Palmer was through Each time he replied with a hitch at the britches and a victory It's happening again He's now gone 14 months without a victory He's won but once in almost three years It's been frustrating and, at times, embarrassing His put- ting miseries are well known Sometimes his driver is balky The irons are in and out "If it isn't one damn thing it's something he said I just can't seem to get it all together at the same time "The biggest thing with me has been concentration I've let myself get off the track with other things, with busi- ness It's not that I'm think- ing about business while I m playing, it s the subconscious thinking that breaks my con- centration I know that if I could come back out here on the tour, week-after-week, and just play golf, my chances of winning would be greater But I just can't stay out long enough I play two or three weeks and then I'm off the tour again, tending to busi- ness You can't do that I can't expect to play just one week and do well He took time off a couple of weeks ago to get all his busi- ness commitments out of the way He got in a week of competition in the Greensboro Open, and now says tie s ready for the Masters "It's getting he said of his game 'I'm doing enough things could win again 'If I didn t think I could win I wouldn't be playing Philadelphia Flyers hope to give West Division first Stanley Cup By THE CANADIAN PRESS A team representing the West Division of the National Hockey League has never won a Stanley Cup, but Philadelphia Flyers hope to change that this year The Flyers, or Broad Street Bullies as they are sometimes called begin their quest for the cup tonight when they open at home against Atlanta Flames in a best-of-seven series The other NHL playoffs start Wednesday with Chicago Black Hawks playing host to Los Angeles Kings, Toronto Maple Leafs travelling to Boston to meet the Bruins and New York Rangers opening in Montreal against the Canadiens Last year's Flyers were knocked out of the playoffs by eventual winner Montreal, but this year the West Division champions are more ex- perienced and solid in goal Berme Parent was m goal for an NHL-record 73 games and shared the Vezina awarded to the team allowing the fewest Tony Esposito of Chicago Last Saturday apparently with the Vezina sewed up. Parent was given a night off and his seldom-used backup man Bob Taylor, gave up six goals Fred Shero, coach of the Flyers shrugged off the use of Taylor by saying the Vezina is a worthless trophy Philadelphia has been estab- lished as favorite in the series against Atlanta which is in only its second year m the NHL The Flyers, besides Parent in goal, have such shooters as Bobby Clarke, Rick MacLeish, Bill Barber and Ross Lonsberry Then, of course, they have the Schultz, Andre Dupont, Bob Kelly and Don Saleski The Flyers had seven players with more than 100 minutes in had more than 300 But Atlanta isn't expected to be a pushover In six meetings between the clubs this season, Atlanta won twice, lost twice and there were two ties After clinching a playoff spot, Atlanta coach Berme Geoffnon said Healing Substance...
