Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 22, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Pat Sullivan If you ask the 1974 Chinook Classic golf tournament lhat ended Monday at Henderson Lake.was the best in the brief history of the event. Co-sponsored by Labatt's Brewery and CHEC the three-day tourney is getting bigger and better each year. The only thing repetitious about the classy tourney is Keith Alexander. But that can't be helped. one of the finest amateur golfers in all of stormed to his second straight Chinook Classic title with what could only be described as a brilliant one under par at the Lake Layout. Alexander's 69 came on a day when the sun failed to shine and cold winds blew in off the lake making golf a less than pleasant task. But not for Cool Keith. It was once said he has ice water in his veins. Maybe that's his secret. You must it works. One young man who lent a great deal of class to the tourney was 24-year-old Rick Folk of Saskatoon. Folk left Lethbridge Monday evening and by the time you read will be a professional golfer. He told me Monday he pians to play mostly in Saskatchewan this summer and then seek a berth on the Canadian Professional Golfers tour next year. Plagued by one of the worst winters in Folk didn't get much of a chance to play much golf in Saskatoon prior to this weekend but he played well. His rounds of 71-72 and 76 left him in second behind Alexander. he did win.the horse race with a brilliant chip shot on the final hole forcing a showdown with Ken Wasslen which he won. Besides being one fine shotmaker Folk is also very capable as a skip during winter curling months. This year he skipped the Canadian mixed curling championship rink from Saskatoon. I can't for the life of me see where it will help his curling that but he says it certainly doesn't hurt. The only complaints I heard came from Folk's horse race Wasslen. the last time I'll play this bush course he said after losing in a chip off for the second straight year in the horse race. can't think of any course I hate worse than this I won't be With this sort of one can't say that he'll be missed. While 60 of the 160 entries in the weekend tourney were receiving their winnings a special presentation took place Monday afternoon in the clubhouse. For a good many the face of Tom Snowden has been a familiar one at any time of the day at Henderson Lake. who gave up stubble fields for the rough of a course years has given unselfishly of himself and his time to the Lake. He has been instrumental in making the club the success it is today. So it was more than fitting that he be recognized for his efforts. Logan club president exponent of the latest rally cry the presented Tom with an engraved plaque and a life membership to the club. The gesture moved Snowden and the gathering as well as he received a standing ovation. Snowden says that working around the on a strictly volunteer has kept him young. If that's the he should get many more years of use out of his life membership. One of the surprises of the three-day tourney was the play of Don former Alberta amateur champion and another young golfer expected to turn professional shortly. I wondered why a golfer of his capabilities was having all kinds of trouble with the Lake Layout. He shot rounds of 78-74 and then 77 to finish an' unfamiliar spot for Graham. it was learned that he has been hitting the books hard of late and hasn't had a chance to sharpen his game. I knew there had to be an excuse. Graham is just too good a golfer to finish 10th without good reasoning. And Bill Labatt's Brewery representative indicated that the Blue Boys would be back in full force for the 1975 Chinook Classic. I don't think it surprised Henderson Golf Club in particular Earl club professional. Francis runs a class one lots of people would like to have their endorsement on. No raise for Ti-Cats HAMILTON Al defensive back with Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the Canadian Football lost Tuesday litigation attempting to gain additional compensation for an ex- tended Eastern Football Conference schedule this 1974 season. Mr. Justice W. A.

Red Sox hitting at a torrid clip ASSOCIATED PRESS Manager Darrell Johnson of Boston Red Sox flashed a big grin. That's what happens when your team is hitting.

Bill defeated the Yankees but needed relief from Diego Segui in the eighth to clinch the Red Sox' victory. John Mayberry drove in three runs with a homer and a double to power the Royals over the Angels.

Mayberry put Kansas City ahead 1-0 in the first inning Ken Brett likes to hit ASSOCIATED PRESS Ken Brett's a hitting pitcher who enjoys making life miser- able for opposing batters and pitchers. take a lot of pride in my Brett said after pitching Pittsburgh Pirates to an 8-4 victory over the Montreal Expos Tuesday night.

Ed Farmer of the making his second NL start after American League stops in Detroit and Cleveland and bus stops in Reno and Sarasota in the checked the Cardinals on four hits before leaving in the seventh inning. Bill Robinson's three-run climaxing a four-run gave Farmer his second win.
