Saturday's 36-hole final. In the semi-finals, Gabrielsen shattered the hopes of 19-year-old Martin Poxon with an astonishing 45- foot putt and cruised to a 5 and 4 triumph. Earlier, the American scored another 5 and 4 victory over quarter-final opponent Peter Davidson. Homer defeated John Owens of the U.S. by one hole in the quarter-finals and then beat Scotland's Hugh Stuart by two holes to reach the final. Gabrielsen said before he went out against Poxon that it would be hard to match par in the wind which had buffetted Muirfield all week. He was one over on the front nine with a 37 but was playing one under on the back nine when the match ended. He birdied the long fifth where he was on the green in two, and turned three up. Gabrielsen birdied the llth with a 300-yard drive, putting him four up. Poxon, a surprise semi- finalist, writes notes to himself on his scorecard such as: "Don't think defeat." Although defeat stared him in the face, he birdied the 381- yard 12th by sending his shot out of the rough to within four feet of the pin. Gabrielsen two-putted for a bogey. Gabrielsen. 32. was back on target at the short 13th, however. He went four up with a par and polished off the match at the 14th in classic style. He drove, fired a three- wood and then calmly sank a 45-foot birdie putt. Save Gas Increase Power Prolong Engine Life with a Dual Exhaust System No Pickup and Return of your car from work or home.

Bep Guidolin signs with Scouts KANSAS CITY (AP) Bep Guidolin, former coach of Boston Bruins, was named Friday as coach of the National Hockey League expansion Kansas City'Scouts. Guidolin, who resigned May 27 after coaching Boston Bruins to the Stanley Cup finals, brushed aside reports that Bruins managing director Harry Sinden plans to file charges with the NHL accusing the Scouts of talking to Guidolin while Boston had him under contract. "There was no said the 49-year-old Barrie, Ont., native. Guidolin spent almost 20 years in the Bruin organization as player, scout and coach. He had been seeking a five-year contract with Boston, and resigned after being told it was against club policy. Terms of his Scouts contract were not made public, but it was described as "multi-year." Guidolin began his profes- sional hockey career in 1942 with the Bruins at the age of 16, the youngest player ever to compete in the NHL. He later played for Detroit and Chicago until his retirement as an active player in 1953. Guidolin coached Oshawa Generals of the Ontario Hockey Association Major Junior A series to the Memorial Cup finals in 1966 and two years ago coached London Knights to the OHA playoits. After coaching Boston Braves, the Bruins' American League farm club for 2Vz years, Guidolin took over the Bruins midway through the 1973 season. In his first full year in the NHL, Boston had a 52-17-9 record and won the Eastern Division title by 13 points over Montreal. The Bruins beat Toronto in four playoff games and dispoed of Chicago in six. They fell to Philadelphia Flyers in the six-game Stanley Cup series. Guidolin said Friday he views his opportunity in Kansas City as a "fantastic challenge." But he cautioned Scouts fans against expecting too much too soon. Asked about the type of players he will try to acquire, Guidolin, pointing first to his stomach and then to his heart, answered: "When an athlete puts on the skates, he's gotta have it here and here. If it comes to fisticuffs. I think Kansas City will be proud of us."
