Trevino, Nicklaus share favorites role "You'H lose this tear" SOUTHPORT, England (AP) The tip-off came last week in the Canadian Open at Mont- real's Richelieu golf club. Arnold Palmer, pro golf's all- time leading money winner, its most dynamic performer, the greatest drawing card the game has ever known, was making the turn and was about to nit his tee shot on No. 10. An announcement was made on the adjacent first tee, first in French, then English. "Now on the tee, the U.S. Open champion, Lee Trevino. The vast gallery surrounding Palmer began to melt away. A dozen, a few score, began to amble away from Palmer to- ward Trevino's already huge gathering. Monday. FANS LEAVE ARNIE More fans joined them, the walk became a trot, and then it was a full-scale stampede, liter- ally hundreds of people running away from Palmer to watch the brash and cocky Trevino do his thing. He may not yet be king. "If the money's there, 111 play on a gravel he once said. He's not Palmer, nor Gary Player, the dedicated little South African. He's no Billy Casper, delicately cutting his way around a course, nor a Jack Nicklaus. He's Trevino, Super Mex. One of a kind. A rags to riches char- acter who captured the imagi- nation of the public by flaunting tradition. He twice passed up invitations to play in the Masters, one of the world's four major champi- onships and a bastion of the game's Establishment. It's actions such as those that have helped make this 31-year- old Mexican-American grandson of a Dallas gravedigger one of for the title in this week's Brit- ish Open.

The International Lawn Ten- nis Federation is expected to approve the ban Wednesday at its annual meeting at Stresa, Italy The breach between the ILTF and WCT, ending four exciting years of open tennis, centres on Hunt's demand for a flat pay- ment of from the All- England Club for allowing his stars to play at Wimbledon next year, in addition to the prize money they win. He also wanted a say in television contracts and the make of balls to be used. Herman David, All-England chairman, said he was not going to allow anyone to interfere the running of Wimbledon, "and I am not going to pay Mr. Hunt for letting his players reappear at Wimbledon, tyhere they made their reputa- tions."
