In the parlance of the players, the Hacienda Golf Club in La Habra Heights is a ball-tracker's course. The site of the 95th Southern California Golf Assn. Amateur Championship, which begins at 7 a.m. today and includes nearly two dozen players with area ties, isn't particularly long, hilly, hazard-heavy or punitive. However, because Hacienda was constructed in 1919-20, a premium is placed on accuracy.

In short, Ladin said he played defensively and promised it wouldn't happen again. Today, he attacks--even if he dies trying.
