Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 16, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, July 16, 1973 But Tom Weiskopf is really not complaining There was something about the Troon course A happy guy Tom Weiskopf of the United States kisses the British Open trophy Saturday after winning the British title at Troon, Scotland. TROON, Scotland (AP) Tom Weiskopf, the world's new est golf hero, continues to be puzzled by the Troon course, even after winning the British Open golf championship over the tricky seaside layout along Scotland's western shore. Following his record-tying 12- under-par' 276 Saturday, Weis- kopf said: "I don't understand this course at all." Golfing buffs wondered what he might hdve shot if he had set up a happy relationship with wind battered, rain splashed Troon. Prior to the tournament over the par-72 course, Weiskopf voiced his displeasure with the layout. But his attitude mellowed with a constant stream of birdies. OPEN RECORD TIED Despite his original hostility, Weiskopf managed to win con- vincingly, equalling the best- ever score for the 113-year-old event, set on the same Troon course by Arnold Palmer the last time the tourney was played here in 1962. "I stiU say it's a tough Weiskopf maintained. "I played my best golf ever. I never three-putted once during the four rounds. But I've never been so confusd at the start of a tournament. And I still feel puzzled now." Weiskopf, who never had won a major tourney before arriving here, had been red-hot this year, taking three events on the U.S. PGA circuit in two months. The prize money for the Brit- ish Open winner was a modest Sport of all sorts RETAINS TITLE PANAMA (AP) Panama's Ernesto Marcel retained his World Boxing Association feath- erweight crown Saturday night with a 12th-round technical knockout of Antonio Gomez of Venezuela., Gomez didn't answer the bell for the 12th round, having taken Ebony Hawks lose twice Taber Ebony Hawks' took it on the chin twice over the weekend as they suffered a pair of Southern Alberta Major La- crosse League setbacks'.

In Saturday's match, Bob Monkman led Nanton to their hard-fought victory with a bril- liant six-goal performance. Monkman has now scored 27 goals in his last four games. Ken Gregus paced Taber with five big goals while Alvaro Zan- oUi added a pair. Singles came off the sticks of Bruce Christanson. Dave Smith, Gary Romses. Wayne Bowes and Chipper Chmielewski for Taber, who trailed 11-9 after two periods. Meanwhile the Calgary Shamrocks finished the 1973 season undefeated by dropping the Hawks Sunday.

He began the final round with a one-stroke lead over Johnny Miller, 26-year-old winner of the U.S. Open. Miller made a strong bid. So did Britain's Neil Coles and fa- vored Jack Nicklaus. Miller and Coles shared sec- ond place at 279, one stroke ahead of Nicklaus. But Miller let Weiskopf slip away, and sparkling last rounds Shavers not alone in pain GROSSINGER, N.Y. (AP) Ernie Shavers and Madison Square Garden are both in a lot of pain today. Shavers because he lost the use of his jaw for a while and the Garden because it lost an expected sellout for the Sha- vers-Jerry Quarry fight for at least as long. Shavers' jaw was wired at Community General Hospital in Liberty, N.Y., Sunday night after the heavy-weight fighter broke it during a sparring ses- sion. Shavers of Warren, Ohio, was sparring witfi New York heavy- weight, Jeff Merritt. The six- f o o t-six, 220-pound Merritt landed a right-banded punch which fractured the mandible bone in two places. The injury was described by Garden spokesman John Con- don as worse than the broken jaw Muhammed All suffered in his bout with Ken Norton be- cause Shavers suffered a double fracture, one on the high right cheek bone and the other on the lower left jaw bone. Shavers, who has a record of 45-2 after his recent first-round knockout of former World Box- ing Association champion Jimmy Ellis, was slated to meet Quarry July 25 in the Gar- den. It was billed as a classic match between the puncher, Shavers, who has recorded 44 .knockouts, and the fighter, Quarry. But Merritt's light band stopped that.. Shavers, who is expected to remain in the hospi- tal for a week, won't be able to train for three months and it will be at least six months be- fore he can take a shot on the jaw. Condon said he doesn't know if there would be a replacement fight on the 23th. by Coles and Nicklaus too late. a balding Britain who never has won an international title, fired a dosing 66. Nicklaus, nine shots off the pace at the start of the last round, charged in with a record 65. Beore the round, Nicklaus' had given Weiskopf a few words of advice. "Don't play Johnny Miller, play the Nicklaus ad- vised. "That is just what I said the happy winner. Now the sharp-shooting Wete- kopf has his sights set on some- thing other than golf. "I love he said. "And I'm looking forward to some bighorn hunting in Alaska and, maybe, a big game safari in Africa."
