Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 12, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta g THE LETHBRIDCE Monday, July 1J, 1971------------------------------------------------ Will seek Western Open lille tlm iveek Trevino doesn't plan to slow down one bit SOUTIIPORT, England (API _ Lee Trevino is heading for the Western Open in Chicago with his reputation even higher than the triumvirate which has dominated world'goll for a dec ade. The "big three" are still ic garded as Jack Nicklaus, Ar- nold Palmer and South African Gary Player. But when Trevino took the British Saturday, he added this ancient crown to the United States and Canadian Open titles that he's won in less than a month. Palmer scratched from the British Open because he was upset by the way he was play- ing. Nicklaus finished the cham- pionship a joint fifth on a four- round total of strokes off the pace set by Trevino, who had 278 for 14 under par. Player was one stroke back of Nicklaus at 284. "I'm the second Cassius Clay." Trevino whooped after leaving the Royal Birkdale course by the Irish Sea with the British crown under his belt. By that he meant he was dominating golf the same way Muhammad Ali (Clay) domi- nated the world heavyweight boxing scene. GOLFER TO BEAT Everyone here in the country that gave birth to golf agreed that Trevino now is the man to beat for any title. "I had never won a champion ship on this side of the water and 1 believe that a really world-class golfer must pick up titles in countries outside the United Trevino said. "I think that now I must be re garded as world class." Tire Scottish Sunday Posl said: "The fabled big three ol golf have finally been banded. At Birkdale Lee Trev ino smashed to smithereens the image of the great triumvir ate." Trevino, even bouncier than he normally is on the American circuit, nearly blew the British championship with a disastrous seven on the 71st hole. He was playing with an almost unknown golfer from Taiwan, Liang Huan Lu. At one stage Trevino led Lu by five strokes, but sudden! the American's lead was cut it one shot going into the last hole Trevino kept his cool am carded a textbook birdie on the 72nd green to collar the champi- onship. Roars of excitement echoed all over the sun-splashed links.

MILWAUKEE (AP) Dave Eichelberger outnerved two un- heralded players in a hot finish with a dosing three-under-par 71 for a one-stroke victory in the Greater Milwaukee Open golf tournament Sunday. With a three-way tie looming in the battle for the top money after Australian Bob Shaw and Ralph Johnston .fin- ished with a 72-nole total of 271, Eichelberger birdied the 17th hole and closed with a par. He wound up with 270, 14 under par. Johnston blew a three-foot birdie putt on the 18th which could have sent the match at Tripoli Golf Club's par-71 course into a sudden-death playoff. Johnston dosed with a 67 and Shaw, who started the final round four strokes off the pace, shot a 66 to share second place and earn each. The final round over the wind-swept course, was a see- saw scrap with at least a three- way tie for first looming. But Eichelberger broke the tension in the final two-some with his birdie on the par-five 476-yard 17th hole by dropping his approach to within three fee' and easily sinking the putt. About 45 minutes before the end, it appeared that even Bruce Crampton of Australia might also figure in z four-way sudden-dealh playoff as he went to the clubhouse 12 under par with a closing 65. Crampton won with his fourth place standing. Hod Funseth, who had held tin third round lead by.a stroke Saturday, faded to a 72 for fifth place and Five players wound up four strikes behind and were tied for sixth. They included Dean Re- fram, who was tied with Eichel- berger for second after 54 holes, Lou Graham, Roy Pace, Paul Moran and veteran Lionel He- bert, who scored his second suc- cessive 09. Meanwhile in Horsham, Pa, pigtail'ed Jane Blabock overcame Kathy Whitworlh's two stroke lead and charged to a five-un- der-par 68 Sunday to win the George Washington women's golf tournament. The 31-year-old Miss WW- tworth, leading all-time money winner on the women's tour, folded under a steady drizzle, shooting a three-over-par 38-38 for a total of 214.

Only one judge made Hayles the winner by a wide margin. The other judge scored it 147-146 and the referee 147-144. Ford, the faster o.c the pair, carried the fight to Hayles for much of the match, scoring with left jabs. But the champion was the stronger puncher and landed many blows to the body. There was little action for the first four rounds, but then the pace quickened until both men slowed again towards the end. Hayles, who weighed 134% pounds to Ford's 133. suffered a nose bleed early in the fight. Allunlic tilic won by Kendall MONCTON, N.B.

Hulme was seeking is 19th Can-Am victory in three ears. Revson almost didn't make it, owever. A tire went flat on his nal lap around the tricky, 10- urn circuit and he limped nder the checkered flat at a nail's pace. The car stalled 100 ards past the finish line. Stewart, who had upset Mc- jaren's domination of the million series at St. Jovite Que., two weeks ago, appearec m the way to his second straight triumph until trouble began to strike his Lola.
