or anything just dropped right straight into the Center of the Hole. Quot i be never had an Ace on the tour before although i did have one As an Amateur Quot he added. Quot i did no to know there was a $5,000 prize for one either. I had heard they were giving a car or something but id rather have the Kaser went on to Post a one Over Par 73, proving that aces done to necessarily set up a tremendous round. Quot it happened so fast really weird. A Kaswer pondered. Quot it was win Means More than $ to Menne Jerry heard Ltd it offers Hisco Gratl latious to Kemper open Champion Bob Menne after playoff map a Charlotte no i Apt a he d often considered quitting he d won less than $30 too in 3l� years car trouble coming into Charlotte had just about busted him he was Down to Gas Money to the next Stop his wife was. Cooking hamburgers in the Motel room and. With that background and that pressure Longshot Bob Menne birdied the Mal Hole of regulation play to gain a tie and then scored from 30 foot on the first Hole of sudden death to win the $50,000 first prize in the Kemper open Golf tournament Quot it Means everything to me. The curly haired Man from Massachusetts said after his dramatic Triumph sunday. Quot it Means the masters and the tournament Tbs Mon Point lnterpris8 sports monday. June i 1174.page 3b of champions and it Means Money Golly so too Menne. 32, a struggle throughout his six year tour career whipped an Iron shot to within six feet of the cup for the Birdie on the Rind Hole that caught front running Jerry heard then Defeated the easygoing Guy with the dramatic Birdie putt on the first playoff Hole Quot of i have to said heard. Quot i in glad it s to Bob 66-65 final rounds lose Kemper Hill s Effort is overshadowed by Jim Pettit Enterprise sports writer Charlotte Bob Menne s dramatic 25 foot Birdie putt on the first Hole of a sudden death playoff put 950 too in hts Bank account it ended four years of frustration since a playoff loss to Lee Trevino in the National airlines open Ami the Kemper open Victory opened up several new doors such As the masters. Tournament of i Ham pions and a qualifying exemption even disappointed runner up Jerry heard could console himself with a tidy $2 500 Check. The exciting finish to the seventh annual event at Quail hollow country club overshadowed the heroics of Dave Hill. Though Hill played the final 36 holes of Competition in rounds of 66-65and finished third Quot i played some great Golf this week. He said Quot and it s the first time in i done to know How Long that i be putted Well for four rounds but you be just got to be Lucky it s got to be your Hill picked up $17,750 for his third place finish but showed no signs of frustration Quot frustrated no. Not at All this is just a game Quot Hill stressed Quot it s not arms or legs or anything like that ifs taken me a while to develop that attitude too. About 25 years to learn to say Quot what the hell Quot Hill is As tenacious a competitor As there it on the tour when he s in the right Frame of mind he admits he Ham t always been that Way Quot i lost interest in Golf in 1970. He recalled. A and i did t really get it Back until december of last year there was no particular reason i had this knee operation though and was lying in the Hospital thinking about a number of things i got to thinking that god had Given me this Talent to play Golf and i Wain t using it i made up my mind that from then on. Nothing would keep me rom using that Talent Quot Hilt ranked 16th on the Money list going into the Kemper and hts sunday payday pushes his season earnings to More than $65 too he won the Houston open three weeks ago Quot i thought 64 might be Good enough to win this tournament. Quot he added but i did i think i d be the one to shoot it i just go out and try to hit each shot of i d been Able to fade the Hall though i d have put several shots stiff but i be got this phobia about cutting the Ball i could go right out to the practice tee and hit 300 fades in a Row right now. But i leave that shot out there i just can to seem to do it on the course a whenever i m playing in a tournament i m just working on my game of it comes together that a great i have nothing else to do but play Golf. That s All i m going to do for the next five or six Hill agreed his attitude May be unique among tour players Quot i just Don t think there s any other Way to go Quot he said simply a some people enjoy playing Golf More than others and i enjoy Golf a a heard was gracious in defeat Quot i played badly on the front in be. Hit the Ball very poorly and shot 36 he said. I figured if i shot 34 on the Back nine. Which i did. I d still win the Golf tournament and then on no 17 tee. I figured of i parred in id win. But Bob made that putt on la and then another great putt on 15 and that was it. Quot i guess it just was t in the cards for me. Because no is is an awfully Tough Birdie Hole even without the pressure Bob had on heard shrugged then added Quot i Don t feel bad about losing it because i Couldst have lost to a nicer Guy it probably worked out for the Best this Way he needed the Money and i made a Good Check too its not like losing to Nick taut who s already got More Money than he can spend Quot but the Winner summed it up Best asked if the Victory made tournament Golf More bearable Menne grinned.
