Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 21, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, August 21, 1970 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 9 Says: Golf's Million Dollar DELIBERATE DRAW To draw (lie ball from right to left, merely change your setup. Posi- tion the clubface so that ft faces the direction in which you wish the ball to finish. Place your feet parallel to a line on which you want the ball to start out. Don't manipulate- your swing. .trust "your positioning to produce the draw and swing normally. A finished golfer wil' be able to deliberately curve the ball in one way or another. But let me say that I believe the club golfer should not try to bend the ball with a driver. .Certainly good players can and should be able to do this, but for most golfers the best tee shot with the driver is to the middle of the fairway. 1970 HAH. Hr-n. Norcrest Beaten 2-0 Defending Champs THUNDER BAY (Special) "It was a tough one to lose let me tell you." No more no less was said this morning as Jim Szucs first gave the details of Lethbridge Norcrost's loss in the Canadian Little League final at Thunder Bay. Szucs coach of Norcrest along with John Koskoski, was noticeably shaken as lie described the fatal seventh inning in which his club was beaten 2-0 by Valleyfield, Que.

The other ;ams in the finals were Wind- or, Ont. and Trail, B.C. If the truth were known zues didn't really want to talk Like Raindrops The Putts Fell SUTTON, Mass. (AP) Raindrops kept falling and so did the putts, sending veteran Dan Sikes into a two-stroke lead in the opening round Thursday of the Avco Golf Clas- sic. "It's probably the best putting Win Title lame Goes Extra Inning The Expos are the Leth- bridge Big League city cham- pions. Coached by BUI Andreachuk and Steve Pocza the Expos blanked the Cardinals 2-0 to win hte city title. Ken Nakama was the win- ning pitcher as he allowed only three hits while striking out eight. Jerry Veres was the loser. He was touched for six hits ns he fanned eight. Brian Sedgewick and Eandy Andreachuk each stroked two singles for the Expos. Veres went one-for-orie for the Car- dinals. Expos scored their runs when Brian Veres walked, stole sec- ond and went to third on a per- fect bunt by Sedgewick, who also stole second. A single by Terry Pocza brought them both home and Nakama shut out the Cardinals the rest of the way. In winning the city title the Expos won the Kimuras Sport- ing Goods trophy. round I've had in my th 30-year-old Sikes said. "I've been playing golf for 2 years and this must be the be putting I've ever Sike said after mastering mammo greens for a six-under-par 66 a Pleasant Valley Country Club. Carrying an umbrella, Sik< was an early starter in tl bulky field of 153. He got off a watery start, taking thre putts for a one-over-par four o the first green. However, the veteran from Forida quickly adjusted to the sprinkles. He registered four consecutive birdies starting with the second hole, and fin- ished roth a total of eight birds despite three three-putt greens on the course. Sikes, winless in two years on the PSA tour, came within one stroke of Pleasant Valley's com- p e t i t i v e course record. He stamped himself as a top threat for the first prize. However, he had plenty of contenders waiting for him to falter in the second round today. Just two strokes back were Billy Casper, Bobby Mitchell, John Schlee and local product Joe Carr. Defending champion Tom Shaw, Dave Eichelberger, Don Bies, Tom Aycock, Jin Colbert and R. H. Sikes were bunched at 69. Then, another stroke back with 70, were U.S. Open cham- pion Tony Jacklin, Lee Trevino, Tom Weiskopf, Bob Goalby, Herb Hopper, Lou Graham, Lio- nel Herbert, and Lloyd Monroe. Gary Player and Dave Stock- ton, the newly-crowned PGA champion, were tied with flock of entries with 72s. Wayne Vollmer of Vancouver had a 78 and George Knudson of Toronto a 79. WINDSHIELDS BROKEN?

"Twice we had unners on second and third ut couldn't bring them in." In the seventh inning, an ex- ra-inning, Valleyfield, on their way to the seventh champion- hip they have enjoyed in 15 years, scored then- runs with- ut getting the ball out of tho nfield. The first batter reached first when he was hit by a pitch rom Scott Jarvie. According to Szucs it was a questionable call 'but you can't argue with the umpire" he said. Valleyfield's next batter laid down a bunt and kicked it on us way to first base. None of the umpires, after a meeting, had seen the play and it went as a base hit. A sacrifice and i throwing error gave the Ca- ladian champions two runs and Norcrest it was all over. In the game Jarvie struck out 12 and gave up five hits and no walks. His opponent, Yvon Therrien, turned to an identical performance with 12 strikeouts, five hits against and no walks. TWO SINGLES Earl Ingarfield led the way for Norcrest as he came up with his first two-hit perform- ance of the playoff, both sin- gles. Eddie Leong, Gordon To- kariuk and Greg Kveder man- aged the other hits. Like Ingar- field's, they were all singles. In advancing to the final against Valleyfield, Norcrest dropped their opening game Monday to Windsor but came ack with two victories ousting 2-1 and Windsor 1-0. Valleyfield, on the other and, blanked Trail 2-0 and owned Windsor 6-4. Szucs and Koskoski were more than pleased with their tab's performance. They were n full agreement that the kid- ave it their all. "They, (Valleyfield) were n( belter than we saic zucs. He went on to say thai with a couple of breaks the ;ame would have gone the ther way. The west has had its prob- es winning the Canadian jttle League championship bu Szucs and Koskoski feel the west can win it. "We learned a lot during the Canadian finals, Szucs stated, 'and we know now the west can win it all with just a little more work." Norcrest, represenling the prairies after capturing a tour- lament with Moose Jaw, Ed- monton and Calgary, did them- selves and the Lethbridgfi Min- or Baseball Association proud. It is a real feather in the LeEh- widge association's cap to lave a team finish second to the Canadian champions. Szucs didnt' know exactly when the team would be back in Lethbridge as they can't fly out of Thunder Bay until Sat- urday evening. He could only say they would be home for Sunday dinner.

He added, however, that if winds of 17 to 20 miles an hour hat swept the course Thursday continue, par golf could win the 1970 CPGA. The winds reached their peak during the afternoon and late starters came in with higher scores than anticipated. Moe Norman of Gilford, Ont., a pre-tournament favorite, was among the last in. After a front nine 34, he registered a 40 on .he homecoming nine and a score of 74. Just ahead of him was defend- ing CFGA eliamp Bob Cox Jr. of Richmond, B.C., who finished with a 75. Rose said those who place the pins will probably make things a lot tougher for today's 18 holes, after which the low 100 and lies will qualify for play Saturday and Sunday. "They have any number of places they could hide those said Rose, "and they wouldn't have any problems rat- ing this course al 75 ralher than 72." Last Big Name Holdout Kapp Might Sue Vikings SAN ANTONIO, Tex. (AP) The News quotes a lawyer for Joe Kapp of Minnesota Vikings as saying the quarterback may sue professional football if the National Football League club doesn't meet Kapp's demand for a reported contract. Kapp, 33, is the last remain- ing big-name holdout in profes- sional football. His lawyer, John Cook, speculated on a possible trip to court in a telephone in- terview from Glennbrock, Nov., with the San Antonio News Thursday. "It's probably no news to you that the football establishment is in bed with one the 72-year-old lawyer said. "They have gentlemen's agreements and all sorts of friendly arrangements to pro- tect each other "Now if Joe is unable to play football tecause of those tactics no escape from it, they know it as well as will be confronted with a multi- million dollar anti-trust and fraudulent connivance s u i Cook told the News. "There just seems to be no way around it now." He -was asked if this means Kapp will sue if the Vikings don't meet his salary demands. "Oh, Cook said. "Joe, like the rest of the boys, wants to play. "But so far as Minnesota Is concerned, he's been vilified in the press, they have made every effort in the Viking-con- trolled press to hurt him." Cook continued: "They have tried to drive a wedge between him and his fellow players, but the more they do this the stronger our case becomes. "The individuals responsible for this-and I'm not just talk- ing about the Viking manage- ment will have to answer for it." Cook also said there Is "al- ways the possibility Joe will go to some other club." Kapp played with Calgary Stampeders and British Colum- bia Lions of the Canadian Foot- ball League before joining Min- nesota.
