Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 17, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE April Pat Sullivan Believe it or not, for Jack Nicklaus the 1974 golf season is now somewhat of a bust This magnificent golfer, winner of !4 major tournaments in his professional golf career, must wait until next year to try once more to achieve his greatest goal, a golfing grand slam Nicklaus doesn't think in terms of winning one major championship in one year He thinks of winning all four the Masters United States Open, British Open and the Professional Golfers Association When he doesn't win the Masters, his year, in a way, is over Sundav as Nicklaus described his game, he faltered on the finishing holes instead of getting better His patented late charge threatened twice, but it soon ran out of steam I m always disappointed when I don t win the he stated I m 34 now not 24 Every year you don t win the first one vou count the years you don't have a chance to win all four Nicklaus never talked that way about the grand slam before with such intensity Now that he has won 14 major tournaments, one more than Bobby Jones, the grand slam has become an obsession While he sometimes jokes about it, he wasn't joking Sunday He agrees he still has the desire, but he wonders how long it Will last He feels his ability will outlast his desire and he will want to do other things Perhaps Nicklaus himself is to blame As his golfing stature increases he appears to be satisfied with playing carefully in the earlv rounds for a good position, say two or three strokes off the pace In the final round, he believes he can suddenly shoot whatever it takes to win Sunday it didn t work His final round 69, which he felt should have been a 66, wasn't good enough to offset the brilliant plav of Garv Player In all fairness, Nicklaus did thrill the gathering with two late shots that must have had Player wondering what was going on when the galleries erupted From what appeared to be a watery grave on the 15th hole, Nicklaus made one of his most memorable shots Nicklaus in his final round cautious approach, hit a one iron off the fairway on 15, but it came up short It landed on the mcnne above a pond and rolled back to the edge on a chunk of watery soil After inspecting the lie, Nicklaus took off his right shoe and sock, rolled up his pantleg and put the shoe back on Looking more like Jacques Cousteau than Jack Nicklaus, he submerged his right foot into the pond and swung his sand wedge He put it six inches from the cup The cries of charge that had gone up on the 13th when ne sank an eagle putt of 33 feet, were heard once again The big bear was making his move But as a bogey five had wasted his putt on 13, a bogey four did him in on 16 Nicklaus it has already been made clear, has won 14 tournaments his way playing carefully But with the U S Open at Winged Foot as a testing place in June, perhaps he should take the advice of some and play the first three rounds as boldly as he plays most of his final rounds With his opportunity for a grand slam dwindling year by one bold round often isn't enough, just as his two shots Sunday weren t enough He gave the gallery a thrill or two Sunday, but for his ego and obsession Nicklaus did very little Bowling scores HOLIDAY BOWL SENIOR CITIZENS Irene Marcinko 363 Velma Miller 244 Arvid Oseen 237 Audrey Scott 256 Betty Murtland 334

the physical edge they needed to put them into the World Hockey Association East Division finals, player- coach Pat Stapleton said Tuesday night I thought changing our lines and using four units was the thing that turned the game our way he said "My players were fresh and it showed up m the third period It was in the third period Tuesday that the Cougars overcame a 2-1 deficit to defeat New England Whalers 3-2 at Springfield, Mass in the deciding game of the best-of- seven East Division semi final The Cougars had been coming behind since the start of the series, when they dropped the first two games of the series on Springfield ice Chicago opens the best-of- seven eastern final Friday night in Toronto against the Toros Chicago s series victory was the only real upset of the open- ing plavoff round They just managed to squeak into fourth place in the East Division, one point ahead of Quebec Nor- diques while the Whalers, last year's playoff winners, finished first in the division The top western teams Minnesota Fighting Saints and Houston Aeros, open their division final in Houston Thursday night Veteran Ralph Backstrom scored Chicago's tying goal in the third period and Jan Popiel scored the game winner about three minutes later sliding the puck past goalie Al Smith New England coach Ron Ryan blamed his club's col- lapses in the last periods of the fifth and seventh games of the series on injuries Killing an awful lot of penalties tired my team and it couldn t overcome the situation in the last period, he said "No game was decided by more than two goals which made for a heck of a series and it came down to which team got the breaks The game was delayed for 14 minutes early in the third period when two separate fights broke out Referee Bill Friday assessed 37 minutes in penalties along with game misconducts to Stapleton and Chicago centre Brian Coates Stapleton drew the miscon- duct for being the third in one of the fights and the game misconduct, his first ever in his professional career, for giving Friday the "choke" sign from the penalty box Coates was tossed out 10 minutes later for dumping a bucket of pucks on the ice The Cougars took charge after that, out-shooting the Whalers 24-7 in the last period Kinsmen share wealth The Lethbndge Kinsmen Club realized over from their annual Skatathon, held Feb 2 on Henderson Lake

NBA NEW YORK announced a virtual raiding war on the National Basketball Association, the American Basketball Association conducts an unprecedented draft of NBA players Wednesday, with the first pick expected to be super-star Kareem Abdul- Jabbar of Milwaukee Bucks or Detroit Pistons' Bob Lamer Bill van Preda Kolff, coach and general manager of Memphis Tarns, who have the first choice by virtue of having finished with the worst record during the 1973-74 ABA season, has said "I guess we 11 pick either Abdul-Jabbar or Lamer or someone on that order, to open the ABA's draft of NBA talent Jabbar, a 7-foot-2 centre, was the winner of the NBA's Most Valuable Player Award this season for the third time in his five seasons in the league The rugged 6-foot-ll Lanier finished third in the MVP voting after helping the Pistons make the playoffs for the first time since 1968 Should the Tarns take either Jabbar of Lamer, both highly- paid stars, they probably would have to wait several years before being able to sign either player, since both have long-term contracts with their present clubs Jabbar negotiated a five- Royals plan practice The Lethbndge Royals will hold their first practice of the 1974 season Sunday afternoon All players wishing to try out for the team should attend the two o'clock outing scheduled at the Wilson Junior High School soccer field The Royals will be participating
