PGA Tourney
Hill-Billy Defeats Corp.
Jim Turnesa, 2 and 1, to
Win Major 1942 Golf Title
Sammy Snead, they said, never
would win a national golf cham
pionship, because something al
ways seemed to happen to him
in the closing stages of a tourna
ment when the galleries were
running wild and the players'
hearts were in their throats.
They were wrong. Sammy
held the professional golfers as
sociation championship today
and had $2000 worth of war
bonds in his pocket as he left for
Washington to be inducted into
the navy's physical training pro
gram. '
The 3 0-y ear-old star from the
hill country, "after having suf
fered probably more major dis
appointments than any top flight
golfer, finally came through
with a 2 to 1 victory over Corp.
Jim Turnesa in yesterday's 36
hole title match at the Seaview
club here. . ',
It was a fighting victory, too.
Sam stood three down at the
halfway point. The crowd of
3000 was vociferously pulling
against his every shot and root
ing for the swarthy little soldier
from Fort Dix. And under those
circumstances Snead went out to
shoot some of the greatest home
stretch golf ever seen.
A triumph for Turnesa un
doubtedly would have been
more popular. -The little guy
with the nerves of steel and no
business whatsoever in the finals
of a P.GA. championship, had
captured the fancy of everybody.
The crowd had been cheering
his every shot for two days since
he scored upset victories over
Ben Hogan and Byron Nelson,
two of golfdom's greatest play
ers. Yet Snead richly deserved
his victory. -' -

Haynes Holds 'em But
Five Errors dc Job
Minus the services of its star second baseman and Co-manager
Ernie Bishop, the Pelican baseball club dropped its first
homo start of the 1942 season Sunday afternoon at Recreation
park, losing a 6-1 decision to the Bend Loggers of the Oregon
State league.
Errors figured heavily in the Klamath defeat as the visiting
Loggers earned only one run off the nine-hit pitching of Virg
Haynes, the Pelican No. 1 hurl-
er. Five costly miscucs contrib
uted to the Bend scoring and
allowed Manager Jack Gor
don's crew to tally in five of
the first six frames.
Jim Farmer, the veteran
righthander for the Invaders,
limited the locals to six scat
tered safeties and but for an
error by Catcher Houtchcns he
would have posted a shutout.
Klamath's Paul Crapo, who
paced the Pelicans with two
hits in four tries, punched out
a double as first man up in the
second, advanced to third on
a passed ball and crossed the
plate when Houtchcns let a
strike get away from him,
Volk Slugger
Strikeouts for the tilt were
about evenly divided for each
club. Farmer posting 10 whiffs
to 12 marked up by Haynes.
The latter also allowed two
bases on balls.
Second Baseman Volk of the
Loggers was the best batter of
the day as he poked out three
hits in five trips to the platter.
Manager Gordon and Paul Cra
po were next in line with two
apiece. Pinch-hitter Roy Brad
ford of the Pelicans laced out
a single in his only trip to the
batter's box. '
Next weekend the Dorris
Lumberjacks come to Klamath
Falls to open the Oregon-California
league season here. Two
contests are on the docket, a
Saturday evening tilt scheduled
for 6:30 p. m. and a Sunday
engagement billed to get under
