Oscar nominee James Garner, who plays to a five handicap at the Bel Air Country Club, heads a strong field of pro-am entries in today's GNA/Glendale Federal scrambles tournament at the Oakmont Country Club.
Garner will tee off at 12:14 p.m. with LPGA tour rookie Tammy Fredrickson of Pasadena.
Other prominent amateurs in the 18-hole prelude to the $250,000 tournament include entertainers Dinah Shore, Jamie Farr, Mac Davis, Jim Lange and Rick Dees, and football coaches Chuck Knox and John McKay.
Shore, whose own tournament is scheduled April 3-6 at Mission Hills, will play at 8:57 a.m. with Shelley Hamlin and John Argue of Oakmont, former Southern California Golf Assn. president.
The professional field, headed by defending champion Jan Stephenson, is equally as impressive. Thirty-one of this year's 35 leading money winners are entered.
