"Player is the finest chipper, putter and sand player on the tour. He could walk away with it." Player, seeking to add the Open to his Masters crown for the first two legs of an unprecedented professional grand slam, stroked Winged Foot's marbletop greens for an even-par 70 and the lead in Thursday's first round. Putting troubles hurt most of Player's rivals, including Jack Nicklaus, the pre- tournament favorite to capture his 15th major title. Nicklaus three-putted three of the first four holes, added another three-putt later on. and shot a 75. Miller, who won at Oakmont Pa., last year with a record- closing 63, also shot a 75. WRIST IS HURTING Tom Weiskopf. the reigning British Open champion, fired a 76 and said he almost withdrew because of an ailing left wrist. Two-time winner Lee Trevino had a 78. For the first time since 1958, a player failed to break par in the opening round of this championship. Mike Reasor of Seattle, who shot 135 in one round at Talla- hassee. Fla., earlier this year after falling off a horse, and Lou Graham of Nashville, Tenn., were tied for second at 71. one stroke off Player's lead. Two former PGA champions, Bobby Nichols and Ray Floyd, were in a group at 72, along with Bruce Crarnpton of Australia, Jim Colbert and rookie Barney Thompson. Veteran Arnold Palmer thrilled a huge gallery by shooting a 73. which placed him in a tie with more than half a dozen others. George Knudson of Toronto, the only Canadian in the tournament, had a 78. CONDITIONS IDEAL? The day was clear and bright, if a bit crisp. The course had been softened by a heavy overnight shower. Playing conditions seemed ideal. Then everything seemed to come for all of the favorites except Player. Of the 150 players in the field. 44 failed to break 80. That list included former Open winners Ken Venturi, Billy Casper and Gene Littler, former Masters champion Bob Goalby and Hubert Green, a winner of three tournaments this season. the hardest course I've ever seen said Colbert. England's Tony Jacklin, who had a 78. made a 10-1 wager with a friend. to that no one will break par for four rounds. "A score of 290 (10 over par) could win it." said Palmer. "It's very difficult, but it's fair. I think it's one of the best we've played in a long time. I wish we had courses like this everv week." FLO.'FLO .'LOOK AT THIS HAND. I DON'T MIND BEING THE BREADWINNER, BUT 'E ME AS AN ALL-NIGH.T ftAKERY.-.' Cub's Bonham loses I-0 five-hitter Unearned run did it THE CANADIAN PRESS For six innings, the score- board at Candlestick Park wasn't working, which was fine as far as pitcher Jim Barr of San Francisco Giants was concerned. Then, in the seventh inning, the Scoreboard and Giants came to life and Barr had a 1-0 National League baseball win over Chicago Cubs. "I don't like to look at the Scoreboard when I'm in the dugout because, if I see who's coming up the next inning. I might get said Barr. The Scoreboard started working just in time to register the game's only run, scored on a Cub error, a wild pitch and a single by San Francisco's Gary Thomasson. That was all Barr, who pitched a six-hitter, needed. Rain prevented Thursday's only other National League at Atlanta between the Braves and New York Mets. Kansas City Royals edged Milwaukee Brewers 5-4 in Thursday's lone American League game. Steve Ontiveros led off San Francisco's seventh inning with a grounder that first baseman Billy Williams let go under his glove.' Ontiveros made it to second, went to third on Bill Bonham's wild pitch, then scored when Thomasson singled to centre. Chicago manager Whitey Lockman. noting that Bonham had tossed a losing five-hitter, muttered: he pitched a good game. But no one will know- that tomorrow. They'll just see that his record is 4-9." Barr. 3-3, has bounced back and forth between starting and relieving roles the past two seasons. John Mayberry's two-run homer in the first inning and Vada Pinson's solo shot that started a three-run second carried Kansas City past the Brewers. Cookie Rojas" sacrifice fly and Amos Otis" double provided the winning margin.

Al McKec was the winning pitcher despite allowing solo homers by Mike Teahen and John Osborne and needing sixth-inning relief held from Don Pasutlo. Glen Winder, the first of three Edmonton pitchers, was the loser. Ron Kopitzkc also homered for Red Deer while import shortstop Phil I'rabe produced four hats. In Calgary. Larry Nakonachey and Carlo Mejia produced extra-base hits in the sixth inning to spark a five-run rally as Calgary- Giants downed Calgary Jimmies 7-3. NaJconachey produced a two-run triple and scored on an error to break a 2-2 tie and Mcjia capped the outburst with a two-run homer. Ray Forgie scattered seven hits to earn the pitching triumph. Meanwhile Barrhead Cardinals, a new entry in the defeated Edmonton Tigers 5-3 to win their first game in the league after six losses. Dave Robb hit a bases- empty home run as Cardinals scored two runs in the third inning to tie the game 2-2 but Wayne Commodore pounded a solo homer in the bottom of the third to put Tigers up 3-2, In the top of the fifth. Lome Niven drove in his second run of the game and Del Schmffrick grounded out to plate Terry Hendley with what proved the winning run.

SINGER IN SURGERY ANAHEIM iAPi Bill Singer will undergo surgery for a ruptured lumbar disc in his hack, sidelining the California Angels" leading pitcher probably for the rest of the American League baseball season, the Angels said Thursday. The operation was 1o br performed Friday at Si Joseph's Hospital in nearby Orange, where the 30- year-old right handrr has been in hospital since Sunday.

Kansas City starter Paul Splittorff in the sixth inning with three runs across the nobody out, choked off a Milwaukee rally and pre- served the triumph. "It was the same old stuff I've always said Garber. who struck out six and yielded only two hits and one run. "I don't have any explanation for the strikeouts. I was throwing the ball over. They had to swing at some borderline pitches. I just lucked out." John Briggs hit two doubles to drive in two of the Brewers' runs. NFL talks break off NEW YORK (AP) The tenuous thread on which nego- tiations had resumed this week between the National Football League Players Association and the league's management council appeared to snap Thursday with the angrv termination of talks. Management council called the breakoff "a walk-out" by the players association, but Bill Curry of Houston Oilers, president of the players' group, denied that charge. "That simply isn't true." said Curry. "No one got up and walked out. certainly not the players." He said the talks ended at the suggestion of federal mediator Jim Scearce. "We spent three days listen- ing to an exchange of philosophies and ideas really a lot of said Curry. Discussions this week centred on the so-called "freedom issues." which the management council calls "the structure of the game." A spokesman for the management council said that the owners' group had responded to each of 13 demands in this area and said it is willing to discuss "modifications of existing practices, but will not discuss elimination of them." Included in these issues is the controversial Rule" that allows the commissioner to set compensation for a team that loses a player to another club after the athlete has played out his option. "Frankly, we were dis- appointed." said Curry. "Their response to our de- mands was essentially a non- response. The mediator suggested that it was just as well to end the session. And that was how it ended." Curry said he was not certain talks would resume as scheduled next Tuesday in Washington. "I don't he said. "Our executive council has scattered. I suppose the negotiator will be contacting both sides. I expect them at some point to respond to our demands." The negotiators are working against a July 1 strike deadline. Later, the following statement was issued by the management council: "The breakoff of the NFL contract negotiations at this critical time is both tragic and irresponsible. "No matter what their original motivation, the totality of the players' freedom demands would result in each one of football players selling their services to 38 football teams in the United States alone each year without concern for teams, team-mates and fans. "We do not think we could represent the resultant product to our fans as a truly competitive brand of football."
