Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 15, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Leads Open with a 67 Player taken off sick list OAKMONT, Pa. (AP) Be- ware the sick man in golf! That adage, kicked around important championships for years, was resurrected after Gary Player's brilliant 67 in the first round of the United States Open tournament, Thursday. At the beginning of the week, the little guy from South Africa, 14 pounds underweight and weak after a 40-day layoff for two surgical operations, was so distressed over his game that he told intimates: "I am playing miserably. I can't get back my competitive edge. I wish I was home." He stuck it out, practising for hours, and Wednesday, playing with Arnold Palmer, began to recover his renowned touch. Thursday, while most of the 150-man field fretted over the marble-fast greens, Player toured the Oakmont Country Club course in four un- der par and took a three-stroke lead into today's second round. A pair of other recent hospital cases were close behind. Ray Floyd, who said an at- tack of the flu this spring knocked him out of the tour for two months, shot a 70 and was tied with Lee Trevino and Jim Colbert. Gene Littler, who underwent major cancer surgery 14 months ago, was one of the six players at even-par 71. The group included defending cham- pion Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, New Zealander Bob Charles, young Johnny Miller and Ralph Johnston, 32-year-old electrical engineer who joined .the tour in 1971. Bob Panasiuk of Windsor, Ont, had a while Ken Trowbridge of Toronto fired an 80 with scores of 40 on each of the front and back nines. Player knocked in six birdies, with putts of 15 feet on the first Short sport CARDS PAY CLAIM ST.

He two-putted once from 60 feet, another time from 70 feet, both times for par. "You may not realize until Sunday how good a round that really Player said. "I would like to take three 72s the next three days and not play. That's how hard I think the course is." Winner of every major profes- sional crown at least once and in some cases twice, Player had a cyst removed from his left knee in February and, before he could recover, underwent a bladder operation. "I was in the hospital 12 days. I was out of action for 40 days. When I came to America late last month, I had played in only one tournament." Littler, who won the Open In 1931, underwent a cancer oper- ation in April, 1972, for removal of a lymph gland. Musclas were stripped from his back and side. There was fear he would never play again. Yet he rifled his iron shots at the pins Thursday and turned in a steady round of three bogeys, three birdies and 12 pars.
