After patching his slashed finger with a band-aid, a man wearing dark sunglasses approached Lynn Shackelford and offered an unsolicited testimonial. "This is what I like about you," he said as if he had known the former UCLA basketball standout for years. "You are so prepared. What other golf course would have band-aids?"

He wore dark-rimmed glasses that made him look like Clark Kent and he played defense like Superman. Now, Kenny Heitz is gone, leaving UCLA basketball fans with fond memories and sorrow. He is a magical name from the 10-championship John Wooden era that will never be forgotten, or under-appreciated. In Heitz's three seasons - freshmen couldn't play on the varsity then - UCLA had a record of 88-2. At the end of each season - 1967, '68 and '69 - the Bruins took home an NCAA title trophy.

It might sound silly but Lynn Shackelford says it's true: Playing basketball for John Wooden may have been the ideal training ground for working with Chick Hearn. "You realized," says the former UCLA forward and ex-Lakers commentator, "that you were only part of the machine." Maybe that's why Shackelford and Keith Erickson, who between them helped UCLA win five NCAA championships, were such ideal broadcasting foils for the late, great Lakers announcer. They accepted their roles.

Although it's been 25 years since Lynn Shackelford attended UCLA, the former basketball standout still has a passion for the Bruins. Shackelford, owner and operator of Sinaloa Golf Course in Simi Valley, is quite confident UCLA will defeat USC in its annual cross-town rivalry football game Saturday. As a gesture of his confidence, Shackelford is offering a day of golf with no greens fees if the Bruins defeat the Trojans. But what if UCLA loses?

Hide and seek, Lynn Shackelford style. He loses every time. Dollars to doughnuts, bet he can be found at the Sinaloa Golf Course in Simi Valley. Calling the former UCLA basketball standout at home is almost surely a waste of a dime. "I will be (at Sinaloa) in the mornings, afternoon and evenings," the message informs callers, "basically every day of the week."

He probably knows every blade of Kikuyu and every branch of eucalyptus at Riviera Country Club, which is going to make Geoff Shackelford more popular than the barranca when the U.S. Senior Open comes around in July. As it turns out, Shackelford is sort of the voice of history at Riviera, the unofficial club historian and keeper of the faith of one of the most famous golf courses in the world.

A 30-year-old Simi Valley golf course that has fallen into disrepair will get a $250,000 make-over, the park district has announced. Under an agreement with the Rancho Simi Recreation and Park District, a private golf company will pay for improvements at the Sinaloa Golf Course on Madera and Irvine roads in exchange for a 15-year lease, district General Manager Jerry Gladden said.

For those who say a golf course in Huntington Beach Central Park makes good economic sense, I say go over the facts presented by Lynn Shackelford of American Golf at the recent Town Hall meeting. How can he justify the claim that the city will make up to $1 million per year? Shackelford can't. Meadowlark Golf Course, which has been operated by American Golf since 1974, has averaged $256,000 over the past three years, most of which goes to paying off a $150,000 mortgage. Open space for the new course will cost the city dearly in park acquisition funds.
