  • Description

    ARNOLD PALMER, OF THE UNITED STATES, HAVING LOST THE LEAD FOUR TIMES TO THE REMORSELESS GOLF OF AUSTRALIAN KEL NAGLE, WON HIS MATCH THREE AND TWO IN THE GBP16,000 PICCADILLY WORLD MATCHPLAY TOURNAMENT AT WENTWORTH, SURREY, TODAY (THURSDAY).

    SOUTH AFRICAN GARY PLAYER, HOLDER OF THE U.S. OPEN TITLE, BEAT NEIL COLES OF BRITAIN AFTER COLES HAD OPENED WITH A MAGNIFICENT "EAGLE" THREE ON THE RUGGED "BURMA ROAD" HOLE. BUT HE WAS BEATEN FIVE AND FOUR BY THE SOUTH AFRICAN. ANOTHER BRITISH PLAYER, PETER ALLISS, ALSO LOST BY THE SAME MARGIN, GOING DOWN TO TONY LEMA OF THE UNITED STATES.

    POSSIBLY THE MOST EXCITING MATCH OF THE DAY WAS THAT BETWEEN CHRISTY O'CONNOR OF THE ROYAL DUBLIN CLUB AND PETER THOMPSON OF AUSTRALIA. AFTER 36 HOLES THEY WERE ALL SQUARE AND DARKNESS STOPPED PLAY GOING ON. PLAY HAD ALREADY BEEN DELAYED BY FOG IN THE MORNING. TOMORROW EXTRA HOLES WILL BE PLAYED AND THE WINNER MUST FACE ARNOLD PALMER OVER 36 HOLES IN THE SEMI-FINAL.

    THE OTHER SEMI-FINAL WILL BE PLAYED BETWEEN GARY PLAYER AND TONY LEMA.
