Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 17, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE IETHBRIDOE HERAID Saturday, Jurn 17, Always ready to voice his opinion PGA yells when Dave Hill starts to talk DENVER, "Most golfers on the PGA golf says Dave Hill in no uncertain toiics, "seem to be afraid to voice an opinion about anytliing." That has never been said about Hill, his sport's most outspoken individualist. He has strong opinions about virtually everything and will express them at the drop of a tee. He has been fined for Ms remarks, and last year sued the Professional Golfers' As- sociation and its Tourna- ment Players Division for, among other things, "violat- ing his constitutional right to Tree speech." (The suit was settled out of court with neither side publicly pro- claiming victory.) "I don't see why athletes cannot have the freedom to say what they Hill says. "Especially Ui a sport like golf where I'm my own boss and liave to foot all my own bills. "I keep hearing that I'm controversial, but I don't go around looking for trouble. Most of the tilings I've said that got a lot of attention were in response to report- ers' questions. I've never ducked a question and I don't plan to start now. "I suppose the writers come to me because they know most of the other play- ers aren't going to say any- thing. There are more than a few guys on the tour who are glad when I speak up, because then they don't have to." A couple of Hill's more notorious remarks were di- rected at a U.S. Open site and British galleries, respec- tively. His views probably were concurred with by most of his fellow players but they remained quieter. When asked what was lacking at the 1970 U.S. Open site, the Hazeltine course in Minnesota, Hill cracked: "Just 80 acres of com and a few cows." The nation's headline writers went wild. After an unhappy experi- ence with a customarily pa- triotic British golf crowd, Hill was asked if he would return to Great Britain. he replied, "if 1 die and my casket is shipped here by mistake." Lost in translation, unfor- tunately, was Hill's puckish sense of humor. He intended both remarks as much in fun as anytliing else. "Nowadays everybody takes golf so deathly seri- he says. "It's strictly business with guys like Frank Beard. They're always complaining how much work it is. This game wasn't meant to be played so seriously. It's for not a religion. "I get as fed up with it as anybody else who does some- thing to excess. I can get to where I hate tournament golf, but I still love to come home to Denver and play with hacker friends. It's siiU only a game, you know." Because he gets so tense if he plays the tour for long stretches, Hill is cutting down Us schedule. He has played In only about half the tournaments and has coma back from a slump by win- ning one title and earning more than already. "In the past I've stayed out here and beaten my head against the wall and lost 35 pounds a says Hill, who weighs only 155 top weight with a couple of clubs under his arm. "It isn't worth it. Now I get away and forget about it and relax. I pick my spots." On the when he thinks something needs saying.
