Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 4, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, July 4, 1970 THE UTHBRIDGE HERALD IT'S A HUMBLING GAME Tha fellow who said golf is o humbling game prob- ably didn't have this in mind. In spits of the handicap, the teenager played out his round in a junior, golf tournament in Charlotte, N.C.________________________________ Final Today Court Posts Victory WIMBLEDON, England CAP) Ken RosewaU, 35-yeaMld Australian tennis wizard, had a chance today to join Margaret Court and Bfllie Jean King as the year's Wimbledon record- breakers. Rosewall was to face John Newcombe in the men's final of the All-England, championships. Rosewall would be the oldest man ever to win his first Wim- bledon singles Stile if victorious. Mrs. Court, of Australia, fsrok the women's crown Friday by defeating Mrs. King of the U.S. 14-12, 11-9 in the longest and most-gruelling women's final in Wimbledon history. It was two games longer than the epic filial of 1919, when Su- zanne Lenglon downed Mrs. Lambert Chambers in a hectic affair which old men still talk about today. Friday's drama probably will be talked about for just as long. It swayed back and forth, with both players hitting magnificent shots on vital points. But the real drama was un- known to the excited fans who filled every corner around the centre court. Mrs. Court had pain-killing injections in her in- jured ankle before the match, and as the marathon match went on the effect of the injec tions was'in danger of wearing off. "In the last three or four games the ankle was beginning to feel Mis. Court said afterwards. "I would have gone on until I dropped." Rosewall has already estab- lished one record. He lost in the finals of 1954 and 1956, so his final appeaiiances have been spread over 17 no other player has ever achieved anything comparable at Wim- bledon.

Gilbert Stumbles, But Makes Cutoff Unknown Surges Into Second Round Lead LONDON, Bob Stone, a 40-year-old Kansas City native, emerged from obscurity on the Professional Golfers' As- sociation tour wiUi a one-stroke lead going into today's third round of the Canadian open championship. Stone calmly overcame heat and humidity on the par 72 London Hunt and Coun- try Club course to collect his second four-under par 68 and a 138 total. One stroke behind was vet- eran Art Wall at 137 after a one-under 71. Stone and Wall were among the late finishers in the field of 144 professionals and amateurs entered in the tourna- ment. The winner receives in Canadian funds. Among the early finishers was George Archer of Gilroy, Calif., who left on a short fishing trip immediately after shooting a 72. He returns today one stroke be- hind Wall and one ahead of Phil Rodgers, Mike Heasor and Chi Chi Rodriguez. TOPS ALL FRIDAY Rodriguez scored a best round of the go with his opening 72 and a 139 total. One stroke back are the lead- ing Canadians, .amateur Gary Cowan Kitchener, Ont., who scored an eagle-three on the par-five 13th, and professional Al Balding Toronto, who was highly critical of the severe change in pin placements on the huge greens. Stone, who earlier won the satellite division of the Citrus Open and who has collected only on the pro tour so far this year, agreed with Bald- ing's assessment of the pin placements. "The pins were a little more difficult to hit today but I still seemed to be getting closer to them which made putting that much easier." Stone, on the tour only three years, complained about the 82- degree temperature and intense humidity, but the uncomfortable atmosphere didn't prevent him from making birdies on the sec- ond, sixth, 10th, llth and 13th holes. He spoiled his f ive-under when he went one over on the 18th hole. "I dropped it down over the cliff there and had to chip back jp through the trees and then I ;wo-puttcd." Wall also agreed with Balding that the pin placements should not have been changed as much You can bet there will be some shuffling in the standings of the Southern Alberta Auto Racers following Sunday's out- ing.

Gordon Yoshinaka paced the Contractors at the plate with a single and a double. Wayne Nesbitt rapped out two singles and Mary Nelson a triple to aid the win. For the Marquis Hotel Bill Krause pounded a home run in a losing cause. Also, George Jackci and LeRoy Conine both rapped out a double .while Smo- key Borne chipped in with a double and a single. _____ from where they were the first day. "Mind I tliink we ex- pected them to stick the pins off in those corners, but we didn't expect them to do it today." Balding had four birdies but emerged from lire round only one under par after going one over on three holes. "I think I played a pretty steady the Toronto pro Point Spread Narrows, Could Change Sunday Jack Tiffen holds down the point lead in "B" class com- petition with Wt points.
