WINNING MISS. JULY 1972 Bitchok Matches Par Leaves Curlers Afar Says: "Golfer of the Year" The curlers-golf tournament was held Wednesday and four well known curlers (left to right) Gerry Jorowski, Dave Romano, John Hanesiak and Harry Martel check'in with official starter Norm Smith. Nicklaus A Cinch, Vollmer By CHUCK SVOBODA FORT ERIE, Ont. "If Jack Nicklaus was here he'd win this going said Wayne Vollmer in summing up the Cherry Hill club course, site of the Canadian Open golf championship starting Thurs- day. The young Vancouver golfer, one of 23 Canadians in the field of 150 for the Open which runs through Sunday, said the heavy rough along the narrow fair- ways at Cherry Hill would make a power hitter such as Nicklaus the natural favorite. "He's the only one who's got the power to deal with that stuff consistently." Vollmer said the rough around the greens was especial- ly thick and matty. "You'd be much better off landing in the sand traps than having to play out of that said Vollmer. Vollmer, a regular on the United States professional Golfers Association tour since 1969, said he favored Wilf Ho- DISCUS MARK TIED STOCKHOLM (AP) Rickey Brunch of Sweden equalled the world record 224 feet, five inches with his first "throw in an international track and field meet Wednesday night. menuik of Winnipeg and George Knudson of Toronto to lead the Canadians here. "Wilf has been playing well lately. He's a scrappy competi- tor and he never gives up." Vollmer said he has been having several small problems with his own game this year. "I'm working on it and trying to get it together. I'm not hit- ting the irons well and my put- ting is bad." While he works to improve his game, Vollmer plans to con- tinue playing the U.S. PGA tour with only two stops on the Ca- nadian tour the British Co- lumbia Open and the Canada PGA championship. By JOHN DOWN Free Press Staff Writer John Bitchok almost didn't hang around long enough Wednesday to win the annual Manitoba Curling Association's golf championship at Rossmere. But, being a curler, John per- severed when the going got slower and carded a (par) to easily head a field of 280 players in his tournament debut. "I almost packed it up the play was so com- mented the muscular member of Civic-Caley's ice lanes. "But my partners talked me out of it and I'm glad they did grinned the long-hitter from Pine Ridge. Bitchok counted bogies on two of the easier holes on the front nine of the par 36-34 track, missing short putts at the sec- ond and eighth holes. After tak- ing a bogey on the llth, howev- er, he put it all together with birdies at 14, 16 and 18 to match par figures. "I chipped in from the fringe at 14 and that started the adrenalin flowing a little. But I was really crunching the ball off the tee today. Heck, if I had been putting it could have been three vor four shots summed up the new king of the golfing curlers. Bert Zaretski of Transcona and Don Stupak of Lac du Bon- net tied for second place with 74s, while John Erickson of Sel- kirk, the only player to par the front nine, had a 75. Barry Sanders: of Carman and Lou Mainella of Rossmere were next with 76s. Rossmere, which sent about four teams forward, marked up a 16-shot winning margin in the Kelly Daun Trophy event. Mainella, Les Evans 78, Norm Rogoski 80 and Bernie Aftanis 81 shared in the club team event title, while CFB's crew of Ed Razzell, Frank Marsh, Don Nutley and Jerry Wakshiwski placed second with a 331 tally.

WITH Our summer season is just getting under way and al- ready resident sportsmen must apply if they want an elk licence for'this fall.' There will be 420 licences available lor the early sea- son in hunting period A Sept. 11 to Oct. 2S in the Duck Mountain Provincial Forest. The second season in the same area will have 105 licences available in period B and will run from Dec. 11 23. There will be elk-moose licences available on a first- come first-served basis for the area around Riding Mountain National Park. This season will run from Dec. 4 to Jan. 27. All licence fees will be The early season will be for one male elk only, the second for elk of either sex and the combi- nation season will have a limit of one elk .or one moose of ei- ther sex. Once again the licences for the early elk season will be al- lotted by a public draw which will be held in the Norquay Building at p.m. on Aug. 15. Applications for this draw must reach the Dept. of Mines Resources and Environmental Management, Room 1003, Nor- quay Building, Winnipeg R3C OPS by 5 p.m. Aug. 14. Applicants must indicate in their application their choice of hunting periods A or B.

They may be obtained by applying in person to 120-lst Ave. N.E., Dauphin; 1129 Queens Ave., Brandon; and conservation officers at Neepa- wa, Roblin and Grandview, also the secretary treasurer, rural municipality of Rossburn. These licences may also be obtained in person or by writ- ing to the Dept. of Mines in the Norquay Building. Due to the difficulties that have arisen in the past over the elk-moose hunting around Rid- ing Mountain National Park, sportsmen are strongly advised not to purchase a licence until they first have permission to hunt on the private land that completely surrounds park. A Woodland Caribou season will again be held in northern Manitoba. Anyone wishing such a licence should make written applications to the Norquay Building before 5 p.m. Aug. 1. There are only a limited number of licences available and should there be more appli- cants than licences a public draw will be held. Licence fee for caribou will be for resi- dent and for non-resident. There are eight game hunting areas in the north and north- western part of the province with the seasons running from Sep. 18 until Dec. 16 depending upon which area you are cover- ing.

Even I've done that, although I know this can be fatal to the swing. The hands loosen, then re-grip as the downswing is begun and, of course, the club- face is thrown off-line. Occasionally I remind myself that my left wrist should be straight, that the grip with the last three fingers of the left hand and the two middle of the right should be firm. You should think about this, too. at. 1972 NAT'L. New.. Syn. IMPROVE YOUR DRIVING TECHNIQUE! Get Billy CMper't free pamphlet. "The Fiirway Drive."

Alberto Rivadeneira the lon- j gest hitter on the tour is also the leading money winner with earned with a first, third and fourth place finish in the three tournaments to date.
