As if TV Pro Wrestling and SOM Basketball aren't enough, I have taken on another game, Apba golf! I have the 1971 PGA golfers and will be using the Apba rules and both Apba and ASG courses. I have a 16 event schedule, which includes mostly real events at the time, but also a few events that did not exist in 1971. 8 golfers will play each event, with a cut down to hopefully 6, but I will play that by ear.

I have divided the golfers into 4 groups: (1) the big 4, Jack, Arnie, Lee and Gary, who will each play 14 events; (2) a group of about 12 golfers (George Archer, Gene Littler etal) who will play a few events, (3) another group of 12 who will play 1 or 2 events, and (4) guys who won't play at all. If someone won an event they will at least get 1 start, and if that event is part of my schedule they will play that event. Charles Coody for example won the 1971 Masters so he will play that event. I have left open slots in the majors and other big tournaments (Players, Match Play) for guys in groups 2 and 3 who play well.

The season-opening tournament is the D.C. Open, being played at Congressional (Apba course Metro DC). First place prize money for the event is $25,000! And our good friends at Winston have promised a year's supply of smokes to the first golfer to make a hole-in-one on tour!

The first round of the 1971 DC Open is complete. The conditions were normal but the wind was blustery at Congressional, and the pin position was the extremely difficult 5, and this caused some high scores. Note that the 11th was played as a par 5.

Jack Nicklaus missed two 5' putts and a 6' but still finished -2, the only player to finish under par.

Gary Player had the most interesting round, bogeying 3 and 6 before holing out from 80 yards on the short par 4 8th (which played as the easiest hole at -6), birdying 9, 11 and 13 and bogeying 10, 12, 14 and 18 (which played as the most difficult hole, +9, with only Jack not getting a bogey or worse).

Arnold Palmer had a nice round going until he lost a ball in the trees AND found the water on 18.

After round 1 the leaderboard looks as follows:
Jack Nicklaus -2
Gene Littler +1
Gary Player +1
Johnny Miller + 2
Lee Trevino +2
Dave Eichelberger +4
Arnold Palmer +4
George Archer +5

Scoring conditions were easier on Day 2 as the course played Normal with Calm winds and the much easier Pin Position 4. All but Eichelberger shot a better round than they did on Day 1.

Player and later Nicklaus played the best as each shot a -5 67. Player shot 4 under on the front and made 2 24' birdie putts on the back 9 par 5s before hooking his 2nd shot into the water and doubling 18. Nicklaus only hit 5 Fairways but it didn't matter when your short stick was as hot as his. Jack holed a bomb from 49' and also sank one from 25'. But it wasn't just from distance - he made mid-range putts look easy too, including one from 11' and three from 10'!

Trevino shot a 70 to keep himself in it and Littler a 69 to get to red numbers.

Arnie and Eichelberger will not play the weekend

Leaderboard after round 2
Nicklaus -7 (70)(67)
Player -4 (73)(67)
Littler -2 (73)(69)
Trevino E (74)(70)
Archer +3 (77)(70)
Miller +3 (74)(73)

CUT
Palmer +5 (76)(73)
Eichelberger +9 (76)(77)
