I'd like to see him hit the way he did to- night." Bj THE ASSOCIATED PRESS "That's about the worst I've ever played In my de- clared a hot, fired and disap- pointed Sam Snead after falling Monday In his bid to qualify for this year's U.S. Open. After a fine morning round of 69 in sectional qualifying at the Charlotte, N.C., Country Club, Snead ballooned to a 78 In the afternoon round. His 147 total was 12 strokes back of Doug Sanders, the top qualifier. More Important, it was two strokes over the qualifying limit. So Snead, winner of 84 PGA- co sponsored tournaments but not a single U.S. Open, will be absent when the field of 150 tecs off at Pebblo Beach, Calif. June 15. Snead, who turned CO nine days ago, went one over par five times on the front nine of his second round. But even with that, he would have managed to qualify if he had been able to par the back nine. Instead, he went one over on the 17th, then three-putted to go two over on tho par four, 423-yard 18th. The temperature was in the high 80s, but Snead refused to use that as an excuse. So for Snead, the U.S. Open jinx continues. An Open also-ran 33 times, he competed in 25 con- secutive Opens starting in 1937. His closest shot at a title came in 1939 at Philadelphia, when with victory in his grasp he went one over on the 17th and 18th hole. Last year, due to a mix-up in the mail involving Snead's ap- plication, he did not even com- pete in the qualifying rounds. Ironically, there Is one Snead who can compete at Pebble Beach. That's J.C., Sam's nephew and a tour regular, who year. L. E. Ricard, president ol Peter Jackson Cigarettes which sponsors the Canadian Open and the 10-tournament Canadian pro tour, said the financial reim- bursement and the Triple Crown Trophy would be an Inducement for all professional golfers to look forward to in the years ahead. Trevino spent much of his tune chiding himself for a missed putt on the 72nd hole of (he Kemper Open the previous day that cost lilm that tourna- ment championship. "I don't really know what he recalled. "The hole looked about that big (he indicated a 25-cent my shaft felt like rubber and the golf ball looked the size of a tennis ball. "I did everytlung wrong. Peo- ple tell me it was a five- or six-foot putt. It looked more like 10 feet to me. When I stroked through, my left wist stopped and my right kept going." When someone suggested he made someone happy, Trevino retorted good-naturedly: "Who? Doug? Ah, he deserved Trevino added of the Kemper Open winner, Doug Saunders, who ended several frustrating months on the tour. LOOKS FROM A1H Trevino, who has been mak- ing his move on the PGA tour in the last three weeks, got a birds-eye view of the course from the plane that flew him into Buffalo airport where he was met by Royal Canadian Golf Association members and the sponsors. "Man, have you got a lot of bunkers on that course. What's the deal? Somebody got a sale on for sand When told 119 sand bunkers rimmed the fairways and greens, Trevino replied with a laugh: "Yeh? Bet I saw that many on one hole." Of the man expected to be the biggest threat to his U.S. cham- pionship later this month, Jack Nicklaus, Trevino said most of the touring pros aren't out to beat each other. "We're all trying to beat Jack. We feel If we can beat Jack Nicklaus we can win during the year." Nicklaus, however, is not en- tered in tho Canadian Open. Several other big name players will be among the starters, in- cluding Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, George Archer and vet- eran Sam Snead. NEW YORK (NBA) One cnn only painfully imagine Tim Foil's inner tortures. He is the Montreal Expos' shortstop, lean and taut and volatile as a firecracker. At age 21, he is filled with talent and promise and un- quenchable temper. In the space of one week In late May, he was fined for throwing down his bat- ling helmet and bat at a called tMrd strike, and then thumbed out of a game while protesting with throbbing neck veins another called third strike. With the New York Mets this spring, he got into a clubhouse argument with coach Joe Pignatano and heaved a punch. Not long after, he was traded to Mon- treal. Conceivably this punch had something to do with the trade, the last blow as far as the Mets were concerned. They may have felt that, for all of Foil's aggressiveness and potential, they ore not running a Stillman's gym. For in the dugout last sum- mer Foil had also presented Ed Kranepool with a knuckle sandwich. On the field, Foil will make an infield out and run at the first baseman to sheer frus- tration. In the dugout, he walks the planks a thousand limes like a worrisome pre- lim fighter. In customarily sensitive fa- shion, teammates call Foil "nulsy." And "Crazy Horse." And "redneck." "It's because I'm BO high- lie says. He says he is driven to be the best shortstop in baseball, but has so far succeeded m being only the brashest. II teammates are of little help and understanding, um- pires are even less so. His spectacular complaints are taken by defensive umpires as an attempt to show them up. "Half the umpires in the league are trying to curb his said Montreal man- ager Gene Mauch. "They're so smart they ought to psychiatrists at Columbia." Mauch, however, says that he would like to channel Foil's plale can be a trauma. One tliinks of some other "htgh- slrung" players like Ted Wil- liams and Ty Cobb who learn- ed to handle the pressure. And some like Jimmy Piersall and the young Tony Hoi ion who did not. Woodson, 4-3, who failed for the 10th straight time to finish, had one inning of relief help from Granger, who recorded his fiery spirit. "He wants to bo the first man to hit said Mauch. "He won't be, of SULLY SAYS -By Pat Sullivan OWNERS of the two new franchises In the National Hockey League, to be situated in At- lanta and Long Island, are about to get a lesson in what it means to believe in fairy tales. Five years ago the NHL went from six highly- successful clubs to 12. Then for the 1970-71 and 1971- 72 season Buffalo and Vancouver were added. Tho rich got richer, and the poor got poorer. Parity, in the National League is as far away from coming into being as Vancouver is from Hono- lulu by canoe. Like Old Mother Hubbard, the owners of Atlanta and Long Island franchises will find a bare cupboard. Oh, they'll find experience and players willing to give it their all, but players of NHL calibre? Forget it. The established teams, which Montreal, Detroit, Chicago, Toronto, Boston, and New York have al- lowed St. Louis, Minnesota, California, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Buffalo, Los Angeles and Vancouver to now be called, will protect 15 forwards and defence- men plus two goaltenders. Add to this first-year pro- fessionals who are exempt from the draft and what do you have left? Atlanta and Long Island, today, have been added to the Hockey Hall of Shame. They have paid, or are in the process of paying, to give a home to hockey players who five years ago would have had trouble making it in the American Hockey League or the Western League for that matter. Atlanta won the toss and will pick first. Here's hoping they have enough sense to draft young and gamble on a future. With the pick of the establish- ment rejects, a new club has little hope of success to start with so why not give their new fans some new life What good Is a Ted Green or Guy Trottier going to do an expansion club? Green, since his accident, hasn't even been able to play part-lime on a power- house aggregation like Boston Brains. They signed him to a good contract on his return to the game last year but even they couldn't see fit to use him. They shied away from playing him, yet expect some expansion team to pay for him. Teams like Los Angeles, California, Buffalo and Vancouver welcome the thought of two new teams. It will mean they stand a good chance finishing ahead of someone. Atlanta and Long Island are not getting a fair shake. That's all it holis down to. I said before that the established team can protect 15 skaters and two goalies. As soon as one player is drafted from any- one club they are allowed to protect another. So ac- was exempt from qualifying rounds because he was among the 15 leaders on Ihe PGA tour in 1971 under the USGA point system.

But it takes experi- ence for someone to learn just hov7 capable he Is." Foli, an Intelligent, unsmil- ing f e 1 1 o w whosa steel-rim- med glasses add a degree of austerity, says he is so wound up before a game that he has difficulty eating, and finds it so hard to unwind after a game that he tosses in bed well into the night. "I'm working on my self- ha says, "f'm try- ing hard to relax more." Yet when he goes O-for-20, as he did In May, he begins to tighten the grip of his bat and the grit of his teeth. Do I have must be a persistent thought. He obviously expects a great deal of himself. He was signed by the Mets for a re- ported bonus as No. 1 free agent draft choice in 1968. After three good seasons in the minors, he spent much of 1971 on the Mets' bench; he hit .226 in 97 games. He was sometimes erralic in the field and, when the team floundered, he was distress- ingly booed. Foli received a break by going lo Montreal where a starting job was open to him. He wants to make tho most of it, in a hurry. He comes from a baseball family and, it seems, is looking over his shoulder at it. He had an older brother who, he says, only had a "cup of coffee" in the majors, with the Cali- fornia Angels. And B'oli's father was his team manager in Little League. There re- main unspoken pressures. "I talk to my dad about once a week on the says Foli, "and we both feel the same way about my ca- reer. It isn't success just being here. You've got lo do something to make yourself known. You've got to prove you can play." Pressure in the big leagues for anyone, especially for an unproven 21-year-old, Is mon- umental. Before ungen- erous fans, each trip to the tually speaking the new entries are allowed to pick and then the establishment picks. There has to be a better way of doing it. Even the amateur draft, which takes place Thursday, borders on a farce. Montreal Canadiens, who just one year ago won the Stanley Cup, for example, have four first-round picks in the amateur draft. Canadiens, after Atlanta and Long Island have had one pick each of the best amateur talent in Can- ada, will then select four players. These are players who fall into the first-year professional category and don't even have to be protected next year. How, in heaven's name, do the NHL board of governors ever expect to reach parity at this rate? Maybe I'm wrong, but from here it looks as though they don't really care and it's a shame. OVER HUES!
