John Huston and Amy Benz won the $800,000 J.C. Penney Golf Classic Sunday, beating the team of Larry Mize and Martha Nause by two strokes in a tense windup at Largo, Fla. that prompted Mize to complain about the tournament operation. "Who ran the scoreboard here?" he asked after leaving the 18th green at the Bardmoor Country Club. "We thought all we had to do was sink a putt on the 18th to reach a tie and cause a playoff."

Had wagering been allowed in the final of the California Amateur Golf Championships, the odds of Emilee Klein beating Dr. Mary Budke would have been roughly the same as the odds of anyone other than Chick Hearn actually using the name Great Western Forum. For starters, Klein is 14 years old. Fourteen years is the average age of a pair of golf shoes at a municipal course.

What was supposed to be the Dream Summer for Mitch Voges of Simi Valley has suddenly become a nightmare, with creepy-crawly things lurking at every golf course he plays. The 1991 U.S. Amateur champion from Simi Valley was invited to play in the most elite tournament in the world on the merit of his stirring Amateur victory last year. So far, he has failed to make the cut in any of the big events, including the Masters, the Memorial tournament and, last week, the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach.
