AP Newsfeatnres Sports Editor
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. This
Sunshine City saw its greatest
round of competitive golf the day
Ben Hogan of Hersliey, Pa., shot a
nine under par 63.
It was over the 6,406-yard Lake
wood Country Club course in the
recent $10,000 St. Petersburg open.
Now you would think that such a
phenomenal score would be enough
to walk off with top prize. But
Bantam Ben, who weighs slightly
less than 150 pounds soaking wet,
faded during the. final two rounds
and wound up tied for third place.
The talk was all about Hoean's
round when veterans of the fair
ways put their heads together.
Georg-e Schneiter, PGA tourna
ment, manager who now has full
authority to disqualify, suspend
or bawl out any golfers swinging
fists instead of clubs, and Bill
Cody, referee of local tourna
ments, looked back and came up
with what they believe are the
best scores for a competitive 18
holes ever posted.
They were all record 62s with
Hogan, a former Texan, responsi
ble for two of them. Ben's first ;
62 was in 1941 at the Sequoia Coun-1
try Club course, in Oakland, Calif.
The following year he repeated the'
figure at Chicago's Ridgomoor
course in the National Victory
Open. Other 62s were:
Johnny Farrell at LaGorce, Mi- ;
ami Beach, in the late 20s.
Walter Hagen, old Bellair-Bilt-;
more. Clearwater, Fla.
Lawson Little, Willow Springs
San Antonio, in the 1941 Texas
ope n.

Little's f2 was by far the most on the front nine.' The officials
fa:.- vf?,,
r r
j sensational, believe Fred Cor
coran, PGA promotion director.
"1 remember the day well," said
Little Just after he copped the top
$2,000 prize in the St. Pete open
with a 16 under par 272. "It was
: on February 8, 1941, my fifth wed
i ding anniversary,
j "The weather was so bad that it
was the only time I ever remember
that fires were built at' each tee to
keep the golfers warm. All the
; golfers wore overcoats, shedding
then went into a huddle around a
pot belly stove in the clubhouse
and decided to continue play.
"That Willow Springs course is
a long one. I recall that it was
impossible to reach the greens on
par five holes in two strokes. I
had nine birdies, nine one-putt
greens and nine pars."
Gem Sarazen, Mr. Golf to old
timers, was spotted at a table
with Bob Hannegan, expostmas
ter general who is president of
the St. Louis Cardinals. The
bronzed links veteran was asked
about Johnny Farrell 's 62 at La
Gorce on the possibility that he
might have played that day.
"Do I know about it?" shouted
Gene. "Why I watched Johnny
that day. All his 62 did was knock
me out of first prize of $6,000.
"But you're looking at the man
who had the best collective score
in golf. It was my 100 strikes for
the last 28 holes in the 1932 open
at the old Fresh Meadow course in
Flushing, L. I."
Bobby Locke, the South African
who won $24,327.50 in six months
last year, says the best two rounds
of golf he ever saw were the 62-64
put together by Johnny Palmer of
Badin, N. C, at Tucson in January.
Yet Palmer, getting his 62 the day
follow ing a 62 by Skip Alexander of
Lexington, Ky., only finished third.
Locke, incidentally, is disliked
by many of America's pros. They
are angry because Ixx-ke gripes
no matter what his score. "And
he always turns in a fine card,"
says Chirk Harbert of Detroit.
Locke came ap with a 84, second
best round here, in the final day.
Yet just before he went out he
complained of the winter tour
being too tough a grind.
George Schneiter adds that the
lowest 72-hole PGA score on rec
ord is Ben Hogan 's 261 shot in 1943
at the Portland, Oreg , Golf Club
and average of a little over 65 a
round.
Bethel Six Wins Opener

35-13 As Bethel

Quarter-Finals
The Bethel girls, winners 35 to
13 over Old Fort in their initial
encounter, were scheduled to meet
Clearmont in the "Tournament of
Chsmpions" last night at the Ashe
ville city auditorium in a quarter
finals game.
Tipton Hill defeated the Bethel
boys 48-33 Wednesday to eliminate
the sole Haywood county quint
from the tourney. The Blue De
mons drew a first round bye, and
were playing Tipton Hill in a
quarter-finals contest.
rarmer paced ine lielhel six as
it rolled over Old Fort, dropping
16 points through the (basket. Still
undefeated this year, the Bethel
sextet is rated as one of the strong
est in the tournament.
Bethel's quint scrapped on even
terms with the Tipton Hill five
during the first half, which ended
20-all, but was una fie to match
the Tipton from there on out.
Bill Trull, Blue Demon center, was
the top scoring player with 19
points, while L. McKinney and
Phillips were hottest for the win
ners with 14 each.
