This left the stronger teams in the competition, and closer scores are expected as the tourney moves into ils final slages. By FRANK ECK 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. Herman Keiser, El liio. Tucson All., in IH4. them nnlu I,. fWo . Skip Alexander, El Rio, January j "The tournament officials met of this year. ant osk(ci jf i thought we should Johnny Palmer, Er Rio, January continue. 'Well,' I said, 'the course of this year. js playable because 1 just had a 31 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 In Tourney Of Champions; Blue Demons Are Beaten Old Fort Girls Fall 35-13 As Bethel Wins Advance To 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. Girls lineup: Grid Candidates Report For Spring Workouts Approximately 40 candidates for the Waynesville high football team reported this week for spring training lo Coach C. E. Weather by.
