At 18, this Bethesda, Md. high school boy is a veteran of the last two National Opens. Each time, in order to qualify, he had to outshoot a crowded field of experienced pros and amateurs in his area. So far, Deane has trailed in the Open itself, but among the titles he has collected are the Metropolitan Washington Schoolboy championship and the South Florida Amateur, both of which he has won twice. He will enter Maryland University on a golf scholarship this fall.
New to intercollegiate athletics (which it took up in 1947), the University of Houston now owns its first NCAA championship trophy, held by the four golfers who won it the other day on the 7,100-yard Ohio State course. From left are Rex Baxter (a Masters and U.S. Open veteran), Jim Hiskey, Dick Parvino, Frank Wharton. Baxter, a 20-year-old from Amarillo, also won medalist honors with a 4-under-par 140 for the 36 holes. Purdue and North Texas State tied for second.
