"Got a kid named Pam Barnett who throws her wig around when she gets mad, instead of breaking clubs."
"How about the Watusi Kid? Donna Caponi. She'll dance all night and play great golf."
"Got a couple of Japanese girls on the tour now. Chako Higuchi and Marbo Sasaki."
"Hey," said Bud. "How about Sharron Moran? She's really attractive and she does these hat tricks. She's always wearing a different hat on the course. She must have 20 or more different hats."
Z-z-z-z-z-z-z. Oh, excuse me, Bud. Almost dropped off there for a minute.
The Sealy- LPGA Classic had an odd format. It was a 72-hole tournament for the girls, of course, with a hefty $10,000 going to the winner. Well, that's big for the women. It's a shrug for the guys. Anyhow, John Montgomery, the tournament director, had it all worked out that to make it different—to give it something extra—it would be played sort of like the Crosby in reverse. The lady pros would have men partners every day in what constituted four separate Pro-Ams. In other words, each day the girls would play for some extra cash, and the amateur men would compete for what appeared to be just about all of the Steuben glass that had ever been steubed.
