DALLAS (AP) — Defending champion John Grace took the first round of match play in the 1997 Trans-Mississippi tournament Thursday. It wasn’t easy.
Grace, of Fat Worth, had to rally cm the back nine to stick around for another day. After playing poorly on the front nine, he took the lead with a birdie on the par-3 16th hole. Then, he watched as 64th-ranked Ryan Hill of Longview missed a 15-foot par putt on No. 18 which would have tied the match.
“I didn’t think about losing, I just wanted to play well and put some heat on him," Grace said.
Medalist Chip Stewart wasn’t so lucky The Dallas goiter, who won the club championship a record 13 times, was eliminated by Hollis Sullivan, the 63 rd-ranked player in the field, 3 and 2.
“That the way it goes in match play some of the time," Stewart said. “Just because I won medalist honors, that doesn’t mean much for match play.”

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Although their fans are loving it, the Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers aren't ecstatic over an extra week of training camp and a fifth exhibition game.
Some veterans, in feet, would prefer to jump straight into the regular
“They pretty much know who’s going to make the team, so let’s just cut out exhibition games,” wide receiver Don Beebe said •
“Nobody likes training camp,” All-Pro safety LeRoy Butler said “But this is important. Everybody’s trying to push us off that hill.”
Before the Packers open defense of their title on Sept I against Chicago, they’ve got five exhibitions, beginning wife Miami on July 26.
With almost no starting jobs up for grabs and precious few roster spots available, rookies aod free agents worked out for the first time on Thursday.
