Forty years ago at the 1955 U.S. Open, Ben Hogan finished playing his 72nd hole at the Olympic Club in San Francisco and Gene Sarazen offered him congratulations. Sarazen then told a national TV audience that Hogan had just won another Open title. He was wrong. Still out on the course, back at the 14th hole, 33-year-old Jack Fleck held a golf club and destiny in his hands.

A lot of coaches seem to be unhappy about the new three- point goal in college basketball, but not Lou Carnesecca, the St. John's coach. "I think it makes a big man of the little guy," said Carnesecca, a little guy. "It's a home run with the bases loaded." Carnesecca did have some reservations, however. "Nineteen feet is a Mickey Mouse shot." he said. "Maybe 23 or 24 feet would have been better." Then, there's the matter of strategy. "Three of 10 three-point shots is nine points," he calculated.

Defending champion Arnold Palmer did not try to hide his pleasure after scoring a record-setting 11-stroke victory in the Seniors Tournament Players Championship Sunday at Beachwood, Ohio. "I feel like I hit the ball for four days as well as I have for some time," Palmer said after shooting a 68 final round for a 14-under par 274 total at the Canterbury Golf Club. "I felt I had control of the ball. I didn't hit more than a few bad shots and I feel very pleased about that."

Chi Chi Rodriguez shot a two-under-par 70 Thursday to take the first-round lead in the $260,000 PGA Seniors Championship. Rodriguez, a three-time winner in 1986, his first full season on the Senior PGA Tour, was one stroke ahead of former PGA Seniors champions Joe Jimenez and Jack Fleck. No other players in the 131-player field finished under par on the 6,500-yard Champion course at PGA National. "The course is set up very hard, but that's the way it should be," Rodriguez said.

On a Canadian Open scoreboard that looked as if it were turned upside down, non-winner Buddy Gardner had the lead and Curtis Strange was the anchorman. Gardner, winless in 13 seasons on the PGA Tour, overcame cold, windy conditions with some fine putting en route to a 67 to take a one-stroke lead Saturday in the third round at Oakville, Canada.

Bogeys by Buddy Gardner and Dan Forsman, their only misfires of the day, left the two golfers tied for the lead at 206 after Saturday's third round of the $600,000 Houston Open at The Woodlands, Tex.
