Long Ball Hitters Favored
In American Golf Classic
AKRON. Ohio (UPI) The
long ball hitters Jack Nick-
laus, Arnold Palmer and Julius
Boros among them were fav
ored today in the. field of 90 tee
ing off in the first round of the
$55,000 American Golf Classic.
Because the long and exacting
Firestone Country , Club course
covers 7,165. yards, booming and
accurate tee shots are the key
to success. The fairways are nar
row and well bunkered, leaving
little margin for error.
The odds-makers made golrs
"big throe" the favorites, quot
ing Palmer at 4-1, Boros at 5-1
and Nicklaus at 6-1. A lot of golf-
middleweight boxer from Eu
gene, was killed in on auto
mobile accident lote Tuesday
near Eugene. Horn was to
have fought his 19th profes
sional bout on Saturday. (UPI
Ore. Thur., Aug. 22, 1963
ers did not agree v.ilh the Nick
laus odds.
"If big Jack hits 'em straight,
he's likely to run away from the
field," predicted Joe Campbell.
"It would take super golf on the
part of Palmer, Boros or any
other players to beat him if ne
is his usual self off the tees."
Nicklaus wasn't too happy with
his driving Wednesday in his only
tuneup round for the Classic,
"fcy tempo is off," he com
plained. But nfter spending sev
eral hours on the practice tee he
appeared to be getting his driver
back on the beam.
Boros said lie was "hitting the
ball all right."
"I just hope I can keep it up,'
he added. The U. S. Open champ
ion is noted for the success he
has had in playing tough courses,
and tile Firestone layout is con
sidered the toughest in the busi
ness. "No golf course in the world
has a stretch of six tough holes
like they have here," said Ed
Furgol, a former U. S. Open
champion. "Every hole from the
fourth through the ninth is a
tough one. The fourth and sixth
holes are' specially tough. They
should be par fives instead of
par fours."
Don Fairfield, another tour vet
eran, agreed with him.
You must can't make a mis
take hero," Fairfield pointed out.
"Yet the course is such that it
is easy to make mistakes."

The New York Yankees are
having a brawl as they merrily
dance their way to another Amer
ican League pennant.
As for those skeptics who have
protested the lack of fight in the
junior circuit. They would have
had a ball themselves nan tney
been at Yankee Stadium Wednes
day night.
In the best extra-mural scuffle
of the season, New York first
baseman Joe Pepitone precipitat
ed a general melee between mem
bers of the Yankees and Cleve
land Indians after being hit by a
pitch thrown by Gary Bell in the
eighth inning of the second game
of a twi-night doubleheader. The
ensuing scene somewhat resem
bled a barnyard dance as players
grappled with anyone in reach.
Pepitone, who earlier in the
game had been hit by starter
Barry Latman and then was
brushed back by Bell' before being
hit again, was tossed out of the
game when the umpires finally
restored order. Bell received a
varning from plate umpire Lou
Dimuro, which automatically
calls for a $50 fine.
Yanks Win Two
Regarding the-fight the Yan
kees are paid to win, they took
both ends of the doubleheader by
identical 3-1 scores. The sweep,
engineered behind the fine pitch
ing of Al Downing and Stan Wil
liams, boosted New York into a
10-game lead over the second
place Chicago White Sox.
